How the Power of Sound will Improve Healthcare

Mandara Cromwell the CEO of Cyma Technologies joins Dr. George to discusses the power of sound to bridge the gap between eastern and western medicine to create a new level of healthcare.

About Mandara Cromwell

Power of Sound: Bridging the Gap Between East and West

Mandara Cromwell is the CEO of Cyma Technologies and is responsible for bringing the work of Dr. Peter Guy Manners to the United States. She developed his more than 40 years of research along with new findings by other scientists and doctors into the advanced sound technology devices manufactured by Cyma Technologies, now available to consumers.

Manners had worked since the 1940s with a collaborative group of scientists and medical doctors in researching the biosignatures of the human body. During that time, he and his group developed over 700 commutations to identify the precise combinations of frequencies associated with healthy tissue and organ systems. Each commutation consisted of five harmonic frequencies of audible sound that supported the body in normalizing imbalances and synchronizing the cell’s frequency back to its natural state of vibrational resonance.

While Dr. Manners and his colleagues were proceeding with their research, another Swiss medical doctor, Hans Jenny was conducting “cymatic” (sound wave) experiments. Jenny coined the new term, “cymatics,” which comes from the Greek word meaning wave. Due to respect for Jenny’s work, Dr. Manners named his work “cymatic therapy.”

Ms. Cromwell began traveling to the United Kingdom in 2001 to study with Dr. Manners, which initiated her journey to bring these therapeutic sound developments to the United States. During one of her visits, Dr. Manners gave his research to her saying, “I have taken this work as far as I can. Now it is your turn.”

Passing the Torch

Dr. Manners closed the Bretforton Clinic, where people from all over the world had visited to learn Cymatic therapy, in 2005. Then, in 2009, Dr. Manners passed on, moving into the realms of celestial sound. Since the time of his passing, Ms. Cromwell has taken the original instruments that Dr. Manners worked with, such as the Mark series and the Cyma 1000 and evolved them into the innovative technology found in the AMI—Acoustic Meridian Intelligence devices offered by Cyma Technologies today.

Ms. Cromwell coined the word, Cymatherapy™ in respect for Dr. Manners’ work and as an indicator of the evolution of the devices and healing aspects of therapeutic sound. In 2013, the AMI 750, Ms. Cromwell’s own invention, was nominated for the Thomas Edison Award for Innovation in the fields of Science and Medicine.

In addition to her innovations in advanced sound technology, Ms. Cromwell also founded ISTA, the International Sound Therapy Association, a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing the public’s awareness of the power of sound in our environment and its healing effects. ISTA provides and promotes education in therapeutic sound modalities. Ms. Cromwell lectures on behalf of ISTA and Cyma Technologies, introducing therapeutic sound as part of the medicine of the future to audiences all over the world.
