The particles brought into motion
follow a direction back and forth from the source. Cells forming human
tissue transmit the sound wave energy to adjacent cells while at the same
time absorbing some of the energy. This process continues until all of
the energy has been absorbed and the wave ceases to propagate.
Different cells, which make
up human tissue, have different characteristics and therefore have their
own natural or resonant frequencies. When cells are struck by the sound
wave nearest their own natural frequency, they oscillate more strongly.
This is how we hear and distinguish different tones.
INTRASOUND is a rate
of vibrations which can be sensed by the human ear, 20 to 20,000 vibrations
per second (Hz). The frequencies above this range are ultrasound
and those below are intrasound. They cannot be heard.
SONAFON produces mixed frequencies
in the intrasound range, the natural frequency of living cells and most
tissues in our body. This causes no significant temperature increases and
therefore does not require the precautions usually associated with ultrasound.
When massaging with the SONAFON, little energy is needed to yield a powerful
sensation. The key to SONAFON effectiveness is its ability to trigger resonance
across the wide range of body cell frequencies.
Physiology: The mixed frequencies
adapt in a physiological way to the conditions of the tissues. An intense
massage is created within the affected tissue at the cellular level, and
as the cells collide and oscillate back and forth, it generates compression
and dilation zones. Tightened cell-wall membranes are produced resulting
in increased blood and lymph circulation and thereby improved metabolism.
It is through intensive stimulation
of the SONAFON, that benefits of the natural function of cellular, circulatory,
and nervous systems are achieved.
INTRASOUND waves spread out
in substances having low resistance, including lymph and spinal fluids,
cartilage and muscle tissue,and especially bone. Therefore, significant
therapeutic value is obtained, particularly when treating joints. The waves
enter the joints, penetrating skin and fat layers as well as the protective
tissue surrounding the joints. The ability of INTRASOUND to transmit through
these layers allows deep-seated and superficial areas to benefit.
INTRASOUND treatment has
been shown to improve circulation and alleviation of pains in joints and
muscles. It is excellent for cranial use, and for sinus congestion. The
intensity can be adjusted to a very low level and therefore, the SONAFON
is also excellent for areas too painful or acute for hands-on work or ultrasound.
SONAFON therapy is ideal:
A wide intensity range allows for gentle massaging those sensitive areas.
It is also very effective in cases of injuries without provable fracture,
or muscle strain - such as sprains, blows, bruises, and many sport injuries,
especially near the joints. The pain very often disappears rapidly after
the joint becomes mobile again.
