Vibrational healing with Ohm Tuning Forks provides an effective option for needle sensitive patients and children, and works well in place of—or in addition—to traditional needling techniques for accessing and nourishing the Qi and the body’s meridian system.
Rehabilitation tools that employ frequency (e.g., Micro-current, Tens, EMS and Ultra Sound devices) are effective and already familiar to medical professionals. Lightweight and portable, tuning forks are acoustic instruments, where the vibration produced is not dependent upon a source of electricity. For those sensitive to electro-magnetic frequency and radiation (EMFs and EMRs), tuning forks provide an alternative and effective solution.
In addition, a therapeutic value is placed on the natural decay that occurs when an activated tuning fork nears the end of its vibration. With tuning forks and singing bowls, this gradual vibratory diminishment allows time for the more subtle and beneficial harmonics and overtones to occur. Applied vibration is effective because sound waves travel extremely well through water. The body is 70-80% water, making it an excellent conductor and resonator of sound. Vibratory tones travel through the inner landscape of the body to help remove blockages, alleviate stasis and pain, and increase the flow of vital energy.
Ohm Tuning Forks are calibrated to a frequency that helps restore the body’s natural biorhythms and cycles. The Ohm vibration (and octaves of Ohm) is a powerful catalyst for accessing the body’s innate healing ability. Restorative and energizing, Ohm is clinically shown to be a safe, effective and therapeutic sound healing frequency. Read more to learn about Ohm, Tuning Forks and the beneficial use of Octaves.
Two Mid Ohm Tuning Forks (Ohm Unison) are the foundation tools of the Ohm Therapeutics system, and are recommended for working bilaterally and distally on the body, and for doubling the healing resonance.
Vibration activates the natural current or Qi flowing through the body.
“Ohm Tuning Forks are an essential part of my acupuncture treatments. I use them to stimulate all points that are needled during the treatment to gently stimulate and deepen the point’s healing effectiveness, and to tonify the adrenal glands along the kidney channel and boost the immune system along the spleen and stomach channels.
I have treated the following with great success: ganglion cysts, arthritic toes and hands, as well as neuromas and neuropathy related feet pain.”

HUA TUO JIA JI POINTS
The spine is our axis mundi, with nerve centers that correspond to the body’s internal organs. Apply two activated Mid Ohm Tuning Forks bilaterally next to the spine, between each vertebra, to energize the internal organ system and neural pathways, thereby nourishing the Qi and attuning the whole body. Activating the Hua Tuo Jia Ji points harmonizes the entire Zang-Fu (organ) and meridian system.
Apply two activated Mid Ohm Tuning Forks bilaterally, starting with the cervical spine, at the base of the skull, moving down through the thoracic and the lumbar spine, between each vertebra, including the sacral foramen. The tuning forks will fit snugly, close to the spine.
*This spinal treatment is one of 25 treatment protocols presented in Sound Healing: Vibrational Healing with Ohm Tuning Forks.
SOUND FACIAL ™
Mandible Wheel — ST6
When the entire body is synergistically flowing with Qi, it is positively expressed in the face. Many years ago my mother said “we make our face,” meaning that our face reflects our history, attitudes and overall health.
The acupuncture meridians that flow through the face, flow through the rest of the body. Sound travels through these meridians—and when the energy is connected—it creates a harmonious body. When the whole body is treated, the benefits, reflected in the face, are profound and lasting.

GROUNDED IN TRADITIONAL
Because sound travels deeply in the body, it accesses hard to reach places. Applied sound is beneficial because it can deepen and enhance the effects of other healing modalities. Recommended treatment applications are non-invasive, utilizing acu-points and the body’s meridian system. For ease of use, photos and medical illustrations show anatomical placement.
Tuning Fork applications readily combine with healing protocols from the following disciplines: Shiatsu, Cranial-Sacral, Trigger Point, Polarity, Massage, Physical and Sport Therapies, Chiropractic, Acupuncture and subtle body therapies that include Reiki, EFT, and other practices that balance the body’s vital energy centers and attune the Chakras.
The following anatomical areas are contraindicated during pregnancy: low abdomen, top of shoulder and sacral points. Acu-points: Ren 4-6 (low abdomen); GB 21; LI 4; BL 60; Sp 6; and UB 31-34 (sacral points). If an individual has a pacemaker it is recommended to use tuning forks distally and reflexively on other areas of the body and not directly in the area of the heart.

“Ohm Therapeutics is an integral part of my acupuncture practice. After I place the needles, I tone the tuning forks and have my patients listen to the Ohm vibration, and then place the tuning forks near the points I have needled.
A sympathetic resonance seems to occur when the tuning forks are used in conjunction with the needles; the vibration travels deeply to quicken the flow of Qi through the energetic pathways.
Other beneficial points include master and couple points of the extraordinary meridians, source points, and Window of the Sky points. I also get great results using the tuning forks on patients who have an aversion to needles. And pediatric patients love the tuning forks!”
