聲音癒癒的發展

Development of sound healing in modern times


Technological sound healing devices first appeared in 1928 when German scientist Erwin Schliephake discovered that sound accelerated healing. He created an acoustic device known as the Novasonic that is still available today.


In 1938 another German scientist, Raimar Pohlman, demonstrated ultrasound's therapeutic properties in a Berlin physiotherapy clinic. By the 1950's ultrasound had become a widely used sound healing modality.


British osteopath, Peter Guy Manners, developed an audible sound healing modality during the 1950s that today is called Cymatherapy ®.


Cymatherapy International bought the rights for the technology from Manners and now manufactures the Cymatherapy machine in the USA. Their version uses advanced computers to create ultra pure tones, mostly in sets of five. It has 700 codes that address a huge range of injuries and ailments. There are many other sound healing modalities currently entering the market place, including personal therapeutic ultrasound units manufactured in the Far East, many of which find their way into people homes.

"Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder." - Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, MD, Author of "The Healing Power of Sound: Recovery from Life-Threatening Illness using Sound, Voice, and Music"

"When we are in a state of health, we're like an extraordinary orchestra that's playing a wonderful symphony of the self. But what happens if the second violin player loses her sheet music? She begins to play out of tune, and pretty soon the entire string section sounds bad. Pretty soon, in fact, the entire orchestra is off. This is a metaphor for disease." - Jonathan Goldman, Author of "Healing Sounds: The Power of Harmonics" and Director of the Sound Healers Organization
