The programming of Vibroacoustic Therapy utilizes therapeutic relaxation music as the foundation. Music has been used for many centuries to promote a sense of health, wellness and wellbeing. Music has been proven to be a very powerful alternative therapy for changing thinking, feelings, ones emotional state, behavior and even an individual’s life. Music has the capacity to help a person experience deep relaxation and serenity, reduce the experience and effects of stress, promote a peaceful, restful sleep and even begin to generate physical healing.

The therapeutic relaxation music used in the Vibroacoustic Therapy has been uniquely designed and enhanced by Dr. Harry Henshaw to ensure that a person will experience a state of deep relaxation and ease. The music has two components to assist an individual in experiencing deep relaxation, in obtaining anxiety and stress relief.  The first component of the music is that it is harmonically slow, repetitious, and rhythmically random in its tempo to ensure a deep state of relaxation.

The second component of the music is that it uses binaural audio tones or binaural beats that are interwoven into the very structure of the music.  The binaural beats or tones, through a process referred to as “entrainment” or “frequency following”, gently guides or directs the mind/body to generate more of the targeted frequency of brain wave activity to create a profound state of relaxation.  The same therapeutic relaxation music recording of Dr. Henshaw is used with both the stress reduction and self-esteem programming of the Vibroacoustic Therapy.

In addition to the relaxation music, Vibroacoustic Therapy also utilizes a variety of hypnotic and neuro linguistic techniques to further assist the individual in changing his or her life. While the individual is experiencing the relaxation music he or she is given instructions to improve their deep breathing. Individuals are also instructed to utilize positive self-talk to enhance deep relaxation and also improve self-esteem and confidence. The technology of positive affirmations is used to help individuals to begin to create a positive self-image and improve self-esteem.

The experience of the relaxation music, deep breathing, positive self talk and neuro linguistic anchoring technique are all starting to be paired or linked to the relaxation response and sense of positive well being that clients immediately experience when they go onto the lounge. With repeated use of the lounge and access to the reinforcement programming on the internet during the week, the bond or link between all of the components of the program become stronger and stronger. The use of the classical conditioning techniques used in Vibroacoustic Therapy are very powerful and can change any negative behavior and help the individual to create a positive one in its place.

Vibroacustic Therapy also utilizes the NexNeuro Vibroacoustic Relaxation Lounge. The NexNeuro Relaxation Lounge is a non-medical sound and vibration system that provides audio and tactile stimulation to the mind and body. This type of device delivers “natural frequencies” in a passive and non-invasive process to the brain and central nervous system with the specific intent of balancing, optimizing and harmonizing these cells in our body and brain through entrainment. Research is proving that sound healing and frequency therapy can be an effective & safe way to help relieve symptoms of stress, anxiety and the effects of health problems such as addiction, depression, as well as many other mental and psychological disorders. The more relaxed the body and mind is the more effective a person will be at resolving and repairing problems.

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.

Vibroacoustic Therapy for Stress Relief and Self Esteem

In my personal experience as a counselor, I am constantly reminded the importance of continued self-care to avoid burnout.  It is essential that I find new ways to achieve a state of relaxation if I am to perform effectively, not only as a counselor, but in all areas of my life.  My ability to relax falls in line with my ability to give every moment the attention it deserves, especially when I am working with another individual.  The serenity lounge keeps me centered.  The vibro-acoustic technology is vitalizing to say the least.  The lounge has provided me with a set of relaxation skills that I am able to take with me and utilize at my own discretion.  I have been a satisfied customer of the lounge for 5 years and each experience has only proven to be more beneficial than the first.    Andrew    

When I use the serenity lounge, I’ve noticed that no matter what I’m going through in my life, it calms me down and brings me to a state of peace. Its almost like I’m entering into a different dimension, almost as if I were dreaming but still awake. Bottom line is that the serenity lounge is amazing. Im personally proned to anxiety, and am constantly stressing myself out over the little things in life. The serenity lounge is the one thing that can always calm the storm in my mind. I highly recommend it to anyone who has similar struggles like myself.    Catherine.

Relaxation Helps Positive Affirmations to Improve Self Esteem

One of the projects that I have initiated at my counseling office is that first indiivduals are taught how to relax. The process of learning how to be relaxed does take time. As clients become more relaxed and are able to practice the relaxation techniques that they are taught, they are more open to learning new thoughts and ideas. Once a person is able to get relaxed positive affirmations designed to improve self esteem can be used. The positive affirmations are much more effective if listened to from a relaxed state.

Relaxation Music, Positive Affirmations

Improving Self Esteem with Positive Affirmations

Positive self-esteem is very important for our general health and wellness as human beings. Having positive self-esteem is also important for promoting any type of healing, whether physical, emotional or spiritual. Poor or low self-esteem on the other hand can be quite detrimental to our well-being and even our very existence. Negative self-esteem can create anxiety, stress, loneliness, depression, problems with relationships, seriously impair academic and job performance and also can generate an increased vulnerability to drug and alcohol abuse and dependency. On the other hand, a person with positive self-esteem tends to be more motivated in taking on and creating a life that he and she loves, living it powerfully and in this process be authentically related to others in his community. Having positive self-esteem appears to be necessary for having a happy and healthy existence regardless of who we are or what profession we are taking on in life.

What is self-esteem? We commonly think that self-esteem is merely about how we feel about ourselves at any particular moment. While seemingly existing in degrees, we tend to believe that we have positive or negative self-esteem and that we make that determination simply by how we feel about ourselves. However, within a conversation of Transformational Counseling, our feelings or emotions do not exist alone or have an independent existence. We do not just simply feel. Rather, for every feeling or emotion that we have, either positive or negative, there is a corresponding thought that we have about ourselves that generates the experience of self-esteem. Whether positive or negative, self-esteem is merely how our organism experiences the thoughts that the individual has about himself or herself. If a person has positive thoughts about himself he will experience positive or good self-esteem. On the other hand, if the individual has negative thoughts about who he thinks he is then he will experience poor or negative self-esteem. Therefore, to truly understand what self-esteem is all about and more importantly to be able to alter it when necessary for ones wellness or healing, we must first get it that self-esteem is really about our thinking, and more specifically about the thoughts that we develop or create about ourselves. The thoughts or beliefs that we have about ourselves are crucial in that they determine or create the structure of our experience of self-esteem and the various emotions associated with it.

We also tend to think of our self-esteem as being something that is shaped by the events that take place in our life, particularly those from our past. We tend to believe that who we think we are and how we feel about ourselves is merely the product, effect or caused by the experiences that we have had in the past, that we are who we are by virtue of what has happened to us as human beings. More specifically, we tend to think that the cause in the matter of who we think we are and our self-esteem is due to circumstance, situation or others, people, places and things. We do not tend to think that our self-esteem is something we actually developed or created. Within the work of transformation, it is not the past, circumstance, situation or others, that determines our underlying self-image and corresponding self-esteem. We created our thoughts and with it our emotions from the meaning that we gave to the events that took place in our life, especially at an early age. As meaning making machines we give meaning to everything in our life including and most importantly to ourselves. At an early age the meaning that we give an event tends to be made out to be all about us. While events do happen it is not the events that are important but rather the meaning that we give them and especially how we made it out to be about our identity.

Given the fact that our thoughts determine our feelings or emotions and equally important that we are truly responsible for their creation, to change or transform our self-esteem, how we tend to feel about ourselves, amounts to us altering how we see or conceive of ourselves in the world in the now and this work is our responsibility alone. It is our self-image, how we define ourselves as an individual in the world in the present, that determines our experience of self-esteem and it is this that we are truly responsible for creating and equally responsible for transforming. When we alter or transform our definition of ourselves in the present we change how we feel about ourselves and with it our experience of reality and life in general. If we do not get it that we are responsible for what we think about ourselves and that we are the real author of our self-image and self-esteem we will continue to blame something or some body, remain powerless and stuck in life. The question of how to actually go about altering or improving an individual’s self-esteem is one that has been debated for many years by professionals both in the mental health and addiction arenas.

Self-esteem can be improved or transformed in several ways. One way is that which is suggested in Transformal Counseling. To improve ones self-esteem in this manner is to become present to ones self limiting belief, that which has stopped us in life and in the process create new possibilities for oneself, a new self-image from which to begin to live life into. Another way to improve an individual’s self-esteem is through the use of positive affirmations. Given that the basis of self-esteem is the thoughts that a person has about himself, an individual with poor or negative self-esteem is believing negative thoughts or ideas about who he thinks he is. The individual may think, for example, that he is “worthless” or “not good enough” and as a result will tend to experience poor or negative self-esteem. Within the work of transformation and Transformational Counseling, the thought that is at the basis or core of our self-talk is defined as a person’s Self Limiting Belief, the fundamental or core belief about who we think we are. Unless this core thought or belief that a person has about himself is changed or transformed he will continue to experience a poor or negative self-esteem and as a result of this negative thought pattern create or generate life experiences that will match and validate what they think about themselves. Given such a cognitive and emotional situation life will continue to appear as it has in the past and ones future will merely be the probable almost certain future.

Utilizing positive affirmations can be a very powerful tool for transforming what a person thinks about himself and as a result improve the individual’s self-esteem. Consistent use of positive affirmations will transform the negative beliefs about who a person thinks he is into positive ones, will begin to alter the basis and structure of his self talk or inner voice and produce a transformation from poor self-esteem to positive self-esteem. While utilized in a various ways, working with positive affirmations will be more effective when delivered through or combined with therapeutic relaxation music. What therapeutic relaxation music does to enhance the effect of positive affirmations is to create a very relaxed audio environment for the individual to become even more open or suggestive to the language of positive affirmations. When therapeutic relaxation music is combined with binaural audio tones the audio space that is created for the delivery of positive affirmations is even more relaxing and as a result very powerful. In addition to utilizing a unique type of therapeutic relaxation music, the infusion of either theta or alpha binaural tones is crucial for the success of this type of intervention. When therapeutic relaxation music and binaural audio tones are combined in this fashion the individual will experience a very deep state of relaxation and as a result be more open to the reception and eventual acceptance of the positive affirmations.

The key to the effective use of positive affirmation in this or any other type of intervention is consistency. The self-image and the negative thoughts about who a person thinks he is that generates his experience of poor or negative self-esteem is well established in the his belief system. In many cases the development of a negative self-image took years to create and has been reinforced through repetitive behavioral validation. Once a person creates and then believes that a self-limiting belief is true he will continually act as if it is true. This seemingly fundamental belief will appear to the person as true and as a result will continually be acted upon and thereby be reinforced through ones behavior. Much of that person’s behavior will be to continually validate who he thinks he is. Ones behavior will always be directed at supporting, reinforcing and validating what the person believes is true about him. While necessary for ones well-being and health, such a transformation of ones self-image from being basically a negative one to one that is fundamentally positive does not happen instantly. As with the development of an individual’s negative self-image, the development of a more adequate belief about the true nature of the individual will necessitate consistent and repetitive work by the person. Basic to this process is that the individual must fully embrace his sense of complete responsibility for the development of his self-image and also for its transformation. To do otherwise will only leave the individual feeling powerless and unable to create the life that he or she truly desires and unless there is consistency and repetition such a transformation will simply not happen.

All of the positive affirmation recordings that I have created will effectively transform the very structure of an individual’s thought or belief pattern, the basic ideas and language structure that he uses to define who he thinks he is in the world. These products were designed specially to change the self-talk that a person experiences on a daily basis by changing the ideas or beliefs that the person has about himself, the very foundation or backdrop of his inner conversation. As our identity is merely language, change the language in a person’s mind and his life transforms. By listening to this product an individual has the opportunity to practice or repeat fifty positive affirmations that will empower them to alter their life. Within a conversation of Transformational Counseling, committing an affirmation to spoken word makes it so or real especially if it is done repeatedly. Listening to positive affirmations before sleep also allows the person’s mind to begin this restructuring or reprogramming process even while the individual sleeps by taking the words and language into their dream state. By consistently listening to and practicing the positive affirmations in this product the individual will have the opportunity to begin to redefine themselves, who they think they are in the world, from one that is negative to one that is positive and enhancing for their life. With the acceptance of the words and language of the positive affirmations will come an improved self-image and with it an experience of positive self esteem.

I am currently using my positive affirmation recordings with many of the clients that I counsel at Our Solutions, an outpatient program in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. All of the clients that I have worked with who are experiencing a drug and/or alcohol dependency problem also have very low self-esteem. My clients tend to be very depressed and unmotivated in many if not most of the various domains of their life, including and especially with their recovery. When given to my clients as homework, consistent use of the positive affirmation recordings alters how they think and improves how they feel about themselves. With an improved self-image and enhanced self-esteem my clients become more motivated in their life and especially with their recovery. If a person continues to experience low self-esteem and there is no intervention to disrupt the underlying cognitive process taking on improving their life and working the 12 Step Program will be meaningless and eventually given up completely as so many other things have been in the past. It is my belief that not altering or transforming the fundamental structure of ones self-image accounts for the great percentage of individuals who begin recovery and eventually relapse. The work that is essential to successful recovery is for the individual to be able to redefine who he thinks he is, to alter his self-image, the very foundation of his experience of self-esteem and life. Who the individual believes he is will determine what he does and how he will be in and appear to others and the world.

 

Using Individualized Positive Affirmations to Improve Self Esteem

Positive self-esteem is very important if not crucial to our happiness and well being as a human being. Having positive self-esteem can make the difference in that which we take on in life, in that which we go about achieving and creating. Having positive self- esteem also allows us to have healthy and joyous relationships with others, to experience true intimacy. One could also assert that having positive self-esteem gives us access to genuine spirituality. Poor self-esteem, on the other hand, creates the space for us to experience a great deal of negativity in life including depression, anxiety, fear, stress and loneliness. Negative or poor self-esteem is also highly correlated with alcohol and drug dependency. Some even believe that a negative or poor self-image is the source of such addictions.

While it appears that the importance of positive self-esteem is somewhat understood, the unanswered question has always been about how to improve or enhance a person’s self-esteem. Some belief that a person’s self-esteem rests upon them being successful, in accomplishing that which they take on in life, of achieving goals that they have set for themselves. As a result much effort is put into assisting others in effectively and efficiently planning their doing in life. Others believe that our sense of self-esteem is determined by the type of relationships that we have, that by surrounding ourselves with positive people who will appreciate and acknowledge us that our esteem will be positively impacted. To this end training is given to help a person improve his interpersonal skills, how he communicates and relates with others. While both of these endeavors are important, it is not the having or doing that creates positive self-esteem. Ones self-esteem is not given or to be obtained from without, external to the person.

One very effective way to improve self-esteem is through the use of positive affirmations. Positive affirmations are very powerful for transforming how a person feels and thinks about himself, ultimately influencing how he views and acts within the world and towards others. The fundamental reason why positive affirmations are so effective is that their nature or structure reflects what already exists in our mind. Our identity or who we think we are, our current thinking patterns, are also a series of affirmations, composed fundamentally of mere words or language. Everything we think, all of the thoughts that we have, are merely affirmations. Positive affirmations, when used consistently, begin to alter our prevalent internal language pattern, as negative as it may be, our inner self talk or dialogue that exists within us. The end result of the consistent use of positive affirmations is the transformation of an inner negative language pattern into one that is positive in nature

The most effective way to use positive affirmations is with the individual’s own voice. While a person can have a beneficial result from listening to a commercially developed product that employs positive affirmations recorded by another, the transformative power of this technology is enhanced or strengthened by the positive messages being delivered in the person’s own voice. By using a person’s own voice to transform the inner dialogue, there is less resistance to the transformational process due to the fact that the voice itself is the same or identical. It is as though the negative voice or language pattern that one hears repeatedly in life is altered or transformed by the consistent exposure and listening to that same voice but with the structure of positive enhancing affirmations. Eventually the structure will transform from one that is negative to one that is positive in nature.

The process of using ones own voice in doing work with positive affirmations can be strengthened with the use of therapeutic relaxation music. While the use of ones own voice is very powerful for creating change in a person’s life, the use of specially designed therapeutic relaxation music assists in creating the audio space for this process to be very powerful. We tend to be more open or suggestible to positive affirmations or language when we are in a state of relaxation. When combined with binaural audio tones the relaxing affect of the therapeutic relaxation music is greatly enhanced. When used with the combined effect of the therapeutic relaxation music and binaural audio tones and consistently, the positive enhancing affirmations that are delivered will have such a profound affect upon improving and transforming a person’s internal, self-talk and eventually his self-esteem.

The technology of utilizing positive affirmations that are recorded in a person’s own voice and therapeutic relaxation music is currently being employed in the treatment of those suffering from substance dependency problems. At Our Soluations, an outpatient program in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, clients are given access to this powerful technology. Clients have the ability to create personal affirmations that empower them and support their recovery and also are able to record these affirmations. The recorded positive affirmations are then mixed with specially designed therapeutic relaxation music to create a powerful audio product to assist the individual in his recovery. Once created the client is trained in the most effective manner in which to utilize their personal CD as part of their overall recovery plan. Those clients who utilize this powerful technology tend to improve their self- esteem, stay in recovery and improve the quality of their life in general. When a person feels and thinks more positively about himself he tends to be more positive towards everything that he is taking on in his life, including and most importantly his recovery.
