Questions and Answers

What will happen during my consultation in Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology?

During your consultation, you will be meeting with an expert in Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology. The expert will administer specific Vedic vibrations that are traditionally held to restore order to the physiology by enlivening the inner intelligence of the body on the most fundamental level of sound.

Depending upon the health condition being addressed, you may lie down, sit or stand. For most concerns, you will not be required to do anything except relax. Many people have commented on how enjoyable, relaxing and pleasant the experience is.

The expert whispers within himself or herself some specific sounds traditionally chosen for the indicated health concerns and then administers them by blowing on and/or touching the affected area of the body. In some cases, you may be asked to remove an article of clothing or partially disrobe to expose the affected area to the vibration.

Through this procedure, the influence of the sound or vibration permeates the body and enlivens its inner intelligence and self-repair mechanism bringing about balance to the indicated areas of need. The emphasis of this program is enlivening the body's inner intelligence to enable the body to heal itself.

Will I need to discuss my health concerns during the consultation?

No. All the information about your health concerns needed for your consultation is provided before the consultation in your application form. Your application will be reviewed by an international panel of experts in Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology who will develop your individualized consultation programme. The Vedic Vibration expert that you will meet with will administer the consultation according to this individualized programme. The consultation session itself will proceed primarily in quietness.

Many participants have expressed appreciation for the simplicity and profundity of the sessions of Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology. They were pleased that discussion of their health concerns was not required, nor were invasive or uncomfortable diagnostic procedures or treatments involved.

How long does a consultation take? How many days will I need to be available?

One consultation consists of three separate sessions with the expert in Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology. Generally, each session takes 30 to 90 minutes, depending upon the number of disorders being addressed. Consultation sessions may be scheduled on consecutive days or several days apart.

Do I learn anything that I need to practice at home?

This programme does not involve learning a technique, listening to audiotapes, or any other practice. In some cases, Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology works instantaneously to enliven the inner intelligence of the physiology in areas where disorder may be present. That is why this technology is sometimes also referred to as the Instant Relief programme.

Who are the experts of Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology?

The experts of Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology are specially trained under the guidance of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in the application of specific Vedic sounds for specific disorders.

Will I also be meeting with a medical doctor?

It is not necessary for you to meet with a medical doctor as part of Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology. A medical doctor may, however, be evaluating the programme in your location for the purpose of determining the effectiveness of this non-medical approach to improving the health of individuals with chronic disorders.

Is the relief that a person gains permanent? Or would someone typically come back every so often for additional sessions?

Most commonly, we observe that the degree of relief a person gains from the consultation remains fairly stable over time if they maintain a healthy routine. However, depending upon the duration and severity of the condition, more than one consultation may be necessary to bring the desired degree of relief. Conditions often continue to improve even after the consultation is over.

Is there anything I can do to gain the greatest benefit from my consultation?

This is a very practical and important question. First of all, be prepared to get extra rest: both immediately after your session in Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology, and by going to bed early in the weeks following your consultation.

Another practical suggestion is that, for several days or weeks after your consultation, you avoid activities that could put undue strain on the area of the physiology addressed in your consultation. Along with plenty of rest, a wholesome and balanced diet and a good daily routine, this extra care will give your body the time to gradually stabilize the improvement, and bring maximum benefit from your consultation.

What are the steps for scheduling a consultation?

The first thing to do is fill out an application. Your completed application will be reviewed as the basis for designing a personalized consultation programme. Then your name will be sent to a coordinator of Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology in your area. When appointments become available with the experts, the coordinator will call you to schedule your consultation.

How much does this program cost?

The fee for Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology is determined by several factors. Therefore, please contact us through the web form to find out about the fee applying to your situation.

Will my health insurance cover this?

Since this programme is very new, we are not aware of any health insurance coverage available at this time. Your participation in Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology may help to interest insurance companies in offering coverage for this programme, and to consider the savings available through restoring health and normal functioning in individuals who have been suffering from chronic disorders.

Does the programme address influences such as stress, diet, and environmental factors that may have led to the development of the disorder, or may contribute to its recurrence?

We recommend that all participants take advantage of additional programmes for maintaining and maximizing good health available through the comprehensive methods of Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health. This approach includes the Transcendental Meditation technique; knowledge of Vedic architecture for the design of health-promoting homes and cities; and Maharishi Vedic Astrology and Maharishi Yagya programmes for restoring life-supporting influence from the planets and constellations, which are the cosmic counterparts to our physiology and are continually influencing all aspects of our health.

Participants may also wish to follow up their session in Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology by consulting with a Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health professional trained to give individualized recommendations concerning diet, food supplements, exercise, and daily and seasonal routines that can help prevent disease, promote health, and enhance longevity.
