Between work and family responsibilities, it’s easy for everyday stress to pile up. With the new vibrational sound therapy treatment at Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort, you can clear your mind, body and spirit to experience full relaxation.
What is Vibrational Sound Therapy?
This treatment has been used for centuries to provide a natural way of cleansing negative energy and emotions. Therapists use custom Himalayan singing bowls to create sounds and vibrations that help patients reach a restorative, peaceful state. The energies within the body and mind are transformed as the vibrations alleviate stressful thoughts.
“People often joke about ‘good vibes,'” says Derek Hofmann, senior director of spa for Four Seasons Resort Orlando. “However, when one experiences this treatment, the meaning of ‘good vibes’ is fully realized, as the advantages of vibrational sound therapy are plentiful and impact us on a cellular level. In today’s day and age, where technology and toxins abound, the healing benefits from this treatment are extremely beneficial.”
What is the Treatment Like?
Each element used in vibrational sound therapy was made by craftsmen in a region of Nepal. Using bell metal, the craftsmen hammer different designs into the bowls by hand to assist in carrying the sound vibrations through them. The mallets used to create the vibrations feature teak wood and leather.
Every 50-minute or 80-minute treatment begins and ends with the sounding of small tingsha bells made of bell metal cymbals because they produce a high-pitched tone with a soothing, rich sound that awakens the spirit. A therapist then places the bowls on tiny cushions and gently sets them on and around the body before softly striking the bowls with a variety of mallets and sticks to produce peaceful, clear, harmonic sounds. Due to the varying designs, each bowl has its own unique sound character, which creates emotional sensations and feelings for the participant.
