A new kind of vibrational therapy called bone toning makes it possible to restore the natural resonant harmonics of the spine. In other words it helps to re-tune the spine.

Resonance is an amazing phenomenon that occurs throughout all of nature -- from the smallest subatomic particles to huge galaxies at the edge of the observable universe. Anything that vibrates has a natural resonant frequency that will spontaneously begin to vibrate in response to external vibrations that share the same or similar resonant frequency. This sympathetic vibration is called resonance, which literally means to re-sound, to echo.

When a middle C tuning fork is struck and begins to vibrate, a second middle C tuning fork nearby will also spontaneously begin to vibrate. Resonators, like tuning forks, have the ability to both transmit and respond to their resonant frequency vibrations. Nearby tuning forks that produce the other notes of the octave (D, E, F, G, A, B) will not vibrate because their resonant frequencies are different.


Neurobiology in Vibrational Therapy

When the human body is viewed as a dynamic and unfolding resonant system of vibrations, one can compare it to an orchestrated symphony. Every cell, every molecule, every tissue, every bone dances with a specific frequency and will produce a certain tone when stimulated. Thus, vibrational medicine works at a deep, cellular level where molecular properties are being changed by vibrations. It is not just our bodies that are affected by vibration, but also our minds, emotions, and spirits.

Perhaps one way to understand the neurobiology of the Song of the Spine, is by looking at research by physicist, Dan Winter. Winter has shown that there is a standing wave resonance between the heart and brain, and that physiological measurements are possible showing harmonically ordered smooth sine waves. Our bodies are filled with oscillating fields: heartbeats, breath cycles, brainwaves, and vertebral acoustics. The beating of the heart, the ebb and flow of cerebrospinal fluid, and the expansion and contraction of the diaphragm all produce mechanical acoustic waves that flow throughout the body.

Molecules vibrate. These vibrations are passed on to other molecules, transferring what physicists call "information". When a molecule absorbs this information in the form of an electromagnetic wave, it vibrates even more, and emits another electromagnetic wave. This means that molecules can act as both transmitter and receiver. Electromagnetic waves emitted by one molecule can be picked up by other molecules "tuned-in" to that frequency.
