Three Classes of Treatment Effectiveness:
Class A treatment protocols might be used alone as an initial treatment protocol for a patient with excellent results expected in most cases.
Class B might be used where other modalities have been applied but have failed or where the therapy is more available or cost effective than other alternatives. A practitioner might expect a 50% chance of resolving/reducing the problem with therapy treatments and a 50% chance of needing to try another technique. Including the therapy with other therapies will increase the likelihood of success on the first try.
Class C applies to cases where reduced edema, increased immune response, or reduced trauma will accelerate recovery. As an example a fracture or muscle pull might be treated by immobilization, or pneumonia might be treated by antibiotics, but the therapy used in conjunction with these primary therapies will provide a much more satisfactory result in most cases.
The following are suggested experimental protocols for treating specific conditions. They are appropriate to try wherever a less expensive more expedient or permanent method is sought. These protocols are not to be used in life threatening situations where their use would impede the application of a generally accepted and needed intervention. The therapy is safe to use. Beyond avoiding displacement of needed medical interventions, the only contraindications are to avoid application directly over pacemakers, and blood clots in the legs. Pacemakers are sensitive electronic devices with unknown senstivities which might somehow be affected by direct stimulation. Blood clots in the calves can be broken loose by vigorous massage and travel to the heart, so even with the gentle massage action of the therapy, caution is appropriate. Sweeping over the area without touching the skin avoids the massage activity. No adverse side effects have been reported in any of the above areas, but it is good to be cautious.
While most paitents love the therapy, occasionally, patients will complain that they don’t like it or that they feel anxious. EEG studies indicate that, in many of these cases, the infrasonic alpha infused into the body evokes a response of increased theta or beta activity as conditioned responses are activated. In these cases, if treatment is continued over the heart, or with sweeping, the feeling of discomfort will gradually diminish. However, if the patient complains, the therapy may be touching into a conditioned response which the patient does not want to let go of. This creates a difficult choice. If therapy therapy is continued, the patient may discontinue therapy. If the conditioned response is not addressed, the patient may continue to have chronic problems.
Where people show increased discomfort on first using Therapeutic therapy, it is often valuable to start therapy by sweeping the unit from head to foot about twelve inches from the body, and applying it to points distal to the point of discomfort. In cases of chronic pain and pain killer usage, such as serious low back pain, peripheral neuropathy and fibromyalgia, it is valuable to limit the length of the initial treatment to under 5 minutes and do mostly sweeping. Then it can be determined whether there is increased pain in the minutes or hours after the treatment. While this increased pain (due to neural facilitation, awakening of the area) is a strong sign that positive results are expected, it can be discouraging to the patient if the therapist is not prepared.
Once it is found that the initial treatment shows no increased pain, longer treatments will not be a problem. Where there is increased pain after the treatment, the amount of increased pain will decrease rapidly in subsequent treatments, until, after usually 3 or 4 treatments, no additional pain will be experienced. Keep treatments short and gentle until there is no longer an increase in pain, then extend treatment time.
The following are suggested protocols. Please use them and give us feedback on their effectiveness, and any comments you may have on how to improve the protocol.
Anxiety, tachycardia, and panic attacks: Class A. Stressful or intimidating circumstances often evoke conditioned responses of fear, which carry muscle tension and in many cases, tension in the body’s electrical and circulatory systems. This is how uncomfortable experiences can interfere with normal heart functioning. Start by treating the heart for 10 to 20 minutes. Also treat the liver for 10 minutes where there is anger, and the sacrum for 10 minutes where there is fear. Initial use of the therapy can induce a state of anxiety by activating angers and fears in the lower body. Where this is observed, it is valuable to delay treatment of liver and sacrum , and start with treating heart, and bottoms of the feet, then sweeping from head to toe. It is also sometimes valuable to treat the heart from a distance of several inches away so the patient can let go of the anxiety gradually, moving the therapy closer to the heart as the discomfort subsides.
Adhesions and scar tissue: Class A. Apply to the local area. Expect redness, inflammation, and pain to decline within ten minutes of treatment. In many cases a perceptible softening of scar tissue is observed.
Back pain: Class A Apply to area of pain, back of knees, sacrum (and heart if uncomfortable emotions arise) and bottom of feet. Sweep from abdomen out feet. If pain is chronic, limit first treatment to five minutes consisting mostly of sweeping down the legs, to determine if there is a significant increase in pain.
Burns: Class A Sweep over the area of the burn from a distance of several inches or a few feet, and gradually move closer as the patient relaxes. Sweep from head to toe to release trauma throughout the body. With the protective padding of thick bandages, the transducer can be applied directly to the bandages.
Carpal tunnel syndrome: Class B A comfortable way to treat is to have the patient hold the therapy in the palm of his hand facing the palm for 15 minutes. Another approach is to apply to the local area and points of tension or discomfort in neck (such as GB-20 and GB-21), shoulder, elbow, and hand. Then sweep from heart to finger tips.
Chronic Fatigue: Class A Treat CV-6, an inch below the navel, a major tonifier for the entire body, for enhanced energy, and thymus for enhanced immune efficiency. Treat each for 10 minutes twice per day. The increase in energy appears to be cumulative. Also try Stomach 36 on the outside of the calf, 2-3 fingerwidths below the knee and 1-2 fingerwidths from the shin bone.
Constipation: Class A Treat lower abdomen below navel, illeocecal valve, and any areas of hardnes or discomfort. Also treat pituitary. Also try sweeping clockwise around the area where there is more discomfort or cramping. Watch for normalization of bowel movement.
Diabetic neuropathy: Class A Treat bottoms of feet to promote circulation in feet and legs. Treat mid back over spleen to release trauma, a feeling of being defeated. Also treat pituitary. Reports indicate that pain and numbness in the legs and feet respond within 3 days, and we are advised that insulin level should be monitored.
Dying with peace: Class A Apply to heart and to areas of pain. Watch for increased mental clarity, reduced pain, and increased optimism. Also apply to bottoms of feet and pituitary, and sweep body from head to foot.
Ear infection, ear pain: Class B Apply behind the ear (triple warmer 17) for 2 to 5 minutes, then treat the neck just below ear (sub-maxillary glands), also treat Lung-1 on the chest next to the shoulder, and add a few minutes over the thymus for immune enhancement.
Edema, fluid retention: Class A Apply to bottoms of feet and areas of pain. Sweep down from heart to the feet. Also treat pituitary. Local lymph edema: apply to area of swelling, particularly to the part of the swelling closest to the heart where a constriction of lymph glands is likely to be present.
Emphysema: Class C Apply therapy to CV-17 on the chest, and wherever there is discomfort, particularly on the back over the lungs. Start with short treatments because envigoration of the lungs can induce coughing.
Fibromyalgia: Class A Apply to local areas of pain, sacrum, heart, and pituitary. Be sure to sweep from head to toe and out arms. Prepare for increased pain when first applying the therapy, as it brings the areas of rigidity back to consciousness. It is best to start by sweeping the area at a distance of several inches and asking the patient what he is experiencing. Patient may experience increased pain after the first treatment and lesser increased pain after the second treatment. Warn the patient of this possibility and go easy on the first treatment.
Fracture: Classes A and C: Apply the therapy directly over the fracture. It works fine through a plaster cast or several inches away. Sweep accross the injury from heart to hands or from head to toe. Expect the treatment to relieve the pain for several hours, and to remove the trauma so that healing can proceed rapidly.
Gallstones, kidneystones: Class B Apply directly over the pain. Relaxation induced in the gall duct can allow it to relax and pass a stone. It also envigorates circulation within the organ. Also helps symptoms of gallbladder stress such as nausea after meals or relief of nausea after eating.
Headache: Class B. Apply to area of pain. If pain is frontal, parietal, or occipetal, sweep from the forehead along bladder meridian, down the back, back of the legs, and out the little toe. If pain is temporal, sweep along gall bladder meridian, down the back sides of the neck, out to the shoulder and down the sides of the body, the outsides of the legs, and out the front of the feet. Also treat bottoms of the feet to be sure the pathway from the abdomen downward is clear.
Insomnia: Class A Applying to the heart for 10 minutes before bed usually provides for quick dropping off to sleep and sound sleep. Where dreams interrupt, apply to sacrum for 20 minutes then heart. It is also often effective to leave the therapy on low under the bed all night and to treat the pituitary for a couple of minutes.
Mid-back pain: Class A Apply to the tension. It takes time to dissolve the extensive tension which is often present here. Also apply to the solar plexus if tension or discomfort is found, and to the sacrum and heart. Where there is discomfort in back of knees, treat back of knees for 10 minutes each.
Migraine: Class B Treat headache pain directly for 10 to 20 minutes. There may be an initial increase in sensitivity. Apply to bottoms of feet and sweep down from head to toe, along along back and back of legs.
Myofascial pain: Class A Apply to local areas of pain, sacrum, heart, and pituitary. Be sure to sweep from head to toe and out arms. Prepare for increased pain when first applying the therapy, as it brings the areas of rigidity back to consciousness. It is best to start by sweeping the area at a distance of several inches and asking the patient what he is experiencing. Patient may experience increased pain after the first treatment and lesser increased pain after the second treatment. Warn the patient of this possibility and go easy on the first treatment. It is valuable to sweep from head to toe several times at the beginning, middle, and end of treatment.
Nausea, dyspepsia, vomiting, esophageal reflux: Class A Apply therapy to solar plexus for 10 minutes to calm nausea. Sweep down from mouth past solar plexus to calm upward movement of fluids. Often the upset will calm within a few minutes. Sometimes the area will be energized and a last bout of productive vomiting will occur and the digestive system will settle.
Neck and shoulder pain: Class A Apply to the areas of pain and tension, 10 minutes on each area. Sweep from the front down the neck and shoulders and out the arms. Sweep from the back down the spine and along the sides of the body out the legs.
Osteoarthritis: Class B Apply to the area of pain. Also apply to thyroid, sacrum and heart, 10 minutes each. If sacrum treatment evokes discomfort, focus treatment on sacrum and heart. Many report rapid relief after initial treatments lasting one to three days while others report no response.
Palpitation: Class B/C Class A. Treat the heart principally, though it is often valuable to also treat the liver where there is anger, and the sacrum where there is fear. Initial use of the therapy can induce a state of anxiety by activating angers and fears in the lower body. Where this is observed, it is valuable to delay treatment of liver and sacrum , and start with treating the bottoms of the feet and sweeping from head to toe. It is valuable to treat the heart from a distance of several inches away so the patient can process the anxiety gradually, moving the therapy closer to the heart as the discomfort subsides. Where palpitation is due to unrecognized fears, treatment is highly effective.
Peridontal problems: Class C Apply to face outside of problems for ten minutes each site, and on sacrum for 20 minutes, heart for 10 minutes, and for a few minutes over pituitary. Apply to heart during peridontal cleaning, as this procedure evokes conditioned responses of pain and nervous anticipation, which can be resolved with the transducer applied to the heart.
PMS Premenstrual syndrome: Class A Apply to points of discomfort such as CV-3 at lower abdomen and solar plexus. Also apply to sacrum and heart, and spend a few minutes over pituitary. Highly effective both for relieving pain and emotional calm. Most effective at onset, or a few days before period is anticipated.
Raynaud's disease: Class C: Apply therapy 20 minutes to sacrum, 10 minutes to heart, and three minutes to pituitary. Also apply to liver-3 on top of foot behind webs and p-6 on the palmar side of the wrist.
Rheumatoid arthritis: Classes B and C Treat the local area as required to relieve pain. Since arthritis is an aggressive dysfunction of the immune system, it is also valuable to spend a few minutes on the liver and the thymus. The bottom of the heel is another key point to treat, particularly when discomfort or other abnormalities are noted.
Sciatica: Apply the therapy for 3 minutes to each spot: the nerve root at the hip/buttocks, sacrum, inside of thigh above knee, outside of thigh above knee, back of knee, and bottom of foot. Then sweep down back and out bottom of foot.
Sinus infection: Class A/C Apply to sinuses 10 minutes on each site or until pressure is relieved and congestion is softened. Apply to thymus to invigorate immune system. Also apply 3 minutes to pituitary.
Tailbone pain: Class B Apply to tailbone 10 minutes, heart 10 minutes, and to any other areas in the low back or hips which shows increase in pain during the treatment. Treat back of knees if tender. Sweep down the back, out the tailbone, and out the feet.
Tendonitis: Class B: Apply to the area of pain. Treat liver for 10 minutes. Then sweep out arms, then down back, and particularly along the sides of the body and along outer legs and out feet at 4th toe (gallbladder meridian).
TMJ trigeminal neuralgia: Class A Apply to the pain and to tense or painful points around ear and on the neck below the ear. Then apply 20 minutes to the sacrum and 10 minutes to the heart. Li-4 at the web of thumb is also sometimes helpful.
Trauma: Class A Apply to heart. Also apply to area of trauma. If there is discomfort as the therapy gets close to the body, hold it a foot or two away and sweep from head to toe, gradually moving the transducer closer over a period of several minutes as the person relaxes and is comfortable.
Whiplash: B/C Apply to points of tension or pain on the neck and upper shoulders. Treat sacrum for 10 minutes and heart for ten minutes, and any other points along the spine which show significant pain or tension. The therapy is most effective if treatment is administered immediately after injury, to reduce the constriction of blood vessels and compression of nerves often associated with the trauma of whiplash. While a single treatment or three treatments in a week can be quite effective, it is often valuable to treat multiple times throughout the day for a few days.
Heart: The heart is the principal trauma processing point. In cases of shock, trauma, or emotional activity, apply the therapy to the mid to upper sternum. Mid sternum is better for trauma, and upper sternum, over the thymus, is better for immune function enhancement. This point is also effective for invigorating the lungs and strengthening them against infection. If the patient is aware of discomfort in the chest, apply directly to the area of discomfort until discomfort disappears or moves to another location.
Sacrum: Sacrum stores subconscious conditioned responses which are based on fears, and is a central point to activate release of tension and trauma in low back, hips, and coccyx, and throuh sympathetic responses can release tension throughout the body. Since a tremendous amount of fear and trauma can be stored in the abdomen and legs, treating the sacrum can resolve a large percentage of trauma based ailments such as chronic pain, hypertension, poor circulation, and impeded healing, as trauma based tension can cause constriction of muscles, blood vessels, and lymph tissues. Treating this point can evoke uncomfortable feelings, and even physical pains around the area of the heart, so it is best to treat this point in conjunction with the heart, activating, then processing conditioned responses based on fear and trauma. Treating sacrum and heart can help the patient move through emotional and mental hurdles as well.
Bottom of foot: Kidney-1 point located at the front of the arch promotes circulation in the legs from the low back to the feet. This includes lymph flow to decrease edema, Qi flow to facilitate the release of trauma, discarded aspects of consciousness, and blood flow to accelerate recovery. Ten minutes on the bottom of each foot can make a huge difference toward pain relief and recovery.
Pineal/Pituitary: These glands in the center of the upper head are treated by holding the therapy an inch or two in front of the forehead or above the crown of the head for 3 minutes or so. This activates the higher aspects of consciousness including intuition and inspiration, which often play key parts in accelerating the healing process.
Key Secondary Points:
Solar Plexus: The therapy for 10 minutes on this point helps to settle digestive upset of all kinds, as well symptoms caused by emotional attack.
Liver: Anger is often stored in the liver. This anger can show up as inflammation throughout the body. Treating the front, side, or back of the liver with the therapy can help to break this up. It is often desirable to also treat the heart to help process the anger released.
Lower abdomen: The point one inch below the navel is very valuable for vitalizing the physical body and helping to resolve intestinal and female organ problems.
Inside of knee: A point about two inches above the center of the knee on the inside of the leg, Spleen 6 is excellent for stimulating the bone marrow to enhance Qi and blood. Five minutes on each knee can give a needed boost to blood cell production.
Sweeping: Where localized discomfort is felt, it is often valuable to sweep the body with the therapy from head to toe, accross the area of discomfort. This activates tissue in a broad area, opening up pathways for the trauma to be released from the local area.
