What is Sound Therapy?

Sound therapy, for the uninitiated, might sound like a new-age thing, being done to give paying customers an alternative to traditional therapy. However, you will be surprised to know that this is not a new practice at all.

For centuries now, people have used sounds to calm themselves, to feel at ease, or to envelop themselves with peace. Sound therapists build on this approach to provide healing to their patients. At Avatar Rehab, you will find trained sound therapists who believe that human bodies are made through different energy frequencies. By playing various sound frequencies, they interact and heal the body’s frequencies to restore them to their natural predisposition.

This therapy just like any other therapy at Avatar Rehab is tailored to the patient’s need. Our therapists will work with you to understand your medical history and the issues that currently ail you. They will then create the required frequencies for your therapy. Sound therapy will include sounds of various instruments such as tuning forks, bells, gongs, bowls, drums, and even their voice.

By cocooning you in positive sound frequencies, they will help you de-stress and calm your body. This will help refocus your energy towards a more positive outlook, lower your stress levels and help you in getting the most out of your treatment.

Vibroacoustic Therapy (VAT), a subset of sound therapy designed by an Estonian physician Prof. Saima Tamm, is often used in conjunction with other therapies to increase blood circulation, reduce blood pressure, minimize pain, give deep tissue massage, reduce nausea, fatigue, promote serenity. We at Avatar provide VAT to our patients when needed as it has instant positive effects as well as long-term effects which appear hours or days after the therapy sessions. It is a non-invasive treatment to induce relief from anxiety and pain.

What is Music Therapy?

Music therapy at Avatar involves the use of music in a therapeutic relationship with the aim of meeting the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive needs of our patients. It is an evidence-based clinical therapy that involves creating music, singing, moving to moving, and listening to music with a qualified music therapist. Research has proven that music therapy helps in overall physical rehabilitation, improves movement, motivates patients to be more involved in their treatment, gives emotional support, and gives a platform for better communication and expression.

Music therapy has a profound influence on the human brain as it can enhance the working of neural networks, increase the production of dopamine and serotonin, and reduce the level of stress hormones.

Music therapy helps in augmenting cognitive performance – igniting creativity, inducing positive thoughts, sustained attention, and much more. As a leader in the medical rehabilitation industry, Avatar boasts of having meticulous qualified music therapists capable of designing treatment strategies suitable for each individual to overcome alcohol and drug addiction.

Music Therapy for Addiction Treatment

Music therapy develops positive outlooks, elevates moods, and brings relaxation as well.

Research shows that music therapy is immensely effective for substance abuse treatment as patients reports increases in relaxation and energy levels and decreases in impulsiveness. A study by Baker et al in 2007 concludes that “Participants reported that music therapy was beneficial in allowing them to experience emotions without the need for substance abuse.”

Sound Therapy for Addiction Recovery

Addiction at its core is not just about the body, in fact, studies show that while your body will start recovering from addiction, you will still have a tough battle for your mental wellbeing and to truly get rid of your addiction. This is a multi-stage battle that starts early on when you first start experiencing withdrawal symptoms and lasts till the very end when despite going through the whole treatment you are still coping with the stress of reshaping your life.
