The first time I fell on the floor, I was 16 years old. I was visiting a friend in the hospital and about to get on the elevator when all of the sudden it sounded like a tugboat in my ears getting louder and louder until I could not hear anything and my vision completely went, my knees buckled and I hit the floor. When I came to a nurse was standing over me asking me what I was “doing down there” and my response was… “I have no idea. What am I doing down here?” At that time the medical community wanted to diagnosis me with epilepsy; however, I refused to go the direction that they wanted me to. Over the next few years, I had the same episode happen every year with the last one being when I turned 21.
I never felt really well and decided that at such a young age, I had to do something because I did not want to be here if I had a body that was not sound and would not function well. I changed my diet, cutting out flour, gluten, white rice, dairy products, caffeine, chocolate, and alcohol. Those changes made a major difference in my health; however, I was still not 100% and had much damage to correct. In 1994 I purchased an ozone generator and began treatments which more than likely have kept me out of a wheelchair. I began experiencing extreme difficulty in 2007 and decided to see a doctor. I was told that I more than likely had MS and could start some treatments that might help. I decided, again, not to go that direction and worked on getting back to healthy eating and exercise.
Over the years I was dropping things, suffered ataxia (the loss of full control of bodily movements), a blind spot in my left eye was worsening, had extreme pain throughout my entire body and spent many nights in the restroom throwing up.
Finally, in 2009, my issues had become worse and I had to have an MRI and other tests to determine if my condition was MS. After a plethora of medical tests and showing all indicators, I was diagnosed with MS. I took the regime of pills and shots for only a few days when I realized that I would not last long if I continued to take them. I stopped taking everything and kept doing my ozone treatments and healthy eating; in spite of how much pain I was in and how sick I was, I pretended like I was fine and just got on with living.
In 2012 a friend called and asked if I would drive her to Denver for some new treatments where you got in something called the “Life Vessel™” and although she never really understood the way it worked she did understand the concept. She said that she would pay for my treatments if I would take her. Although I said that I would take her regardless, she insisted on paying for my treatments. I was not hopeful that there would be an advantageous outcome and neither was I thinking that the sessions would do any harm.
My first treatment in the Life Vessel™ I felt really peaceful and went through a major detox. I continued to do treatments for the next three years (three times a month) and finally determined in 2016 that we had to have a Life Vessel™ on the Western Slope of Colorado. I look back over my journey and how far I have come. Today I am pain-free and healthier than I have been in more years than I care to remember, and have no signs of MS.
The Ultimate Experience in Relaxation Therapy
The Life Vessel™ all-natural healthcare is a Class II medical device, with five US patents, that serves the therapeutic modalities associated with vibration, sound, infrared, frequency, and light. Additionally, it utilizes an infrared light source to facilitate an increase in both blood circulation and oxygen delivery to the cells – while the simultaneous combination of vibration, light and sound delivers the ultimate experience in relaxation therapy. Relaxation provides benefits to the body that include higher energy levels, improved sleep, stronger cognitive abilities, an enhanced immune system, and the ability to reduce stress.
An additional benefit of stress reduction is the ability to balance an individual’s autonomic nervous system (ANS). The ANS is the part of the nervous system that controls bodily functions over which we have little or no conscious control – functions such as digestion, blood pressure, heart rate and the operation of major organs and glands. A balanced ANS is essential for an individual to maintain good health and allows your body to have optimal healing abilities. Through heart rate variability (HRV) analysis, the amount of imbalance and measured success to the body’s ANS from Life Vessel™ treatments can be quantified.
Life Vessel™ treatments last for one hour and are administered in a series of four sessions, typically over a three or four day period. Since every person is different – as are their conditions – the number of sessions required is dependent on the individual and the severity of their health challenge. In general, positive results are achieved by undergoing between four to eight one-hour sessions.
What is the Life Vessel™?
The Life Vessel™ is an FDA cleared, Class II medical device that has five U.S. patents. It is a horizontal structure in which an individual reclines for a period of one hour. The Life Vessel™ employs the therapeutic modalities associated with frequency, vibration, sound, and light – in addition to infrared light – to relax and rebalance the body. The Life Vessel™ was developed in 1998 and obtained FDA clearance in October of 2007.
How does the Life Vessel™ work?
The Life Vessel™ utilizes an infrared light source, in combination with vibration, sound, and visible light to conduct a series of non-invasive treatments. The infrared light allows for an increase in both blood circulation and oxygen levels in the cells, while the simultaneous combination of vibration, sound, and light facilitates the ultimate experience in relaxation therapy. By allowing the body to reach this state, many of the benefits of relaxation can be obtained, including stress reduction, higher energy levels, improved sleep, stronger cognitive abilities, and an enhanced immune system.
How does the body “relax” in the Life Vessel™?
The body’s ability to relax is greatly enhanced by the modalities of vibration, sound, and light – combining to create a frequency that resonates with the body. This ‘resonant frequency’ provides for the relaxation tendencies of the body to be improved through lowering the body’s overall hertz level. This same theory, to a lesser degree, is experienced through various relaxation techniques such as meditation, biofeedback, and guided imagery.
What are the benefits of Relaxation Therapy?
Relaxation therapy provides benefits to the body including higher energy levels, improved sleep, stronger cognitive abilities, an enhanced immune system, and the ability to de-stress. Studies show that up to 85% of bodily dysfunction can be associated with stress and, if not effectively dealt with, can seriously compromise an individual’s health. Stress reduction techniques, including relaxation therapy, are the cutting-edge of ‘advanced wellness’ and the forefront of modern medicine.
How long is each session and how many will I need?
Life Vessel™ sessions last for a period of one hour. The typical Life Vessel™ protocol involves four sessions over a three to four day period. Since every person is different, as are their conditions, the total number of sessions required is dependent upon the individual and the severity of their health challenge.
Does the Life Vessel™ cure disease?
The Life Vessel™ does not cure disease. Through the modalities of vibration, sound, and visible light – with the assistance of infrared light – the Life Vessel™ facilitates the body’s innate ability to relax, de-stress and balance; enhancing an individual’s natural capacity to self-regulate and self-heal. The Life Vessel™ treatment is a great adjunct therapy that can be utilized with other health-related activities.
