"This therapy taps into that frequently and immediately sets the body into a parasympathetic state." explains Godfrey-Ryan. In the first few minutes of the session your body enters the parasympathetic state, which is the part of your nervous system responsible for rest and relaxation. After a few minutes, you should start to feel a sense of calm wash over your body, and in the latter part of the therapy, "the body will align with the frequencies of happiness." Apparently, the more sessions you do, the more accustomed your body will become to entering this state of relaxation and bliss (which sounds a lot like meditation to us). The goal of the therapy? To leave you clearheaded, light on your feet, and in a good mood so you can go out and tackle your day.
Elizabeth didn't feel a sense euphoria on the table, but when the therapy concluded, she sat up and definitely felt the positive effects. Her friend Lauren—who did the therapy alongside her—had a really intense experience: "During the session, it felt like I was on a sound journey that had a bunch of different chapters, and then at the end I felt like my body was floating and filled with light. When I came out of the meditation my cheeks actually hurt from smiling." According to tune studio, the effects of just one 15-minute session will last between 2 and 10 hours. Both Lauren and Elizabeth would definitely do it again and can see medical sound therapy being a practical way to manage daily stress.
Lucky for us, tune studio is opening six locations in New York City and two in Los Angeles in the near future. The best part? These sessions are available for only $15 each. When asked about the pricing Godfrey-Ryan said "I created this technology so people can leave happy and create their life from a place of happiness. I don't want just the elite to have access."
