At Time Wellness Centers, we offer innovative methods for treating symptoms of mental health disorders, such as our biosound therapy bed in Chattanooga, TN.
Biosound therapy uses binaural audio and other relaxing sounds to stimulate brain waves associated with calmness, relaxation, and focus. Oftentimes, a person with a mental health disorder like depression or anxiety feels on edge or “scatterbrained.” Indeed, feelings of unease and restlessness are common symptoms of these disorders.
So, clients can feel relief from these symptoms by stimulating brain waves associated with feelings of calm and focus with binaural audio.
During biosound therapy, a client listens to binaural audio. “Binaural” means that each ear hears a different frequency. The brain then perceives the difference between the two beats. This helps a person feel relaxed and focused.
In a paper published in Frontiers in Psychiatry, an example of binaural audio (or “binaural beats”) is as follows:
Binaural beats are generated when the sine waves within a close range are presented to each ear separately. For example, when the 400 Hz tone is presented to the left ear and the 440 Hz tone to the right, a beat of 40 Hz is perceived, which appears subjectively to be located “inside” the head.
Furthermore, the paper makes the following conclusions regarding binaural audio and its effects on the mind:
The effects could vary based on the frequencies of the audio as well as the duration of each session. These effects can also depend on the length of treatment (for example, 20 minutes per day for one month). Overall, however, the paper shows that many studies found positive results.
In addition, clients can receive biosound therapy in several ways. Our biosound therapy in Chattanooga, TN, uses a biosound therapy bed.
A biosound therapy bed delivers the binaural audio or other healing sounds as well as a vibration to the client on an S-shaped bed. The bed further helps the client relax throughout the session. Thus, the biosound bed harnesses the body’s sensory system, promoting relaxation and reducing both physical and mental distress.
A biosound therapy bed is often supplemented with additional visual stimulation to boost relaxation. So, during sessions, clients lay down on a comfortable bed, listen to binaural audio or other healing sounds, and watch relaxing visuals on a screen above them.
Sessions on the biotherapy bed can vary in time. Generally, sessions will last about 20-30 minutes and will occur once per day throughout treatment. Clients in a residential program might use the bed once per day during a 30-90 day treatment stay. However, biosound therapy can also be part of an outpatient treatment program.
Following each biosound therapy session, clients can resume their normal daily activities. They could also follow up with a therapist or attend a group session. Essentially, biosound therapy will “hack” the body’s natural sensory system to improve a client’s overall mood and focus.
In other words, following biosound therapy, clients could be more receptive to other treatment methods. For example, when clients struggle to manage their anxiety, they might not be able to focus throughout a therapy session. Distressing thoughts and worries scatter their focus, and, as a result, they are unable to truly engage in therapy.
However, after a biosound therapy session, clients often feel better able to handle the hard work of therapy now that they feel calm and their minds are quieted.
Biosound therapy treats symptoms common among many mental health disorders. These symptoms can include the following:
Many of these symptoms are common among clients with disorders such as:
Our biosound therapy in Chattanooga, TN, could also help with mental health disorders not listed above. Moreover, anyone struggling to feel calm, relaxed, and focused can benefit regardless of their diagnosis.
Biosound therapy offers several benefits for those in mental health treatment. First and foremost, it is important to note that mental health disorders also affect a person’s physical state of being. Many people with mental health disorders struggle to feel relaxed and at ease. By helping the body relax, the mind can follow.
Additional benefits of our biosound therapy in Chattanooga, TN, include the following:
In other words, after biosound sessions, most mental health clients simply feel better and more positive. These feelings can translate to better outcomes in other treatments, like therapy, psycho-education, and holistic approaches.
Furthermore, this form of treatment is great for those who struggle to make progress in treatment. For instance, clients with treatment-resistant depression (TRD) could potentially benefit from biosound therapy.
People with mental health disorders often have unique needs that are not always satisfied with “one-size-fits-all” treatment. Therefore, it is critical to find a treatment center that offers several ways to heal. At Time Wellness Centers, we offer traditional treatment along with many types of alternative approaches, such as biosound therapy, in Chattanooga, TN.
