VIBRATIONAL SOUND THERAPY
Mindie Hung VSTLCP, Reiki
Sound and vibration can be used to re-tune us to health and one of the most powerful modalities for this is the use of Himalayan singing bowls. When there is a deep relaxation through soothing, resonant sound, the body is affected on a cellular level, opening up the flow of energy to move us back toward vibrational alignment with health.
"Those who undergo a state of deep relaxation often report a feeling of mental freshness that they carry with them after the session is over. Relaxation and meditative states of mind have also been shown to increase the threshold for emotional response, meaning they can help us control our emotional responses to outside influences. Like other kinds of meditation, sound massage (VST) can help us be more internally aware while being more present in the moment and more connected with our surroundings.” - Vibrational Sound Association
What are some of the benefits of Vibrational Sound Therapy?
- The Limbic System is signaled to return to a calm state, and over time helps the body to become better at self-regulation and more resilient to stressors.
- The Relaxation Response is activated, which creates a cascade of positive physical and emotional health benefits.
- The heart rate slows and heart rate variability (HRV) improves, which is an indicator of stress resilience.
- Blood pressure lowers, which reduces the risk of stroke and heart attack.
- Muscles relax, which in turn can reduce pain from tension and spasms.
- Pain lessens through a combination of increased relaxation and an increase of “happy” hormones.
- Circulation increases, which nourishes the cells and organs.
