BioSonic Repatterning is a holistic healing method within the branch of energy medicine. This type of alternative or complementary medicine uses sound to develop the consciousness, in order to advance healing processes. Sound treatments used in BioSonic Repatterning can include the use of melodies, chants, and tuning forks. The belief behind the method is that audible ratios are inherent within the natural world and these sounds can foster states of relaxation, allowing the mind and body to remain at ease and diminish any existing burdens, increase blood flow and circulation, and achieve elevated levels of consciousness.
Eventually, after becoming familiar with the process of BioSonic Repatterning, one should be able to condition his or her body and mind to think sonically. This way of thinking is expected to then create a positive nervous system reaction, thereby improving the body's health. BioSonic Repatterning attempts to achieve a state where the sense of sound, as opposed to vision, governs the perceptions. To properly align the body's energy, bodywork methods such as tuning forks, are used to re-pattern the body and align it with our own “life sound.”
BioSonic Repatterning was created by Dr. John Beaulieu. Beaulieu created the method while in an anechoic chamber at New York University. The chamber was soundproof and akin to that of a sensory deprivation room. With all external distractions eliminated, Beaulieu was able to focus on his own body. While in the chamber, Beaulieu explored the practices of John Cage — a philosopher and composer.
Cage had been in an anechoic chamber himself and heard two sounds. After consulting an engineer, he was told that the low sound he heard was related to his circulatory system, and the high sound he heard was related to his nervous system. Dr. John Beaulieu, who's also a trained musician, studied the merit of the engineer's explanation by sitting in an anechoic chamber for long intervals within a two year span. Beaulieu took notes on the sounds that his own body made and aligned them with various consciousness states and the resonance of his nervous system. He experimented with different sounds and their times, ultimately finding that he could realign the sounds of his nervous system by using tuning forks.
The tuning forks used in BioSonic Repatterning are tapped to create musical interludes that are derived from Pythagorean tuning — a musical tuning system that conforms its intervals to a 3:2 frequency ratio. By creating sounds at these intervals, an exemplary resonance is created that is said to re-pattern the mind, body and soul. The inner ear canals and vestibular system, which aids one's equilibrium, can then realign the body during a method of cellular memory centered on the innate ratios of these tuning forks.
Throughout the listening process employed in BioSonic Repatterning, our body can essentially reposture itself in order to embrace the ratio and sound correctly. Upon close listening, the high and low pitches that are derived from our right and left brain hemispheres can be discovered. These pitches then alter in rate, volume, and tone according to our state of consciousness. BioSonic Repatterning incorporates every interval of sound from the body tuners and solar harmonic spectrum to singular states that can be united from the five natural elements of ether, air, fire, water and earth.
