Vibrational Sound Therapy or VST is a relaxation method using therapeutic bronze singing bowls directly on the body. It is a structured modality that uses these ancient tools in a modern clinical setting. It decreases the effects of stress on the body and mind while improving emotional well-being. During a relaxed state the body can repair itself instead of responding to outside concerns. The immune system works best when we are relaxed.
During a session you remain fully dressed and are not touched by the practitioner. You lie on a massage table and have therapeutic singing bowls placed on and/or around your body. A gentle strike is used to create vibration from the bowls. This vibration along with the soothing tones induces a deep relaxation and meditative state.
Therapeutic singing bowls are rich with overtones, have a subdued volume and a purity of tone, while providing a strong vibration. Since our bodies are mostly water and water carries vibration like ripples from a pebble dropped in a pool of water, VST therapy effectively transfers energy through out the body. As the vibration travels thru the body to every cell it relaxes the muscles.
VST is helpful with:
Quickly introducing deep meditative states
Helps alleviate occasional nervous irritability
Easing blockages and tension
Reduces the effects of stress
Raising focus and gaining a clear mind
Calming the mind, body and spirit
