“The more we use David Ison’s music, the more we are convinced of its clinical effectiveness.”
The Ison Method™ resulted from David Ison’s own healing experience after a serious car accident left him unable to walk. Not wanting to rely on surgery and medication, he drew upon his expertise as a musician, longtime meditator, and an energy practitioner to explore how sound, breath, and meditation could help him heal, and eventually enjoyed a full recovery. Along the way he learned powerful lessons about how to tap into his own life force energy, sometimes referred to as qi or prana, to facilitate healing on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. He later refined these techniques into a unique program of transformational healing music with special meditation, breathing, and listening techniques that can help anyone connect to their own wellspring of healing potential and unlock the life-force within.
David continues to explore the effectiveness of sound and music, creating new compositions with his longtime collaborator Paul Wegmann. David regularly lectures and conducts training workshops on The Ison Method™ at conferences and medical centers around the country.
