Tournesol Wellness: An Oasis in a Busy City
Coming in from the hectic, fast-paced New York City streets, I felt an immediate sense of calm as I stepped inside Tournesol Wellness. The peaceful music and aromatherapy instantly transported me to a more relaxed state of mind.
I was greeted by Carey Davidson, founder of Tournesol Wellness – integrative medical and healing arts practice that combines conventional and complementary medicine to help you achieve optimal health.
Having worked in the health and wellness industry for years, I was familiar with Carey’s work as Associate Director of the Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Science. We both share the same passion for empowering others to live happier, more fulfilling lives.
I was excited to try a new holistic healing treatment, Vibroacoustic Sound Therapy (VAT). VAT is a science-based treatment that uses sound and gentle vibrations to reduce stress, anxiety and depression. The National Institutes of Health (NIT) have also reported VAT’s benefits for brain function, Parkinson’s, PTSD, improving physical injuries and more.
How it works
VAT applies resonant frequencies directly to the body through a treatment table topped with a water-filled mattress. This treatment is designed to introduce healthy vibration of cells to restore balance to the body and mind.
Our cells copy vibrations we feel, and the treatment table introduces healthy frequencies to rewire your body on a cellular level.
My Vibroacoustics session
As I laid on the treatment table, Carey asked me what issues I’d like to address and adjusted the frequencies and music accordingly. Through the water mattress, I felt the soothing effect of the vibrations almost instantly.
Over the next 30 minutes, all the tension slowly left my body. The stress of the day faded – it was like the volume in my mind was turned all the way down until it became quiet (a very rare occurrence for me). I honestly can’t remember the last time I felt so at peace.
During the days that followed, I experienced the positive effects of the treatment. My body was so relaxed that even when I felt stressed at work, it didn’t affect me in the same way. If you’re looking to calm your anxious mind and bring your body back into balance, I highly recommend a session of Vibroacoustic Sound Therapy at Tournesol Wellness.
