Holistic treatments are gaining popularity as more and more individuals find success with them. Biosound therapy is a holistic treatment that uses sound and vibration to stimulate healing. It’s most commonly used to treat addiction, depression, and anxiety.
In a biosound therapy appointment, the patient lays on a memory foam bed. The patient is guided into a state of meditation through binaural beats, music, and vibration. The patient wears a special pair of glasses that display videos and deliver positive affirmations.
The first stage which lasts about 15 minutes is designed to induce a meditative state through music therapy. In this stage a client will usually experience a decrease in racing thoughts. The next stage of the treatment includes a guided meditation that includes positive affirmations being played for the client. The final stage is designed to address the shame, fear, and trauma underlying addiction. The idea is to overcome the deep rooted negative thought patterns.
The final state integrates a biofeedback program. This is designed to help clients manage their emotions, something many recovering from drug and alcohol addiction never learned to do. Learning new techniques to manage emotions can reduce the likelihood of relapse.
In biosound therapy, the heart and brain become synchronized. This leads to a state of relaxation. Experiencing relaxation without drugs or alcohol for someone dealing with an addiction can be a critical step in recovery. The therapy sessions have been reported to reduce withdrawal symptoms, increase self-awareness, in addition to a reduction in anxiety or depression. Patients report a reduction in the feelings of fear through the guided imagery.
The creators of biosound therapy report 4 key elements to the therapy sessions:
- Binaural beats induce a theta level meditative state
- Low frequency vibrations trigger a natural relaxation response
- Coherent heart rhythm patterns synchronize the body
- Positive affirmations develop mindfulness and awareness
Biosound therapy is a non-invasive treatment that is beneficial for treating individuals with co-occurring disorders. A co-occurring disorder is a mental health disorder paired with a substance use disorder. Some examples include alcoholism with depression or drug addiction with bipolar disorder. It does not involve any narcotics or any medications added to the body. There are no side effects.
If you or a loved one are seeking treatment for recovery, holistic therapies like biosound therapy may aid recovery. It can be a helpful addition to more traditional recovery treatments. You deserve the best care available.
