Sound Therapy San Antonio
What is Sound Therapy?
Sound therapy San Antonio, also known as a sound bath, sound healing, or vibro-acoustic therapy, happens when sound vibrations synchronize brain waves, allowing you to achieve deeper and more profound states of relaxation. Frequencies from binaural beats and/or electronically manipulated music are used to move the mind and body beyond the alpha state of relaxed consciousness, to the theta state (meditation) or even delta state (where internal healing can occur).
The vibrations from the sound are delivered through special speakers called transducers. They flow through the body, which is 70% water, causing blood vessels to dilate and lymphatic pathways to open. The spine and limbic system are triggered, activating the nerves connecting all muscle groups. The body is flooded with mood-enhancing chemicals. This complete cellular stimulation allows the body to begin healing.
It might sound odd, but all matter vibrates at a different (possibly imperceptible) frequency. Your body already understands and responds to these vibrations. When your brain is exposed to our specifically formulated sounds, a process called entrainment begins. Entrainment gives our fluctuating brainwaves a stable frequency to attune to, allowing us to reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep habits, and better manage pain.
Krysus uses a cutting-edge technology in San Antonio called the RestStation™ Lounge, a memory foam platform offering vibration and audio. Low frequency tones and binaural beats are synchronized with music to trigger your body’s natural relaxation response. After about 15 minutes, you will be in a deep theta meditative state. Using a special echo effect, the RestStation will then begin transmitting positive and powerful affirmations that will help address profoundly ingrained negative thoughts and behaviors.

Sound Therapy Can help in many areas
Vibroacoustic therapy was developed more than 40 years ago by an Estonian physician and has been paired with many other therapies as a drug-free, noninvasive way to alleviate pain and anxiety. For cancer sufferers, it can help mitigate neuropathy and nausea, and for those with fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, and arthritis, vibroacoustic therapy can manage, or even relieve, chronic pain.
At Krysus, we are especially committed to using sound therapy to complement traditional therapeutic approaches to PTSD, anxiety, depression and impulsive behavior. We will be offering a special 8-week program for veterans, and welcome donations from individuals to help support this crucial recovery program.

Float tanks are filled with such a high concentration of salt that the body automatically floats with no effort. Many customers achieve such a state of relaxation that they fall asleep while floating.
However, being under the influence of drugs, alcohol and/or medications with a sedative effect will increase the risk of drowning. People with uncontrolled disorders that may cause them to lose consciousness at any moment could also be at risk of drowning. See “Who should avoid float therapy?”
