The "Tactile Sound Massage Table" -
Why Use a Vibro-Acoustic Table?

Experience “tactile sound” as musical vibration and sound frequencies permeate this state of the art vibro-acoustic table that sooths the body to induce a deeper state of relaxation and thus allows for more receptivity to any healing modality.

Existing studies show that using specific tones and frequencies in this manor can assist the body to heal, stimulate creativity and enhance awareness.

These tables of "tactile sound" incorporate music into them, which permeates the table and the body. The type of music played in these tables will determine the effect that the person feels. The use of CD's specifically designed to promote relaxation and reduce stress, clear emotional blockages, to induce various states of meditation, balance chakras, activate DNA, or frequencies electronically reproduced to address specific physical disorders can all be incorporated into the personalized treatments someone receives. Beyond the benefits of hearing these sounds, experiencing them through a table allows the body to feel and integrate these frequencies. Tactile sound is like a cellular massage for the body. Massage therapists who use these tables experience less burn out, as their clients muscles are relaxed by the table, allowing therapists to not have to work as hard or to go deeper with less effort.

The primary effects of the tables are to enhance blood flow, reduce muscle tension and promote stress and anxiety reduction.

There are five ways pulsations can be perceived in the human body in the auditory frequency range. Each of theses sensory pathways has a different mechanism, but all of them reinforce the sounds that come in through our ears. The general term that has been adopted for these additional four pathways is "Tactile Sound". The range of tactile sound is from approximately 1Hz to 1200Hz. This is quite a bit higher than what subwoofers deliver, and extends into the lower registers of the human vocal frequency ranges.

Tactile sound reproduction can be utilized for many purposes. Of primary interest is the addition of tactile frequencies to the production of recorded music and movie soundtracks, which provides dramatic effects. Participants often refer to the experience as being thoroughly engaging, and describe a feeling "that encompasses a sixth sense." That sixth sense is the increased realism obtained when tactile cues are added to conventional air- transmitted sounds. In addition to standard entertainment venues, tactile sound transducers find their way into other venues. These devices are one of the only ways the profoundly deaf can experience external sounds. Tactile transducers have been used under Wenger portable stage floors (risers) at concerts for the hearing impaired, and many participants have described the results as "a miracle".

I utilize this technology in the tables I build with music and frequencies that introduce deep relaxation and vibrations to the body that are designed to help the client regain balance and health at a cellular level. Whether you incorporate an InnerSoul Tactile Sound Massage Table with regular massage, energy work, with CD's designed to activate DNA, balance the chakras, with VAT Therapy Frequencies or for meditation to de-stress after a long day, the results and healings that have occurred have been remarkable. For whatever purpose you utilize the table for, the following describes why the results are more effective then on a soundless table.

"Just got the table and I have to say I am very impressed.......great workmanship....worth every penny of the price. Got it set up and have already been on it for a while and it is great.
Thanks Again, Tim Janak, LMT, Houston, TX

"Since my purchase of a Vibroacoustic Tactile Sound Massage Table, my at home clients have doubled by word of mouth. I don't have to work as hard due the relaxing effect of the table has on the clients and many tell me that it is the best massage they have ever had. The table has paid for itself in a few months and I live in a small "spa" town that has over 100 licensed massage therapists". Gail Lago, L.M.T., Hot Springs, AR

"Aloha Stephen! We love the table and have been working with it testing different instruments, CDs, etc. Doug's been making test CDs with different Hawaiian slack key tunings for us to test.  It's a wonder-full experience!!"

"Received the table on Tues...It is awesome...Already have paying clients fighting to get on...You did a great job...thank you so much...LeAnn Harling, Golden Sun Healing Arts, Fredericksburg, TX

"The acoustic sound table serves as a massage on a cellular or energy level. The vibrations resonate and trigger our electrical/cellular/ energetic levels. It is almost as though your energetic vibrational frequency synchronizes with, or at least changes while feeling the music and its vibrations." Paul Lorenz, Teacher/ Musician, St. Catharines, Ontario

Five Pathways to Perceiving Sound

1. Hearing Via Air Transmission:

The standard way we perceive acoustic energy is through our ears. The mechanism is simple. Vibrating air molecules enter the ear canal and push against the eardrum. This energy is transmitted to the Cochlea through the inner ear bones. The Cochlea is a fluid-filled sense organ in which small hairs, Cilia, convert mechanical vibration. Sound waves push on the eardrum, which mechanically stimulates the three ear bones. These push on the oval window of the Cochlea and create the sensation of sound.

2. Feeling Via Deep Tissue Movement:

The ground vibrating almost imperceptibly beneath our observers is stimulating nerve endings in deep tissues and muscle mass. This sense is called "kinesthetic". It comes from the Greek word kinos, which means, "to move". These kinesthetic sensations are the gut feelings that occur when powerful objects excite the ground near us.

3. Feeling Via Skeletal Joint Movement:

The ground vibrating beneath our observers is also stimulating nerve endings in skeletal joints and deep tissues. This sense is called "haptic". It comes from the Greek word haptein, which means, "to touch".

4. Feeling Via Tactile Stimulation:

The ground moving beneath our friends is also stimulating nerve endings just under the outer layer of skin. This sense should be familiar to you; it is your sense of touch. Ordinarily, the sense of touch does not come into effect with acoustic events except in situations where excessively loud noises are produced. It also comes into effect for musicians who hold their instruments close to their bodies when playing.

5. Feeling Via Bone Conduction:

The Cochlea, the sense organ that takes the mechanical movements of acoustic energy and translates them into nerve impulses, is firmly encased in the skull bone. This bony protection allows a secondary pathway for sound waves to reach the Cochlea; directly through the bone mass itself. The phenomena of bone conduction is well known and has been exploited by many people. For example, in cases of structural hearing loss where the eardrum or inner ears bones are damaged beyond repair, various companies manufacture bone conducting "hearing aids." These devices clamp onto the back of the ear, or are actually implanted into the skull, to directly stimulate the Cochlea via local bone conduction.
