Tuning Forks – the most versatile of sound healing instruments

In this post I’d like to tell you a bit about an overlooked sound healing instrument and that is the humble tuning fork. It doesn’t look exciting like a large gong or sexy like white-frosted crystal singing bowls. It doesn’t even have an air of mystery like some Tibetan singing bowls. When I run training courses, students are always a bit apprehensive beforehand but that reaction always turns to joy and amazement when they discover the powerful effects of tuning forks.

A student recently told me, “Tuning forks were one of the great surprises of the sound healing course for me. Before I tried using them, I couldn’t imagine how they might work, but I’ve found them surprisingly powerful.”

Tuning forks really are such versatile sound healing instruments:

  • you can carry them around in your handbag (I do!)
  • you can use them in quiet therapy centre settings where you couldn’t use a loud gong
  • they are light and relatively inexpensive.

They look a bit cold and clinical but when held at the ears, they emit lovely clear tones which instantly entrain your brainwaves. You can sink down into the alpha-theta healing zone or you can use different tones to energise yourself and stimulate a sluggish brain – that could mean waking up your creativity or feeling more mentally alert.

They are helpful for many conditions like:

  • stress and anxiety
  • sleep problems
  • nervous system balance
  • digestive problems and many more.

These are unweighted tuning forks usually played at the ears or in the biofield. I also work with weighted tuning forks which are amazing first aid tools. If you have tight painful muscles, you can use a weighted fork to relax them. If you have a sprain, a strain, bruising or other injury, regular use of a fork will speed up the healing process.You can use a large weighted tuning fork for lymphatic drainage.  A fork placed on the sacrum at the bottom of the spine sends soothing vibrations through the body stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system and the vagus nerve.

There are also tuning forks for chakra balancing tuned to different frequencies. There are tiny angel tuners that you can use the cleanse and recharge your crystals. Brain tuners can take your brainwaves down to delta (a sleep state) or up to beta (our wakened alert state).

The 528 hertz solfeggio tuning fork has been called the love frequency and is reputed to help with DNA repair. I love this fork as it brings me a feeling of peace and safety.
