Getting your vibes in order { Vibroacoustic Therapy }

Vibroacoustic Therapy

Right before the new year I went to Tournesol Wellness to try out EFT to reduce stress, and they invited me back to try Vibroacoustic Therapy. As I was sitting down to write this post, I was feeling overwhelmed and over tired – but I figured this would be a great way to talk about another remedy for when you’re not feeling well. 

First, let me explain what Vibroacoutic Therapy is as defined by Tournesol Wellness:

An experience exclusive to Tournesol in New York City, Vibroacoustic Therapy uses sound and vibrational frequencies to target areas of the body that are out of balance.  Reclining on a liquid sound table in a custom designed sound therapy room, clients enjoy a supremely relaxing treatment that restores balance to the body, strengthening our own natural mechanisms of healing. 

In Lahmen’s terms, you are laying on the water bed pictured above and specific vibrations are used to target various ailments (mental, physical, and emotional). Interesting, right?

This was my first time laying on a water bed since grade school when I used to sneak into my best friend’s parents bedroom and play on their water bed. Laying on the bed without the vibrations was soothing enough!

However, as I lay on the table for about 45 minutes, I slowly began to relax and unwind as I felt the vibrations on various parts of my body. I mentioned that I was coping with knee pain in the beginning of the session, and by the time I left, my knee no longer ached.

Vibroacoustic Therapy Tournesol WellnessThe entire table is controlled by 2 iPads and the middle piece which is similar to a DJ booth but it combines the vibrations and sounds to create a customized treatment. 

Many people have found Vibroacoustic Therapy to assist with chronic and acute pain, neurological issues, Parkinson’s Disease, asthma, and surgery recovery for knee and hip replacements and/or rehabilitation. However – this system can also be used for reducing stress, increasing blood circulation, reducing anxiety/depression, organ massage, and much more. When I scrolled through the available vibrational frequencies, I saw dozens of options for everyday and chronic ailments. 

I personally think this system could also be great for someone who isn’t a fan of traditional massages or Reiki. I have a friend who just isn’t a fan of being touched – so a relaxing therapy like this would be perfect for her.

In the beginning of the appointment, I was simply asked about anything that I needed help with and then a vibrational sequence was created for me. The practitioner may ask if you are open to having a brief Reiki sessions to uncover any other ailments, but you can always opt out if you are uncomfortable. I lay on the bed and confirmed that the intensity of the vibration was okay (since you can adjust it to make it harder or softer), and then I was alone in the room. 

Overall, I enjoyed this experience at Tournesol Wellness and appreciated having a freebie appointment to test it out and share with ya’ll! If you’ve been reading MY for awhile – you’ll see that I’m really up for anything that promises to make me feel better.

When was the last time you were on a water bed? Could you see yourself trying Vibroacoustic Therapy?

  1. Thanks Kimberley, I also hadn’t heard of this system. It sounds promising. I must say that I am curious to try a session, and also wonder how the therapist knows the level to offer the client.
