EVERYTHING is in vibration. 

Most of the mass of your body is determined by protons and neutrons, which are made up of quarks. The kinetic and potential energy associated with these quarks is so intense that it makes up 98% of the mass of all matter.

Quarks are elementary particles. Like the electrons, they are not made up of any other particles. You could say that they are on the ground floor of the Standard Model of particle physics.


Quarks forming a particle such as a proton may be vibrating independently in the whole particle as well as vibrating along with the total particle. As is known, quarks are spinning and are vibrating. All fundamental particles are vibrating or oscillating Therefore, quarks, being fundamental should be vibrating also.


Cymatics gives validity to the fact that everything that we perceive as hard objects, including our bodies, are actually continuously vibrating at their own rates. This study clearly merges the fields of sound, geometry, light and mathematics into one through the presentation of stunning images created by frequencies of all kinds found in our bodies.


Focusing on the mechanism itself can be highly complex. Craver and Bechtel describe four dimensions of mechanisms:  a phenomenal dimension—a mechanism does things. For music the human ear offers a basic mechanism illustration. The ear translates compression and decompression of air molecules into the conscious perception of sound.

When music or audible sound is considered for its vibratory (rhythmicity) effects, a third category of response mechanism emerges and its focus becomes primarily cellular. The most basic and oldest use of vibratory effect is the mechanical “shaking” of the body and more recently specific areas and cells. Another more specific category of cellular response is the effect of driving a neural modulatory response. The importance of rhythmic brain activity, and the potential for sensory stimulation to drive it, has not received much attention until recently. However, for music as a vibratory phenomenon this is an important mechanism to study.

As mentioned on our previous page, the vegus nerve is an integral part of the nervous system, 

A fascinating fact about hearing is the association of the ear to the pneumogastric, or tenth, cranial nerve, a.k.a. the vagus nerve because it wanders through the thoracic and abdominal cavities. It regulates the functions of many major organs, among them lungs, heart, stomach, kidneys and the liver.


Originating in the brain, it attaches to the inner and outer eardrum, the conveyors of vibrations generated by sound in the ear, and ends all the way down by the anus. As a result, sound is not just vibrating the eardrum but with the help of the vagus nerve it resonates and vibrates, or “massages”, the entire being on a cellular level.

One of the effects of vibration applied to the body acknowledged by the FDA in 1996 was an increase in blood circulation. The question is by what mechanism does vibration affect blood flow. A crucial signaling molecule that has a pivotal role in regulating blood flow and oxygenation of tissues is nitric oxide (NO). Nitric oxide is produced and released into the blood by the endothelial cells that line the blood vessels and lymphatic vessels. Vibration stimulates the endothelial cells to produce and release NO in several forms of which the isoform endothelial nitric oxide synthase.

Improvements in peripheral circulation have also been noted , muscle oxygenation is also linked to vibration therapy. During physical activity, blood flow to active muscle tissue increases in response to increased demands for oxygen and nutrients and an increased need to eliminate carbon dioxide and hydrogen ions. 


Although the science behind tissue oxygenation and blood flow is more than we’re going to get into here, some research indicates that if whole-body vibration increases blood flow or oxygenation, it may have therapeutic potential in any situation where an increase in blood flow or muscle oxygenation is required.

By boosting circulation and improving whole-body blood flow, vibration therapy can further support injury recovery and post-workout soreness by allowing the body to bring extra nutrients and cells required for repair to the injury site. For example, increasing blood flow, oxygen, and nutrients to a muscle tear or strain site could accelerate healing because the necessary building blocks for the repair are provided through the bloodstream. Increasing blood flow facilitates faster transportation of these compounds and speeds up recovery. 

The same concept can be applied to DOMS. Increased blood flow facilitates faster delivery of the nutrients required to heal micro-tears created by strenuous exercise. On top of that, better circulation also allows for enhanced removal of metabolic waste and byproducts, which may reduce muscle soreness and accelerate recovery.
