Vibrational medicine, also known as energy healing, vibrational healing or energy medicine, is an alternative form of healing that works on the body’s subtle energy fields. According to Richard Gerber, MD, author of Vibrational Medicine:
Instead of conventional drug and surgical approaches, vibrational medicine attempts to treat people with pure energy…the molecular arrangement of the physical body is actually a complex network of interwoven energy fields. The energetic network, which represents the physical/cellular framework, is organized and nourished by “subtle” energetic systems which coordinate the life-force within the body. There is a hierarchy of subtle energetic systems that coordinate electrophysiologic and hormonal function as well as cellular structure within the physical body. It is primarily from these subtle levels that health and illness originate.
Practitioners of integrative, complementary and alternative medicine often incorporate elements of vibrational medicine into their practices. Vibrational medicine systems are also independent healing systems that have stood alone for thousands of years in India, China, Japan and folk or indigenous cultures.
The most familiar of these subtle energy systems are the chakras of Ayurveda and yoga and the meridians of Chinese and Japanese medicine.
Vibrational healing may include:
• Homeopathic remedies
• Energy healing
• Bach flower remedies
• Gem and crystal elixirs
• Sound healing
• Bio-Electric or Physioacoustic devices
• Psychic healing
Some Western medicine techniques that fall into vibrational medicine are:
• X-rays, CAT Scanners and MRI
• EMR scanning and electrography
How does vibrational medicine work?
Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine’s acupuncture systems have clear explanations about how their systems work. Acupuncture or herbs are used to remove subtle energy blocks. When the subtle energy is flowing freely, this life force can naturally restore physical health.
Within Western healing there are only preliminary theories about how these subtle energetic systems work to heal the body. According to Gerber, human beings are best described as multidimensional systems that include physical, etheric, astral, mental and causal dimensions.
Each of these dimensions has a specific role in the health of the physical body. According to Dr.Mikio Sankey, author of Esoteric Acupuncture, energetic cords are connected from the subtle body into the physical, and blockages in any of these systems will create ill health at the physical level. Using acupuncture, or any form of subtle energy healing, blocks are released in these higher subtle systems to restore balance and health in the physical body.
An example of vibrational medicine
The Pyradym is an FDA-approved physioacoustic healing device that’s used for pain and stress reduction as well as increased circulation. It consists of four basic functional systems: a sound-frequency generating system, a physioacoustic vibration system, a corresponding light therapy system and a crystal energy radiating system.
Physioacoustics is defined as a scientific method of applying sound frequency stimulation to the human body to obtain specific emotional or physical effects. August Worley, inventor of this device, says, “The Human Energy Field is a complex, energetic, multidimensional field that surrounds, penetrates, and IS the human body. Energetic vortexes called Chakras nourish every organ and cell in our bodies. These Chakras, in turn, collect energy from the Universal Energy Field that is all around us. When blocks accumulate in the energy field, a disruption in the flow of energy [occurs]. It is these blocks that disrupt the harmony in the field and eventually are the cause of disease, as well as emotional and mental disorders in the physical body. Applying the principles of sympathetic resonance, imparting specific tones to these Chakra regions can help to clear the blocks, thereby restructuring the Chakras and promoting healing.”
