Vibrational Sound Therapy, or VST, is a method of deep relaxation using Himalayan singing bowls in which sound and vibration travel to the points in your body where there is resistance, tension, or stored emotion. While VST is not meant to diagnose or cure any disease, the use of sound and vibration can allow your body to relax enough for the potential of healing to occur.
VST is a great modality for most people, especially those who are not able to receive massage therapy or who just don't prefer it. It can produce a meditative state that is therapeutic and enjoyable. Many clients report feeling deeply relaxed and, in some cases, fall into a meditative state or deep sleep. This happens because of the combination of vibration and sound when the singing bowl is placed on or near the body.
Vibrational Sound Therapy can reduce your stress and anxiety levels while enhancing overall well-being. It can also help improve sleep quality by calming the nervous system and promoting a sense of tranquility. Finally, VST has been discovered to activate the innate healing process of the body, providing support for both physical and emotional healing.
