Our bodies respond to a multitude of external stimuli and when any injury or other malady impacts us all that we crave is relief.

Vibroacoustic therapy equipment can be another tool in the toolbox in order to overcome a wide variety of issues or symptoms.

What Is Vibroacoustic Therapy?

There is a good chance you may never have heard about vibroacoustic therapy. By using sound waves and vibrations, vibroacoustic therapy can relax multiple parts of the body. Vibroacoustic therapy was designed 40 years ago by an Estonian physician named Prof. Saima Tamm and can be paired with a multitude of other therapies. After these 40 years of research, vibroacoustic therapy has shown positive results in treating many problems including:

  • Increasing blood circulation
  • Reducing blood pressure
  • Reducing stress
  • Minimizing pain
  • Promoting serenity
  • Deep tissue massage
  • Sensory awareness
  • Reduce nausea, fatigue, and depression

As you can see, there are a multitude of benefits that vibroacoustic therapy can help with. Vibroacoustic therapy (VAT) has immediate effects as well as some that can appear hours or even days after your therapy session. This is a drug-free, noninvasive way to promote pain and anxiety relief. By doing this you can create a positive environment in which to heal and increase your quality of life.
