History: An English osteopath called Sir Peter Guy Manners is said to be the father of sound therapy from which tuning fork therapy came about. In the 1960s, Manners concentrated his work on the use of sound frequencies that were being used in the treatment of various diseases. As pointed out by the Senses & Sciences journal, Manners realized that sound therapy stimulated the human body’s ability to heal itself. How to Use Tuning Forks: Hold the tuning fork by its handle or stem, while keeping your wrist flexible and fingers relaxed. Start by producing a sound in the tuning fork by striking it with a rubber mallet or gently tap the tuning fork against your knee or the palm of your hand. If you are using a weighted tuning fork, you can directly apply the stem end on the area of the body that’s experiencing pain or discomfort, such as a muscle or joint and you’ll be able to feel the vibration. The use of sound healing therapy is not just a new age phenomenon, but extends back thousands of years into the ancient times where many kinds of special instruments were used to remedy illnesses and revive the spirit. how it works: the sound vibration from these instruments helps to move you from what are known as “beta brain patterns”, or those with concentration, anxiety, and fight or flight reflexes to brain waves that are associated with relaxation {alpha}, meditation {theta}, and trance like states {delta}. crystal singing bowls spanning back to the 12th. century, singing bowls were used all throughout Asia and were commonly found in Tibetan monasteries and temples for meditation practices.  unlike traditional singing bowls cast in brass, our singing bowls are made from pure quartz. this amplifies their resonance, purity of sound, and overall effect. crystal bowls are made of 99.992% pure crushed quartz and heated to about 4000 degrees Fahrenheit in a centrifugal mild. what is sound healing? when an organ or body parts is healthy, it creates a natural resonant frequency in harmony with the rest of the body. when the vibration of a part of the body is out of harmony, we have dis-ease.  with dis-ease, a different sound pattern is established in the affected part of the body. when sound is projected into the dis-eased area, correct harmonic patterns are restored. what are chakras? as the universe is composed of singing wheels of energy, we too, at the inner core, spin seven wheel-like energy centers called chakras. they are measurable patterns of electromagnetic activity, centers for reception, assimilation, and transmission of life energies.  each chakra reflects essential aspects of consciousness. forming the matter programs that govern our lives; love, learning illumination.  You can access more reviving, rejuvenating, and serene stages of mind simply by listening to, or learning to play these musical instruments. Which in turn promotes: Mental and Emotional Balance Reduce Stress and Anxiety Improve Concentration and Memory Improve Sleep Enhance Immunity Spark Creativity Beta & Theta Brain Patterns These instruments help move you from Beta brain waves (anxiety & fight or flight reflexes) to Alpha, Theta, and Delta brainwaves that are associated with relaxation & meditation. Steel tongue drums nourish the forebrain, which governs 40% of our problem-solving and decision-making skills. When we are in Beta, we lose blood flow to the forebrain, challenging the decision-making process.  Steel tongue drums also assist with balancing the hemispheres of the brain. The left hemisphere or the analytical side, and the right hemisphere our intuition. How it works: Sound healing is a practice used by cultures such as the ancient Egyptians, Chinese, Native Americans, and even the United States military. It is used to treat mental illness, restore balance and happiness, and achieve peak performance. It is claimed that sound healing can treat depression, developmental disorders, anxiety, PTSD, and help manage physical and mental pain. For healthy individuals, managing one’s sound environment can be a way to recover from daily stress and enhance productivity, communication, and a feeling of well-being. Our physical and emotional — perhaps even spiritual — states can be conceived as a particular blend of frequencies, from our heartbeats and blood pressure, to the pace of our thoughts and movement. Due to a negative feedback loop, the human body and mind can sometimes remain in a self-reinforcing state of stress or imbalance. The common admonition to simply snap out of it is not usually helpful because of this loop.  The human body and mind are exquisitely attuned to the environment, so a more helpful approach is to adjust the environment to help us feel the way we want. The basic principle of sound healing is to introduce a particular frequency and rhythm that we will adapt our internal frequencies, thus helping us overcome internal conflicts, blockages, and illness. This can be a sound or vibrations directly introduced into the body via direct contact. Tuning forks use sound and vibration to balance the body’s energy. It reduces tension and promotes emotional harmony, and works in a similar way to acupuncture. Instead of needles, sound frequencies are used to stimulate points in the body. Tuning fork therapy makes use of vibrational frequency that increases energy flow in the body, which improves circulation and removes blocked energy in the body. This results in many benefits. Benefits: There are many health benefits of using a tuning fork. These include: It stimulates the cells to produce nitric oxide. When sound frequencies do this, it benefits the body by enlarging the blood vessels. This means that it increases blood flow. In addition, it enables cells of the body to work better, which also has a positive effect on blood pressure. By calming you down, inflammation in the body is lowered. In addition, vibrations can lower heart rate and brain wave patterns, thus helping you to relax. This, in turn, can provide an alternative treatment for conditions such as anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and sleep disorders. Sound therapy can also help to relieve pain. Some studies have suggested that tuning forks, in particular, can relieve bone and muscle pain, as reported by Senses & Sciences.
