Tournesol Vibroacoustics

What is Vibroacoustic Sound Therapy?

Vibroacoustic Sound Therapy (VAT) is a science-based treatment that uses mild sound and gentle vibrations to reduce stress, relieve pain, restore balance and enhance the quality of life.  VAT frequencies swiftly produce an extraordinary relaxation response in the body without the use of invasive interventions, or medication.

 Vibroacoustic frequencies range between 30Hz and 120Hz and are applied directly to the body through a treatment table topped with a water-filled mattress. 

Vibroacoustic therapy is a noninvasive, safe therapy that has demonstrated ability to decrease pain, reduce anxiety, reduce the symptoms of illness and generally promotes health in many patients.”
— Chris Boyd-Brewer, Ruth McCaffrey (2004). Vibroacoustic Sound Therapy Improves Pain Management and More. Holistic Nursing Practice, 18(3): 111 - 118

What to Expect During Your Session

During your Vibroacoustic session at Tournesol you recline fully clothed on our liquid sound table.  Your specialist will review your primary symptoms and goals with you.  She will then design a customized playlist of targeted Vibroacoustic frequencies to address your individual needs.

As the session begins you will feel gentle vibrations through the water mattress and soothing music through the speakers, or headphones.  After about 5 minutes, the relaxation response begins in the body and most clients report feeling many pleasant sensations.  Abstract thinking slows and body and mind awareness expands.  Some people experience a dream-like, or deep meditative state.  Others fall asleep, report seeing colors, experience clarity and new insight and feel relief of pain or symptoms.

The impact of one session is usually long lasting.  Many report feeling the effects for between two and five days post treatment.  Your body will experience deep relaxation similar to a full night’s sleep, which promotes less stress during the day and sounder sleep at night.
