Human Tuning!? How to optimize your body/mind instrument

Surely you have heard of using a tuning fork to tune a piano or guitar? But what about a tuning fork to tune yourself? Your body is an instrument. Just as guitars get out of tune from daily use, so do we. Our bodies feel the effects of emotions, diet, the environment, interactions with others and so much more.

Dr. John Beaulieu, author of Human Tuning, has shown us a way to tune the body instrument. John has spent over 50 years immersed in the study of sound and healing. I have been lucky enough to attend two in person trainings with John, one of which was at his private residence in New York. He brings humor and lightness into the serious world of human suffering. He shows us that there is a way to change our energy and to re-tune ourselves with the power of sound.

During his research, John spent over 500 hours in an anechoic chamber where he could hear the pitch of his nervous system! Every part of your body, from your blood to your lungs has its own frequency.

When we tune into ourselves we can begin to discover the amazing symphony of the body.

John and his wife, Thea, created Biosonics tuning forks, giving us the ability to repattern our body and bring more balance and harmony to the nervous system.

We have all heard about being in the “zone.” This is when we are at our peak, flowing through life with ease. This is what it is like to be in tune. We are better able to adapt to the stressors of everyday life.

Our favorite tuning forks to use are the Otto C 128 and the C and G set. These forks are the perfect beginner’s set. Benefits of the C 128 include:

  • Deep relaxation and soothing peace

  • Relaxes body tissue

  • Relieves muscle tension, spasms, and pain

  • Improves blood circulation

  • Stimulates nerves on the skin and hair

The C 128 is a weighted fork that is directly used on the body to help align our physical structure. It resonates the bones, stimulates the nerves and releases tension from the body.

The frequency is based on an 8 cps fundamental tone raised in octaves (i.e. 8 cps, 16 cps, 32 cps, 64 cps, 128 cps.) The 8 cps fundamental, which is based on the pulsation of the planet earth, is the generating tone for all Biosonics tuning forks.

We love using the C 128 directly on the third eye, collar bones and sternum, hip bones and the spine. There is no wrong place to tune your body. ( unless you have a pacemaker, do not tune directly on it).

The C and G are a set of unweighted forks that are ideal for meditation and bringing the mind to a relaxed yet aware state. The C and G create a perfect fifth interval which opens the gateway for healing and higher consciousness. Listening to these two forks together puts your mind at ease and creates a sense of calm that might take 45 minutes to achieve with meditation alone. The sounds of the two forks together create one tone in the body. It is like hitting the refresh button in your browser, clearing away the old and starting fresh.
