Introduction to Vibroacoustic Therapy
Co-founder at inHarmony Interactive
Every particle in the universe vibrates, as everything in the universe is made of energy. These vibrations occur at different frequencies, meaning that there are distinct “vibes” to different people, places, and things.
Vibroacoustic technology is a tool that uses these concepts to relax and soothe the body and the brain, which enhances our experience with meditation and mindfulness and thus improves our quality of life.
Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of exposing yourself to “good vibrations” with vibroacoustic therapy and to discover how inHarmony has used this technology to create products that help you meditate more effectively.
What Is Vibroacoustic Therapy?
The benefits of vibroacoustic therapy extend beyond getting relief from phsyical pain. Vibroacoustic treatments have also been shown to induce a state of relaxation in patients in hospital settings. This effect is also helpful when it comes to deepening meditative states.
How Do Vibroacoustics Work?
Sound frequencies that are processed by the right equipment can become mechanical vibrations that are felt by the user of that equipment. This technique can be used alone or alongside music, tones, and other audio that help to enhance the vibroacoustic experience.
A product such as the inHarmony Practitioner mixes sound and vibration therapy with the help of audio transducers and headphones and/or ambient speakers. The user’s meditative and mindfulness experience can be improved from the tactile and audio feedback they receive, as they can enter a meditative state more quickly and sustain it for a longer time. How?
Influencing Our Own Frequencies
Our brains produce brainwaves of different frequencies, which are present during different states of consciousness. For example, very high-frequency brain waves (Gamma) are present in times of alertness and focused concentration, and very low-frequency brainwaves (Delta) are present in deep, dreamless sleep.
When we are exposed to different frequencies in the form of audio and vibration during vibroacoustic therapy, our brainwaves (and other cells in our bodies) can be positively affected and optimized for meditation and relaxation.
Simply put, frequencies can be transformed into a physical and auditory experience which then have an influence on the frequency of our cells. This effect is what induces feelings of relaxation and encourages sustained meditative states in users.
Why It Matters
Taking your meditative practice into your own hands with the help of vibroacoustic technology opens up a whole new world of possibilities. All of the benefits of vibroacoustic therapy are still being researched, but the reviews of inHarmony’s products speak for themselves.
Adding this kind of therapy into your daily routine or making it a part of your scheduled meditation and mindfulness practice can have both immediate and long-term positive effects on your mental, physical, and spiritual health journeys.
