Abstract (Narrative): Piezoelectricity exists in the human body when stress or mechanical excitation is applied directly to the crystalline structure of bones. It has also been found recently in collagen, cartilage, tendons, teeth, the trachea, intestines, muscle fibres and blood vessels. We have experimented with clinical applications utilising Quartz Crystal and Gemstones to treat various patient conditions and report our finding that the sternum has reflex points acting as a mirror image of the spine. Clinically these reflex points are believed to relate to organ dysfunction or spinal misalignment upon the sternum and are associated with a piezoelectric effect.
Energy Medicine procedures involve assessing any change in strength of the right arm by placing the back of the patient’s left hand to the left of the sacrum and this region is called the Piezoelectric Vital Force Indicator. If weakness is noted of right arm upon left hand placement this indicates the need for the Piezoelectric Resonance Technique. With this positive test, the doctor palpates the six sternal piezoelectric reflex point determining the most sensitive of the points and sometimes there may be more than one point that could be extremely sensitive.
A specifically calibrated quartz crystal may then be utilised in a therapeutic manner. The patient may report a deep sense of tingling, warmth and relaxation.
Post treatment indicators are changes in grip strength and triceps and biceps deep tendon reflexes return to normal. Other clinical symptoms recorded on presentation are re-assessed and are generally ablated.
We conclude that low risk interventions that yield significant patient outcomes while difficult to study may still warrant clinical investigation and use in chiropractic practice when other procedures have proved ineffective. Further research is needed into the Piezoelectric Resonance Technique to determine what subset of patients might be best suited for this method of care and if the outcomes are reliable and consistent.
