Now you may ask yourself just what is the technology? Vibrasound technology is a novel experience that must be experienced in order to fully appreciate its benefits and value. There are only 2 such Vibrasound devices available in the entire state of FL. Nouveau Consulting, Inc. does have and is located in Sarasota, FL at 3601 Beneva Woods Blvd.

The Vibrasound device incorporates sound, music lights to create a Sensory Resonance of the senses which can have a profound effect on the individual for relaxation and brain


What is Sensory Resonance and how can it be used?

The application of Sensory Resonance created by the VibraSound System can be used in Psychotherapy, Trauma Release Work, Corporate Relaxation Programs, Hypnotherapy, Chiropractic, Hospice Work, Sports Psychology, Musical Studies, and Meditation Work.

InnerSense "TechKnowledgy" Refines Relaxation Therapy with a Total Sensory Stimulation Device, that uses advanced electronics and frequency transducers (generators) to create a harmonious and synchronized state of "Sensory Resonance", in which the senses work in harmony. Sensory Resonance created by the VibraSound may Mental Relaxation, Emotional Release, Muscular and Physical Relaxation, Increased & Focused Energy, Enhanced Creativity, and a Feeling of Well-Being. 

The VibraSound Experience allows many to feel and see images with intense color, in a way never imagined...This enhanced awareness can then be used, if desired, by the individual for quick, and non-confrontational access to thoughts, feelings, and emotions. This gentle process can open paths to healing and understanding. It is a rest, relaxation and realization tool that complements the process of self-help.

Vibrasound technology can be used in many ways and in different settings among them:

  • Psychotherapists-Quick and non-confrontational access to thoughts, feelings, and emotions.
  • Hypnotherapy-Gently coaxes the mind into the subconscious realms.
  • Medical Doctors-Fights disease by helping to reduce stress.
  • Dentists-Lowers tension and fights fear of the unknown.
  • Businesses- Improves employee attitude, health, productivity, and creativity.
  • Meditators-Rapid access to the "Super-Conscious" levels of awareness.
  • Rehabilitators-Provides a pleasurable, safe alternative to addictive behaviors.
  • Musicians-The ultimate way to experience and evaluate music.
  • Music Therapists-Allows the user to and "become" music.
  • Students-Accelerates learning and increases memory retention.
  • Artists and Scientists- Inspires creativity
  • Fun-- Produces an extraordinary feeling of well-being, an unbelievable way to listen to music.   


Electronics and frequency transducers transform music into a total sensory stimulating experience that we call Sensory Resonance. Sensory Resonance helps "turn off" the brain's analyzing component (RAS) and allows the user to experience consciousness rather conceptualizing it. Top quality sound reproduction equipment, photic stimulators, electro-physical transducers, and liquid crystal flotation platform are interfaced, allowing the user to SEE, HEAR, and FEEL the Music through low frequency vibration.

Sound Is Starting to Be Utilized for Healing Purposes

Medical devices are being developed today that heal with the power of sound. Once such device is the Lung Flute. It was invented by acoustics engineer Sandy Hawkins. It is a clear plastic flute that generates a hum of 16 hertz when blown into it. This healing frequency helps dislodge mucus in the chest of COPD suffers and patients with pneumonia. As stated in the December edition of Popular Science "[c]linical trials in the U.S. have shown that it is at least as effective as current COPD treatments...It could also provide home relief for patients with cystic fibrosis, influenza asthma." (Binns, 2009). If blowing through a simple flute can affect beneficial changes in the lungs, just imagine what beneficial sound frequencies coursing through the entire body could do. To see this flute in action please go to this link
