What is Vibrational Medicine?
Scientists have known for years that our atoms and cells vibrate with different frequencies, as do all other elements such as minerals. Practitioners who have worked with visceral manipulation realize that the organs also have their own mobility and motility. If you have studied yoga and the chakras, you may know that the subtle energy of the body flows through these channels. In fact, varied yoga teachings associate certain tones to each chakra. If you have done sound meditation, you may have noticed that different frequencies resonate in different chakras of the body creating a calming or peaceful state.
Ancient Chinese Five Element Theory also uses sound healing. The Chinese theory is that the earth and the body contain the five elements of creation. They are fire, water earth, metal and wood. In the body, each element is associated with a meridian, an organ and a specific sound. The five notes comprise the pentatonic scale which has been used in Chinese musical compositions. Music based on these notes has been used to facilitate healing of organs in the body.
In his book, Vibrational Medicine, Dr. Richard Gerber highlights the use of vibrational frequencies in healing processes. Unlike traditional medicine which is based in Newtonian concepts, vibrational healing is based on Einstein’s concepts of energy,
“The Einsteinian paradigm as applied to vibrational medicine sees human beings as networks of complex energy fields that interface with physical/cellular systems. Vibrational medicine uses specialized forms of energy to positively affect those energetic systems that may be out of balance due to disease states.”
He talks about practitioners who have used vibration to help with emotions, illness and even heal bones! Modalities used in vibrational healing include light, sound, homeopathic remedies, electromagnetic and even crystals.
When exposed to vibrational frequencies, water droplets have responded by organizing from a circular drop into different shapes and patterns. Our body is over 60% water. Most of our water is in a bound state, creating a liquid crystal arrangement which creates a physical, electrical and mechanical protective barrier for our cells and tissues. Can you imagine the effect of vibration on the organization of water in our body?
If you have ever heard and felt the sounds in your body created by a crystal bowl or gong being played, you know the profound positive effect it can have on the body and your emotions. It can help facilitate a calm and meditative state and promote relaxation.
If you haven’t, you now have the opportunity to experience these unique sound baths in a meditative state here at BDS.
On February 4th you have the opportunity to experience both a crystal bowl sound bath from 11:15-11:45am and a Deep Gong meditation from 5:00-5:30pm. Both are free and open to the public.
We welcome you to come and enjoy!
