Sound, Science, and Your Health
Across various cultures and societies, a myriad of therapeutic treatments suggests taking prescribed pills or opting for surgery when symptoms of illness manifest. However, an intriguing alternative approach exists, often called “sound surgery,” that employs the natural and holistic energy of sound and music. Rather than understanding your symptoms or discerning the reason behind them, this method capitalizes on the profound ability of sound to penetrate every nook and cranny of our bodies.
This transformative methodology invites us to resonate with vibration, aligning our thoughts, emotions, attitudes, and overall health. When channeled properly, sounds effortlessly find their way to where they are needed the most within your body. This navigation leads to the promotion of cellular growth and the harnessing of their ultimate potential. As a result, our cells undergo a powerful transformation, improving their function in ways that significantly benefit our health.
Scientific studies have verified that specific music and individual sounds trigger distinct physiological responses in our bodies. Other common practices such as meditation, physical exercises, and the use of affirmations do play a significant role in balancing our emotional, physical, and mental state. However, the use of sound is seen as one of the most effective and powerful means to attain this balance.
In basic terms, every object on our planet has a measurable resonant vibrational frequency. The understanding of this concept has been significantly improved thanks to the groundbreaking work of Bruce Tainio. During the early 1990s, Tainio built the first-ever frequency monitor capable of determining the exact vibration at which the human body predominantly oscillates. His fascinating discoveries revealed that this frequency usually lies between 67-72 Hertz. Any drop in this frequency resulted in a weakened immune system and subsequent illnesses.
Tainio went a step further to reveal that the solution to regaining a strong and healthy state was simply to expose the body to the proper frequency vibrations. His studies led to the identification of fascinating frequencies in our bodies corresponding to various physical states and conditions:
- Cancer susceptibility starts at 42 MHz
- Candida overgrowth begins at 55 MHz
- The onset of colds and flu occur at 57 – 60 MHz
- Death starts at 25 MHz
- Genius brain frequency: 80-82 MHz
- Heart: 67-70 MHz
- Human body from the neck down: 60-68 MHz
- Human body from the neck up: 72-78 MHz
- Liver: 55-60 MHz
- Lungs: 58-65 MHz
- The inception of many other diseases occurs at 58 MHz
- Normal brain Frequency: 72-90 MHz
- Pancreas: 60-80 MHz
- Thymus gland: 65-68 MHz
- Thyroid and parathyroid glands: 62-68 MHz
To provide context, the Hertz (symbol: Hz) is the standard unit of frequency in the International System of Units (SI). It represents one cycle per second and is named after Heinrich Rudolf Hertz, who provided the first conclusive proof of electromagnetic waves. One megahertz (MHz) is equivalent to one million hertz (1,000,000 Hz). Thus, 1Hz equals 0.000001MHz, and 1MHz equals 1000000Hz.
Sound, as we perceive it, holds even more depth and complexity as evidenced by studies on Cymatics. This area of study explores visible sound frequency and its impact on human beings and other forms of life. Findings from Cymatics show that our world is teeming with holographic “bubbles of acoustic sound energy,” traveling at a rapid 700 miles per hour into the ether. These “bubbles” of sound could originate from our voices, musical instruments, or the sirens of passing emergency vehicles.
Each bubble leaves a temporary yet powerful vibrational imprint on our cells. We absorb these sounds, which can either be harmonious or harmful to our human form. This concept resonates well with the ability of dolphins and whales to communicate across oceans using sound, or the potential of sound to form matter, as demonstrated by research conducted with CymaScopes, the work of Dr. Hans Jenny, and many other contributors.
The field of Cymatics confirms that what we regard as solid objects, including our bodies, are indeed vibrating continually at their individual rates. It compellingly bridges the disciplines of sound, geometry, light, physics, and mathematics, through stunning images created by frequencies present in our bodies, nature, and beyond. A compelling representation of visible sound frequencies in music is demonstrated in Figure 1.

Ernst Chladni, an 18th-century German physicist, is renowned for his pioneering studies in the physics of sound. He created simple geometric shapes by bowing a metal plate covered with sand. This groundbreaking work laid the foundation for the future development of Cymatics. Over a century later, Dr. Hans Jenny experimented with vibrating frequencies using various liquids and solids to delve further into the physics of sound.
One simple but effective experiment to visualize cymatics involved sprinkling sand on a metal plate and vibrating the plate, such as by drawing a violin bow along the edge. This action caused the sand to form standing wave patterns like simple concentric circles. The higher the frequency, the more complex the shapes produced, with some patterns resembling traditional mandala designs. These patterns were created using pure tones (simple sine wave vibrations) within the audible range. Dr. Hans Jenny coined the term ‘Cymatics,’ derived from the Greek word ‘Kyma,’ meaning ‘wave.’ Figure 2 exhibits the experiment’s images with different sound frequencies playing.

The manifestation of tones as patterns in water or on vibrating plates with sand or another substance reveals what are known as zero points or nodes. These are areas where vibration does not occur, and it’s where the material forms the pattern we can observe. The realization that a tone does not cause vibration across the entire surface but instead forms distinct and beautiful geometric shapes is awe-inspiring. Each pattern is unique, much like snowflakes. Figure 3 illustrates cymatic images from cymascope.com, with each piano note forming a unique geometric shape.

Holistic practitioners today use the term ‘toning’ to describe the use of sound waves transmitted through the human body to bring alignment, balance, and synchronicity to the natural frequencies of cells and their healthy state of vibrational resonance. At Quantum Healist, we may not utilize or teach ‘toning’ methods for teens in our program, but we do employ simple sound frequencies through the use of other resources. These resources have proven highly transformative and powerful for the emotional and mental balance of children.
Our program incorporates sound exercises designed to help teenagers develop more compassionate, loving, and effective language skills. We engage them in super fun and mindful guided language exercises designed to balance their mental and emotional states. In other words, we use sound to reduce anxiety, anger, and depression, promote relaxation, encourage self-love and self-compassion, and stimulate creativity! This approach aligns with Dr. Masaru Emoto’s work.
Dr. Masaru Emoto’s groundbreaking work demonstrated the remarkable capacity of our thoughts and emotions, as powerful electromagnetic forces, to influence matter all around us. His most renowned experiment compared two water samples. The first one (A) was infused with thoughts of love and happiness, while the other (B) was filled with negativity and hatred. Both samples were then frozen so that a slice from each could be examined under a microscope. The resulting images portrayed vastly different outcomes: the ‘love’ sample exhibited a beautiful geometric pattern, while the other showed a disorganized and seemingly random pattern. This experiment illustrates the potent impact our intentions have on matter and how they can influence our environment. Figures 4 and 5 display images from Dr. Masaru Emoto’s water experiment, demonstrating his profound findings.
