Cymatic Therapy is a type of alternative
therapy sometimes used in the treatment of cancer that involves exposing parts of the body to sound waves. The presumption is that sound waves can have a profound effect on physical matter, including the human body. The sound-producing devices currently used for most forms of cymatic therapy today are computerized to produce exact frequencies at precise levels. The device has an instrument that is used to transmit the sound waves internally through the skin. The sound focuses on areas of the body exhibiting illness or imbalance. The exact frequencies used are chosen by the practitioner according to specific patient diagnosis. These waves are meant to create a synchronous rhythm than put the organs in balance that in turn boosts the immune system.
History of Cymatic Therapy
Cymatic therapy is rooted in the work of Dr. Peter Manners. In the 1960s Manners developed a device that emitted specific frequencies for medical use. His work was based on that of Hans Jenny who coined the term cymatics in the mid-twentieth century. Since that time cymatic devices have incorporated a magnetic field which oscillates in conjunction with the sound waves.
Benefits of Cymatic Therapy
Today, cymatic therapy is promoted as a treatment primarily for the heart, brain, and other organs. The sound waves are said to bring the organs into rhythm not only within the specific organ, but also in conjunction with the rhythms of the rest of the body. Cymatic therapy claims that restoring the body’s rhythms to a natural state boosts the immune system and promotes healing in general. Research has analyzed the effects of sound, frequency, and vibrations. It is suggested that frequencies of sound, can greatly influence a patient’s emotional well-being. Although there is no scientific evidence that cymatic therapy can cure cancer, it has been proven to be an effective treatment for emotional well-being. The treatment has been noted for its ability to ease physical symptoms. Those diagnosed with cancers such as mesothelioma
might be especially interested in applying cymatic therapy as a way to alleviate pain. Mesothelioma exhibits especially long latency periods
, normally being diagnosed in the later stages
. Because of this, pain can be of particular issue for mesothelioma patients. Those diagnosed with mesothelioma and other cancers might consider these types of alternative treatments in accordance with their other standard
