What is it? An all-sense encompassing relaxation / therapeutic mind trip. You’re hooked up on this 23rd century space table with LED lights that morph and pulse through your closed eyelids while powerful vibration resonates your entire body. It’s the opposite of a sensory deprivation. You’re in this chamber of light and sound and sensation that totally transports you. It’s like going through a wormhole into the 12th dimension, like the love child of a planetarium and an out of body experience and an acid trip and a laser show and an alien abduction, but all in your head. No chemicals required. And as you’re bombarded with all these sensory inputs, your brain works to make coherence of it all and creates some amazing scenes out of the stimuli. I melded with blades of grass and quantum computing chips and that scene at the end of Last Temptation of Christ when Willem Dafoe says “It is Accomplished” and the cacophony kicks in. It’s hard to convey but 1000% worth it.

Vibroacoustic therapy uses sound to produce mechanical vibrations that resonate through the body, causing physiological and psychological effects. The full spectrum of sound is both heard and felt, which calms the nervous system and promotes deep relaxation. The Sensorium allows you to experience the most profound effects of music on your body and mind.
