The Practitioner Activator is designed to fit comfortably around the leg, leaving both hands free for tuning fork application. It comes with quality elastic strapping that won’t loosen or slip, a buckle that closes and releases easily, and a latex-free rubber surface that is formed to fit comfortably on the leg.
For professionals, this is an indispensable tool enabling the practitioner to move freely around a treatment table. Use to activate both weighted and un-weighted tuning forks.
The purpose of an Activator is to provide an optimal sustain when activating your tuning forks, with minimal noise intrusion from the strike. In Sound Healing the strike of the tuning fork should be as unobtrusive as possible. The rubber material was chosen carefully for its level of firmness (durometer), to provide an ideal surface when activating your tuning forks, both weighted and un-weighted.
If the material is too hard, the strike will produce an unpleasant noise and undue wear on the tuning fork, and your hand/wrist. Too soft, and the activation is weak and the sustain of the vibration compromised.
In addition, the Ohm Therapeutics Activator is made from a latex-free, virgin material that is virtually odorless, in consideration of the healing environment in which these tools are used.
Note: Rubber products are often made from recycled material from the automotive industry (e.g., discarded tires). Lead is an additive sometimes used to soften the material, which is why you may see the California proposition 65 warning. Strings of lights and garden hoses, for example, often caution to wash hands after handling. You can be 100% certain that the Ohm Therapeutics Activator and Practitioner Activator use only virgin material that is free of lead and other impurities.
