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.
