For thousands of years, vibration has been used to help people heal, and to keep them healthy. There are many types of vibrational therapy (VT). Though once considered to be “quack medicine” in the West, some types are now part of mainstream medical treatment. For example, many RNs are being trained to use aromatherapy and acupressure with their patients.
The energy centers and pathways throughout our body were described in ancient Indian texts. Keeping this energy flowing and in balance is the basis of many therapeutic techniques such as acupuncture and vibrational healing.
"If parts of the body become imbalanced, they may be healed through projecting the proper and correct frequencies back into the body," (from The Power of Harmonics).
VT works because every organ in our body has a natural rate of vibration. When the natural vibratory rate (frequency) of an organ is disturbed, illness may result. VT can save the day by restoring an organ’s native frequency.
Types of Vibrational Therapy
Tai ChiTai chi is a series of choreographed movements that promote the balance of our body’s energy. It was developed by the Chinese and has been used there for centuries to prevent and treat illness. Tai chi also increases a person’s flexibility and strength.
Aromatherapy (essential oils)
Aroma producing oils from a plant’s roots, rind, stalk, bark, leaves, or the flower stimulate nerve endings in our nose. The nose, in turn, sends healing vibes to the emotion and memory areas of our brain, relieving stress and enhancing mood. Aromatherapy also helps treat physical problems such as insomnia, high blood pressure, or infection.
Every flower is thought to resonate, or vibrate, with a particular human emotion or feeling. Lavender, for example, is related to tranquility. By imprinting water with a flower’s energy pattern, the water can be used to bring wayward human energies into balance.
Almost everyone has been emotionally “moved” by music. Whether through recorded melodies, playing instruments, or the human voice, the sounds of music have a therapeutic effect on people and animals. Drumming and tuning fork frequencies are “music” therapy also, but more difficult to hum in the shower. Some believe swimming with dolphins qualifies as sound therapy because the vibrations from dolphin sonar appear to have a positive effect on people.
Hands On Therapies
Therapeutic touch and Reiki are two widely used hands-on vibrational therapies. All people can emit high frequency energy through their hands, although in many, this energy flow is blocked. Studies have shown that successful practitioners’ hands release a strong, high vibratory rate of healing energy. This “handy” frequency can move and balance energy flow in the body.
Gems and Colors
Gem stones vibrate in step with specific human frequencies so they can refresh our body’s vibrations. The energetic buzz of different colors are used to help people relax, energize, feel more hopeful, reduce jealousy, and more. For example, the color violet has a calming effect on people, while yellow helps us think clearly.
Vibrational therapy is a wonderful way to give yourself an ounce of prevention from disease. All methods are a relaxing or energizing experience and can be part of your everyday routine. With ten minutes of Tai chi after rising, a dab of flower essence behind your ear, wearing a violet sweater, listening to Mozart on the way to work, and turning on an essential oil diffuser at the office, how could you not become more balanced?
