On the latest episode of the Dherbs Adventures of V-Man series, our content writer, Vinnie, visited Transformational Healing Universe in West Los Angeles, CA. This was our most in depth therapeutic experience to date, and we experienced about six or seven different therapies during our visit. Instead of cramming everything into one video and article, we decided to break it up into two videos and accompanying articles.
About Transformational Healing Universe:
There is a collection of practitioners at Transformational Healing Universe, and they all have a united goal of empowering clients to heal themselves. Dr. Har Hari Khalsa, DC, offers various healing modalities that address different ailments or conditions. He uses traditional chiropractic, ancient arts, meditation, light therapy, PEMF therapy, the BioCharger, and more to address underlying health conditions.
During our visit, Dr. Khalsa invited Vinnie to participate in a series of healing modalities, but this article focuses on two of them: light therapy and PEMF therapy. Below is Vinnie’s account of these two therapies.
Before I even begin to describe either therapy, I have to address the amazing character that is Dr. Khalsa. This is a man who has devoted his life to studying various healing modalities, and he’s accrued some amazing gadgets that enhance bodily health over the years. When we started talking, I noticed how vibrant and expressive he was. He seemed giddy about everything we were going to do, as though he was getting ready to experience these therapies for the first time.
This was the very first therapy we did and it was a crazy and wild way to start the day. I followed Dr. Khalsa into the light therapy room and saw a single bed that had a wooden cage around it. Plastic tubing was woven through the wooden frame. He called it The Chamber. He explained that the bed vibrated intensely to help relax the body. The vibration supposedly enhances the relaxation, and you also listen to calming, ambient music that goes along with the visuals. Oh, did I forget to mention that he compared this therapy to hallucinogenic drugs? Sorry, my bad. This is because of the PandoraStar, which is an advanced LED light machine that helps people achieve deep trance, stress-free states in a matter of minutes.
Dr. Khalsa explained that the light guides the mind into a hypnagogic state, essentially simulating a deep state of meditation. This helps you turn off the outside world, similar to a sensory depravation tank. When you can disconnect from everything, you can have a transformative and meditative experience. According to Dr. Khalsa, this has incredible antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects on the body.
Going Under The Light:
I lay down on the bed, put the headphones on, and positioned myself under the PandoraStar. Dr. Khalsa instructed me to close my eyes and then he played the music and turned on the light. At first, everything went orange and the low vibration of the bed paired with the deep tones in the headphones. The music and vibration crescendoed into a big expansive blast of music, and that’s when the visuals started. I didn’t go on a vision quest with a shaman or anything like that, but it did feel like I was in a kaleidoscope. The vibrantly colored fractal patterns seemed to move with the sounds I heard, and they intensified if the bed vibrated quickly. It almost felt like I should’ve been listening to the Grateful Dead or Pink Floyd. It was pretty far out, man.
After 15 minutes, everything went blue, the music faded out, and the bed stopped vibrating. I opened my eyes and exited The Chamber. It felt like I was in a mild daze, as though I had just arisen from a deep and relaxing slumber. I asked Dr. Khalsa why I saw such intense patterns, and he said that the electromagnetic activity in the brain follows the light frequencies that the PandoraStar projects on the face. This leads to increased endorphin production and a drastic reduction in stress.
PEMF stands for pulsed electromagnetic field, and any device that uses PEMF technology emits electromagnetic waves. The primary benefit of this therapy is that those electromagnetic waves stimulate and encourage the body’s ability to heal itself. Dr. Khalsa told us about numerous patients who experienced incredible recovery from a variety of conditions using PEMF therapy. One important clarification is that the therapy is more effective if you address the health condition in its early stages. For instance, he said a woman with early onset Alzheimer’s disease was able to dramatically improve her cognition with PEMF therapy.
Most people are familiar with the adhesive patches that hook up to a device that sends electrical currents. The muscles tingle or twitch, depending on the intensity of the current. Dr. Khalsa had a bed with a switchboard next to it that controlled the electromagnetic waves. It looked like something out of the Star Wars movies. He instructed me to lie down on the bed and said that he would charge the bed to the same electromagnetic waves that the earth emits. If you don’t know what I mean by this, you can walk barefoot on the ground (sand, dirt, or grass) and be charged by the earth’s energy.
How It Felt To Get Charged:
When he cranked up those electromagnetic waves, it felt like every cell in my body was activated. I later found out that PEMF therapy helps to magnetically charge cell membranes, which can deteriorate over time. It was almost like I was glued to the table and my body pulsed with each passing second. I wasn’t getting electrocuted or anything, so don’t worry about that. Dr. Khalsa actually enhanced the therapy by placing a pad on top of stomach, sandwiching the electromagnetic waves between my torso. I can only equate it to the feeling of holding in your urine when you really have to go, even though I didn’t have to pee. Ultimately, it was very energizing and I left that therapy with a renewed energy.
That’s not all we did at Transformational Healing Universe, but the other two therapies we did will be in the next article.
