This is the use of weighted tuning forks used on the body to: relax muscles; assist in releasing tight fascia; help stimulate the lymphatic system to work more effectively; help improve blood circulation where there is stiffness, pain or inflammation to promote recovery. I was fortunate to discover two outstanding sound therapists, Bobbi-Jo and Andrew Weaver, from New Earth Healing Centre, and their ground-breaking research into the effects of vibration on the body’s fascia and interstitial fluid, using the Otto 128Hz tuning fork. The ‘foot’ of the Otto 128Hz fork stem is placed on and around areas which are tight for about 20 seconds or so, perhaps 2 – 5 times in each location until a relaxation, or release, is noted in the area. The tuning fork provides the muscles and fascia with gently stimulating sound waves, it is non-invasive and clients can remain clothed. From experience, clients usually notice an improvement in the area being worked within a 45 minute treatment (contact me to discuss health needs / contra-indications).
Bobbi-Jo and Andrew’s research led to the development of their trade marked ‘Vibrational Fascia Release Techniques (VFRT)’. I am a fully qualified VFRT Therapist but I continue my own study and research into the facinating inner world of the human body’s fascia matrix – I am looking forward to attending the next British Fascia Symposium conference to keep on learning!

“Being a therapist myself, but in different modalities, I am delighted to have found Lorraine and sound therapies … I can switch off and let her get on with it.
I have had numerous treatments, some are a little painful as we work on my sluggish Lymphatic System, some have been sheer bliss! Now we are adding ‘face lift’ to end my treatment…Wow what a difference! I can’t recommend Lorraine enough, lovely lady, knowledgeable and very professional”

This treatment uses unweighted tuning forks about 3-5 inches off the body. The sensors in the skin relay the vibration to the brain, helping it to re-map the geography of the body. The vibration brings the brain and body into synchronisation. ‘Brain tuning’ using binaural beats (generated by tuning forks) work to reset and sync your internal ‘clocks’. For more details check out the website of VCT founders, Bobbi-Jo and Andrew Weaver – CLICK HERE and HERE
Here is an exerpt from the an article written by Andrew Weaver about VCT https://nehcacademy.com/science-of-biological-timing/
“We generally consider the cell to be the main building block of our body, and cells combine into tissue and further into systems (cardiovascular, nervous, respiratory) where all cells involved must operate and communicate in synchronicity.
Our master biological clock is a grouping of neuron cells within the hypothalamus at the end of the optic nerve. This clock is set to the rhythm of a light/dark (day/night) cycle which is synchronized to about a day or circadian rhythm. The word circadian actually means “about a day” and is more accurately represented with a variance of a few hours longer or shorter than a full day. When the circadian clock is unable to operate within its set parameters, we experience conditions like seasonal affective disorder (SAD), changes to eating and sleeping patterns, increase in mental or physical “episodes”, and immune system vulnerability.
Since our circadian clock rhythm controls so many major systems, we consider it a “master” clock where minor clocks entrain or synchronize to the same oscillation. Most clinical responses to the conditions list above use the visual sensory system to adjust the circadian clock because the optical processing system is directly related physically to the area of the brain where the grouping of circadian clock neurons is located.”

This is what Eileen McKusick (founder) says about Biofield Tuning
What Happens in a Biofield Tuning Treatment? [link to the full article here]
During a Biofield Tuning session, a client lies fully clothed on a treatment table (or chair if more comfortable) whilst the practitioner activates a tuning fork and scans the body slowly beginning from a distance. The practitioner is feeling for resistance and turbulence in the client’s energy field, as well as listening for a change in the overtones and undertones of the tuning fork. When the practitioner encounters a turbulent area he/she continues to activate the tuning fork and hold it in that specific spot. Research suggests the body’s organizational energy uses the steady coherent vibrational frequency of the tuning fork to “tune” itself. In short order, the dissonance resolves and the sense of resistance gives way. … As the biofield dissonance subsides, clients generally report feeling “lighter” and a diminishment or resolution of their symptoms. One might interpret this as a kind of targeted nervous system biofeedback. Eileen has come to see this process as “consciousness hacking”, a side-door entry into the psyche – working with what has been hidden in plain view – which assists people in making changes they otherwise could not on their own.” [follow the link to full article]
What is the Biofield? [link to the full article here]
“In 1994 a panel of scientists at the National Institute of Health chose the word “biofield” to describe the field of energy and information that surrounds and interpenetrates the human body. The biofield is composed of both measurable electromagnetic energy and hypothetical subtle energy, or chi. This structure is also referred to as the “human energy field” or “aura.”
While western science has yet to describe and measure this energy, other cultures, especially ancient Indian or Vedic cultures describe it extensively. The term “chakra” (wheel) in Sanskirt, refers to spinning energy vortices which are seen as structures in the body’s subtle energy anatomy. Not coincidentally, within the body at each chakra location there is a corresponding large cluster of nerves or plexuses.” [follow the link to the full article]
“Biofield Tuning is not advised for individuals who are extremely ill as it may create a strong healing response in the system. As the body releases tension, any toxins that have been held in constricted tissue are released which has the capacity to produce a detox effect, for example: flu-like symptoms, exhaustion, waves of emotion, loose stools and, in extreme cases (very rare), rashes and vomiting. Cancer, pregnancy, palliative care, recent concussion and pacemakers are contraindicated in Biofield Tuning” [Reiki or possibly voice-based sound healing may be more appropriate, depending on your health status – call to discuss contraindications].
CLASSIC SOUND HEALING THERAPY – VOICE AND INSTRUMENTS
AN EFFECTIVE TREATMENT FOR STRESS REDUCTION, RELAXATION, RESTORE BALANCE, PROMOTES EMOTIONAL, MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH AND WELLBEING, VERY GENTLE AND NURTURING. ALSO, AN EXCELLENT TOOL FOR SHAMANIC JOURNEYING, IF YOU ARE ON THAT PATH.
In this treatment I mostly use the voice to tone vowel sounds which vibrate over and through the body. This is called ‘toning’. As well as toning, I may also use some instruments (singing bowls, chimes and occassionally percussion instruments). This is wonderfully relaxing and nurturing, particularly for stress and restoring balance. I trained with the College of Sound Healing and here I learnt about the power of the voice. There is an old saying that “The voice is the only instrument made by God. All other instruments are made by man”. £55 for 45 minute treatment
Group SOUND BATHS
I offer Sound Baths for groups of between 4 and 15 people at £15 per person (plus mileage). I am happy to run private group sessions at your place if you have a group of friends who would like to immerse themselves in this lovely sound experience.
The Sound Bath usually lasts approximately 55 minutes with 15-20 minutes either side for logistics (set up/ sign in/pack down). I do not use gongs, but sounds I may use include: tuning forks (Solfeggio and harmonic scale), singing bowls, Koshi wind chimes, deep tone shamanic drums and percussion instruments (not loud), and vocal toning. The intention set at the beginning of sessions is for participants to experience calmness, relaxation and enhanced wellbeing, mentally, emotionally and physically.
Drop me an email for more information.
“Deep rest and relaxation are the goal, says Auster. “Sound can bring balance, relaxation, and a sense of wholeness to the body. The sound of harmonic vibrations created by singing bowls, gongs, and other overtone-emitting instruments is intended to stimulate the alpha and theta brain waves, which are associated with deep meditative and peaceful states that are highly conducive to healing.”
The benefits are much like those of meditation, which is not surprising, since many sound therapists consider it a form of meditation.
I also offer the very gentle therapy of Reiki, either as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with Sound Therapy. £55 for a 45 minute treatment.
AN EFFECTIVE THERAPY FOR HUMANS AND ANIMALS.
As well as supporting wellbeing for young and old in their daily lives, Reiki is a well-established complementary therapy for end-of-life care, as outlined by Cancer Research UK, in the link above (extract, below):
“A Reiki practitioner aims to change and balance the energy fields in and around your body to help on a physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual level.
Reiki is a Japanese healing art that was developed by Dr Usui in Japan in the early 20th century. It is pronounced ray-key. You might also hear it called Reiki energy, Usui system of Reiki and therapeutic touch. The Japanese word Reiki means universal energy. Eastern medicine systems work with this energy, which flows through all living things and is vital to wellbeing. The energy is known as ‘Ki’ in Japan, ‘Chi’ in China and ‘prana’ in India. Reiki isn’t part of any type of religion or belief system. It is best described as a form of hands on healing used as a complementary therapy.
You don’t have to get undressed for treatment. You lie on a therapy bed and your Reiki practitioner might dim the lights or play soothing music. They put their hands on, or a few inches above your body. They will move their hands across your body, usually starting at your head and working down to your feet but may focus on particular areas of the body.
The aim is to move and balance the energy within and around your body, and to get rid of any energy blocks to encourage healing and strengthen your energy.
You might feel a tingling sensation, a deep relaxation, or warmth or coolness throughout your body. Or, you might not feel anything at all. Practitioners say this doesn’t mean the treatment isn’t working.”
DISCLAIMER – A Sound Healer / Reiki Practitioner is not a doctor / vet and therefore will not diagnose or treat a specific illness. These services are not a substitute for medical advice, diagnosis or treatment from a doctor or health care professional (or Vet in the case of animal clients). They are designed to enhance your total wellness and should be used in conjunction with your traditional medical (or veterinary) care.
I have spent the past year studying Essential Oils Practitioner Diploma with Jane Lawson at Natural Approach School and Therapies. Course work and wrtitten assignments have been passed and my exam is due next month, so I should qualify in June/July 2021 once the 60 case studies are submitted.
I have over 100 high quality essential oils to ‘play’ with, many of them organic, so I feel like a child in a sweetie shop! I love to devise lotions and potions, balms, inhalers and bath oils to bring about emotion, mental, physical and spiritual healing.
I am currently practicing as a student (still fully insured) so get in touch if you are interested in receiving this therapy. I am doing this ‘at cost’ until I qualify.
I have to say that the power of Essential Oils is amazing; transformational, in fact. I am really looking forward to sharing this modality with more clients.
