Tuning Forks and Singing Bowls

What is sound healing with tuning forks and singing bowls?

Science has shown that sound vibration has an impact on matter and all matter vibrates at specific frequencies. By pairing tuning forks and/or singing bowls, one creates an interval, each interval with its own frequency. These frequencies have a quality and effect on the body. For example, some are generative, others more dispersing, some are warming while others are cooling. By using the sound intervals on the meridians and acupuncture points we stimulate the function of the points and further direct the energy by using a frequency that will have the desired effect.

Tuning forks are ‘activated’ by tapping them on a hard rubber surface appropriately called an activator in order to create different ringing sounds or frequencies. The forks are used in various combinations to achieve the desired effects. Singing bowls can be made of pure quartz crystal, or of metal, and they singwhen played with a striker, or a wooden mallet, releasing a bell-like sound. All sound is created by vibration in the ear being translated into electrical information and passed to the brain. Sound healing is using this same principle on the body; we use vibration to activate the body’s own healing mechanisms. Tuning forks are often used for more targeted points while singing bowls are used for broader applications.

What are the benefits of this treatment?

Probably the most enjoyable benefit is one of deep relaxation and a sense of inner peace and tranquility. People often ‘fall asleep’ however it is actually moving into a deeper level of consciousness where healing takes place.

Sound healing can address all of the same imbalances that traditional acupuncture can treat. Patient preference and presenting symptoms guide the specific tools used in any treatment.

What can I expect in a sound healing session?

This is one of the more profoundly relaxing treatments you will experience. During these sessions, sound energy is used to move the Qi (life force energy) of the body through the meridians by way of specific acupuncture points. You will experience immediate effects, usually both relaxed and energized. The frequencies created by these sound healing tools permeate and dissolve tightness, pain and discomfort.
