Vibroacoustic Therapy, VAT for short, is a low-frequency sound massage that uses sound waves between 30Hz to 120Hz. These are sent out to the body via transducers that are placed within the bed. The sound will gently spread through and into your body’s cells, massaging the body both from within and without. The water will perfectly transmit the sounds and vibrations, more so because our bodies are made of 60% water. Your body will bathe in the soothing sounds and relaxing vibrations as you float in amazing comfort.
Vibroacoustic Therapy can be done as an independent activity or be used alongside medical treatment, psychotherapy, or both. VAT is beneficial to those with chronic or special needs, as well as anyone that is looking for integrative and preventative wellness therapy. VAT is like a natural energy booster and pain reliever that can also be used as a self-management tool thanks to the many different frequencies therapy solutions.
Vibroacoustic Therapy has been the subject of study for researchers and institutes around the world, such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Many report the positive benefits of using Vibroacoustic Therapy for PTSD, anxiety, brain functions, Parkinson’s, Asthma, COPD, and others.

Noted Benefits of Vibroacoustic Therapy:
The core mechanism of VAT is the vibration of the nervous system by using specific frequencies to hit the resonance characteristics of the different muscle groups. These combinations of resonance frequencies are based on well-known effects found through experiments and further evaluated by patients and their reactions. Countless research hours have now taught us that these programs can be used to help someone relax, be stimulated, and find relief from pain.
At the start of your Vibroacoustic Therapy, you will get the chance to be comfortable, either by dressing down to your most comfortable or just be removing your shoes. Once ready, you will lay down on our liquid treatment table. The table is topped with either a weighted or regular blanket. A team member will then choose the music (which you will hear through a headset) and frequencies to target your noted issues.
Once the machine is turned on, you will start to feel a gentle vibration through the water mattress. You will also hear soothing music coming from your headset. You will be left alone to enjoy your session in the room, which can last between 30 to 60 minutes. Your body’s relaxation response should begin around 20 minutes into the session.
You will begin to experience a number of pleasant sensations. Your abstract thinking will slow, while the awareness of your body and mind will expand. You may also experience going into a deep meditative or dream-like state, possibly even falling asleep. You may start to experience a level of clarity or insight whilst feeling relief from your pain or symptoms.
Once the session is close to ending, we will return to your room and gently turn everything down, like the vibrational frequencies and music, and then off.
