How to Restore Inner Balance and Health with Tuning Fork Therapy

Illness indicates that something in your body is off and needs to be fixed, much like an out-of-tune piano. It doesn’t function the way it’s supposed to. I’ll let you in on some good news, though. Ever heard of tuning fork therapy for healing? Tuning fork therapy promotes self-healing by restoring your body to a healthy vibrational state. Over time, this gives you more freedom, a better quality of life, and joy in every aspect of your life.

What is a tuning fork?

A tuning fork is a two-pronged steel instrument used as an acoustic resonator. John Shore, London-born trumpeter and lute player, invented it in 1711. Since it produces a fixed musical pitch when struck, it serves as a standard for tuning musical instruments. After a while, its use has expanded to include non-musical functions.

In the 1960s, an English osteopath Sir Peter Guy Manners developed the tuning fork therapy. He believed that sound vibrations could heal various ailments, including arthritis, bacterial infections, and chronic inflammation. 

Today, tuning forks come in a variety of frequencies, from 64 Hz to 4096 Hz. The most widely used frequency for sound therapy is the 128 Hz tuning fork. Depending on your needs, the appropriate tuning fork is struck and held by the base. What makes forks therapeutic is knowing what forks to use and how to use them properly.

How do tuning forks work?

Tuning fork therapy is founded on the principle that everything in the cosmos is made of vibration. Since our bodies are mostly water, sound travels through them four times faster than in air. This makes our bodies fantastic sound resonators.

When a tuning fork is struck, the tines vibrate several hundred times per second, creating waves that send strong vibrations through the air. The stem is placed into various body areas while it vibrates, such as on acupoints, reflex points, and muscles. The bones and the tissues close to the placement spot will feel the vibrations. 

The sound waves travel deeply along the energy pathways. These vibrations can aid in developing new balancing patterns and displace harmful ones. The vibrational shift can begin at the cellular level, helping your body return to its natural harmony.

You can try using tuning forks on your own. However, for best outcomes, we advise consulting a trained tuning fork practitioner, particularly if you are experiencing symptoms caused by:

  • Fatigue
  • Chronic stress
  • Chronic pain
  • Digestive issues
  • Insomnia
  • Migraines
  • And a lot more…
