John Beaulieu has done a wonderful job with this book, especially for those of us who are visually oriented and like to see the concepts presented in a visual manner - lots of diagrams. John's knowledge of the history of music and it's use in healing, as well as his vast knowledge as a composer and musician, make this work valuable if you're planning on using music in your own therapeutic work. I'd recommend it very highly. I've referred to John's web site for quite some time for information, and have been impressed with his generosity in sharing files he has composed. I haven't seen that on very many sites. John's CD's are also excellent.

Unique Vibrational Healing

As a Holistic Practitioner, I recently became interested in what some have called "vibrational medicine". I found Beaulieu's unique observations into the world of sound, music and healing to be thrilling and his views have urged me to continue looking into the realm of sound. I have adopted some of his tenets into my consulting work. Information on voice energetics was most interesting; combining physiology with energy concepts, as was the chapter on tuning forks. A great read.

Bursting with information!

This book is one of those that rather than elaborate for some thousand pages on just a few gold nuggets, has MANY peices of valuable information, from tuning forks to elements to patterns and more!! This book is done from a semi-scientific approch and the author has done a wonderful job researching! Lots of diagrams and pictures. Very easy to understand and put to practical use.If You like sound and want to expand it into healing for yourself and others this book could be just what your looking for!
