What is vibroacoustic therapy?

Vibroacoustic therapy (VAT) is a science-based therapy that uses mild sound and gentle vibrations to reduce stress, relieve pain, restore balance and enhance the quality of life. VAT frequencies range between 30Hz and 120Hz and are applied directly to the body through special speakers called transducers. The transducers can be embedded within some sort of furniture such as portable mats, mattresses, massage tables, custom tables with water bladders, beds and recliners.

As a person’s body has contact with the embedded speakers, the music is sent from the source into the transducers and is then felt by the body as vibration and heard by the ears as sound. The vibro-tactile input stimulates nerve bundles along the spine, up into the brain stem and then through the limbic system. In addition, the sound stimulates the medulla in the brain stem and activates the auditory nerve that connects with all the muscles of the body.

These reactions signal the body to relax and flood the brain with mood lifting chemicals. In addition, the low frequencies also cause a relaxation of the tissues, and a dilation of blood vessels and an opening of the lymphatic pathways which in turn increases the body’s ability to heal.
