Healing Sounds:
Group 1

Richard A. Feely, D.O.

Each ZangFu organ when it is healthy has its’ own sound, pitch, frequency and harmonics that they vibrate to. When one is ill or more specifically when a person has an organ that is ill, dysfunctional or diseased, that person has a hard time or can’t make that organ sound. The illness causes the organ to change its’ own frequency, so it does not vibrate to its’ own healthy frequency.

This cause of frequency change can be summed up in one word that changes organ physiology; stress. Metabolic stress, cellular stress, neurological stress organ stress and finally physiological stress. These stresses in Chinese medicine affect the persons Qi or energy. The free flow of Qi begins to change and becomes stagnant. Further stress over time causes Qi blockage either in the energy channel or within the organ it penetrates. Over time this Qi blockage turns into Organ deficiency. Organ deficiency turns into organ disease and ultimately organ death. This occurs first by causing system dysfunction which stresses more and different related organ systems, which progress to organ death and finally to the death of the individual human being.

Nature provides healing sounds for all of mankind. These include rain, river, lake, sea sounds, falling leaves, falling snow, birds singing, etc. ZangFu Sound making is a self treatment. If done daily for 3 weeks they will move stagnant Qi within the organ (ZangFu) system that the sound relates to. For instructions see the end of this page.
