Abstract:
My particular interest in healing sound probably came to me already in the womb, because my mother was a pianist and my father was a doctor. It is the healing and transformative power of sound that interests me most. If sound can introduce form and pattern into matter then there is something essential about sound. I realised that this theme is common to many traditions, which consider sound the principal creative force in the universe. This suggests that human beings have always known that everything in the world has its identity because of the periodicity and the regularity of its movement and that this is what makes one thing separate from another, and gives it form.

Abstract:
The psychic Edgar Cayce predicted that sound would be the medicine of the future. Most of the different sound therapies utilize resonant harmonic frequencies. Within the last decade, the use of sound as a healing modality is coming more into focus in both the scientific and medical communities. There now exist such organisations as the International Society for Music in Medicine and the International Arts Medicine Association which draw together doctors, scientists and others working with sound as a therapeutic tool.

Abstract:
Dr. Long, who is both a Research Fellow in Complementary Medicine at Exeter University and a practicing musician and composer (and Ross King and Colin Angus before her), have come up with a way to map the intricate whorls and swirls of these "patterns of life" into a medium that is rich enough and symbolic enough, to allow people to intuitively grasp and differentiate between the complex instructions that define how living things are put together. It works like this, according to the Sept. 13 New York Times www.nytimes.com:

Abstract:
Cymatics, the study of wave phenomena, pioneered in the 1950s by the late Swiss scientist, Dr Hans Jenny. Following the work of German physicist and acoustician, Ernt F.Fchladni, who towards the end of the 18th century, created intricate sand patterns by vibrating a steel plate with a violin bow, Dr Jenny employed the modern technology of the day to carry out more precisely replicable experiments. Using a sine wave generator and a speaker to vibrate various powders, pastes and liquids, Jenny succeeded in making visible the subtle power through sound structures matter.

Abstract:
Since the early 1960's we have seen an increase in interest in and awareness of ancient cultures, especially those of eastern origin. The main areas of exploration have been through spirituality and philosophy and hand in hand with these two pillars of existence have come health and exercise systems and regimes which look at the whole of our existence and lifestyle rather than fragmented aspects of it.
