The History of Sound Healing
Sound has been used as a healing force for thousands of years. All ancient civilizations used sound for healing. Traditional cultures still surviving today understand the remarkable healing power that lies in sound.
In the Bible we are told that David played his harp to lift King Saul’s depression. Egyptian papyri over 2,600 years old refer to incantations as cures for infertility and rheumatic pain.
The ancient Greeks believed music had the power to heal body and soul. They used the flute and the lyre for treating illnesses such as gout and sciatica. It is reported that Alexander the Great’s sanity was restored by music played on the lyre. There is an ancient Greek saying, ‘Men have song as a physician for pain.’
Pythagoras used special songs and incantations with particular melodies and rhythms, to cure diseases of the body and mind.
A Present History – The founding of APOGEE Acu-Tone™
Sound as a 'resolution' was conceived in the innocent perceptions of a seven year old when listening and viewing, for the first time, a live orchestra 'tuning up' right before her eyes. The marvel of creating harmony, at that moment, defined her life's quest on how to 'tune up the world." Since the world is made up of people, she thought that if people were well tuned, then harmony would become real. "YES," she affirmed, that was a good place to start.
The year was 1945, she had lived through World War II, the air raid drills, the sound of aircraft overhead, the sirens and the black out drills. She remembered listening to her own heart beating when under the bed during a black out drill. Listening, feeling, observing, the tone of speech, the body tone, sounds and people, people and sounds guided her growing sensitivity and awareness. Research, research, practice, practice, development, integration, and so a truly holistic paradigm has been put forth.
Thirty eight years later the vision of this seven year old was realized as she introduced APOGEE Acu-Tone™ at the Himalayan Institute of Yoga Science, followed by a tour in 1996, supported by Edgar Cayce's Association for Research and Enlightenment. The year 2012 marks a thirty year practice of APOGEE Acu-Tone™ bringing documented benefit to hundreds that have availed themselves of the APOGEE Acu-Tone™ experience. This seven year old, now a seasoned practitioner, is the acclaimed Rose Marie Raccioppi, founder and director of APOGEE Acu-Tone™.
What is APOGEE Acu-Tone™ Sound Healing?
Sound healing is the therapeutic application of sound frequencies to the body/mind of a person with the intention of bringing them into a state of harmony and health. The dictionary defines ‘harmony’ as ‘congruity of parts to their whole or to one another’. ‘Health’ is defined as ‘the state of being bodily and mentally vigorous and free of disease’.
APOGEE Acu-Tone™ Resonance and Cell Communication
Every organ, bone, and cell in the body has its own resonant frequency. Each Chakra or nerve plexus has its associated tonal frequency. Together they make up a composite frequency like the instruments of an orchestra. When one Chakra or one organ in the body is out of tune it will affect the whole body. Through sound healing each organ is brought into harmony with the rest of the body, resulting in a feeling of ease, relaxation, and a newly felt command of self and well being.
APOGEE Acu-Tone™ Entrainment Transformation Principle
The Entrainment Transformation Principle, a physics phenomenon of resonance, first observed in the 17th century, has an effect on all of us. Entrainment is defined as the tendency for two oscillating bodies to lock into phase so that they vibrate in harmony. It is also defined as a synchronization of two or more rhythmic cycles. The principle of entrainment is universal, appearing in chemistry, pharmacology, biology, medicine, psychology, sociology, astronomy, architecture and more. The classic example shows individual pulsing heart muscle cells. When they are brought close together, they begin pulsing in synchrony.
The principle of entrainment explains how sound healing works. A harmonious sound projected at a person who is in a state of disharmony will eventually bring them into resonance with the harmonious sound. Our atoms, molecules, cells, glands and organs all have a vibrational frequency. Sounds from outside our body will stimulate sympathetic vibration in the molecules and cells of our body.
The APOGEE Acu-Tone™ experience begins with our own heartbeat and awareness of breath. Seven sounds, each vibrating to notes C to B are applied to acupuncture points, cranium points, chakras and meridians.
Chakras, Acupuncture Points, Cranium Points and Meridians, offer fields, points and pathways of passage for the sound. Each sound provided is in response to the need of the body. The body provides the information that guides both the giver and the receiver.
The Benefits of APOGEE Acu-Tone™
The benefits of APOGEE Acu-Tone™ developed by pioneering Rose Marie Raccioppi, have been documented by improved awareness of self, significant stress reduction, deep relaxation, pain relief, and a consistently verbalized and visible improvement in balance, centeredness, health, accompanied by a feeling of well being and renewal.
"…When force of circumstance upsets your balance, lose no time in recovering your self-control, and do not remain out of tune longer than you can help. Habitual recurrence to harmony will increase your mastery of it.." Marcus Aurelius
