Integrating Tuning Forks with Needles
a 3-day practical seminar
Vibrational Acupuncture™, a unique and innovative approach to TCM and Chinese medicine, uses precision calibrated Ohm tuning forks in conjunction with acupuncture needling on the points and meridians of the body.
The vibrational effect of the tuning forks is enhanced by the body’s skeletal structure (bone) and its watery consistency. Research confirms that the human body is comprised of 70-80% water; sound travels four times faster in water than in air. Therefore, healing vibrations can permeate the most profound levels of essence – the Jing.
According to the precepts of Chinese medicine, it takes 50 drops of blood to build 1 part of Jing. However, Jing can be fortified through acupuncture treatments, herbs, and diet, and further enhanced through application of the vibrational Qi of tuning forks.
The synergy of tuning forks and acupuncture in a treatment results in a clinically effective regimen that can balance and harmonize the patient to prevent disease. Tuning forks are also useful in the treatment of children, and sensitive, needle-phobic patients, as well as those suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Dysfunction), on both the physical and psychospiritual levels.
This non-invasive treatment allows these individuals to be receptive, relaxed instead of stressed, open to receiving the healing vibrations, and thereby being tuned and balanced.
