What is VibroAcoustic Therapy (VAT)?

VAT is a non-invasive, energy-based alternative approach to wellness. It has been used for over 40 years and works by harnessing the healing power of sound converted into vibration. While energetically it works much like acupuncture, sound can penetrate much deeper into the body and is more effective than needles. Our bodies are composed mainly of water, so these sound vibrations set the water into motion at a deep cellular level, reverberating throughout the entire body. The molecules begin reacting and communicating with each other, leading to a sense of deep relaxation and a more balanced and healthier state of being.

VibroAcoustic Therapy at Prism


VAT is non-invasive and there have been no reported side effects in over forty years of use in hospitals, clinics, businesses, and homes. Therefore, you can feel comfortable utilizing VAT at Prism Saunas and Sound. However, if you have a serious medical condition, you should contact your physician and also consult with our vibroacoustic practitioner before use. Vibroacoustic therapy can also be used in conjunction with other therapies.

As you lay on our ergonomically designed Vibroacoustic sound lounger, the frequencies you feel synchronize with what you hear through the headphones to create an immersive three-dimensional audio experience. You will listen to music tracks encoded with Vibroacoustic frequencies that will optimize your potential through meditation and vibration.



Vibroacoustic practitioners do not diagnose medical conditions, nor do they cure diseases or conditions. You should always consult with your physician before starting any treatment program.

As is the case with all therapies, there is no way to guarantee results. What we can say is that VAT, like most therapies, is most effective when done with consistency. Repetition is required to receive desired results.

VAT practitioners do not treat people with very low blood pressure, thrombus, PTSD, or individuals who have a history of psychosis. And, while there has been no indication that vibroacoustic therapy could in any way cause problems, we prefer to err on the side of safety by not administering VAT to pregnant women.
