Vocal sounds are part of ancient traditional Chinese medicine and are known to be one of the Taoist secrets. Our work has tried to demonstrate the ability of the human voice to induce an organ energetical reaction, in order to establish a normal pattern of qi in acupuncture points and meridians.
The vocalization of Li Xiaoming has been recorded with digital equipment, in real time. The recording has been rearranged in a professional musical studio in order to obtain 10 minutes of a continuous sound. This has been possible through a sophisticated mixing duplication technique based on vocal computerized sampling.
We chose, as a vocal reference, the healing sound of the stomach. This sound has been presented for several minutes to 10 voluntary subjects, in a silent room, lying on beds, with eyes closed.
Measures of Zusanli (st 36) on the left leg of the voluntary subjects was obtained with a cybernetical equipment named Orthogen 200 built in California, U. S. A. This equipment is based on the old technique proposed by the German doctor Voll in 1957, now rearranged in a more sophisticated computerized version.
Many studies, also developed in China, have been enhanced to detect electrical potential recorded on the skin of patients. But, in this instrument the measurement is very accurate and consistent, to determine the exact amount of energy present in an acupuncture point related also to the time necessary to induce distant organ reaction level. That means, in other words, to obtain the vascularization of the organ through the chemical-physical reaction measured in the time domain. First data are suggestive of a significative modification of the energy pattern induced on stomach, as a response to a passive listening of the digitalized continuous sound reproduced on a tape recorder.
More incisive pattern is instead obtained by the direct vocalization of the sound as supported by classical qigong exercise, recorded with an Orthogen equipment, on some students of Li Xiaoming. Final work will be sustained by more subject investigations and statistical and graphical analysis will be proposed.
