More about Dr. Beaulieu

“I discovered BioSonic Repatterning™ while sitting in an anechoic chamber at New York University. The chamber is a completely soundproof room that resembles a sensory deprivation chamber. I had read about the experiences of the composer-philosopher John Cage and decided to conduct a similar experiment. While in the chamber, Cage heard two sounds, one high-pitched and the other low-pitched. The engineer was working with informed him that the high sound was his nervous system and the low sound was his blood circulating.

“Inspired by John Cage’s experience, I sat in an anechoic chamber for five hundred hours over a period of two years and listened to the sounds of my own body. I began to correlate different states of consciousness with the different sounds of my nervous system. Being a trained musician, I noticed that the high-pitched sounds of my nervous system consisted of several sounds in different intervals. Then one day I brought two tuning forks and tapped them. Immediately I observed that the sound of my nervous system came into resonance with the sound of the tuning forks. It was then I realized that people can be tuned like musical instruments!”
