A Dictionary of Alternative-Medicine Methods
"The science of wave phenomena"; an alleged means of restoring health advanced by Sir Peter Guy Manners, M.D., D.O., Ph.D. (see "cymatic therapy"). Its postulate is that life is sound, and illness is any deviation in its "pattern." Apparently, the word "Cymatics" refers to both cymatic therapy and the "science" behind it.

Cymatics, from , meaning "wave", is a subset of modal vibrational phenomena. The term was coined by Hans Jenny (1904-1972), a Swiss follower of the philosophical school known as anthroposophy. Typically the surface of a plate, diaphragm or membrane is vibrated, and regions of maximum and minimum displacement are made visible in a thin coating of particles, paste or liquid. Different patterns emerge in the excitatory medium depending on the geometry of the plate and the driving frequency.
