Doctoral defence about Vibroacoustic Therapy and chornic pain management

Elsa Campbell, the coordinator of the Vibrac centre, will defend her doctoral work about using vibroacoustics and added self-care to manage chronic pain and comorbid mood disorders. The project took place in Seinäjoki Central hospital with Vibrac-practitioner Jouko Hynynen, with patients suffering from chronic pain and comorbid depression and anxiety.

IAMM Pre-symposium

VIBRAC hosted a pre-symposium at the 5th International Association for Music and Medicine congress in Barcelona, Spain on June 7th, 2018. Participants heard talks about using Vibroacoustics for chronic pain management (Elsa Campbell), for neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's disease (Amy Clements-Cortes) and psychotherapeutically-oriented VAT (Esa Ala-Ruona and Marko Punkanen). The speakers also held a panel discussion at the close of the full-day seminar, talking about the future direction of research and the areas for further development.

Newly certified VIBRAC-practitioners

The first group of participants from the 1st International VIBRAC Level II practitioner training have recently graduated! Participants are pictured here with trainers Marko Punkanen and Esa Ala-Ruona (FIN), and special guest lecturer Ana Katusic (CRO). There were 18 participants from 11 different countries all over the world - the VIBRAC centre is proud to present these wonderful, creative minds and welcome them to the practice and research of Vibroacoustic Therapy and Treatment!

1st International VIBRAC Conference

This year marked a momentous time in the development of the vibroacoustic therapy practice and research. The 1st International VIBRAC Conference took place on the 14th and 15th of October 2016 in Lahti, Finland, at Wanha Walimo. Delegates from 16 different countries across the globe took part in this event, marking four years since the centre's foundation. The event was a huge success, with four wonderful keynote presentations ranging from the use of vibroacoustics within specialised healthcare to low frequency sound vibration as brain stimulation.

Upcoming Events

The first International (English language) Level II training will take place this year in Tallinn, Estonia! The training has been led only in Finnish up until this point and we are very excited to announce the development and this event.
