What is Vibroacoustic Therapy?

Vibro = vibration

Acoustic = sound

Vibroacoustic therapy involves the use of low frequency vibrations and sound to stimulate body cells into therapeutic states of relaxation and healing.

The technology for this therapy was created in the 1980s in Norway by Olav Skille.

Vibroacoustic Therapy (VAT) may be used as an independent therapy or incorporated with other therapeutic modalities for deeper healing experiences.


Some Benefits of Vibroacoustic Therapy:

Activation of the parasympathetic (rest, heal & digest) nervous system

Improved sleep

Reduction in stress, anxiety, depression

Reduce body pain

Increase whole body circulation

Reduce blood pressure

Reduce healing time

Increased focus and concentration

Regulate limbic system (emotional memories)

Deep meditation

How does it work?

Brain Entrainment

Entrainment [physics]: a phenomenon that occurs when one rhythmic vibrating frequency synchronizes with another.

Sound, through music, is used to coax the brain using specific frequencies that stimulate brain waves into different therapeutic states.



Transducers within the bed are synced with the low frequency sound waves, creating vibrations. This low frequency tactile stimulation reaches the cellular level encouraging increased circulation and decreased pain. It’s like an internal massage for your cells.


Brain Stimulation

Low frequency waves stimulate healthy, balanced neural connections helping to downregulate the nervous system (stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system).


Persons with the following conditions should exercise caution and consult with your physician or other medical professional before using trying vibroacoustic therapy:

  • acute inflammatory conditions
  • pregnancy
  • deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • hypotonia
  • epilepsy
  • active bleeding
  • psychotic conditions

Yes! Vibroacoustic therapy enhances the effectiveness of other modalities and is a wonderful pairing. VAT may be added to your session for $50 and depending on the modality, may need to be scheduled in advance.

The vibroacoustic therapy mat is on the treatment table and is turned on when you’re ready for your session. Unless added on to another modality, you’ll be offered an eye pillow, headphones for a fully immersive sound healing experience and a blanket to keep you warm and cozy.
