This technology is developed based on the recognition that external vibration can influence body function. Research demonstrates the effectiveness of vibroacoustic therapy. Implications for nurses include investigating the possibilities of vibroacoustic therapy in various nursing settings to promote patient well-being and improve the therapeutic environment.

"Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder." - Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, MD, Author of "The Healing Power of Sound: Recovery from Life-Threatening Illness using Sound, Voice, and Music"

"When we are in a state of health, we're like an extraordinary orchestra that's playing a wonderful symphony of the self. But what happens if the second violin player loses her sheet music? She begins to play out of tune, and pretty soon the entire string section sounds bad. Pretty soon, in fact, the entire orchestra is off. This is a metaphor for disease." - Jonathan Goldman, Author of "Healing Sounds: The Power of Harmonics" and Director of the Sound Healers Organization
