Our day-to-day routine can get hectic, don’t you agree? Yes, is the answer I hear so often when I meet yoga practitioners, working parents and mothers-to-be. We lack sleep, time to ourselves or just a quiet moment to collect our thoughts. And we may be thinking about the many new therapies offered today to counter the stresses of our modern lifestyle. In this article, we’ll take a look at Scalar energy therapy and how it may help us.
The Energy Around Us
We know very well that energy is emitted in the environment we’re in. Some of these fields are called electromagnetic fields and electric fields. These exist when we walk, sit in the office or even as read this article on your mobile device.
Research shows that some energy heals and relaxes us.
Have you tried being in a state of meditation?
Sit down on a chair or in cross-legged position on the floor, and close your eyes. Take five deep breaths and let the relaxing waves engulf you, calming your mind and body. Your yoga teacher would have already encouraged you to do this often to tap into this soothing energy.
Why? Because deep breathing helps to calm to your nervous system (Sympathetic Nervous System or SNS) and balance to the adrenal system.
Our SNS is constantly on the go due our culture that prizes excitement, aggressiveness and high-stressed paces at the office or even at home. We know that long-term effects of stress is not good for the human body. What more for expectant mothers and their babies.
Clinical neuropsychologist Dr Susan Andrews writes about stress, particularly for pregnant women, about how it is damaging if it does not let up. She said constant stress could alter the body’s stress management system, causing it to overreact and trigger an inflammatory response.
“Inflammation, in turn, has been linked to poorer pregnancy health and developmental problems in babies down the road.
“Chronic stress may also contribute to subtle differences in brain development that might lead to behavioural issues as the baby grows,” she writes in her book, Stress Solutions for Pregnant Moms.
So to counter those effects, we’ll want to engage our second nervous system, the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS) designed to help us rest and digest.
Research notes that we need to switch on our healing system (PNS) when we go to bed at night so we can rest and repair ourselves. But if our bodies continue to be stressed and active in the SNS mode, natural healing may not be effective.
Our brain waves travel from one system to the next, and at times there is lack of movement from the SNS to the PNS, due to our modern fast-paced lifestyle.
Therapies like Scalar Energy
Being in meditation, sound bathing sessions, reiki therapy and even yoga are often encouraged by therapists and medical practitioners. Health experts tell us frequently to let our brains rest so it can shift into the PNS mode and reap the healing that our body craves and needs.
Scalar energy may be an option for our bodies to achieve this goal and benefit from a deeper state of relaxation when the body is allowed to heal.
Known also as non-linear waves, Tesla waves and zero-point energy, as well as “chi”, Scalar was discovered by Scottish Mathematician James Clerk Maxwell in the 1800s, but it took innovator Nikola Tesla to demonstrate the existence of Scalar energy nearly a half a century later.
When two electromagnetic waves come together from opposite converging vectors it creates Scalar energy. When they meet, the equal frequencies cancel each other out, leaving a stationary energy field. For science buffs, Scalar is a spectrum of energy between the frequencies of 7 to 13 Hz.
This energy field neutralises chaotic incoming signals from the environment and from our negative thoughts, allowing our cells to self-heal. It also encourages the release of ubiquitin, a form of protein that repairs DNA damage.
Is it good for you?
As with any therapy, we’ll take a look at some of the research out there.
First, neuroscientists found a correlation between an increase of alpha brain waves with the reduction of depressive symptoms and boost in creative thinking.
They found that it creates an environment that allows the brain to shift from beta, to alpha and other lower brain waves, allowing the brain to rest and heal.
Other studies point to the experiences of being in a room with Scalar energy helping to reduce inflammation and slow down aging process .
And in cancer research, some experts found that the ability for Scalar energy to raise the energy potential (transmembrane) of cells, making them stronger to prevent the spread of cancer and helps in healing.
Scalar Energy Therapy
Scalar energy therapy involves placing a generator in a common living space or yoga room. The devices emits the energy.
My colleagues who are fitness trainers have experienced Scalar energy therapy with differing but positive testimonials.
Some found that they felt more relaxed in the Scalar therapy room, while others fell into deep sleep. I found that the therapy energised me, leaving me refreshed for my next invigorating yoga class.
We spoke to 20-year-old expectant mother Hannah Schmidt from Canada who tried the therapy. She told us this: “I felt a little sick in the first day being near this scalar generator, much like what happens when I go from a hotel room to out into the middle of nature and feel sick from the sudden drop in EMF radiation.
“Soon, I felt comfortable and relaxed. No alarms in my head urging me to escape from the energy in the room, which I’ve had to ignore all my life.
“I used to have to go outside to centre myself back into the earth — especially while I’m fighting a headache, or dull pain. I’m pregnant, so my sensitivity to danger is heightened at this time, but I feel safe with the Scalar generator next to me. I feel that it is very positive for my baby’s development.”
There is still much discussion about therapies like Scalar energy. So do go over the research and talk to a medical professional before embarking on any sort of treatment.
