What Is Biosound Therapy for Addiction?

Bio-Bed: A Biosound Experience

Think of how you feel when you hear your favorite song or the soothing sensation a baby has when hearing their mother’s heartbeat. There are certain vibrations and sounds that inspire feelings of safety, comfort, support, and self-control. Biosound therapy focuses on making you feel calm, relaxed, and happy, with audio frequencies that sync with physical vibrations that mimic these pleasant circumstances. Seeking treatment for addiction can be intimidating and uncomfortable. Introducing biosound into your rehabilitation program will only benefit you on your path of success and recovery. 

Biosound therapy is a type of therapy that involves sitting in a specialized chair and being covered by a blanket. This chair is responsible for sending subtle vibrations to various parts of the body using different beats and timing to simulate the feelings of comforting experiences, inducing relaxation. After you’re lying comfortable and covered, you are exposed to various vibrational patterns. Binaural audio is then added in to reinforce these feelings, mirroring the theta or even lo-alpha brain waves, that are present when a person is relaxed and focused. This creates an experience that you can feel and hear simultaneously. This sound therapy can help you to relax your nervous system and to allow you to fall into a deep state of relaxation. When that takes place, your heartbeat will slow and cortisol levels drop, reducing stress.

Biosound therapy is particularly beneficial for coping with anxiety and depression. When cortisol levels drop and the heartbeat becomes slow and rhythmic in this environment, feelings of overwhelming anxiety and tension are no longer fed. Now your body reacts accordingly, separating you from even the physical patterns of anxious behavior.  


The Body’s Reaction to Sounds and Vibrations

Sounds are known to affect the body. They are apparent in everyday life; a sharp note can scare you, or a calm buzzing can lull you to sleep. The last time you heard a song you like in your car or over a loudspeaker. You probably instantly recognized it and your feelings were altered leading you to feel happy, more energetic, or even inspired. Or when watching a scary movie, how that feeling of fear and anticipation builds before the scene enacts its thrilling and frightening moment. This function of sound triggers emotional states that can be controlled with certain kinds of therapies. Biosound therapy is the most up to date and innovative treatment to utilize these senses.

Frequency Waves and the Brain

The Biosound experience uses beats and vibrations in a way that influences the way you interpret the thoughts you think or the feelings you feel. There are 5 primary brain waves studied, that provide data to improve the results of biosound therapy. These include:

  • Gamma (30 Hz and above)
  • Beta (12Hz and above)
  • Alpha (8 to 12 Hz)
  • Theta (4 to 8 Hz)
  • Delta (0.1 to 3.5 Hz)

It’s natural for the body to react to low-frequency vibrations and respond with relaxation and a sense of calm. Alternatively, high-frequency vibrations provide you with just the opposite, inducing emotions of increased concentration or even elevated heart rates. 

Frequency Waves and Biosound Therapy

Biosound therapy creates binaural beats that are able to induce theta-level meditative states. For example, when a person is active and alert, such as throughout a busy day, your brain and body are experiencing a state of beta, or even gamma wave activity. Alpha waves are what you experience when awake yet more still and relaxed, such as repetitive tasks. Then, as you lie down to sleep at the end of the day, the relaxation and reflection experience occurs when your brain switches to a lower frequency. Typically, in this state, the mind moves into the most easily influenced state of being, known as theta. Theta waves are where the brain is most susceptible to receive positive affirmations through tones and physical, yet gentle, suggestion. Following theta, is then delta, which is achieved during deep sleep. 

Biosound therapy utilizes the natural progression of the pattern exhibited by the brain and then manipulates the process, creating patterns in the rhythm of heartbeats can help synchronize a patient’s body and nervous system. Easing you into a state of theta, biosound therapy creates a feeling of relaxation that allows the body to recover, as well as providing you with positive affirmations that will adjust unhealthy thinking patterns. Those involved in this process may be more mindful or aware of their own bodies during and after the experience. 

Benefits of Biosound Therapies for Addiction Recovery Patients

The goal of biosound therapy is to use precise and synchronized beats of low frequencies to help calm the body and mind, breaking apart old cycles of negative thoughts and self-doubt. This targeted treatment is common among those who seek relief when suffering from anxiety, depression and other repetitive illnesses that further influence addiction. During treatment, the biosound technology helps a person switch from a negative emotional state to one of calm or positivity within each session. This can help patients, particularly those participating in residential drug addiction programs, by providing the benefit of learning to manage their emotions through this technique. After even just a few sessions, you may find yourself thinking differently throughout your day to day life. As the positive affirmations of biosound treatment resonate within consciousness, you will find yourself breaking apart negative thought patterns that may have previously led to dangerous behavior or overwhelming emotions. 

When Using Biosound is Most Beneficial

Biosound therapy can also help assist patients who are going through detoxification to relax and feel less pain in some cases. Detox, being one of the most difficult and scary, and sensitive hurdles to overcome, can be eased using vibrational sound therapy. This allows patients to find a safe space away from the challenges in the past or up ahead, without interfering with the rehabilitation and recovery process. 

Participating in biosound treatment has been helpful in preventing hopelessness that leads to early discharges of patients. Also, many times calming vibrational influence aids in preventing issues when emotions are heightened during crisis interventions. 

After a biofeedback session, patients can move onto what is known as music therapy. This therapy uses vibrations and sound frequencies to promote healing, relaxing meditations, and so on. Once a patient’s mind falls into the theta state, it’s possible to introduce positive affirmations and meditations that can alter thinking and encourage healing within all areas of a person’s overall life.


Biosound Therapy to Help Treat Low Moods, Depression, and Anxiety

Biosound therapy is also ideal for training the brain to avoid a negative mindset. The process of biosound therapy is expertly designed to help change your patterns of thought and reaction, making it easier to remain more calm, relaxed, and at peace when facing uncomfortable situations. The calming effect that biosound therapy provides can be extremely beneficial to those that suffer from anxiety, depression, or overall low or high moods. Biosound also allows our patients the much needed time to relax and reflect. Having a safe and comfortable space can help anyone separate themselves from the stress of that day’s activities. By allowing this time for yourself, you will find you are developing better decision-making skills and utilizing healthy coping mechanisms when faced with previous overwhelming events. 

Biosound has been successful in relieving symptoms after treatment. Some examples that have been addressed are as follows:

  • Low moods that result from conflicts during the day
  • Depression– by changing the body’s reaction after stressful or emotional events
  • Anxiety- allowing patients to relax and separate themselves while receiving positive and constructive affirmations through meditation
  • Shakes, tremors, and withdrawal symptoms- the patient is able to take the time to focus on calming sounds and vibrations

Part of the benefit of biosound therapy is that it allows patients to become mindful of their own bodies. Relaxing meditations and positive healing affirmations replace overthinking and doubt, shifting the focus away from pain or stress.

Biosound Therapy Continued Use Benefits

As patients explore the biosound treatment experience, it is possible you may discover music and vibrational therapy not only enhances your rehabilitation and recovery progress but that it also may benefit all areas of your life. With that in mind, it is not uncommon for participants to establish their own programs and systems for biosound therapy, that can be performed within their own homes. By integrating biosound into your daily life, you are allowing yourself the time to step away from everyday stress or anxiety at your own leisure, when the time is convenient for you. This gives you more time to focus on recovery and prevent thoughts of relapse in times where physical or emotional triggers are present. Biosound music and sound waves can be used as incredible tools for calming and healing the body and mind.
