Vibrational therapy done with Chakra Tuning Forks
Chakra Tuning forks
create a bridge between Sound and Form or structure. They are material or physical in nature, yet vibrate strongly enough to transmit that vibration. They also vibrate, as does the human body, according to specific harmonic proportions which reflect the geometry of their structure. The phenomenon of sympathetic resonance is reinforced by their use on or around the body. From atom to molecule, to cells and DNA, the body is constructed from geometric forms that fit together to compose the whole. The tuning fork, by matching these Natural Ratios, “entrains” the body’s vibration and return it to its “optimum”, healthy vibration. Tuning fork frequencies are effective tools for use in Sound healing, and can be used in conjunction with other instruments such as singing bowls and more importantly the voice and vocal harmonics (overtone chant). Tuning forks emit pure sounds that are represented as pure sine waves, without any harmonics.
Originally invented to create a pure tone to which musicians could tune their instruments, tuning forks have become, in last 4 decades, important tools in medicine and alternative therapies. Because they eliminate their own overtones within a few seconds of striking, the pure resulting sound waves are rapidly transmitted throughout the nervous system and entire body with just a few applications. The ears play an important role, re-transmitting the sounds to the nervous system and via the nerves to the major organs.
Application to the bones is perhaps the most effective method of treating whole zones of the body. Bone is a particularly good conductor of Sound, it’s density increasing the speed of sound and radiating it out in all directions from the bones involved. In this case the weighted forks are used, those that have round weights attached to ends of the prongs vibrate more forcefully, thus improving their efficiency on the physical body.
It is important to remember that the tuning forks are tools, and all tools can be used in many ways that may be completely original. We always encourage students to follow their intuition and their own inner ‘knowing’ when using the forks, and never to limit themselves to someone else’s system or structure. As an introduction to the Healing power of Sound, the forks are practical and enjoyable to use. They can assist one to develop the confidence to try other sound tools such as the voice.
