About Sound & Vibration Healing
Delivery System of a Sacred Sound
When you strike a tuning fork you'll notice how it causes the air around the fork to vibrate, sending out very strong vibrating impulses through the air. Due to this tuning forks have been adopted by healers who use them to increase the amount of energy on parts of the body they are trying to heal.
There has been an increasing interest in using tuning forks for health, they are proving to be a very effective tool for enhancing, balancing and maintaining good health.
There are 2 types of tuning forks, weighted and unweighted. The weighted tuning forks are typically used on the body as well as using them to listen to. The weights on the end of each prong carry a stronger vibration.
The unweighted forks are used around the ears, so the client can listen to the sounds, they are also used around the body for balancing the nervous and energy systems. This allows for greater emotional, spiritual, physical and mental awareness.
Using sound therapy can really allow people to press their pause button, even just for a few minutes. A tuning fork is a very special instrument. When a tuning fork is struck it creates an almost pure tone and it can retain it's pitch for a surprisingly long time, this is of course dependent on the clients level of hearing.
The Vagus Nerve
Sound has a profound effect on the living system. Because sound goes directly into the body, it has the ability to nourish and depress the system. The ear controls the body's sense of balance, rhythm and movement and is the conductor of the entire nervous system.
The Vagus nerve, which connects the ear to the brain, also connects the ear to nearly every organ in the body. The vagus nerve is one of a pair of nerves that also originates in the medulla oblongata, and extends down into the thorax and abdomen to innervate the heart, lungs, and parts of the alimentary canal.
The Vagus nerve carries motor neurones to the muscles which facilitate swallowing, and to both afferent neurones and efferent neurones of the parasympethetic nervous system. You may notice that as people relax, they swallow more.
The OM is the amplifier for all the other forks when doing sound healing. It is the universal sound of life and is often called the heart beat of mother earth. Using the OM to heal can be very relaxing and can take us into a lovely meditative state. It balances each side of our brain allowing the mindless chatter, the ego, to be quietened. It is a loving and nurturing sound and is used at the beginning of every tuning fork healing that you will receive from me.
From a physiological basis you start to calm your autonomic nervous system as this sends waves of sounds to all your organs, and in turn the cells within the organs. As you listen to the sound your heart rate decreases , breathing softens and there is a great sense of peace, calm and pure relaxation. Pure blissfulness.

What is the Difference Between Weighted and Unweighted Tuning Forks?
Weighted Tuning Forks
These Forks work more on the Physical level.
You can feel the vibration much stronger & at a deeper level, when its stem is placed on the body. This is due to the weights at the end of each prong.
The sound lasts longer, but is softer & more diffused.
They are heavier in weight.
They are shorter in length than the same fork in Un-weighted type.
Un-Weighted Tuning Forks
These are excellent to use for pain relief, reducing inflammation and inducing relaxation.
They are normally placed on the body or by the ears.
The weighted tuning fork has round weight at the end of each prong.
These forks work more on a subtle level (delicate or mysterious)
They move in a physically lesser motion. The feeling of the vibration is more subtle, when its stem is placed on the body.
The sound does not last as long, but it is sharper & more crystallized.
The Unweighted tuning fork is plain at the end of each prong.
They are lighter in weight.
They are longer in length than the same fork in weighted type.
These are excellent to use for mental and emotional balance, improving energy field, improving physical health and promoting spiritual upliftment, helping to create inner harmony and wholeness.
These forks are placed around the body or by the ears.
To tone them strike them gently on the Tuning Fork Activator or Mallet.
Vibrational Healing at it's best!
