"Tuning Fork Therapy® involves the use of a variety of different tuning forks in a typical session. A tuning fork is a metal object that has one handle and two tines. The two tines vibrate when they are struck against another object creating sound waves. It is these sound waves that are used to affect the many systems of the physical body. Science has proven that everything in the universe is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies or "notes". All things in nature vibrate to sound, light and color. Science also tells us that sound waves need matter through which to travel. Matter can be anything including air, water, metals, even a wall.
We use this knowledge of sound passing through objects and apply them to the use of Tuning Forks on our own bodies. Sound waves pass through the skin, organs, tissues, right down to the very cells of our bodies. The development of Tuning Fork Therapy® is based on the understanding that sound waves pass through the body and they elicit responses within the body's systems. These systems react to the sound waves and vibrations created and use them to restore to a healthier and more harmonic base."
- Francine Milford, Tuning Fork Therapy®
On a massage table, chair or floor, clients are fully clothed during a session. A Vibrational Sound Session is non-intrusive, there are no needles, no pain or manipulation involved. Additionally, a sound session can include tuning Forks singing bowls, voice/toning, Tingsha cymbals, bells, drumbeats and/or rainstick. It is not uncommon to experience some re-balancing symptoms after a first session. Water, rest and a 20 minute feet-soak or full-body soak with Epsom, Sea or Himalayan salt are encouraged to flush, relax, ease and neutralize any effects. I will provide further information about this at your initial visit.
Some Science behind the Vibrational Sound Session
The human body, also, is made up of approximately 70% water. Sound travels four times faster in water than in air so this alone makes the human body a natural resonator for sound.
Each of the organs, glands, and cells in our bodies carries its own normal vibration and always remembers it. Tuning forks bring a chiming sound to your ears but also bring a vibration that can be felt in the bones and body. Our nerves are stimulated when we listen to the vibrations of tuning forks.
A study in the 1970's proposed that when one tone is played to one ear, and a different tone is played to the other, the two hemispheres of the brain connect and create a third (internal) tone called a binaural beat. This is said to synchronize the brain, providing clarity, calmness, and faster communication between the mind and the body. Within 30 seconds you can achieve a state of deep relaxation, which might take you 45 minutes to reach through meditation.
