Mandara Cromwell is the Founder and Board President of ISTA (The International Sound Therapy Association), producer of Cymatics – The Science of Sound and Vibrational Healing Annual Conference, CEO and President of Cyma Technologies, Inc., and 2013 Nominee for the Thomas Edison Award for Innovation in the fields on Science and Medicine for the AMI 750.
Cromwell brought more than 40 years of research based on the work of Dr. Peter Guy Manners to the USA from England in 2001. Since that time, she has created and manufactured innovative technology to support people in both better health and catastrophic illness. Cyma Technologies manufactures advanced sound technology products and provides an educational curriculum for sound therapy careers in Cyma Therapy.
In 2005, Cromwell founded ISTA, a 501c (3), nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing the public’s awareness of the power of sound in our environment and its healing effects. ISTA promotes and provides education for therapeutic sound modalities.
In addition to educational and community outreach arms, ISTA maintains a medical research board for data collection proving the efficacy of sound therapies. ISTA invites all sound therapy practitioners to submit case studies validating the efficacy of their sound modality. The ISTA research database serves as a bridge to western medicine and gives medical professionals the confidence they need to refer their patients to qualified sound therapists.
Cromwell lectures on behalf of ISTA and throughout the world. She was recently invited by the Indian Cultural Ministry to present the “Art of Sacred Sound” at the Sacred Arts Symposium in New Delhi, India. For more information, review the links below:
