Have you ever heard of sound acupuncture or vibrational acupuncture?
Or have you been thinking you would like to experience the benefits of acupuncture but you're repulsed by the thought of being poked with needles? Vibrational acupuncture is a form of music therapy. In vibrational acupuncture tuning forks calibrated to specific frequencies are used instead of or along with needles to stimulate the acupoints. Wondering why you should give it a try? Below are a few reasons.
YOUR STRESS LEVELS ARE MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, HIGH
Worry, irritability, moodiness, and depression are all symptoms of stress overload. Several research papers have found both music therapy and acupuncture useful in stress reduction. The World Health Organization in its Consensus statement on Acupuncture listed acupuncture as an effective treatment for depression. In vibrational acupuncture acupoints are stimulated as with acupuncture, but instead of sometimes feeling the prick of a needle, you feel the soothing vibration of a tuning fork. Similar to the way a favorite song can lift your mood, the frequencies of the tuning forks provide healing vibrations to both body and mind.
YOU SUFFER FREQUENTLY FROM PANIC ATTACKS AND ANXIETY
Panic attacks tend to occur because of two problems- an overtaxed body and a stressful environment. Acupuncture treatments being cumulative in regards to benefits, can overtime strengthen the body and in so doing reduce the negative effects of excess stress. Sometimes we can’t get out of stressful environments. Have you ever turned to music to help improve your work or home environment? Music has been shown to change our neural patterns. The correct kinds of music can soothe crying babies to sleep and calm a person after a stressful day. Vibrational acupuncture combines the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine with the therapeutic effects of sound.
YOU SUFFER FROM CHRONIC PAIN
Chronic pain is at best an annoyance and at its worse debilitating. The American Pain Society and American College of Physicians recommend doctors initially select non drug therapies such as acupuncture to alleviate conditions such as chronic lower back pain. Harvard health also acknowledges in one of its articles how music therapy can be used to ease pain. If your suffer from chronic pain perhaps sound acupuncture can help provide relief.
YOU SUFFER FROM INSOMNIA
Have you ever tried calming music to promote sleep? In TCM insomnia has several causes; some of them easy to treat, others requiring the cumulative effects of a few acupuncture treatments. Insomnia in TCM occurs when our bodies are out of balance. Sometimes we can’t sleep because we are too wound up. Sometimes we can't sleep because we are tired. Vibrational acupuncture like traditional acupuncture helps restore balance to both body and mind, so good sleep is more accessible.
YOU WANT PREVENTATIVE HEALTHCARE
Preventative healthcare keeps you feeling your best. Acupuncture shines in its ability to prevent disease largely because it is excellent at alleviating the physiological effects of negative stress. Many diseases have a stress component. Can you remember a time when you used music to calm down or to energize or to relax? Vibrational acupuncture is a very relaxing treatment that combines the beauty of music with the time proven wisdom of acupuncture. Maybe now you are willing to give it try.
