Vibroacoustic therapy is a form of treatment that involves employing sound to produce vibrations which are applied to the body. This emerging type of therapy is simple and non-invasive, making it popular with many health centers.
Vibroacoustic therapy was first thought to be introduced sometime between 1970 and 1980, pioneered by Norwegian therapist, Olav Skille. After having experimented with vibroacoustic extensively, Skille found that this therapy was beneficial for many different symptoms, such as the management of pain and relief from tension.
Vibroacoustic therapy uses two principles to restore the body. First, it stimulates the body with mechanical vibrations produced by music to deliver a deep massage. The second principle is entrainment which refers to how one rhythm tends to influence another rhythm. Moods are largely determined by the state of our brain waves, however certain music can influence our brains to be in another state.
