Esogetic Colorpuncture is an information medicine. The basic premise of this healing system is that illness and pain gradually develop in the body when the healthy flow of information is blocked or distorted in some way. This includes both the information flowing from the subtle realms of spirit and soul or subconscious, as well as the information that is exchanged, moment to moment, between all the cells in our bodies.
The primary treatment medium used in Esogetics is light. Colored light frequencies convey information signals which, when systematically applied to points on the skin, relay corrective and healing information into the body. Another type of information that is regularly used in Esogetics involves the frequencies of brain waves. Brain rhythms, produced by the neurons of the brain, also serve as information signals that influence the functioning of both body and mind. Over the years, Esogetic Colorpuncture originator, Peter Mandel, has developed unique and highly effective methods for using these frequencies in his treatments.
To explain, starting in the late 1800’s, with the invention of electroencephalography (EEG), neuroscientists were able to observe that the brain’s neurons regularly fire in specific patterns which cause oscillations or rhythms These rhythms modulate and control a great many bodily functions. Over time, five different brain rhythms have been identified, each classified by a specific frequency range: delta (.5 – 4 Hz), theta (4-8 Hz), alpha (8 – 12 Hz), beta (12 – 30 Hz) and gamma (30+ Hz). Neuroscientists now understand that these brain rhythms are each associated with different states of consciousness in human beings. Delta is associated with deep sleep or non REM sleep; theta is associated with REM or dream sleep, alpha is associated with relaxed mental states of awareness, as well as the more awake phases of REM sleep, and beta is associated with normal awake states and active concentration. The more recently discovered gamma rhythm is associated with states of heightened consciousness and meditation. Normally, in good health, we experience the dominance of each different brain rhythm at different times throughout the daily 24 hour cycle.
Early in his career, Mandel observed that every adverse change in our cells, organs and systems seems to be preceded by a regulatory disturbance of these brain rhythms. In fact, it appeared that any irregularity in human consciousness and physical health had consequences for the brain rhythms and vice versa. This led Mandel to ponder whether brain wave frequencies, like the frequencies of light and color, could be used to send regulatory signals into the body to improve bodymind health.
Biofeedback researchers had already begun studying the effects of inducing certain brain wave states in subjects back in the 1960’s. In this research, specific brain wave states were induced and subjects were gradually trained to influence their own brain wave states in order to enhance greater consciousness and gain conscious regulating control over certain bodily systems. Like Mandel, these researchers also observed a mutual interaction between states of consciousness, brain currents and the cells of the body. Biofeedback remains a popular alternative therapy today. Most of this work focuses on inducing particular brain rhythm states, notably theta and alpha states. And the induction of these states typically relies upon on auditory or visual stimuli.
Mandel became interested in developing more specific induction therapies that did not generate side effects and at the same time, adapted as closely as possible to the natural body and brain activity – an induction of familiar impulses. In so doing, he discovered that it was possible to regulate brain rhythms via the skin without auditory or visual stimulation. When specific sequences or patterns of brain waves are introduced into the body via the skin, they convey regulating information for both body and mind. In order to ensure that his induction therapies would not cause changes in the brain itself, Mandel actually conducted EEG studies to track their effects. The studies showed that when these induction impulses were introduced via the skin, there were no observable changes in EEG frequencies. Therefore, Mandel concluded that:
“I do not treat the brain, I treat the body like a healthy brain would.”
Over time, two methods for using the information of brain waves in Esogetic therapies have been developed in Esogetics. In the first, a tool called the Point Synapsis is used to send 30 second brain wave impulses into specific acu-points on the skin. After that, colored light frequencies are applied to those same points. The use of brain waves, followed by light frequencies, allows certain Esogetic treatments to go deeper and be more effective at the cellular level.
The second Esogetic method of sending brain wave signals into the body involved the development of specific “induction programs.” Each of these programs consist of a specific patterning of brain rhythms and they are designed to address a variety of symptoms and psychological issues. Using tools called the Home Synapsis 2 or the Wave Synapsis 2, specific induction or biofeedback programs are administered via the skin. The programs (now 27 in all) last anywhere from 15 to 40 minutes. They can be used effectively in a clinical setting or for home-care. Each program gently guides the bodymind back to improved health.

In closing, I want to say that the Esogetic use of brain wave/biofeedback tools for the regulation of well-being is a unique and highly effective aspect of the system of Esogetic Medicine. Once again, Peter Mandel has found a most remarkable way to talk to the body and provide it with new information for healing.
