Sound Therapy

Vibrational Sound

Everything that moves vibrates, from the smallest molecule to the universe itself.  As long as it is vibrating, it is making some kind of sound.  We may not perceive the sound, as it may be below or above the threshold of our hearing.  The human ear can sound vibrations between 20 and 20,000 cycles per second, although we also perceive sound by skin and bone conduction, ingesting and consuming it with the whole body.

Scientific studies show that sound can produce changes in the autonomic, immune, endocrine and neuropeptide systems.  Every atom, molecule, cell, gland, and organ of the human body absorbs and emits sound.  The entire body, as well as our brain waves in a relaxed state, vibrates at a fundamental frequency of about 8 cycles per second, literally entraining and attuning us to the basic electromagnetic field of the earth itself!

Crystal Sonic™ Therapy

As an integrative oncologist, Dr. Gaynor has been implementing sound and music therapy as a part of his patients’ treatment protocol for over 25 years. What he’s found is that music and sound healing make patients feel more relaxed, and they experience a new found sense of harmony and inner peace that lasts long after completing cancer treatments.

In his book, The Healing Power of Sound, he shows how sound and music can be an important part of a comprehensive program that everyone can use to create a healthy mind, body, and spirit. As a therapeutic modality, healing sound balances the body’s systems to promote health, not disease.

An adjunct therapy to conventional cancer treatments, music is an integral part of Dr. Gaynor’s practice so much so that he has developed specially composed music using quartz crystal called Crystal Sonic™ acoustics. You can buy his CD’s at his website, Crystal Sonic™ Therapy

Brainwaves respond to specific musical frequencies and tones. The Alchemy Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls™ are specially manufactured by Crystal Tones to create rich vibratory frequencies that can be tuned to 1/100 of a Hz by adding a variety of minerals and metals to the quartz at temperatures of 3000 degrees Fahrenheit.

When the bowls are played in a binaural beat set, it will generate specific types of brainwave entrainment. Delta waves are associated with deep meditation and have a frequency of 0,5-4 Hertz (Hz) or cycles/second. Theta waves are associated with a relaxed resting state and are in the 4-7 Hz range Alpha waves are in the 8-12 Hz range and are associated with an awake peaceful state. Beta is 13-30 Hz and is associated with focus and concentration. Gamma is in the 30-40 Hz range and is associated with peak alertness.
