what is Vibrational sound THERAPY?
Effects on the body
Vibrational Sound Therapy (VST) combines powerful vibration and tones to induce an immediate relaxed state. The induction of the sound waves directly into the body, along with soothing ambient tones, is such a strong treatment that clients report effects ranging from a meditative state to deep relaxation. By placing the “therapeutic” singing bowls directly on the body, and using correct techniques, a practitioner engages with their client both physically, and aurally. Also known as vibrational sound massage.
Effects on the mind
Vibrational Sound Therapy (VST) has profound effects on the body and mind. The VST method is above all a method of relaxation. During a VST session the body may enter deeper and deeper states of rest. Relaxation is not only a physical state but also a state of consciousness, and VST has very strong effects on alertness and perception. Relaxation during a VST session brings on the same kind of brain states as meditation, daydreaming or pre-sleep. This relaxed state allows the body to repair itself instead of responding to outside concerns.
the VST method
In the VST method, the client remains fully clothed and is never touched directly by the practitioner. In fact, because the singing bowl is doing most of the physical work, contact is kept to a minimum. This does not diminish the connection between the client and practitioner, because spiritual intimacy is maintained through the sound and the vibration transmitted through the bowl.
