Does SOUND sounds like a good idea for you to ease your body pain? Or does SOUND a sound idea to ease your body pain?
Well it may “sound” odd that I used so many “sounds” in my statements, but how many times did the right sound made you fall asleep, or made you feel relaxed while you’re on a table for a massage?
This same principle, I am guessing, is what makes the claims of a technology effective.
Medsonix Acoustic Resonating Therapy System is a pain management system that integrates a medical device that uses low frequency sound waves, to increase blood flow and mobility, reduce inflammation and pain and relieve symptoms of many diseases and disorders.
It was accidentally invented by a plant manager and transducer designer for military subcontractor, Mr. Alphonse “Al” Cassone, in mid-90s while doing a machine supposedly to separate gold from black sand. Later on to find out the sound coming from his machine was greatly affecting a neighbor who was suffering from arterial sclerosis
The Medsonix is from Las Vegas, Nevada USA and being used there for years already.
The Medsonix is available now in the Philippines, particularly at Clinica Manila, an ambulatory clinic located at the second floor of SM Megamall in Ortigas. I was able to try the Medsonix for myself as per invitation by the company in the Philippines.
The Medsonix technology is new in the country. Barely a year to be exact. But in the United States, it has been used by many patients for 15 years already. Most of the patients who have experienced relief are suffering from arthritis, migraine, sciatica, back and joint pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, multiple sclerosis, bursitis, Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, diabetic neuropathy and peripheral vascular disease.
And since Medsonix Acoustic Resonating Therapy uses sounds, the whole process is non-invasive and drug-free therapy system. It is also approved by and registered with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as Class A.
How does the Medsonix Acoustic Resonating Therapy work?
The Long version.
Medsonix Acoustic Resonating machine converts electrical energy into acoustic energy that emits a low frequency acoustic waveform which permeates the body and causes a natural healing process to take place. This acoustic waveform is generated effectively in an Omni-directional beam pattern (360?) which means that up to six people can treat during one therapy session. The result of the low frequency acoustic energy waveform is like tuning fork which creates a sound wave that permeates the body naturally and allows a natural healing process to take place.
In short, you just have to sit down and not do anything.
A session lasts for about 30 minutes. All I needed to do was just sit down and the Medsonix machine did the rest.
I was together with three other bloggers invited to try the machine. It was just a small room in Clinica Manila where the device is located.
There was a table in the middle with headset and media player device.
For that session, only 4-5 people were allowed to maximize the effectiveness of the program.
During the session, people can actually talk and mingle, even read or watch. However, due to the odd sound coming from the Medsonix device, it is more appropriate to have other sounds more suitable for you.
The sound coming from the device is somewhat like the sound you hear during the absence of sound. That kind. Though, the sound is tolerable. However, if you’re not used to that kind, you’d rather listen to your own playlist.
During the session, there was a slight tingling feeling at first. Probably due to the first perception of sound coming from the machine in my system. After a while, it just felt like normal.
According to the Medsonix staff in the Philippines, results vary for different people. At least 3 to 4 sessions show more permanent results.
According to Medsonix, a study conducted in the University of Las Vegas Nevada School of Nursing and Physical Therapy in 2000, showed that the 21 adults found that “the use of acoustic energy as a form of therapy may improve range of motion and decrease pain” for Arthritis and Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) patients and was published in an international medical journal.
Each session cost Php 1,500.
In my opinion, if you have tried almost every drug, or afraid of any operation for your arthritis or similar related pains, the Medsonix is a low-risk process as it does not require you to drink any drug or you to be operated at. With that, it can worth your time to help you address any pain your experiencing.
Of course, heartaches caused by a failed relationship is another story. 😉
As for me, I have to try probably two more sessions to find out its effect on me. Since I don’t suffer from arthritis or any severe muscular pains.
