Who should not receive VibroAcoustic Therapy? Anyone with the following:
•    Individuals with Pacemakers
•    People with very low blood pressure
•    People with a DVT, bleeding disorder, or recent surgery
•    Individuals who have had a recent psychotic episode


What is VibroAcoustic Therapy used for? VibroAcoustic Therapy (VAT) has been studied by researchers worldwide including the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  NIH reports the benefits of using VAT for Parkinson’s, PTSD, anxiety, physical injuries, brain function, COPD, Asthma and much more.


What is the mechanism of VAT? The mechanism of action of VAT is oscillation of the human nervous system with frequencies and resonance characteristics of various muscle groups. VAT combines these resonance frequencies programs based on experimentally based effects, evaluated by patient reactions. Thousands of research hours have taught us how to use these programs to relax, to stimulate, and to relieve pain.


Can VibroAcoustic Therapy be harmful in anyway? NO. Over 30 years of treatment directly with people who have disabilities and chronic diseases and feedback from therapists and their clients show no harm of treating with Olav Skille Vibroacoustic therapy in the range of 30Hz-120Hz, low volume.


What are the New Advanced Technology Transducers? These transducers produce vibrations in the table that are incredibly accurate and smooth. The transducers are highly reliable and produce very little heat, unlike inexpensive transducers. They are capable of producing accurate vibration from below 5 to over 1000 Hz. as well as sound well over 20 kHz. The energy is delivered so cleanly that the brain interprets the stimulus as Sound, not Shaking™. They also are able to produce a strong vibration without the volume being excessively high – more like background music. 


Are transducers like speakers? Audio speakers are meant to produce sound. They are made to produce sound pressure waves that move through the air and that we hear and sometimes feel - such as subwoofers in cars with the volume turned way up. A transducers primary function is to take the same audio input as a speaker and turn it into physical vibration. Secondarily, sound is produced. Our transducers produce very good sound unlike lower quality transducers. Our high end transducers are highly accurate and reliable. They also produce very little heat, unlike inexpensive transducers.


Who can benefit from  VibroAcoustic Therapy ? VibroAcoustic Therapy may be an independent therapy or incorporated with physical, medical treatment, psychotherapy and alternative therapy. In addition, VibroAcoustic Therapy is a natural energy booster and pain killer that is composed of varieties of frequencies therapy solutions which can be used as a self management tool after training, it is beneficial  to consumers such as people with chronic or special need people, businesses, sport people, students and regular people that want to apply preventive and integrative wellness therapy.


What should I expect at my VibroAcoustic Therapy visit? Clients can dress down to their comfort level or remove only their shoes. Once comfortable we will have you lay down on our liquid treatment table topped with a weighted blanket. Then a team member will choose the frequencies and music to address the issues indicated and turns on the equipment.  You will begin to feel the gentle vibrational frequencies through the water mattress and hear the soothing music through the headset. 


The Team member will then leave you in the room to enjoy your session for 30-45 minutes.  It usually takes about 20 minutes for the relaxation response to begin in the body and clients report feeling many pleasant sensations.  Abstract thinking slows and body and mind awareness expands.  Some people experience a dream-like, or deep meditative state.  Others fall asleep, report seeing colors, experience clarity and new insight and feel relief of pain or symptoms.


When the session is over, the team member will return to the room to gently turn down the vibrational frequencies and music. 


How long will a session last? The impact of your session is usually long lasting.  Many report feeling the impact for between two and five days after treatment.  Your body will experience deep relaxation similar to a full night’s sleep, which promotes less stress during the day and sounder sleep at night.


How often should I schedule my VibroAcoustic Therapy session? Research shows best results occur with cumulative sessions for between 10 - 12 weeks.  We recommend a minimum treatment schedule of 8 weeks for the majority of cases, either once or twice per week.  More chronic conditions require 2-3 times per week.


Clients usually notice a difference in after 3 sessions.  More chronic conditions require 3 months of regular sessions to show lasting signs of improvement.
