Body Sound Chair
Body Sound™ technology consists of an amplifier and transducers built into a comfortable reclining chair. Layered music induces synchronized sounds, vibrations, and electromagnetic fields designed to produce profound relaxation and stress reduction.
The impact of stress often gets little respect, but stress triggers a cascade of changes in our body that ages us, causes fatigue, and impedes cellular repair.
Our body’s autonomic nervous system has two parts – what is called the sympathetic mode, and the parasympathetic mode. When we are in the sympathetic mode, we are revved up and ready for action. This is also called the fight or flight mode. The body is excreting adrenaline to speed up our reaction times, the heart is pumping blood to our muscles … we are poised to fend off the lion or grizzly bear coming at us. When we switch gears and go into the parasympathetic mode, we are in a relaxed state. Our heart rate is lower, urinary output is increased, and muscles are relaxed. This is the mode we want to be in to repair cells, digest food, and facilitate the body’s ability to deliver nutrients and carry waste away from cells.
In today’s society, we too often go through entire days in a state of stress – we are in the sympathetic mode. That’s useful when we are driving the freeway, for example, but not so useful for the many other hours of the day and night. Consciously switching from the sympathetic to the parasympathetic is a skill that can be learned with the help of the Body Sound Chair.
