When the body’s frequencies are not in tune, a person may experience fatigue, perhaps to the point of exhaustion, leaving the body wide open to certain conditions, especially chronic fatigue, muscle aches and pains, sleep complications, and mood disorders. Using tuning forks for balancing the body’s frequencies increases energy flow within the entire body. This therapy method is becoming well-known through a variety of educational services. Learning how to use tuning forks is easy, and a cost-effective means for increasing energy in the body.
What is a Tuning Fork?
A tuning fork is a two-pronged U-shaped fork (usually metal) which resonates a specific pitch as it vibrates after being activated by striking it against a hard surface (usually rubber). The pitch is measured in Hertz (the number of vibrations per second) depending on the length and mass of the prongs. Tuning forks have been used for hundreds of years for tuning musical instruments.
History of Tuning Forks
“The tuning fork was invented in 1711 by John Shore (d. 1752), the renowned musician, instrument maker and trumpeter to the English Royal Court and favorite of George Frideric Handel (1685-1759).”
“Ernst Chaldni (1756-1827), often referred to as “the father of experimental acoustics,” was the first scientist to systematically investigate tuning forks, using his famous powder method to reveal the patterns of vibration on vibrating objects.”1
Throughout the early 19th century musicians raced to standardize musical notes and their accompanying frequencies. Since the invention of electrical technologies in the early 20th century, the tuning fork mathematical formula has aided in the advancement of many scientific platforms as well.

Medical use of Frequency
Almost everyone is familiar with frequency-based medical diagnostic equipment such as the EKG (measuring the frequencies transmitted by the heart) and the EEG (measuring the electromagnetic frequencies being transmitted by the brain). Doctors also use ultrasound imaging (sonography) which creates high-frequency sound waves for an image of the inside of the body. A transducer (probe) is placed on the skin after applying a layer of gel to the area. An image is then produced by the waves coming off the body parts, figuring the amplitude (strength) of the sound signal and the time it takes to travel through the body. These are very intriguing scientific frequency technologies used in the medical field.
Frequency-specific microcurrent (FSM) is a technique for treating pain by using low-level electrical current. The current is delivered to certain parts of the body in an attempt to relieve the pain. TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) and EMS (Electronic Muscle Stimulator) are pain relief methods using electrical frequency stimulation. For those not caring to use electrical pain relief methods, tuning forks are a great alternative. The principles are similar, but using different modalities for transferring frequencies to the body.
Tuning Forks Transfer Frequencies to Tissues
When a vibrating tuning fork is placed on the skin, cells immediately start vibrating at the specific Hertz (Hz) frequency of the tuning fork from the transfer of the vibrations. As the tuning fork is reactivated, with each successive placement on the same area, vibrations transfer further and further into the surrounding tissues.
Some types of pain may be attributed to the sensation caused by the difference in frequency between inflamed cells and the healthier surrounding cells. Painful muscles tend to become warm, swollen, and resonate at a slower throbbing beat. When a tuning fork with a higher frequency is placed near the slower beating painful area, cells will entrain to the higher frequency, creating resonance, often relieving pain.
What is Entrainment?
In 1966 Dutch physicist Christian Huygens, the inventor of the pendulum clock, noticed that the pendulums of two clocks synchronized when mounted on a common board. This is called entrainment and occurs when small amounts of energy are transferred between two systems in an attempt to become more stable. The system with the greater frequency slows down while the other one speeds up. Huygens observations made way for interesting research regarding resonance.
What is Resonance?
Merriam-Webster defines resonance as, “A vibration of large amplitude in a mechanical or electrical system caused by a relatively small periodic stimulus of the same or nearly the same period as the natural vibration period of the system.”
Simply stated, resonance is a synchronous sound vibration. For example, entrainment and resonance are very important in the finely tuned functions of pacemakers and hearing aids.
Uses of Tuning Forks
Tuning forks aid in building resonance within tissues. When the frequency of a given bodily tissue is weak, using a tuning fork to increase the amplitude (intensity) of the tissue frequency often results in better function of the tissue. Tuning forks may also be used for increasing low meridian energy flow since meridians resonate at certain frequencies. The typical Hertz (Hz) frequency spectrum of tuning forks ranges below 50 Hz (relaxing and grounding) all the way up to the 900’s (stimulating and lifting).

The biofield surrounds the body at a typical distance of five to six feet, depending on the height of a person. Starting at the outer edge of the biofield, a tuning for is activated and held in the field. The tone may be sharp, dull, harsh, distorted, or unpleasant in any way. Holding the tuning fork in this location for three to four activations will clear the disharmonic resonance. When an energetic blockage is cleared, the sound of the tuning fork will be bright, clear, and harmonic. It will no longer sound distorted. It takes practice to learn how to hear a clear tonation.
After clearing the edge of the biofield at the chosen location that needs clearing (perhaps the hips), continue working towards the body clearing disharmonic area by area as they come up. Biofield tuning is a fascinating field of study, with this post being a simple introduction.
There is a verified relationship between an unencumbered flow of energy in the biofield and a person’s physical and emotional health. If energetic flow is blocked by disturbances and traumas, this will eventually lead to chronic illness.
Environmental Frequencies and Entrainment
The body tends to entrain to frequencies in the environment. Be aware of this phenomenon, and compensate a chaotic lifestyle with relaxing music for maintaining harmony. When the body becomes out of sync with its natural frequencies, stress and tension build up in tissues. The combination of mediation, frequency music, and tuning forks aids in breaking an inherent cycle of stress and undesirable consequences.
Applying a PowerStrip on a central location of the body after a tuning fork session aids in sustaining harmonic frequencies. The germanium crystal layer resonates frequencies at a heightened level while the strip is on the body. Understanding this fascinating application leads to exploring the many benefits for all systems of the body, especially memory and nervous system for releasing cases of post traumatic stress syndrome.
