Are you looking for a simple, effective way to bring sound therapy into your practice and life? This interactive training covers information about relaxation and stress reduction through the application of pairs of tuning forks held at the ears.


Course date: Saturday - Sunday, October 12 & 13, 2019
Course times: 8:30 am - 6 pm 
Instructor: Arden Wilken (16 PDAs, CEUs).

Description: Since 2002 scientific studies have demonstrated that the use of tuning forks can make a significant statistical difference in client-assessed stress and pain levels. In this seminar you will learn to use pairs of Spiral of 5ths tuning forks to explore this subtle yet effective modality. Learn the basic effects of sound in the body, assess patient/client sensitivity to tuning forks used as sound therapy, conduct session protocols, and identify the over-activation symptoms and counter-indications. These techniques are appropriate to use on yourself, your family and patients/clients with physical, emotional and/or mental issues in a variety of settings including long-term and end-of-life care. The two-day training includes lecture, discussion, demonstration and plenty of time for hands-on practice.

Upon completion of this seminar you will be able to:

  • List two counter-indications for use of Spiral of 5ths tuning forks.
  • Describe two over-activation symptoms and remedies.
  • Demonstrate good body mechanics and application techniques.
  • List seven frequency ranges that affect different parts of the body and field.
  • Demonstrate a basic 15 minute, full body/field relaxation session.
  • Demonstrate short sessions of Spiral of 5ths tuning forks to target seven segments of the body and field.
  • Demonstrate three protocols with different pairs of Spiral of 5ths tuning forks to support deeper relaxation of the sacrum, pelvis- hips, legs, feet and field.
  • Demonstrate three protocols with different pairs of tuning forks to support deeper relaxation of the cervical vertebras - jaw, neck, shoulders, arms, hands and field.
  • Demonstrate one protocol with different pairs of tuning forks to support deeper relaxation of the entire spine, body and field.
  • Demonstrate two protocols with different pairs of tuning forks to reduce anxiety.
  • Demonstrate seven protocols with different pairs of tuning forks to relax dysfunctional habits and behaviors.
  • Demonstrate three protocols with different pairs of tuning forks to relax control issues and build self-esteem.
