The concept of tuning humans with tuning forks was discovered by Dr. John Beaulieu, a composer, musician, NYS Licensed Psychotherapist, and a Board-Certified Naturopathic physician.
In the seventies, he spent over 500 hours in an anechoic chamber, a scientifically engineered room of complete silence and darkness, where he listened closely to his body and its reactions to certain notes and realized that the nervous system could be tuned like a musical instrument.
Because he was a highly trained musician, he got the idea to use tuning forks to administer certain frequencies to his body to create a resonance.
Later, he corroborated his experiential findings by bringing his tuning forks into a lab at the State University of New York to test their effects scientifically. The experiments proved that listening to tuning forks created an instant state of mental and physical coherence that could be measured through the release of constitutional nitric oxide and related biochemical markers that are fundamental to health and well-being.
To further explore Dr. Beaulieu’s work, read his 2010 book “Human Tuning, Sound Healing with Tuning Forks” or visit his website www.biosonics.com
Dr Beaulieu’s work has inspired or influenced many in creating their own framework for healing with Tuning Forks.
David Hulse, Founder of SomaEnergetics, is known as one of the original developers of therapeutic tuning forks ‘tuned’ to the same frequencies as the ancient Solfeggio tones rediscovered in the seventies. He created the Energy Vitality technique using the Solfeggio Tuning Forks that is the backbone of my sessions.
David firmly believes that these sacred tones actually serve as a “vibrational bridge” to wholistic reintegration of the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual.
In this image, you can see how beautiful those frequencies are when seen through a CymaScope, a scientific device that captures a visual image of sound and vibration.
Each Solfeggio frequency resonates with a specific chakra as follows:
UT - 396Hz with the Root chakra
RE - 417Hz with the Sacral chakra
MI - 528Hz with the Solar Plexus chakra
FA - 639Hz with the Heart chakra
SOL - 741Hz with the Throat chakra
LA - 852Hz with the Third eye chakra
