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.
