Biosound therapy is a type of therapy in which the individual sits in a specialized chair, also covered by a blanket. This chair sends minor vibrations to various parts of the body using different beats and timing to help produce feelings of relaxation and ease. These vibrational patterns can have a powerful and positive effect on the brain. There are many benefits to the use of biosound therapy in addiction treatment.
Binaural audio is also used as a way to reinforce these feelings, mirroring the theta or even lo-alpha brain waves. These are the waves present when an individual feels relaxed and focused. When your nervous system is at ease, you’ll be able to fall into a deeper state of relaxation. As a result, the heartbeat will slow and cortisol levels will drop, reducing stress. This is why biosound therapy is particularly effective in helping individuals with depression and anxiety.
Biosound therapy in addiction treatment can be used to treat co-occurring disorders, as well as lessen feelings of discomfort during the recovery process. In conjunction with other evidence-based methods, biosound therapy can make a big difference in a recovering individual’s life.
How Biosound Therapy Works
Biosound therapy produces binaural beats that can create a theta-level meditative state in the patient. When your brain is in a theta-level meditative state, it’s more receptive to receiving positive affirmations through tones and gentle suggestions. Besides theta, there is also delta, which is brought on by deep sleep. On the other hand, when an individual is active and alert, a state of beta or even gamma wave activity is produced. Your brain changes frequencies throughout the day, so biosound therapy is merely making beneficial use of this fact.
Biosound therapy in addiction treatment allows you to manipulate these waves for your own benefit. This form of therapy synchronizes a patient’s body and nervous system. This is done by using the natural progression of the pattern exhibited by the brain to create patterns in the rhythm of heartbeats. As you enter a state of theta, biosound therapy encourages a state of relaxation to take over. When your body is in this state, it’s easier for it to recover and receive positive affirmations that target negative thinking patterns.
How Frequency Waves are Used in Biosound Therapy
Frequency waves are used in biosound therapy to induce different emotional states. Research from a 2018 study shows that listening to binaural beats for a suggested amount of time can positively impact a person’s behavior and sleep cycles. This study goes on to explain the five different categories of a frequency pattern:
Delta pattern: Binaural beats in the delta pattern function at a frequency of 0.5–4 Hz associated with dreamless sleep. It’s been shown that individuals who received a delta pattern frequency during sleep entered a deeper stage of sleep, according to the results of an electroencephalogram (EEG) brain scan.
Theta pattern: In a theta pattern, binaural beats are set to a frequency of 4–7 Hz. Theta patterns better meditation, creativity, and sleep in the rapid eye movement (REM) phase.
Alpha pattern: Binaural beats in the alpha pattern operate at a frequency of 7–13 Hz and may induce feelings of relaxation.
Beta pattern: Binaural beats function at a 13–30 Hz frequency in the beta pattern. This frequency helps to increase concentration and alertness. However, it is important to note that anxiety can occur at the higher end of the range.
Gamma pattern: The gamma pattern operates on a range of 30–50 Hz. This frequency can promote the maintenance of arousal while a person is awake.
Benefits of Biosound Therapy in Addiction Treatment
The goal of biosound therapy is to calm the body and mind through a precise use of frequencies. The targeted use of low frequencies can help break old trains of thinking and self-doubt. Biosound therapy in addiction treatment can especially help to relieve anxiety and depression during the addiction recovery process. Many unpleasant symptoms can be regulated through repeated biosound therapy sessions.
Recovering individuals may find themselves operating in a negative emotional and mental state. Addiction can take a lot out of someone, leaving them feeling drained and sometimes even hopeless. This negative state can be treated at a recovery center such as ours. Through the use of different evidence-based methods, you’ll find that getting better is a matter of dedication and practice. Through biosound therapy, patients can learn to better regulate their emotions.
Biosound therapy has also been effective in relieving symptoms such as:
- Low moods as a result of conflict or triggers during the day
- Shakes, tremors, and other withdrawal symptoms
In fact, it typically takes only a few sessions to reap the benefits of biosound therapy. You may notice yourself thinking differently throughout the day in a more positive manner. The positive affirmations used in biosound therapy resonate within consciousness, thus breaking toxic thought patterns that may have previously led to troublesome behaviors and emotions.
When Is Biosound Therapy Most Beneficial?
Biosound therapy can be especially useful during the detoxification process. Detox can be an overwhelming first for those entering addiction treatment. Biosound therapy can help with discomfort during detox with the use of vibrational sound therapy. Before we address the benefits during detox, let’s first go over what detox is.
Detox is the process your body undergoes as it rids itself of harmful toxins accumulated through substance use. Our medical team will help you stop using the substance while mitigating withdrawal symptoms in a supervised environment.
Biosound therapy during the detox process helps individuals feel more at ease mentally and emotionally. Withdrawal symptoms often include depression, anxiety, mental fatigue, and other physical discomfort. Through the use of different frequencies, these unpleasant emotions can be significantly lessened.
Biosound therapy also helps to prevent hopelessness and a lack of motivation that can lead to discharge. These relaxing vibrational frequencies help prevent issues that arise as a result of heightened emotions during times of stress.
What Other Therapies Can I Expect to Receive in Addiction Treatment?
Addiction treatment is made up of many different key components, which include evidence-based therapies, holistic care and other treatment services. During addiction treatment, a variety of different therapies will be used in order to best treat both the addiction and any co-occurring disorders. See below for a handful of the different therapies that our recovery center offers.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) uses different behavioral therapies to promote the discussion of thoughts and feelings. CBT focuses on changing negative thinking patterns that result in undesired feelings and habits. The link between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors is a major component of cognitive-behavioral therapy.
Our CBT therapists will help you recognize cognitive distortions that enable any toxic habits, such as using a substance or self-sabotaging. Cognitive distortions are the defective and irrational ways of thinking that may seem convincing, but are actually illogical and damaging.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is commonly used to treat mood disorders such as depression, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety-related disorders, and eating disorders. Dialectical behavior therapy is based on CBT, with greater focus on emotional and social aspects. DBT was developed to help people cope with extreme or unstable emotions and harmful behaviours. DBT will focus primarily on:
- Group therapy to build skills
- Individual therapy focusing on past traumas and current triggers
- Phone coaching utilizing treatment interventions between sessions
Family therapy uses multiple clinical therapies to rebuild the family dynamic and improve communication. All members of the family get involved and are able to openly share their thoughts and feelings. The primary goal of family therapy is creating harmony and forming stability in the recovering individual’s life.
Group therapy takes place with your fellow peers on the road to recovery. Group therapy provides a judgment-free space that encourages open-discussion and motivation during the addiction recovery journey. The goal of group therapy is for patients to share their own personal stories and learn that they are not alone in their struggle. You can support others while receiving it right back.
