About the Field of Sound Healing –
The study of the effect of sound on the mind, body and spirit.

The largest study of its kind, conducted by the National Institutes of Health, has shown that 36% of adults are turning to alternative medicine.  When you add other modalities, such as spiritual, energy or vibrational healing, the number increases to 62%.  These statistics are no surprise to the pioneers working within the emerging field of Sound Healing and PsychoAcoustics who draw from the correspondences found between music, sound, vibration, color, math, science, consciousness and human physiology to develop techniques and technologies that utilize sound and music to promote wellness in the human being.


Sound Healing is based on the understanding that all matter is vibrating at a specific frequency.   Likewise, science has proven that sound, or vibration, has a strong impact upon the configuration of matter itself. Cymatics, the study of wave phenomena, is a science pioneered by Swiss medical doctor and scientist, Hans Jenny.  Jenny’s experiments demonstrate how a simple sine wave vibration (pure tone), when directed towards matter (powder, pastes and liquids), moves that matter into highly defined geometric patterns that mirror patterns found in nature.  Similarly, the studies of Masaru Emoto, Japanese researcher and Doctor of Alternative Medicine, illustrate how even subtler vibrations, such as thoughts and emotions, impact the structure of substance.  Dr. Emoto placed the word “love” (written on paper) on a container of water and froze it.  Under a microscope, the frozen water revealed a beautiful, highly organized geometric pattern.  In contrast, he froze the same water using the word “hate”.  The outcome revealed frozen water that was highly disorganized, asymmetrical and chaotic in structure.


As more Americans seek alternative healing modalities that address the whole person, sound healers are putting their knowledge to work in a variety of treatments ranging from do-it-yourself techniques to the use of highly sophisticated technologies.  To begin, toning and overtone singing are do-it-yourself techniques where an individual learns to vibrate the sound of their own voice through various parts of their body to help open blocked energetic pathways, release stuck energy and decrease stress.  A cousin to acupuncture, tuning fork treatments involve the placement of vibrating tuning forks upon chakras, acupuncture and acupressure points to open blocked energy in meridian pathways of the body and restore balance in the subtle energy system.  Vibroacoustic therapy is a technique that uses low frequency sound pressure waves, blended with music, to transfer sound waves directly into the body through a table with built-in speakers. 


More technologically based treatments include the use of sophisticated equipment, such as the Neurophone, to bypass normal auditory mechanisms used by the body to provide ultrasonic neural stimulation directly to the brain.  This technique fosters a deep sense of relaxation and more importantly, has been shown to increase learning potential, mental concentration and focus.  Bio-Tuning is another sophisticated technique that utilizes the sound of an individual’s voice to create a piece of music, that when heard, entrains the individual’s brain into specific brain states such as delta, theta and alpha.  The benefits of this treatment are far reaching and include a balancing of the central nervous system, enhanced creativity and a greater sense of wellness physically, emotionally and cognitively.  Additional benefits of sound healing include: improved immune system functioning, support in achieving meditative states, pain alleviation, improved learning disabilities, help with neurological issues, increased self-awareness, the clearing of stuck emotions and the expansion of consciousness itself.

Cutting Edge Sound Technologies and Medical Devices
• Voice Analysis Technologies –
There are a number of systems on the market that use the sound of the voice and breath to provide a diagnosis on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual states of individuals, as well as the status of each organ. Various sound remedies are then prescribed.

• VibroAcoustic Sound Chairs and Tables – Healing frequencies fill your body as you relax on a special sound table equipped with low frequency transducers. The treatment which uses sinusoidal, low frequency (30 - 120 Hz) sound pressure waves, blended with music, to transfer sound waves directly into the body through a vibroacoustic table. This technique is helpful for a wide variety of issues including muscle relaxation, increased circulation and pain reduction. This therapy accesses and frees areas of the physical and emotional bodies where we can often carry tension or stress.

• Electronic Nerve Stimulation – Use of microcurrents within the body to stimulate cells within the brain, muscles, organs, and ears for optimum functionality

• Water Sound Infusion Systems - Don Estes, Patrick Flanagan, and Dr. Emoto - Various methods of using sound to change the structure of water so that cells not only easily absorbs the water, but helps facilitate the transmission of healing aspects of the water into the body.

• Sound Visualization systems – Cymatics, the study of wave phenomena, is a science pioneered by Swiss medical doctor and natural scientist, Hans Jenny (1904-1972). For 14 years he conducted experiments animating inert powders, pastes, and liquids into life-like, flowing forms, which mirrored patterns found throughout nature, art and architecture. You see a physical representation of vibration, or how sound manifests into form through the medium of various materials.

Neurophone - Bypasses normal auditory mechanisms used by the body to provide ultrasonic neural stimulation directly to the brain.  This process facilitates grounding, relaxation, increased learning potential and increased concentration and focus.

Bio-Tuning - A global tri-body healing, personal transformation, and awakening consciousness. A therapy that utilizes physical vibrations from the sound of your own voice to heal your body. A computer analysis of your recorded voice identifies the primary sound frequency that will resonate and balance brain function. Muscle testing is used to confirm that the frequency has a strengthening effect on the individual.  The recorded sound of the person’s voice is raised and lowered one octave to create a three-octave symphony of the person’s voice.  The resonant frequency is lowered mathematically, approximately three octaves, and split into binaural beat frequencies that are tuned to a specific brainwave state (delta, theta, or alpha).  The binaural beats and three-octave symphony of the person’s own voice are mixed with nature sounds and played back through a sound table or chair for about 45 minutes.  The person is entrained into the brainwave state tuned to their own resonant frequency. This technique is useful for balancing the central nervous system, enhancing creativity and promoting physical, emotional and cognitive health.

• The X-1 Healing Machine by Dr. Fred Bell uses holographic sound, which puts in concert every cell and atom in the DNA helix.

• The Cyma®1000 by Cymatherary International generates specific sound frequencies to stimulate muscles, organs and bones to their natural state of resonance.

• Virtual reality healing systems by David Gibson – Virtual Reality graphics of various internal systems such as muscular, endocrine, cardiovascular, nervous system, and chakras – that you can step into.  You can then look down and see a graphic of your heart, for example.  You then can take visuals of sounds and place them inside your body.  As you do so, a corresponding sound is moved up and down on a sound table so you feel the sound inside of your body, precisely where you are seeing it. 

•  Infratonics – Dr. Richard Lee - Tools that combine shape, color, electromagnetic frequencies, magnetics and many different materials to affect energetic shifts in environments for health and growth, by producing unpredictable signals in the infrasonic ranges of specific brain wave rhythms, Infratonic equipment relieves pain and accelerates recovery by breaking up traumatic cellular patterns that cause production of inflammatory chemicals. The two main intents of Infratonic signals are to increase cooperation between cells and to bridge between analytical consciousness and the rhythms of the heart;

•  Alternative frequency based therapeutic devices utilizing sound, light, magnetics, and microcurrent electrical stimulation. The neuroscience of acoustically resonant structures of the body, and its effect on brain wave and ultradian biorhythms.

• Scalar wave EESystem - Generates multiple bio-active life enhancing energy fields, including “scalar waves” which can allow cell regeneration, pain relief, detoxification, and increased energy levels


Other Sound Treatments

•  Sound and Music to Induce Desired States of Being - On the most basic level, music has been used for years to help support relaxation, meditation, the reduction of stress and to generally shift people into a better state of mind. Medical science has proven that a decrease in stress and tension strengthens the human immune system.  There is a large market for CD’s that use both sound and music to assist people with specific healing goals.

• Toning, Chanting and Overtone Singing  - A powerful technique used for clearing is learning to resonate your body with your own voice. Chanting and toning are techniques for vibrating different areas of the body through singing. Overtone singing connects you to the harmonic structure of sound found throughout nature and the universe.  Not only does toning, chanting and overtoning provide a deeper awareness of the way sound resonates naturally throughout the body, once you learn how, you possess an inexpensive do-it-yourself wellness technique!

• Drumming and Rhythm - Individual and group drumming have many positive effects on human beings such as increased self expression, release of tension, connection to personal power and a sense of connectedness with others.

• Sound to Improve Learning Disabilities - Sound is currently being used to help correct certain learning disabilities in children. There are numerous clinics around the world that use the research of Dr. Tomatis to stimulate the brain and nervous system. For example, The Listening Program uses his technique of rolling off low frequencies in classical music until only the high frequencies remain. Once complete, all the frequencies are rolled back in until the full audio spectrum is again heard. Research has shown that using this technique over a few weeks significantly aids in the reduction of learning disabilities.

• Sound Surgery - In medical applications, there exists a wide variety of techniques that range from simple sound massage of organs to what is termed “sound surgery” where sound is utilized inside the body to achieve very specific results, including the use of sound to break up gall stones and other diseases.

• Root Frequency Entrainment - We believe that every human being possesses a fundamental root frequency that their system vibrates at.  Once identified, we use various technologies to feed this root frequency back into your system. Consciously experiencing your root frequency throughout your entire body and psyche enables you to become more grounded and centered. When working with your own root frequency, it becomes a stable, constant grounding and centering vibration that protects you.  As the frequency strengthens and deepens within you, you will be better equipped to handle anything that has the potential to throw you off center such as conflict, charged emotion, trauma, frustration and fear.

• Tibetan/Crystal Bowl Massage - A deeply relaxing treatment which uses the soothing sounds of Tibetan and crystal bowls to massage the body and clear blocked energy patterns.

• Tuning Fork Treatments - Precisely calibrated tuning forks are applied to specific points -- chakras, acupuncture and acupressure points on the body -- to balance the meridian and chakra energy systems.  Applying vibration to specific areas is useful in freeing blocked energy and opening meridian channels in the body so that a natural state of balance can be restored.  This treatment stimulates and balances the body's physical and subtle energy fields in order to promote healing and inner harmony.

• Chakra Balancing - A therapy that combines several sound healing modalities to create a customized, crafted CD that is tuned to the specific root frequency of the individual.  This CD restores balance to the chakra energy system and creates a feeling of well being within the individual.

• HydroAcoustic Therapy - This treatment allows the individual to experience the synergistic effects of vibroacoustics in combination with the soothing effects of warm water. Low frequencies and music are transmitted into a specially designed hot tub creating a "total immersion experience" that is up to 5 times more powerful than traditional vibroacoustic techniques.
