Before starting addiction therapy, many patients wonder what types of treatments can be utilized to help them recover. One effective form of treatment is one that many have never experienced or even heard of before: biosound therapy. This tactic uses biofeedback, sound, music, and guided imagery to lead the patient to a meditative state. When the patient enters this state of relaxation, they listen to positive affirmations that affect them on a subconscious level. Anyone can benefit from biosound therapy, but it is especially effective for people prone to substance abuse. The process might sound unusual, but addiction professionals ensure that the patient is comfortable for every step of the experience.
What to Expect
When it is time to begin biosound therapy, professionals will speak with the patient about any hesitations they may have concerning the treatment. When the patient is ready to begin, they lie down in a comfortable biosound bed and the administrator of the therapy encourages them to relax. Then, biosound sensor glasses are placed on the patient, which display guided imagery to keep their mind on a positive and encouraging track. As the patient views the images, they begin to listen to binaural beats. These are sounds that have been shown to alter brain waves and make the human mind more receptive to positive mantras and affirmations. In addition to a visual and audio experience, biosound therapy incorporates bed vibrations to sooth the patient. When the patient enters an altered state, they listen to messages that encourage a positive path forward.
What Patients Feel
Altogether, the components of biosound therapy reduce stress and increase focus for patients. Many patients look forward to their next session of biosound therapy, because they can expect relief and relaxation that is difficult to achieve in any other setting. Throughout the day, stress can build up in a person, and they may have no idea that they are going through life in a state of anger or frustration. Biosound therapy works to help the patient access subconscious roadblocks and let go of them. The world often makes people feel the need to suppress their emotions, but biosound therapy allows them to become more in tune with them. Recovering from addiction is often challenging because of withdrawal symptoms, and biosound therapy serves as a way to reduce these exaggerated sensations and help the patient focus on the positive in life.
Long Term Effects
Biosound therapy often has a profound impact on patients. Many people who receive this treatment feel an ongoing sense of relief throughout their daily lives. The more a patient receives biosound therapy, the more noticeable the effects are for them. That’s why we always recommend that our patients take a few sessions before deciding whether it’s right for them. When biosound therapy works as intended, the patient feels like a weight has been lifted off their shoulders. Cravings for drugs and alcohol are powerful, but with the help of biosound therapy, a patient can better understand how to react to these feelings. Biosound therapy allows patients to see themselves as a strong person rather than a suffering addict.
The best way to recover from addiction is by utilizing multiple forms of treatment, and biosound therapy can be an important piece of the puzzle. At Design For Change Recovery, our team works hard to make the experience worthwhile for our patients. If you’re suffering from an addiction, our goal is to help you overcome the disease and feel comfortable every step of the way. Biosound therapy complements other forms of treatment, such as family counseling, to create a well-rounded support system for each patient. Want to learn more about family counseling?
