What Is Biosound Therapy?

Biosound therapy is a technique that addiction specialists and therapists use to treat alcohol and substance abuse as well as a range of other mental health issues. In a biosound therapy session, the patient lies down in a specially designed chair and is covered with a blanket. They are then exposed to a range of vibrations in a sequence of particular patterns. The patterns are experienced by the patient both visually and somatically — they both see and feel these patterns. The result of exposure to these patterns is a state of deep relaxation; it slows down the central nervous system and the heart rate. This allows clinicians to better treat not only alcohol use disorder, but also the mental and physical problems that so often accompany it, like anxiety, depression, and PTSD.

The technique itself has a long and fascinating history. In Australia more than 40,000 years ago, Aboriginal people discovered that the sounds produced by specific musical instruments could be soothing to the mind and body, and so they began to use them in their rituals. As time went on, Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Tibetan Monks, the Hindu peoples, and other groups begin to embrace the technique. The basic premise — that syncing of the brain and body with rhythmic impulses — is relatively simple. The technology at our disposal in the 21st century, however, has allowed us to use biosound therapy in these new and innovative ways.

What Does the Treatment Community Think of Biosound Therapy?

Because it is such an effective method of treating alcohol and drug addiction, clinicians and therapists around the world have begun to include it in their treatment plans. In some instances, this is a stand-alone practice aimed at achieving the kind of deep state of relaxation that can help an individual heal. In others, it is used in conjunction with other types of interventions. At Deerhaven Gardens, we use biosound therapy as one of the treatment modalities accompanying the Sinclair Method. As an individual becomes more acclimated to naltrexone and their cravings for alcohol begin to decrease, our residents also participate in various forms of therapy, including biosound therapy. This combination of approaches has met with great success.

Tens of millions of Americans are battling addiction issues. Sadly, the vast majority will not get the help they need, and the of the ones who do reach out for help, a large percentage will relapse. In many cases, this is a result of the fact that their treatment is not right for them.

At Deerhaven Gardens, we know that there is no universal, one-size-fits-all approach to addiction treatment. Each individual struggling with alcohol use disorder requires an individualized, unique treatment program that must be designed based on several factors. We make a point of treating each resident individually and constructing their treatment from the ground up. One of the factors that we consider, for example, is gender, which is why we only serve clients who identify as female at Deerhaven. Although all our residents participate in the Sinclair Method, the combination of therapies and other treatment modalities associated with their recovery will differ.
