Vibroacoustics Research and Techniques

Clinical Research in Hospitals and Institutions:


Ongoing since 1995, the National Institutes of Health runs the most extensive program in the U.S. for vibroacoustic pain and symptom reduction, treating over 50,000 patients per year. In measuring the physiological and behavioral effectiveness of these interventions with 267 patients, Dr. Patrick George found over a 47.36% to 60.97% reduction of pain and symptoms.

 

Tests done with cancer and chemotherapy patients at the Jupiter Medical Center in Florida found similar results: 62.8% reduction of anxiety, 61.6% reduction of fatigue and between 61% to 74% decrease of pain for 27 patients in 41 vibroacoustics sessions.

 

A study at Duke University Medical Center also reported significant pain reduction for 20 women who had surgery for various cancers. Also at Duke, vibroacoustics was tested in physical therapy following total knee replacements, showing an increased range of motion. Heart surgeons using vibroacoustics therapy during cardiac surgery recovery found significant decreases in patients' use of sedative and pain medication, time spent on the ventilator, time spent in the cardiac unit, and overall time spent in the hospital.

 

These are but a few of the many studies on vibroacoustics. Many point to the effectiveness of the therapy in triggering the Relaxation Response. Physiologically, the relaxation response initiates the following changes:


• Reduces oxygen consumption 
• Decreases blood pressure
• Slows heart rate
• Slows respiration rate
• Relaxes muscles


Mentally, deep relaxation:

  • Changes brainwave frequencies (generally slowing down from beta to alpha and alpha to theta

      or delta)
   • Clears the mind from anxiety
   • Creates a feeling of calm and peacefulness

 

As an additional benefit, vibroacoustics can help people to learn to recognize the state of relaxation and, over time, become able to reach relaxation at will. Vibroacoustics is a great way to learn how to relax and develop relaxation as a daily habit!
