TUNING FORKS & ENERGY HEALING
Sound Therapy with tuning forks focuses on restoring the correct resonant frequency to the part of the body that is vibrating out of harmony with the rest of the body. There are many different frequencies throughout our body that allows it to be in a constant state of vibration. Sound frequencies affect everything, including the ability to rearrange the molecules of our cellular structure.
By creating sound and vibration through the use of tuning forks, one is able to change the inner tuning of the nervous system. The resonance creates a vortex of sound that leads us into a point of stillness. Stillness is a moment when we can retune ourselves and shift our frequencies to produce a healthier and calmer state of being.
Our nervous system vibrates to the sound of tuning forks, thereby resulting in a very viable alternative healing modality. The specific pitches, sounds and vibrations heal and balance our bodies and help to relieve stress, relieve pain, and bring about homeostasis within the emotional, spiritual and physical realms. Tuning forks are used to treat everyone from children to adults and even pets.
We have been familiar with harmonic tuning forks from our youth and in school science projects or when the piano tuner would come to tune the piano. These tuning forks vibrate and resonate an audible sound. The other osteophonic tuning forks, aka Otto, which means to vibrate bone, are specially designed with weights placed on the prongs. The weights create a stronger vibration, which is transferred through the tuning fork stem directly into tissue. These forks also create pure sound, but cannot be tapped together to create overtones. The Otto tuning forks are a perfect alternative to receiving acupuncture for anyone who may be needle phobic.
Fibonacci Tuning Forks are another set of tuning forks, which work with balancing the nervous system and altered states of consciousness to increase creativity and help in healing trauma and addictions.
Every individual has their own specific frequency that is harmonious for their body. Even our organs and cells in our body vibrate at their own specific frequency. Think of yourself as a living symphony of frequencies. These frequencies correspond with musical notes. It is said that a healthy heart vibrates at the frequency of the F note. When your body is in good health and all parts are vibrating to the correct note, at the correct tempo, and vibrating in harmony, your body is like an orchestra playing beautiful music. On the other hand, although we may not be able to hear the bodies unharmonious sounds, the body will display symptoms that let us know when something is wrong and it needs to be brought back in tune.
When the tuning fork is placed next to the organ or chakra that is out of harmony, that area will raise its vibration or “pitch” to that of the fork by the process of entrainment. Tuning forks are able to correct the body’s optimum rate of vibration with sound waves.
A tuning fork treatment is non-intrusive. Sound passes through your body as every cell pulsates, resonates and interacts with the powerful vibrations, thus awakening the life energy of the cells and returning you to health and harmony.
Energy healing medicine is based on the principle that everyone’s thoughts, emotions, beliefs, and attitudes involve energy. When you experience a physical, emotional or spiritual trauma, the energy gets disrupted, depleted or blocked.
Healing is a process, which restores the body, mind, and spirit to a balanced and harmonious state of health. Homeostasis maintains that equilibrium and acts as the automatic self-monitoring and regulating system for the body’s well being, regardless of internal and external environmental changes.
The myth that body and mind are connected has been disproved. It is impossible to separate the body, mind and soul of a human being in the healing process.
The science behind mind-body medicine has been extensively researched by Candace B. Pert, PhD.-author of Molecules of Emotion – in which she documents this paradigm shift, “the homeostasis control center resides in the brain. The mind doesn’t dominate the body, it becomes the body—the body and mind are one. The body is the actual outward manifestation in physical space of the mind”.
Given the right environment, our bodies are capable of self-healing. Effective meditation techniques are available utilizing sound healing and/or guided imagery, which accelerate the desired state of brainwave entrainment. Many authorities in the field of health acknowledge that the body heals itself most effectively in a state of deep relaxation or Theta state of consciousness which is a frequency of 4 – 7 Hz. Similarly, the natural state of planet Earth resonates at a Theta frequency of 7.83 Hz, known as Schumann Resonance.
Theta is the state we are in before we enter into a deep sleep (i.e. the twilight phase). Aside from being associated with sleep, it is also most common during deep relaxation, meditation, dreaming, and hypnosis. This state is also evident as we transition from a deep sleep into waking consciousness. Theta also enables us to access the wisdom of our unconscious mind, typically not accessible in more alert states.
Another desired effect of the Theta state is improved intuition which enables us to be more sensitive to our gut reactions. It is a portal to learning and memory providing the ability to retrieve memories buried in our subconscious mind. Emotions that may be blocked or suppressed can be accessed and stimulated in the Theta state. In some cases, experiences of deep spiritual connection, awareness, and insight have been recorded.
