Sound Therapy, also referred to as vibrational therapy, uses weighted and un-weighted tuning forks that produce distinct sound frequencies matching those of our planet, Earth. The tuning fork is struck to begin its vibration and then applied directly to various locations on the body. These vibrations travel along our energy pathways, go deeply into the body, and reach places not easily accessible by other means.
Using tuning forks in this manner makes use of the vibratory energy created through sound to work with our body’s energies, assisting our innate ability to heal.
What Happens During a Sound Therapy Session with Tuning Forks?
The sound vibration of the Earth tone “Ohm” and its overtones reach the deepest parts of the body through the resonant chambers of the ears and through bone, which are both excellent resonators because of their hollow structure and high-water content. Each person’s body will create different overtones based on their physical and energetic make-up, overall health and individual needs at the time.
Applying the forks stimulates and balances the body’s physical and subtle energy field to promote healing and inner harmony.
How Does Sound Therapy Work?
Tuning forks do not heal one’s body, mind or spirit. Tuning forks create a balance in our vibrational system that enables the body to do the healing. If a surgeon operates on a broken bone, it is not the surgeon who heals the bone. He or she has created a physical change in the body that gives it something needed so that the body can heal the bone. And so it is with sound therapy using tuning forks. The vibration of the tuning forks travels deeply into the body and the body’s own wisdom makes use of these vibrations.
When Vibrational Balance Is Restored:
- Physical states improve – pain decreases or ceases completely, body feels more relaxed
- Emotional states improve – anxiety, anger, sadness, fear decreased or released completely – mood and outlook improve
- Mental clarity improves – less mind chatter, more peace
What Can You Expect From A Tuning Fork Session?
Most clients describe their experience as deeply comforting and relaxing. Many experienced a reduction or complete cessation of physical pain. Others made comments such as ‘It felt like I went somewhere’, indicating that they may have been in a meditative state. Some people fall asleep during the session and awaken feeling refreshed and renewed. All experiences seem to be unique to the individual and determined by what they may need at the time.
