Tuning forks aren't new to the world. They’re commonly used to tune musical instruments but in the 20th century it was discovered they could positively affect our bodies and they became a part of alternative holistic healing.
The vibration and sound that the tuning fork makes helps to balance the body’s energy. It reduces tension and promotes emotional harmony. It works in a similar way to acupuncture but instead of needles, sound frequencies are used to stimulate points in the body.
The increase in energy flow created by using the tuning forks improves circulation and removes blocked energy in the body. The removal of the blocks help to …
There are two types of tuning forks -- weighted and unweighted. In Life Changing Energy, we carry rainbow colored weighted tuning forks.
These are tuning forks that have weights at the end of each prong.
You can use them directly in the area of the body that you want to treat. They generate stronger and deeper vibrations than unweighted forks.
An English osteopath named Sir Peter Guy Manners is considered the father of sound therapy and this is where tuning fork therapy came about.
In the 1960s, his work on the use of sound frequencies that were being used in the treatment of various diseases.
In Senses & Sciences journal it says that in the 1960s, Manners found that sound therapy could be used to treat many diseases – sound therapy and tuning forks stimulated the human body’s ability to heal itself.
Tuning forks were then applied to muscles and bones.
After striking a tuning fork, a tone is produced. By slowly moving the tuning fork over someone’s aura or space around them, it can offer healing properties, especially when used with each chakra. The ends can be put directly on the body, with or without a healing crystal associated with a chakra.
Tuning forks are made in such a way that they generate a pure sound, with a specific amount of vibrations every second.
AND what’s really great is that you don’t always have to go to a professional or alternative practitioner to be treated with tuning forks. They’re very simple to use.
It's important to get a full set of chakra body tuning forks because, in general, when one chakra is off, the others are out of balance too. If one chakra is blocked, the ones that are open try to compensate for the imbalance.
The seven basic chakras of the body are circular vortexes of energy that are found in seven points along the body.
All the seven chakras are linked to various glands and organs in the body.
To enable chakra healing with the use of tuning forks, it’s good to know what each of the seven chakras requires when it comes to healing sound.
The frequencies are measured in hertz (Hz). As the Pure Integrated Health Services Foundation reports, here are the frequencies commonly used to stimulate the different chakras and what it helps, in general:
Note: It’s easier to use the tuning forks on the chakras while you are lying down, but it’s not required.
Sound therapy is said to restore the chakra balance and help the energy to move better throughout the body.
The tuning forks in Life Changing Energy store are made with aluminum. While there are also steel tuning forks, aluminum has the potential to ring overtones, which are hidden sounds in music.
Dr. John Beaulieu, philosopher, and innovator in sound healing therapy, says in an article published on Omnivos Therapeutics that overtones are important because they stimulate the “neural net through tactile stimulations and auditory nerve conduction.”
What this really means is that overtones have a massage-like effect because it produces more pulsations. That travels through the body and creates structural and physiological healing.
Tuning forks have been found to ...
Sound healing is possible because our bodies are not solid and is mostly made up of water, which conducts sound four times faster. Just think of how you feel the beat of music inside you when you go to a concert. Everything in the universe is made of vibration.
Our bodies are rhythmic (just think of the circadian rhythm that monitors our bodies over 24 hour periods) and we instinctively know how we feel when that’s out of whack.
Many issues, problems, diseases can be traced back to something in our body that is out of tune or has lost its vibrational rhythm. That’s why tuning forks work so well. They help us to synchronize with natural cycles, which then enables us to find our balance and homeostasis. Homeostasis is fundamental to healing the physical body, mind and spirit.
Interestingly enough, facials are being given with tuning forks. They are used to vibrate in order rejuvenate the skin. This is a use of tuning forks that you might want a practitioner for and not try on yourself. It’s especially great for people who carry tension and stress in their facial muscles and you can target the chin and jowls.
As Coveteur reports, the vibrations can relax muscles and increase the body’s lymphatic drainage.
There is so much more that could be said about the practice and use of tuning forks. You’ll find how to best use them for your body and situation as you use them more and more. It could be the missing piece to your overall well-being in body, mind, and spirit.
