Sound Balancing using tuning forks

Vibrational Medicine, Sound Balancing, Harmonic Healing, Sound Bowl Healing, Biofield Tuning--all these multitude of names describe virtually one fact--our bodies have the innate wisdom and ability to self correct any and all dis-ease when presented with a coherent sound/vibrational input.

 What does this mean?  The natural state of our body is coherent light.  Literally perfect health, perfect physiological, mental, emotional, and spiritual functioning.  Our bodies know this.  Our intellect does not.  Seems hard to accept...until you experience it. 

My own observations of this phenomena can be most clearly communicated by writing about my personal experiences utilizing tuning forks on myself.  By no means is this any kind of magic cure all.  It is more like allowing your body to correct any dissonance present, layer by infinite layer.  Can you achieve full healing in one lifetime?  I don't know.  But you sure can participate in the process and receive the transformations that your body is ready for.  Over time, you will deeply know that something powerful is happening.  It is undeniable.  

My experiences with physical pain are many.  On one particularly influential experience of pain, it was a morning like any other.  My alarm went off for the early shift that I was working at a grocery store to supplement my very early massage practice.  My eyes opened, and I realized I could not move.  Searing, shooting pain from my neck was not allowing me to get out of bed.  I had to call out from work with the seemingly stupid excuse that, out of nowhere, I literally could not function.  Going to the toilet was almost unthinkable, it would be so difficult to get there let alone sit down.  Everything was painful--laying, sitting, walking, riding in a car.  Just existing became pain.  It was weeks before I could travel somewhere to get help--and even then, every stop and go in the car or subway was agony.  

This whole ordeal began my long journey away from this pain.  It took me 11 years to recover from this incident.  I would have a flare up every week, then every few weeks, then every month, then every few months.  As I continued to receive help, the flares came less often.  Now they don't show up at all.  Sound as a healing tool was not a part of my life yet.

Just like anyone, I continue to encounter pain.  I have undergone a great deal of structural intervention to bring my physical body into greater balance.  Cranial/Structural releases and myofascial release have brought me physical relief that I almost never dreamed possible.  I am much more curious when my body speaks to me, through its language of pain.  For 11 years, this conversation was a screaming match.  Now it is a dialogue where nothing is right or wrong, it just is.  And now, I have another tool to allow even more solutions to arise from this dialogue: Tuning forks.  

Recently, I experienced a hand injury.  Went to bed one night with some discomfort, woke up with a non-functioning hand.  It took 4 days to regain almost full function of my hand.  4 days, not 11 years.  Then vertigo, for the first time in my life.  Gone in 4 days.  Life changing decisions that I have faced recently--made in one day rather than dwelling on my options for weeks.  I have been receiving tunings regularly for about 2 years now.  I am unable to deny the power of this intervention.  

Am I fully cured from pain?  No.  

Is it easier for my body to transform pain?  Yes.  

Do I feel a more solid connection to my inner knowing?  Yes.  

Is receiving physical and/or electro-magnetic intervention (tuning forks) to guide my body towards more full health an easy path?  No.  

Is this path towards health more fun and easy than taking pills?  Yes.

Are you wondering if you can become aware of your own personal dialogue between your physical body and your electric body (Biofield)?


I am currently utilizing tuning forks - incorporating them into massage and SET sessions - to enhance the effects of these physical treatments in which I specialize. Stand alone Sound Balancing Sessions in person, virtually, and through recorded video are also options that I am honored to provide. It really is possible to build resilience, clear emotional stagnation, and strengthen your energetic landscape using the power of sound and vibrations.

During a Sound Balancing session, the client lies fully clothed on the treatment table while I activate the tuning fork to begin the process of adjusting energetic imbalances.  I am feeling for resistance and turbulence in the client’s biofield, as well as listening for a change in the overtones and undertones of the tuning fork.  When a turbulent area is found, I continue to activate the tuning fork and hold it in that specific spot.  Research has shown that the body’s organizational energy uses the coherent vibrational frequency of the tuning fork to “tune” itself.  As the body and fork work together, the dissonance resolves and the sense of resistance changes.  This transformation corresponds to various outcomes such as the release of tension and/or emotional stagnation, calming the mind, easing the breath, and allowing for an overall feeling of being centered and grounded.

In Tuning the Human Biofield, Eileen McKusik describes Biofield Tuning as "a therapeutic method that makes use of the frequencies produced by tuning forks to detect and correct distortions and imbalances within the biomagnetic energy field, or biofield, that surrounds the human body. Biofield Tuning is based on the Biofield Anatomy Hypothesis, the premise that our biofield--which extends approximately five feet to both sides of the body and three feet above the head and below the feet and is shaped like a torus--contains the record of all of our memories, embedded as energy and information in standing waves within this structure."

From my observations, it is clear that Sound and Structure are two sides of the same coin.  When you sound bad, you feel bad.  When you sound bright, you feel bright.  Are you curious yet?
