Points, Fields, and Distances
Before we describe the Cognitive Processing centers, it is important to clarify the difference between the field related efficacy of Infratonic Therapy and the point related efficacy of acupressure and acupuncture. To address this fully, we must also discuss the concept of distance.
An acupuncture needle is inserted into a “point”, usually along an electrically conductive pathway, whether meridian or nerve, to alter the flow along the pathway. The position and angle of the needle are often critical if therapy is to be effective. This is not true with Infratonic Therapy because it works, instead, with relatively large fields of cognitive material. At the head of the transducer, the effective center is about 1 inch in diameter. And, its effectiveness is about 80% four inches in front and an inch to either side of the transducer (see drawing on page 40). Thus, precise location is impossible and unimportant. This is why “Put it where it hurts” is such an effective strategy, and why we describe general fields rather than specific points.
