Description: Third-generation electrical device developed in China which transmits extremely low frequency ("Infratonic") sound waves, below the level of human hearing, through hand-held wand. This device is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use as a massage device and this is the only use we recommend. Additional information is provided for educational purposes only.
Method of Action: Emitted Qi energy has been studied in a variety of research contexts both in China and in the U.S. Qi Gong practitioners at advanced levels of study are able to project Qi energy into the bodies of others. The Infratonic QMG device simulates and transmits one form of energy emitted by advanced practitioners of Qi Gong in the form of extremely low frequency (ELF) sound wave formations between 8 and 14 Hz. In studies, neurotransmitter levels were affected by the Infratonic QMG transmission with norepinephrine and dopamine levels rising significantly and 5-hydroxytamine decreasing substantially. I-QMG also appears to improve blood flow, increases metabolism, accelerates immune response and facilities cellular repair. (Interestingly these results have been demonstrated in mice and rabbits as well as humans.)
Indications and Usage: Useful in most disorders which can be treated through acupuncture including, pain conditions, asthma, anxiety, depression, immune system regulation, joint and muscle pain.
Contraindications: Should not be used by individuals who have a pacemaker or other electrical medical device. Should be avoided by persons who are pregnant or lactating.
Dosage and Administration: Treatment sessions are generally 20 minutes but vary widely depending on the condition being treated. Generally the I-QGM is operated Low or Medium settings. Wand can be held as much as two feet from the target body site, but is generally held 2 inches above skin surface.
Clinical Effect In: Varies widely depending on condition being treated. Immediate effects are seen in many conditions including psychological and psychiatric problems.
Adverse Reactions: None noted. Strong (above 150 dB) infrasonic sounds can damage human tissue. The FDA has determined that infrasonic sound below 130 dB are not harmful to humans.
