Vibrational Sound Therapy is a method of professionally using singing bowls and other sound instruments on and around the body for therapy and relaxation. VSM has profound effects on the body and mind, and most people will reach this state of relaxation quickly. During a “sound massage” the body will go through noticeable changes as it responds to deeper and deeper states of rest.
Relaxation and meditative states of mind have also been shown to increase the threshold for emotional response, meaning they can help us control our emotional response to outside influences. Like other kinds of meditation, sound massage can help us be more internally aware, while being more present in the moment, and more connected with our surroundings. Relaxation during VSM bring on the same kind of brain states as yoga, tai chi, and meditation.
