Shoulder Treatment

Shin Tai Shiatsu is a specialized form of Shiatsu, A Japanese bodywork therapy that combines elements of traditional Chinese medicine, acupressure and massage. Shin Tai expands upon traditional Shiatsu techniques to include a broader range or therapeutic approaches.

Vibroacoustic Therapy

Vibroacoustic therapy (VAT) leverages the therapeutic power of sound vibrations to promote physical and mental well-being. This therapy involves the use of low-frequency sound waves transmitted through a specially designed bed, chair or mat that delivers vibrations directly to the body. Listed below is how VAT works and its benefits from both holistic and scientific perspectives, also contraindications.

Holistic Perspective 

Energy Balance: Vibroacoustic therapy aligns with holistic principles by balancing the body's energy fields. It promotes the smooth flow of life energy (ki or prana), for overall health and vitality. 

Chakra Alignment: Specific frequencies can target different chakras, or energy centers, in the body. This can help clear blockages, balance the chakras, and enhance spiritual well-being. 

Emotional Release: The gentle vibrations help release stored emotions and trauma, fostering a sense of peace and emotional clarity. It encourages a state of deep relaxation, facilitating the body's natural healing processes. 

Scientific Perspective

Resonance and Entrainment: Each part of the body has its frequency. VAT works by applying sound waves that resonate with these frequencies, promoting harmony and healing. Entrainment is the process where the body synchronizes with the external vibrations, leading to improved physiological function. 

Brainwave Modulation: VAT influences brainwave patterns, promoting states of relaxation, focus, and deep meditation. For instance, it can help shift brainwaves from a beta state (alert and active) to an alpha or theta state (relaxed and meditative), reducing stress and anxiety. 

Stress Reductions and Relaxation: VAT activates the parasympathetic nervous system, responsible for the body's rest-and-digest functions. This reduces cortisol levels (stress hormone) and induces a state of deep relaxation, aiding in recovery and overall well-being. 

Pain Management: The vibrations can stimulate the productions of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers. They also interfere with pain signals traveling to the brain, reducing the perception of pain and promoting comfort. 

Cellular Health: Low-frequency sound waves can improve cellular function by enhancing circulation, promoting cellular repair and regeneration, and reducing inflammation. 

Benefits of Vibroacoustic Therapy

Physical Health: 

Pain Releif: Effective for chronic pain Conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and back pain.

Improved Circulation: Enhances blood flow, aiding in the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to cells and tissues.

Muscle Relaxation: Relieves muscle tension and stiffness, improving flexibility and mobility. 

 Reduced Inflammation: Promotes anti-inflammatory effects, supporting healing and recovery. 

Mental Health:

Reduced Anxiety and Stress:

Lowers stress hormone levels and promotes a sense of calm. 

Enhanced Mood: Increases the release of serotonin and other mood-enhaning chemicals. 

Better Sleep: Improves sleep quality by promoting relaxation and reducing insomnia. 

Emotional and Spiritual Well-Being: 

Emotional Release: Helps in the release of suppressed emotions and trauma. 

Spiritual Connection: Facilitates a deeper connection to oneself and a sense of inner peace. 

Increased Mindfulness:

Encourages a state of present-moment awareness and meditation. 

Contraindications for Vibroacoustic Therapy:

Severe Cardiovascular Conditions (pacemakers, Arrhythmias)

VAT uses sound waves and vibrations that may interfere with the functioning of pacemakers or exacerbate arrhythmias. The vibrations could potentially trigger abnormal heart rhythms or interfere with the device's normal operations. 

Epilepsy or Other Seizure Disorders: 

The sensory input from the sound and vibrations could potentially act as a trigger for seizures in individuals with epilepsy. The unpredictability of seizure thresholds makes this therapy risky for these individuals. 

Severe Osteoporosis:

Osteoporosis weakens bones, making them more susceptible to fractures. The Vibrations from the therapy might cause discomfort or even lead to fractures in severe cases.

Blood Clots or Thrombosis:

VAT could potentially dislodge blood clots, leading to serious complications such as stroke or pulmonary embolism. The mechanical vibrations might mobilize clots from their original locations. 


The effects of VAT on pregnant women and their developing fetuses are not well-studied. To avoid any potential risks it is generally recommended to avoid this therapy during pregnancy. 

Severe Anxiety or Panic Disorders:

The sensory stimulation from the vibrations and sound could potentially exacerbate symptoms of anxiety or panic disorders. Individuals with these conditions may find the experience overwhelming, which could trigger anxiety attacks. 

Recent Surgeries (Within the last 6 months)

After surgery, the body need time to heal. The vibrations and pressure changes induced by VAT could interfere with the healing process, potentially causing discomfort, pain or even damage to the surgical site. 

Severe Skin Conditions or Sensitivity:

VAT involves direct contact iwth the sound bed, which might irritate sensitive or compromised skin. Individuals with severe skin conditions could experience discomfort, worsening of symptoms, or even infections due to increased friction and pressure.
