The Mind Body Harmonizer:

In a nutshell …

The technology is simply used by attaching the ear clips to the ear lobes using a conductive gel to assure good contact.   Three stimulation settings are offered, each with different effects using a 3 position switch. The unit is turned on and adjusted until it is supplying a gentle electric massage through the earlobes. The electricity causes a shift in brain frequencies and neurotransmitter levels. It shuts off automatically after about 20 minutes.   A century of use of this relaxation tool suggests this be repeated daily for 2 or 3 weeks. After that it can be used as needed. The effects are long lasting because it uses the brain’s neuroplasticity to keep the changes.

Our design is “Blind Friendly.” That means it can be operated with no need for vision. It can be operated in the dark as well. The Harmonizer uses the traditional frequencies of stimulation recommended by Bob Beck including 0.5 hz, 100hz and 14.3 hz. It also uses 40hz which modern research has shown is associated with deep meditation and lucid dreaming.

We manufactured hundreds of units and sold them worldwide. There were no returns. Our device falls into the consumer relaxation device category and is now being advertised as a device for relaxation, stress management and to help with meditation.  It is not used for disease management. Our innovation is called “Harmonic Resonance” because 40 hz stimulation is used in an attempt to encourage a higher brainwave frequency by resonance.

I use your CES unit daily with numerous clients. I believe pairing anxiety provoking thoughts and memories with the more relaxed physiology that the device produces, enhances the therapeutic efficacy of our sessions. 

Several clients have purchased a unit for home use between sessions. I have purchased a few other types of CES units in the past and this is the best quality product at a good price. 

The multiple settings are also a plus. With the meditative 40 Hz setting seeming the most desirable.

I received my Harmonizer from my wonderful mum (Nutan) on one of my rest and retreat visits to her place. I have chronic pain, herniated disk, and have been diagnosed with PTSD and anxiety. For years I was on conventional medications for these “disorders” and they only made the symptoms seem exaggerated and I felt awful on them. So in the last 5 years I have been treating holistically instead. This addition of the harmonizer has cleared the brain fog. It has restored my thinking to a point where I feel focused and connected. I use the meditation or relax settings. Thank you so much for this device it is a major tool I use for managing.

Hi Ian,
I want you to know that I am pleased with the Harmoniser. I’m coming to the end of my two-week period of using it twice a day. So far I’ve just been using the Standard 40 hertz frequency. I haven’t yet explored the other two. I would say that the greatest benefit so far has been not getting into a negative state that hangs on for hours or days. There must be more firing of the synapses and I now have help in dealing with stress, without all the complexity of trial and error as well as the side effects from medication.
I also feel that my stress level has gone down and there are times that the Harmoniser has promoted a state of relaxation that allows pleasant images to float through my mind and then a good night’s sleep. Conversely, when I use it in the morning, along with my coffee it helps me to wake up, Some time I’ll have to try the Harmoniser without the coffee!.
Susan, Toronto, Ontario.
I am very thankful I found this device, I feel completely flipped from how I was two weeks ago. From not wanting to get out of bed to happy, healthy and back to my old hobbies. Thank you for this bringing this technology to Canada, I hope others find it as helpful as I have.

Unique Features

We added 40 hz based on the brain research funded by the Dalai Lama on Buddhist Meditation and brain wave frequencies. The research showed that experienced monks at the peak of meditation have dominant brain waves at 40 hz.  Later we discovered that German research showed that gentle 40 hz stimulation can trigger lucid dreaming.   As we learned more it seemed obvious that 40 hz needed to be added to the standard set of relaxation device frequencies for many reasons …

If you read the article there are many reasons to expect that 40 hz may be more effective at deep relaxation as well as meditation.

In the Standard setting, the machine uses a natural brain frequency of 40 hertz which is the Gamma brainwave frequency of a healthy brain.  40 hz brainwaves are associated with meditation.  The study below shows that German researchers were able to trigger lucid dreams using 40hz applied to the forehead.  Some purchasers are experimenting with this application.  The harmonizer is mainly meant for relaxation and stress reduction without drugs.   It can also be used to assist with learning meditation.  It may or may not induce lucid dreaming … open to amateur self experimenters.   We have no feedback yet on this application.  We encourage amateur self experimentation and collaboration.   There are no other Bob Beck type relaxation devices offering 40 hertz.

Intrinsically Safe Design

In over a century of use worldwide since 1902, this type of low intensity AC stimulation has never caused a single injury.   We are maintaining the same power and voltage levels as are normally used in consumer devices to guarantee safety.

Special Case Cautions

People with pacemakers, electronic brain shunts, cochlear implants or other cranially located electronic devices or who are on psychiatric drugs should consult with a physician before use.

Avoid using the harmonzer on any part of the body except the ear lobes.

People who are suffering from MS or Guillain–Barré syndrome should not use the harmonizer. These diseases are characterised by a loss of electrical insulation around the nerves.  Stimulation by a voltage waveform could make symptoms worse by encouraging further insulation breakdown.

Our Mind Body Harmonizer supplies the tool that will allow amateur research to happen.  We want to make The Harmonizer available directly to consumers without prescription.  Throughout the world similar devices have been available without prescription since about 1902.  Similar devices existed in the mid 1800s as well.

The ear clips shown above attach to the earlobes and provide a gentle tingling sensation and stimulation to the lower brain.  Most people find it a pleasant massage effect.

We have done our design based on Bob Beck’s open source designs and through reverse engineering of the waveforms used by as many relaxation devices as we could find. The design we settled on was proven to be effective in the 1980s by the engineer Bob Beck. Bob published his designs as an open source design to encourage experimenters such as us. His device was unregistered and remains in production to this day by several companies in Canada and the USA.  His waveform is also simple to produce and uniquely different in its approach so that there will be no patent conflicts with existing devices.

Helping Scientific Research Studies

Our waveform experiments are open source.  The Harmonizer is based on a small computer which can be programmed for other waveforms.  Amateur researchers can request special wavefroms if they purchase 10 or more units. We are making our standard waveform designs public domain.   This will help amateur researchers to fully understand what they are doing and also opens up the discussion of “effective waveforms” to other product designers  too.  It should be noted that therapists outside the medical community are currently using consumer based relaxation devices in their practices.

Future Blog for Experimenters

This is a WordPress site and a blog will be added so that researchers and users can talk to each other and share experimental results.   When amateur testers have results these results can be posted here too. This blog can be customized to suit the needs of amateur self researchers.

Consumer Freedom

We are making the Mind Body Harmonizer available to consumers for relaxation, concentration, meditation and stress management.   We would rather that the stimulatory relaxation technology remains prescription free in Canada just like it is in Europe and Asia. The effects are open to discovery by your testing. We hope that users will report new applications that they discover it is useful for.

The Harmonizer is partly robot assembled on Vancouver Island but finished & tested by hand.

A General Public Licence GPL3 applies to the waveform shown in the open source waveform section.
