Sonatherapy® – About Sonatherapy®

About Sonatherapy®.

From the Preface to Sonatherapy: Sonatherapy® is a unique new combinatorial therapy developed by Dr. Gary Robert Buchanan over the last four decades.


The technology is trade-marked by Cosolargy® International and includes the essential healing elements of light, color, sound, water and subtle energies.


Sound Applications

The underlying technology is vibrational — Cymatic Therapy, i.e., as originally developed by the late Sir Dr. Peter Guy Manners over a period of 50-60 years at his Bretforton Hall clinic in England. Specific combinations of frequencies in the mid- and lower registers are known to resonate, for example, cells, tissues, organs, bones, nerves, etc., at their Buchanan Treating Backoptimal, healthiest, resonances. By reintroducing such arrays into the body and its fields entrainment may be achieved and healing more rapidly advanced. Numerous videos showing the Cymatic sound geometries in water and actual therapies taking place at Steamboat Healing Center may be viewed HERE Each acoustic “Sonation” is specially designed and viewed as a standing wave Cymatic pattern, e.g., in a few drops of water under magnification. As the body is over 70% visceral waters, the observed geometries are a “key” in classifying biological conditions and functions. Cymatic videos for guided imagery during therapies are also produced and utilized in sessions. Whereas Dr. Manners’ “commutations” were applied monophonically, the newly designed Sonations are applied in stereo and pulsed/panned at infrasonic rates, thereby increasing inductive capacities and lessening time required for entrainment. Further, these Wave Front BIOresonanceTM Sonations are far more complex than those of Dr. Manners and are based upon harmonic relationships accurate to within several decimal places. This is a “musical” concept.


Sonatherapy® also includes preliminary bathing in geothermal waters, so that the body is warm and moist prior to Buchanan Treating Feetinitial inductions. Sonations are also sounded in acoustic foot baths and in geothermal baths so that the entire body may be entrained more naturally and fully. Results of entrainment may be ascertained via simple thermography and basic auric field mensuration programs and devices.

Light & Color Applications

Via a light organ attachment, light and colors are also applied during therapy sessions — with the light pulsing and panning in synchronicity with the audio signals. This pulsative approach allows for dramatically greater absorption of irradiations. Colors chosen for conditions and functions are achieved with simple filters and PAR cans positioned above the body and follow the archived codes of Cosolargy® International, the Dinshah Society, Theo Gimbel, and myriad other researchers who have compiled such studies over the last two centuries.

Subtle Energies

According to fourth-dimensional, quantum, physics, the greatest sources of Vital Life Energies, Prana, Chi, etc., derive from Sunlight (Light & Color), Sound, Oxygen, Water, and Sacred Geometry. By combining all of these elements in a Sonatherapy® treatment, improved heath physiologically and psychologically are inevitable. Sensitive Sonatherapists, 65 PE PRANA Glyphschooled in the one- to two-year Academy program of the Jamilian University (Cosolargy® International) can perceive these higher-dimensional energetic patterns, via tactile and visual means, and work directly with the energy patterns of the body and its fields.

Additional Approaches

Also used in Sonatherapy® are supplemental approaches, e.g., aromatherapy, myofascial alignments, crystals, vocalizations, and radionics. However, all sessions are designed for holistic treatment of the individual and are dependent upon the conscious needs and perception of that person. In other words, a musculo-skeletal condition may be simply treated, while more serious, chronic conditions may require numerous sessions. Such may or may not involve additional approaches.


Standard vibrotactile applicators, e.g., as produced by Telesound Ltd. in England, are employed, along with numerous other specially designed transducers and wands exclusive to our Sonatherapy® international facilities. Such include infrasonic transducers, low- and mid-range transducers and speakers, etc. Sound tables and chairs are also utilized. Recently, Sona Group associate, Adam Reed of Ashland, Oregon, has developed new Sonatherapy® applicators and the SONA ANALOG BOX that produces pure sinusoidal analog wave frequency combinations, accurate to within four decimal places, and includes infrasound, stereo panning, and light/color synchronous pulsations. That unit may be obtained by contacting Mr. Reed: sonabox912@gmail.com Standard units with applicators are custom designed and costs begin at less than $3,000.


Initial research and development of Sonatherapy® was begun by Dr. Buchanan during 1975-1976 while he was pursuing doctoral studies at the University of Washington in Seattle and Academy Studies with Cosolargy International in Nevada. Full applications began officially in 2004 at Steamboat Healing Center. Working with many others from around the globe, e.g., Dr. James L. Oschman, Dr. Karl Maret, Dr. Thomas Stearns Lee, Manners’ colleague Yukinori Matsushita in Japan, the therapy has now reached a level of efficacy that allows for the establishment of facilities in other nations.


Sonatherapy® is not meant to replace any other medical or diagnostic system. Rather, the technology is designed to assist in more rapid and complete healing of conditions — which in many cases traditional and alternative approaches do not address. The basics of Sonatherapy® may be found in two texts, both published by Cosolargy® International through The Music Guild, i.e., SONA: Healing with Wave Front BIOresonance (2008) and Sonatherapy: Healing with Light, Color, Sound, Water & Subtle Energies (2012). Both books were authored by Dr. Gary Robert Buchanan, Director of WFB Research at Steamboat Healing Center, Nevada and are available HERE


Sonatherapists undergo minimally a one-year training program with Cosolargy® International via the Academy Program of the Jamilian University. During this period additional texts, papers, and readings are required, and in-residence hands-on training modules take place at Steamboat Healing Center. Final authorization is given only to those who have proven their healing capacities and who maintain an ongoing relationship with the University and Healing Center. Any breach of that relationship automatically de-certifies the practitioner, as Sonatherapy® is an ongoing learning process, and we are only in the beginning stages of what may be accomplished over time. It is essential that the potential Sonatherapist understand what he/she is doing while aiding others in healing of body, mind, and spirit. It is most helpful if the student/therapist has a background in alternative healing, is perhaps a licensed massage therapist, etc. However, if one is properly schooled in Cosolargy® and Sonatherapy®, there is little need for concern about recognition by any official body other than the Jamilian University and Steamboat Healing Center. Importantly, those enrolled with the Jamilian University are studying the “Religious Arts, Sciences, and Technologies” of Cosolargy®. Students who complete these studies (two years) are eligible for “ordination,” if desired. Ordained ministers in the United States are allowed to “lay on heads” and “heal” people. This is a constitutionally guaranteed right. (Cosolargy® International began its study program in 1962.)

Sonatherapy Research & Development takes place at Steamboat Healing Center in Reno, Nevada (Link/Appointments: http://steamboatsprings.org/) , where Dr. Buchanan also treats clients and trains practitioners. Currently, students and/or therapists are based in Nevada, Japan, South Africa, Austria, Wisconsin, and other global locations.
