Toronto chiropractor Scott Levine launches a new kind of feel-good room at this year’s Future Festival
Dr. Scott Levine has never forgotten the mystical Friday nights he spent as a teen, staring up at the domed, starlit ceiling of Toronto’s McLaughlin Planetarium as colored lights danced to the synthesized rhythms of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon.
“It was transportative,” he recalls, of the communal, state-of-the-art, laser-light show that was all the rage in the early Eighties—“spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically uplifting.”
Nearly four decades later—more than half of that spent as a chiropractor on a mission to heal the world, one spine at a time—he understands why that past experience was so striking.
“Ancient wisdom—and science–have proven that light, color, and sound have a significant effect on our brain function,” says Levine, 52, an avid student of energetics and quantum physics. “Which can in turn have a healing effect on our bodies. Our sensory systems receive information in the form of vibrations and frequencies. According to Nikola Tesla, ‘if you want to discover the secrets of the universe, think in terms of vibration, frequency and energy.’”
On Tuesday, Levine will introduce a revamped version of his teen memory at Future Festival Toronto—a top-tier, three-day, innovative conference held at The Westin Harbour Castle where “thought leaders” from around the world present workshops and demos on emerging trends and new technologies.
Invited to set-up in a coveted spot near the VIP lounge, Levine will be there from 5-10pm to launch his vision for the future of our health: the Heal Room.
He’s built a 300-square-foot room cloaked in black velvet, to keep out external light. Inside, conference attendees can sample the Heal Room’s tranquil effects by reclining on a gravity-free chair and choosing from a playlist of lights, colors, and sound effects.
“We have living rooms and boardrooms,” Levine points out, “people build gyms and theatres in their homes. Why not Heal Rooms? A new category of room to calm and heal ourselves in the places where we spend most of our time.”
How does it work? “Stress causes the majority of our pain and disease,” he says. The symphony of light, sound, and vibration “calms the brain,” he says.
Don’t expect to hear your favorite, classic rock tunes, though. “The music will be soothing and therapeutic,” he says, “with underlying frequencies and tones your brain will attune to.”
Levine’s Toronto clients have been reaping the benefits of the Heal Room for months already.
“When I have extra time, I go in early for my appointment,” says Toronto celebrity hairstylist, Jason Lee, “so I can fully relax into the colors and music.”
Canadian CEO and philanthropist Charles Hanna, author of “Higher: Awaken to a More Fulfilling Life,” was so impressed with the room’s “calming, regenerative effects” that he’s installing Heal Rooms at his Higher Retreats center in Clarington, Ontario.
Tim Mulcahy, founder of Truestar Health, plans to install one in his Toronto home to combat jet lag after weekly flights back and forth to his home in San Diego.
At Lawrence Park Health Clinic in midtown Toronto, Levine tinkers with rows of stainless steel tuning forks and essential oils lined up against walls bathed in blue and green light.
Tall, lean, and vibrant, he looks a decade younger than his actual age. His eyes are clear and bright and when he leans over to adjust your messed-up, mid-thoracic, he makes use of steely abs any teen athlete would envy.
Levine’s T-shirt and a temporary tattoo on a forearm bear a circular design that looks like a sound waves or a solar system of planets—it’s the symbol for his other innovative healing venture, Zeroone (pronounced: “Zero-one”).
“The tattoo acts as a quantum resonance activation,” Levine explains.
Layman’s translation: It raises vibration levels of both giver and receiver, thereby connecting them—mingling their energies, he says. In today’s divisive era, Levine’s goal is to connect and unify as many of us as possible. He hands the tattoos out to Uber drivers, at parties and festivals, to strangers on the street, and even at a recent Tony Robbins event in Toronto. All told, he figures at least 75,000 free tattoos have gone out, reaching as far as Nova Scotia, Italy, Bali, Amsterdam, and beyond.
“Each time I gift it to someone I’m activating them,” he says.
His clients, like musical icon Randy Bachman, swear by the tattoo’s power.
“The symbol means love,” says the BTO and Guess Who founder, who’s been a client of Levine’s for 15 years.
Bachman wore the Zeroone T-shirt on stage at his CD launch party last year and put the symbol on the back of the album. One of his daughters, he told Levine, lays it on her pillow every night to help her sleep.
“When I wear it, it gives me newfound energy,” says the musician, who popped into the clinic for several sessions in July before reuniting with bandmate Burton Cummings for a charity performance at Toronto’s Casa Loma.
Always the musician, “Randy tries to guess what note he hears when I hold the tuning forks near his ears,” Levine laughs.
His clients know him as more than just a chiropractor and “Love Activator”—as if that wasn’t enough already.
“He’s like a Body Whisperer,” says one patient—a writer who crawled onto his table three years ago with a post deadline neck spasm.
“Without you telling him anything, he picks up your feet, asks your body questions, and ‘listens’ to find the source of your stress—whether it’s a sugar sensitivity or financial problems or you hurt your back playing golf. He listens to your body and it tells him.”
A little out there, maybe. But his clients love it, and he’s dreaming up more creative ways to ease their pain—like adding “PLANTchoir” to the Heal Rooms.
Using Bluetooth technology and biofeedback, a low voltage is sent through a plant to create an electrical current, which is then transmitted and converted into musical notes.
“So four plants together create a band,” he smiles. (If only The Beatles has this for Sgt. Pepper!).
And then there’s Zeroone’s Blessing App, which launches soon. It’s a phone app that works like prayer—“the most used alternative therapy in the world,” says Levine, “but no one’s captured the power of prayer–I call it ‘unified focus’–using technology. Until now.”
It’s another of Levine’s hopeful visions to bring people together—this time, by gathering hundreds, thousands, to offer a one-minute prayer for someone in need.
“Everybody’s got one minute,” he says, “while you wait for your latte or sit on the toilet. Send a prayer. It blesses the recipient and it blesses you. One minute. It’s the Twitter of prayer.”
At this thought, Levine’s eyes widen. He says something about energy, unity and connectedness. Something about our world becoming it’s own healing room—a healing planet.
“Imagine if we had 300,000 people praying for the same thing at the same time. Imagine the power of that,” he says, grabbing a handful of tattoos and stuffing them in his pocket as he leaves the clinic.
“We could shift everything. It could change the fabric of our planet as we know it.”
