It simply allows the body to flourish in relaxed state so that it can heal itself. VST is not a substitute for accepted medical practice, I fact it can support and strengthen the impact of medical practice to be more effective.
Vibrational sound relaxes the body so that its functions can carry on in a relaxed state doing what they were meant to do, rather than spending energy responding to stress, depression and anxiety. Marie provides individual sessions using therapeutic bronze bowls for on-body and near body sound relaxation. For individual and group sound baths, she uses the bronze bowls, crystal singing bowls and other percussion instruments to produce a calming and interesting sound experience.

How Can Sound Help Heal?
Sound influences us;
Physiologically- through the nervous system
Psychologically - effecting our emotions
Cognitively - revising our focus
Behaviorally - the way, the speed, and the intensity with which we act, react, move, and speak
Acute, intermittent or chronic - stress often precludes focus and produces anxiety.
Vibrational sound therapy relaxes tense muscles, allows the brain to relax and focus to increase.
Anxiety & Depression
A 2020 review notes that sound therapy can significantly alter brain waves, changing agitated wave patterns to exceptionally calm wave forms.2
Goldsby TL, Goldsby ME. Eastern integrative medicine and ancient sound healing treatments for stress: Recent research advances. Integr Med (Encinitas). 2020;19(6):24-30.
As our brain waves slow down, we shift from an active state to a more relaxed, dreamlike state, says Auster.
In this state, our breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure decrease.3 This helps our immune system function more efficiently, reduces our stress hormones, and triggers the release of feel-good chemicals in the brain
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder has been treated with music as an acceptable form of cognitive therapy. Many people who suffer PTSD have been helped with memory intrusions, emotional upsets and hyperarousal through sound therapy. It is a form of music therapy and can reduce the force of symptoms through simple relaxation. Prior to beginning a session we will test the sounds for signs of trigger and discuss bowl placement and sound strength to avoid any unpleasant sounds for you, the client.
The more we tense our body, the deeper we feel pain. For people with chronic and acute pain, sound healing helps to relax the body so it can do the work of healing itself.
After two sessions of Vibrational Sound Therapy, I noticed immediate stress release and relaxation with improved sleep patterns. I have suffered from PTSD since 2017 after I was hit head on by a drunk driver. Since my VST sessions my PTSD symptoms have improved. Comparing my VST experience to a deep tissue massage, I have experienced more healing at a deeper level, stress reduction and renewal of energy. I look forward to my next session. FS, RN-BSN
I felt like I'd had a full massage. I am a little averse to massage, and this is the best alternative. The relaxation was from the inside out. JM
It was hypnotic, total relaxation, no talking, no worry. This is what needs to happen when I get overwhelmed with my life. JJ
I have PTSD and this is a helpful way to find some calm for myself. PF
I had never tried vibrational sound therapy before my session with Marie. I didn't now what to expect, but was delighted by the experience. At the end of the session I felt relaxed and had the mental clarity that I needed for some important decisions, Marie was wonderful at facilitating the experience. I will definitely be a repeat customer. TH
Vibrational Sound Healing
"On the body" sound work is a relaxation therapy technique that is performed for a fully clothed client, and requires no touch. In a typical session, light metal bowls are purposefully placed on and around the body and activated by striking with a padded felt mallet. The result is a soothing sound and subtle vibration that is relaxing to the client. The technique is taught by an accredited organization whose training includes establish standards and ethics.”
It has been described as a nervous system reset, and a massage without touch.
It is basically a relaxation technique which reduces tensions in the body. It is referred to as a nervous system or brain reset.
At the end of a successful session, you feel as if you’ve had a full-body massage, without removing your clothes or having hands work your muscles.
By striking the bowls in rhythmic succession your body becomes attuned to these vibrations which tend to slow down some of its processes. Inevitably you relax. That’s all there is to it.
