All treatments are effective when used alone or paired, and work very synergistically with cannabis treatment as well.
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.
Bioacoustic Mat and Brainwaves
Brainwaves are the electrical pulses responsible for the communication between the neurons in your brains. The state of your brain and how your day is going have an inseparable relationship.
Using an EEG (electroencephalography), a small metal band fitted with sensors that rests on your head, you can measure your brain activity. Some of these might sound familiar to you, alpha waves, theta waves, delta waves. These different waves accompany the different types of emotional states.
Types of Brainwaves
Delta brainwaves are slow, loud waves. These waves suspend our external awareness and are associated with the deepest stages of sleep. Research has found that delta waves contribute to regulating many of our unconscious bodily functions, as well as giving us more restful sleep.
Theta brainwaves occur most often during sleep, where we experience greater imagery and information than our normal consciousness. Theta waves provide a positive mental state, encourages creativity, and are associated with learning and memory.
Alpha brainwaves occur during quiet thought. This brainwave can be recognized as the resting state of the brain. Alpha waves aid us in keeping calm and coordinating thoughts.
Beta brainwaves dominate waking consciousness. This type of wave is generated when attention is directed towards cognitive tasks. Beta waves are described as fast and are present when we are engaged and focused.
And finally, we have Gamma brainwaves, the fastest of brainwaves. This wave passes information quickly, and because of how quiet this wave is, it was first dismissed as “spare brain noise”. Gamma waves are more of a recent discovery, so our understanding of them is still evolving, but it is speculated that they play a role in how we engage with our consciousness.
Red and Yellow Light Therapy
Known as the Orange wavelength, these lights are combined to make us feel quite cheerful and are often recommended by psychotherapists because they are found to be beneficial for anxiety, depression and types of depression associated with bipolar disorder.
Of course many people also love Red Light therapy alone as it penetrates into the skin 1-6mm which allows it to promote collagen proliferation, improving wrinkles, making it an effective anti-aging treatment as well.
