Infratonic therapy is a therapeutic massage method which involves infusing damaged or abnormal tissue with high and low frequency signals in several forms, including mechanical massage, acoustical, and magnetic.
The low frequency signal includes bands of randomly varying frequencies, predominately in the range of the brain's alpha rhythm, while excluding the ranges of theta and low beta. The high frequency signal is also random and rides on the low frequency signal, which happens to be unpredictable to the body tissue. It is therefore very penetrating and more effective in regards to breaking up energy blockages and stagnation, increasing circulation, moving the lymph, and changing the cellular memory pattern versus other forms of single frequency magnetic or electric stimulation.
Shortly after the cultural revolution in China during the late 60's and early 70's, several highly skilled Qigong healers were tested in order to record the frequencies they were emitting. What was discovered was that all the Qigong healers that were tested emitted frequencies in the infrasonic range (under 20Hz). The interesting thing noticed was that the amplitude and frequency was always changing, and never repeated any sort of pattern.
Using electroencephalograph (EEG), it was shown that the emitted Qi from Qigong masters has a strong effect on human central nervous system (CNS), and that the Qigong Infratonic device produces a similar effect. Also found were similar changes in the brains of the Qigong masters during meditation. Thus, the results show that the emitted Qi from Qigong masters and from the Infratonic device have a pronounced and repeatable effect on EEG, enhancing frontal and occipital EEG power spectra, and often enhancing the frontal lobe so much that the frontal lobe becomes the dominant alpha EEG activity. Moreover, the brain alpha frequency synchronizes with the emitted Qi from Qigong masters, and the Qi from the Infratonic device. The results indicate that the infrasound frequency produced by the Infratonic device has a similar effect to the emitted Qi from Qigong masters on humans CNS.
Since that time, the understanding of the human energy field and the technology that can emulate it has advanced significantly. The Chi Infratonic is the most sophisticated and up to date algorithm of any of its predecessors, and with high quality components compared to poorly made knock off devices.
No machine can replace the feel, complexity, or connection of a person. However, the benefits of this technology for people is vast, and for someone to treat themselves daily with consistency in an affordable way carries a lot of value.
Benefits of the Chi Infratonic include:
- Reduce physical pain and inflammation
- Vitalize sub-cellular healing
- Relax tight muscles
- Boost immunity
- Minimize anxiety
- Enhance local circulation
- Increase hyaluronic acid production
- Breakup and dissolve cellular memory of trauma
- Brings about a large increase of coherent alpha brain waves
Importance of Hyaluronic Acid (HA)
Most people who are familiar with hyaluronic acid understand its benefits in regards to creating healthier and more supple skin, speeding wound healing, lubrication of joints, and preservation of bone strength.
Many people don't realize that HA has a profound effect on the body at the cell level.
HA is capable of binding aqueous ions and creating ionic barriers to electrical currents. It can also release high concentrations of free ions to provide electrical pathways. In his book "Measurements of Ki Energy, Diagnoses and Treatments", Hiroshi Motoyama, PhD, presented that hyaluronic acid, with its ability to selectively bind and release ions (like NA+, K+, CA2+, Cl-, MG2+), controls the diffusion of many metabolites through the ground substance, and is able to create a dielectric in the dermal layer, determining its electrical characteristic.
Viewed another way, since hyaluronic acid is the main component of the ground substance, the material through which all metabolites to and from the cell must pass, functional changes in the state of the HA (average molecular weight, concentration, etc.) will necessarily result in changes in the distribution of many metabolites and ions in the ground substance. What this means is that HA affects the the coherence of the cell wall, and may be the principal active chemical in the formation of meridians, which are highly conductive pathways in the body. These are measurable at the surface of the body, but cannot be discovered through surgery.
The Chi Infratonic has been shown in clinical research to increase hyaluronic acid and reduce inflammation.
Dissolving trauma and emotional healing
The inner workings of the cells are programmed, and how information is passed along is a very complex process.
What impedes healing? Why would cells that are functioning optimally all of a sudden start sending different signals?
Although it is not completely understood, there are some factors that can contribute to this process.
Cells, like people, may simply continue to do day to day what they did yesterday, because it worked yesterday. If a cell incurs traumatic stress or cellular trauma, that shock can throw a person off balance and the cells will continue to act in that same way.
If someone smashed their elbow and it took months to recover, they continually (consciously and unconsciously) try to avoid hitting their elbow on doors or counters as they go about their day. This daily hypersensitivity to protect their elbow changed their physical structure so they were carrying abnormal amounts of tension in their shoulder, neck and wrist as a defense mechanism for the injured elbow. Months later, well after the elbow has healed, the person is still walking and holding tension in the body in the same way, even after the injury is gone and fully healed.
In this same way, the body can experience cellular programming from traumatic injury, chemical shock, fear, feelings of failure, infection, poisons, or pharmaceuticals. The cells continue producing an inflammation response to these signals, instead of hyaluronic acid production.
Traumatic cellular programming may be a contributing mechanism for many cases of chronic inflammation and pain.
Anxiety, fear, chronic stress, and repetitious negative mental patterns sometimes remain confined in the brain, however the shock from traumatic injury and fear of death can sweep through and dominate every cell in the body.
Infratonic therapy infuses the cells with chaotic alpha activity, attenuating this programming and reducing the anxiety at the cellular level. It helps to break up stagnant energy and repetitive patterns of cellular stress.

Vibrational Trembling, Chaos, and EEG
Dale M. Patterson, MS, CACB, BCIA Certified
Richard H. Lee, China Healthways Institute, USA
Vibrational trembling appears to be a way memory is stored or processed in the physical body. Chaotic sound penetrates this field of vibrational activity, softening this memory and allowing us to more easily let go of fixated thoughts, addictive desires, and compulsive actions.
When someone is full of anger at being blocked from acquiring the object of desire, he may tremble extensively in the theta range of EEG. And when someone is overloaded with the stress of excess thinking (worry) and approaching a nervous breakdown, he will also tremble, but this time in the beta range. This excess vibrational activity consumes the body's Qi and causes the person to become emotionally, mentally, and physically rigid.
Applying chaotic sound breaks up these repeating patterns, often freeing the patient from frustration and worry. As the patient relaxes, capacity to process thoughts and emotions increases, new answers are found, and the increased freedom and flexibility are experienced as increased vitality. Thus, where physical memory inhibits healing, adding a chaotic alpha signal can accelerate recovery.
Dale Patterson, a board certified EEG technician trained in biofeedback, became intrigued with the I9 when one of his patients brought one in. He recorded EEG brain maps first with an early model of the QGM (the newest and most advanced version being the model on this page) which produced a clinically significant 18% increase in Alpha. He then used the Q4 with chaos which provided eight times the increase in alpha activity, showing that chaos increases induction of alpha rhythm in the EEG.
How to use your Chi Palm
There are many different ways to use your Infratonic, but we recommend the following methods to simplify the process.
Blood Cleansing Qigong style - Hold your Chi Palm on the balance setting at a 45 degree angle towards your body and down. Start with your left shoulder and sweep down your right arm followed by your left leg to your foot. Then start at your right foot up to your right hip, then from your right hand up to your right shoulder. This is one set. Start with the unit as close to your body as you feel comfortable, and with each set move the device further away from your body (the vibrations will affect your electromagnetic field in a different way at a distance). This is an excellent daily practice to do first thing in the morning and before bed. Perform 3-5 sets at a slow smooth pace.
Pain Chasing- If you have pain in your body, use the balance or acute setting and place the Infratonic on the point of pain. Often as the pain is broken up, it can be connected to other parts of the body, so you may feel the sensation move from point to point in the body. Use the Infratonic to follow the sensation around the body until the pain subsides. You may use it as often as needed.
Below is a basic chart of acupressure points that you may work on.
Relaxation, Sleep, Meditation, Immune Building- Lay flat on your back and place the Infratonic on your thymus gland (around point number 2 above). This will stimulate your immune system and help calm your nerves. You can use the balance or deep calm setting.
You can fall asleep with your device on your chest or under your pillow, but make sure to use the deep calm setting if attempting this. You can get 30 hours to a single charge on this device, so it is great for power naps and on road trips.

We’ve had our Infratonic for about a month. I will admit to being a skeptic but my husband has always had an innate research based curiosity about things like this. He’s a veterinary epidemiologist by profession and has seen many alternative modes of treatment work in the field of vet medicine that mainstream human med. never explore.
The one thing I’ve noticed is we’ve taken it to bed and I’m sleeping quite well these days, waking up more relaxed and rested than before. I’m using it for another issue as well but can’t comment on its effectiveness yet since I’ve not been using it long.
I would suggest doing your research to see if this would be right for you. It will mean moving into an alternative medicine realm. I have come to believe our bodies are designed to heal themselves given the right support. For us this is a good addition to dietary changes, exercise and setting aside time to contemplate life as it is and as it should be.
