How was it Discovered?
In the 1960s Hans Jenny, a Swiss scientist, found that low-frequency sounds produced simple geometric shapes in various materials. Increasing the frequency created more complex patterns. For instance, the sound OH created a perfect circle.
In the 1970s a jazz musician named Fabien Maman, working with a French physicist (Joel Sternheimer), discovered that body tissues, organs and acupuncture meridians each have their own musical note. He went on to work with Helene Grimal, a French scientist. They discovered that even at lower volumes, sound had an effect not only on healthy cells but also on cancerous ones.
Progressing the sounds up the musical scale caused the cancerous cells to ‘explode’.
“It appears that the cancerous cells were not able to support a progressive accumulation of frequencies…The healthy cells appeared supple and able to freely receive, absorb and return the energy. In contrast, the cancerous cells appeared inflexible and immutable in their structure.”
Another musician, Jim Oliver, put sounds into a pair of headphones strapped to someone’s ankles.
They responded to the sounds although their ears couldn’t hear them.
More recently, Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto played music to water. Classical music produced beautiful water crystals, as did healing music, Tibetan mantras and folk music. Heavy metal music, on the other hand, along with Japanese pop music, produced ugly, disfigured crystals.
Given that our bodies are made up of several elements, including water (70%) wouldn’t this suggest that we can be influenced by the sounds around us, and this influence extends to affecting the water, tissues, organs and cells in our bodies.

What are Sound Pulses?
The Three Main Sound Pulses
There are different types of sound pulses or beats used in brainwave entrainment. The three main ones are:
1. Binaural which have been around for a long time. Different frequencies are played into each ear, causing the brain to produce electrical impulses that match the difference between the two frequencies. They require the use of headphones. After a time the brain gets used to them and tends to ignore them.
2. Monaural beats are thought to have a longer term effect than binaural beats. They consist of pulses at the same frequency played simultaneously into both ears. They don’t have to be listened to through headphones.
3. Isochronic tones are the latest and most up to date tool of brainwave entrainment. They are more intense and have more effect on the brain.
MeditationMonk uses isochronic tones in its sessions, either singularly or in combination with monaural or binaural beats.
