Vibrational Sound Practitioner

Offering Vibrational Sound Sessions

Vibrational Sound Therapy (VST) has profound effects on the body, and  the mind. The VST method is above all a method of relaxation, and most  people will reach this state of relaxation quickly, even during their  first session. During a VST session or “sound massage” the body will go through noticeable changes as it responds to deeper, and deeper states of rest. Relaxation is not only a physical state but also a state of  consciousness, and VST has very strong effects on alertness, and perception. Relaxation during a VST session brings on the same kind of brain states as yoga, tai chi, and meditation.  

Benefits of Sound on the Body

Most clients will start to relax as soon as the session begins. Their muscles will lose tension, and they may even start to slip into the alpha brain wave pattern within the first minutes. The alpha wave pattern is associated with daydreaming, and pre-sleep. At this point the  clients breathing, and heart rate will start to slow down, and the body will begin to absorb the waves of vibration into its tissues. The slowing of breathing, and lack of muscle tension are both signs that the metabolism is slowing. Insulin levels will rise, and cholesterol levels will fall. As the heart rate slows, blood pressure falls, and arteries expand giving rise to a feeling of warmth. This relaxed state allows the  body to repair itself instead of responding to outside concerns. The  immune system is at its best when we are relaxed. 

Sound Massage for Deep Relaxation

 VST is so gentle, and relaxing that almost all people will fall asleep at some point during the session. The theta brain wave state is associated with meditation, sleep, and deep relaxation. The delta brain  state is a deeper form of sleep, and is also associated with hypnosis,  and ritual. During normal sleep, people will oscillate between both of  these states. The brain wave state of clients undergoing a sound massage  will change naturally, and in reaction to the modality, as positions  are changed, and different bowls are introduced. 


Those who undergo a state of deep relaxation often report a feeling of  mental freshness that they carry with them after the session is over.  Relaxation and meditative states of mind have also been shown to  increase the threshold for emotional response, meaning they can help us  control our emotional responses to outside influences. Like other kinds  of meditation, sound massage can help us be more internally aware, while  being more present in the moment, and more connected with our  surroundings.
