Sound as Healing

Updated: Jun 25, 2021

Like a deep massage at a molecular level, sound is one of the oldest forms of healing. We have all experienced sound healing. For example, cats purr with a consistent pattern and frequency between 25 and 150 Hertz. Various investigators have shown that sound frequencies in this range can improve bone density and promote healing.

Our bodies are made of energy and vibration and cells communicate with each other via vibration. According to Dr. Candice Pert, “Sound is the fastest way to open the receptors on the cells.”

How do Ohm tuning forks help healing?

Disharmony can manifest in the body as stress, fatigue, tension, sore muscles, creating blockages in our natural energy flow (chi). These blockages can lead to illness. Using the sound waves of the Ohm tuning forks on muscles, joints, bones, tissue, acupressure points, and reflex points works like kinetic energy to remove tension, disharmony, and chi stagnation, and to restore well-being.

What is unique about the frequency of the Ohm tuning fork?

The Ohm tuning fork’s frequency is 134.1 Hz, meaning it cycles or “beats” 134.1 times per second. 134.1 Hz is the same vibration the earth makes as it travels around the sun (raised a number of octaves so we can hear it). An individual’s biorhythms and cycles are intimately connected to those of the Earth. Resonating with the earth physically and auditorily is beneficial and promotes positive flow of energy in the body, opens energetic pathways so chi can flow, and positively tunes our biological and circadian rhythms, which enables us to find homeostasis (the state where all your interdependent physiological elements are stable and in equilibrium). This is where profound healing begins.

Ohm is clinically shown to be a safe and therapeutic sound frequency. Ohm frequency has absolutely no negative side effects. This calculated frequency is scientifically based and its tone is spiritually upheld throughout the world for millennia. The earth tone of Ohm helps us connect with something natural, sacred, and familiar.

“Om is the imperishable word. Om is the universe... The past, the present, and the future, all that was, all that is, all that will be is om. Likewise, all else that may exist beyond the bounds of time, that too is om.” – Upanishads

Here are a few ways tuning forks are used in healing sessions:

  • Trigger Points: These are points on the muscle that have become blocked by strain, injury, stress, poor posture, etc. Application of tuning forks here dissipates the blocked energy and consequently relieves pain and bring Chi (natural life force) back to the area, and increases blood flow and oxygen to muscles.

  • Acupoints: Using tuning forks on acupressure points accesses vital energy centers and attunes the body on a cellular level. Sound waves travel through meridian system, your body’s energy superhighway, to where it’s needed.

  • Reflexology: Reflex points exist in hands and feet and correspond to all parts of the body. Using tuning forks on reflex points enhances flow of circulation and energy, and is very effective in circumstances where direct application isn’t ideal.

  • Tone: The sound vibration of the Ohm tuning forks is a good remedy for all EMF’s and noise pollution disrupting our biorhythmic cycles and overstimulating us.

I have witnessed fantastic results using these techniques with my clients in treating vertigo, headache, and muscle tension, and assisting in releasing emotions and energy blocks. Promoting a general sense of peace, tuning forks are a wonderful complement to massage, Reiki, and BodyMind Bridge healing. I invite you to schedule a therapeutic healing session where you can bask in the healing vibration of Ohm tuning forks.
