Sound Healing Vibrations with Relaxation Music and the NexNeuro Relaxation Lounge for Stress

Sound Healing Vibrations with Relaxation Music and the NexNeuro Relaxation Lounge for Stress Relief and Stress Management!

Anxiety and stress is a major problem for individuals suffering from substance abuse and dependency.  Most if not all alcoholics and addicts live much of their life in fear.  Fear is the basic emotion that the individual is experiencing when reference is made to anxiety and the emotional and physical disorder of stress.

There are many ways to help reduce anxiety and stress. While there are inappropriate ways that people use to manage stress, there are many effective ways that individuals can utilize to reduce if not eliminate stress. For example, avoiding stressors, expressing feelings instead of holding them inside, managing time better, learning how to reframe problems and focusing on the positive aspects of life, to mention only a few.

There are many benefits of reducing and effectively managing stress. When individuals in recovery are able to learn how to reduce stress their ability to make better decisions increases. Being able to make better decisions will allow addicts and alcoholics to do work with their sponsor, benefit from counseling and as a result stay in recovery longer thereby reducing the possibilities of relapsing.

Music or sound therapy is very under utilized in the field of counseling and psychotherapy and especially for being used to help individuals to reduce anxiety and stress in clinical settings. Most therapists and counselors do not know of the beneficial effects of relaxation music in individual and group counseling sessions let alone within the structure of treatment programs.

I am currently using relaxation music at an outpatient counseling program in Fort Lauderdale called Our Solutions to help clients reduce and manage their anxiety and stress. The therapeutic relaxation music used in our program is one component of a stress reduction and management program designed to help addicts and alcoholics manage fear, anxiety and stress upon demand and as a result be able to effectively and efficiently relax. This type of stress management program is initially conducted with a client utilizing vibroacoustic therapy.

Vibroacoustic therapy is a particular type of sound therapy that incorporates music and healing vibrations with the express purpose of helping the individual relax deeply and as a result reduce his or her anxiety and stress. Vibroacoustic therapy translates and emits synchronized audio programming into kinesthetic vibrations that are directed at the entire body while therapeutic music is delivered through headphones.

The schedule of this special programming is to administer a full vibroacoustic therapy session once a week and additional programming sessions the other six days a week via the Internet at their place of residence. The initial session is conducted on a specially designed relaxation lounge. The relaxation lounge’s design allows the individual to rest comfortably while receiving the powerful sound healing vibrational treatment.

In addition to the experience of the relaxation lounge the individual is also taught effective breathing techniques, how to incorporate relaxing language or words and powerful neuro linguistic anchoring techniques. The individual is taught to link all four components of the programming to their relaxation experience so that when the individual begins to experience anxiety or stress they will be able to use one or several of the components of the stress management program to reduce if not eliminate their stress.

This stress management program utilizes classical conditioning techniques that allow the client to have freedom from the detrimental consequences of anxiety and stress. This program teaches the client how to reduce if not eliminate anxiety and stress once they are aware of it presence. As with any other behavioral technique the success of the program for the client rests with repetition of its simple but effective techniques.

The relaxation lounge is excellent for drug and alcohol treatment program, holistically oriented healing program, spas and anyone that wants to learn how to effectively and efficiently relax and reduce anxiety and stress.

Addicts and Alcoholics Can Improve Their Recovery With the Vibroacoustic Treatment Program

Our Solutions, an outpatient counseling program in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has recently added the Vibroacoustic Program to their counseling services for the treatment of recovering addicts and alcoholics. Addicts and alcoholics in Fort Lauderdale now have the opportunity to improve their ability for recovery by learning how to effectively manage anxiety and stress and also how to improve their confidence and self-esteem.

Approximately 70 to 90 % of addicts and alcoholics who go into treatment will relapse within the first year after completing a traditional program. Given the current statistics, innovative resources are needed to reduce this high rate of relapse. Our Solutions believes that the Vibroacoustic Treatment Program helps recovering addicts or alcoholics learn how to reduce anxiety and stress, improve self-esteem and as a result support their recovery efforts and reduce the possibility of relapse.

Most addicts and alcoholics experience a great deal of stress and anxiety. In addition, poor self-esteem is one of the primary issues for those suffering from and being treated for substance dependency issues. When an individual experiences stress coupled with poor self-esteem his decisions will tend to be very self-destructive. Providing a program that will reduce stress and improve self-esteem will make addicts and alcoholics better able and willing to stop self-destructive behaviors and instead be open and willing to take suggestions and as a result make healthy decisions that support their recovery and life.

While it is important to also utilize traditional counseling techniques in the treatment of addiction, Our Solutions is providing the Vibroacoustic Treatment Program as an innovative service to directly address a client’s inability to relax and also help improve their poor self-esteem. The vibroacoustic treatment program at Our Solutions utilizes the relaxation lounge and therapeutic relaxation music to help clients to relax and improve self-esteem. The therapeutic relaxation music was specifically developed by Dr. Harry Henshaw using binaural audio tones that have proven effects in helping a person experience a very deep state of relaxation. Combined with certain relaxation techniques, the stress reduction track focuses on helping the client learn how to relax the mind and body when they feel themselves starting to get overwhelmed or stressed. Combined with the therapeutic relaxation music, specially developed positive affirmations are utilized in the self esteem track to help the client begin to think and believe differently about themselves, to improve their self esteem.

The Vibroacoustic Treatment Program at Our Solutions was implemented and is being supervised by Dr. Harry Henshaw. Dr. Henshaw is a licensed psychotherapist and also the Program Director of Our Solutions. Having worked in residential and outpatient treatment programs as well as private practice for 29 years, Dr. Henshaw has extensive experience in working with others to achieve stress relief as well as to improve confidence and self-esteem.

Having used the Vibroacoustic Treatment Program with clients for over 18 months at Our Solutions, Dr. Henshaw is convinced that this program has a positive effect on an individual’s program of recovery. Dr. Henshaw believes further that all treatment centers should be using the Vibroacoustic Program in their clinical programming with addicts and alcoholics. For more information about the vibroacoustic treatment program and what it would take to implement it in your program or treatment center please contact Dr. Henshaw at 306-498-3442 or his website, Enhanced Healing.
