3 AcuPoints for Anxiety

One of the most wonderful things about being an acupuncturist is the ability to stimulate points on my own body when I need to. If I get a headache, or feel a cold coming on, I can always hop up on my table for a quick tune-up with some needles. Even when I’m not at the office, the magic of acupuncture can still work for me – as long as I know where the points are and what they do, I can press on them and get results. continue reading »

Seven Ways to Set and Achieve Your Goals

No matter what you’re trying to accomplish, setting goals is one way to help you get there. Often, when people have no goals, they lack motivation, focus and direction.  Setting goals also provides a benchmark to determine whether or not you are succeeding. But how do you set goals if you’ve never done so before? Or what if you have set goals in the past, but you didn’t achieve them? Do you just give up and tell yourself that goal setting doesn’t work? That’s one option, but let’s put things into perspective. continue reading »

Tuning Forks of the Harmonic Musical Scale Bursts Cancer Cells!

Tuning Your Body Using Tuning Forks of the Harmonic Musical Scale Bursts Cancer Cells!

On of the main reasons I love using tuning forks is the positive effect that sound frequencies have on your body.   Research conducted by Fabian Maman along with his colleague Helene Grimal, has shown that cancer cells explode with the correct use of musical frequencies.

In 1981, musician, composer and acupuncturist Fabien Maman conducted a revolutionary sound-cellular biology experiment showing the impacts of acoustic sound on human cells. He found that through a series of acoustic sounds, he could explode cancer cells, as well as energize and empower healthy ones. He also found that healthy cells changed shape and color according to the pitch and timbre of each note, and that when cells felt a ‘vibratory affinity’ with a certain note, the cells’ aura transformed into a mandala shape of vibrant color.

In the color palettes above, you can see the cell wall is destroyed.

These pictures above were taken while a xylophone was used over a period of fourteen minutes playing the Ionian Scale (nine musical notes C-D-E-F-G-A-B- and C and D from the next octave above.) “The structure quickly disorganized. Fourteen minutes was enough time to explode the cell when I used these nine different frequencies”, says Maman.

The most dramatic influence on the cells came from the human voice when Maman sang the same scale into the cells. In this experiment the cancer cells experienced a total explosion within nine minutes.

You might be wondering, “What are Tuning Forks?”

Tuning forks emit vibrational sound waves.  Traditionally they are used to tune musical instruments.

They are also used in medicine as a preferred method of testing for certain types of hearing loss. Testing for hearing loss with a tuning fork is called a Rinne test. The Rinne test involves a doctor placing a humming tuning fork near the patient’s skull.  The doctor will then place the fork near the patient’s ear. Using a stopwatch, the doctor will time how long the patient can hear it by the skull and the ear. If the patient feels the fork more through the jaw than they can hear it through the ear there is a problem conducting soundwaves.

When X-rays aren’t quickly accessible, doctors or athletic trainers can quickly determine if there is a bone fracture by striking a tuning fork and placing the vibrating fork close to the affected area.  The outcome is determined by pain and reduction of sound transmission in the affected area. The sensitivity of the tuning-fork tests are high, ranging from 75% to 92%.

Tuning forks can also provide sound therapy for a deep state of relaxation and meditation. They are also used for a variety of other health complaints, as well as balancing of the Chakra and Meridian energy systems.

When used on Acupuncture points, they stimulate homeostasis in the autonomic nervous system for balance in the body and mind.

How do They Work?

The vibration of a tuning fork is felt as it resonates through muscle, bones, and organs creating entrainment.  This is synchronization of the body’s systems, organs, and tissues to the frequency of the fork reaching a harmonic natural rhythm.

The treatment stimulates healing of tissue at the cellular level getting to the root cause of disharmony.

It works because each of our tissues, organs and cells have their own frequency.  Musical instruments have varying sound waves, which penetrate the human body, causing vibrations within the cell.  Specific vibrations strengthen healthy cells while regenerating weaker cells.

Tuning forks used for sound healing come in a variety of sets and frequencies.  By directing the sound waves of correct tuning forks at key acupuncture and reflexology points, the sound travels through the body to the appropriate organ, gland, bone, or tissue.  The healing frequency directs the body’s cells to tune up to their proper healthy pitch enabling them to function as they should.

How do Tuning Forks Burst Cancer Cells?

The findings in the laboratory setting urged Maman to continue his study, but this time he chose to work with two breast cancer patients. Each woman committed to tone for three-and-a-half hours per day over a period of a month. In one case, the tumor vanished completely.

The second woman underwent surgery to remove the tumor. Her surgeon reported that the tumor had reduced in size considerably and had literally dried up. She recovered fully from the surgery and made a complete recovery. Maman’s explanation for this incredible phenomenon was substantiated by the photographs he had taken during his case studies.

He says, “the cancer cells show evidence of cell nuclei incapable of maintaining their structure as the sound wave frequencies attack the cytoplasmic and nuclear membranes.”

The vibration of sound literally transforms the cell structure. As the voice intensifies and time passes with no break in sound, the vibratory rate becomes too powerful, and the cells cannot adapt or stabilize themselves. Therefore, the cell dies because it is not able to accommodate its structure and synchronize with the collection of sound.

They cannot live in an atmosphere of dissonance and they cannot become resonant with the body. Therefore, the tumor cells destabilize, disorganize, disintegrate, explode and are ultimately destroyed in the presence of pure sound.

For this reason, the use of tuning forks with a specific anti-cancer protocol would be a great addition to traditional cancer therapies.  The protocol can also be used prophylactically as a monthly wellness regime.

Tuning Forks and Nitric Oxide Release

According to John Beaulieu in his book, Human Tuning: Sound Healing With Tuning Forks (2010), research indicates the vibration from tuning forks when placed on or over the body stimulates the release of nitric oxide (NO) from neural, endothelial, and immune cells.  It is released to surrounding tissues as a gas.  This gas is fundamental to all living organisms.  It is made within our vascular, nerve, and immune cells.  It participates in the healthy function of all main organ systems.  The release occurs in rhythmic six-minute cycles called, “puffing”.  This is directly related to the balance of our parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems.  It is our yin and yang balance according to Chinese Medicine.

Under stress this rhythmic cycle is compromised.  With a reduction in NO release tissue pathology occurs over time.  Symptoms arise such as lack of energy, joint pain, depression, decreased libido, headaches, memory loss, and poor digestion.  These symptoms can escalate into serious diseases like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, autoimmune disorders, and cancer.

Miraculously, research shows and Otto tuning fork at 128 Hz. will spike release of NO and enhance NO rhythmic puffing cycles.  This balances the autonomic nervous system, and signals destruction of anti-bacterial, anti-viral microbes, and balances free-radicals.

Moreover, the Otto 128 is the difference between the tone of a perfect fifth.  For instance, the difference between the notes C256 and G384 equals 128cps.  Thus, when you are listening to the perfect fifth you are also hearing a 128cps pulse.  It is the sound of the perfect fifth and 128 traveling through the body that can stimulate the release of NO as well as the release of anti-bacterial, anti-viral and free-radicals.

The benefits described by researchers are that of anti-aging, enhanced cellular vitality, improved metabolism, digestion, vascular flow, and a greater sense of well-being.

The effects are physical, mental-emotional and spiritual.

I would like to reiterate that the use of tuning forks with a specific anti-cancer protocol would be a great addition to traditional cancer therapies.  The protocol can also be used prophylactically as a monthly wellness regime.

Sincerely,

Dr. Michele Arnold

However, it is different from traditional music therapy, which uses signals received through the ears that focuses on the mind.  Tuning fork sound frequencies are received through the ears, skin, tissue, bones, organs and cells.  Therefore, it works on all three levels of the human body, which are the body, mind, and spirit. 

Tuning forks used for sound healing come in a variety of sets and frequencies.  By directing the sound waves of correct tuning forks at key acupuncture and reflexology points, the sound travels through the body to the appropriate organ, gland, bone, or tissue.  The healing frequency directs the body’s cells to tune up to their proper healthy pitch enabling them to function as they should.

Fibromyalgia and Tuning Forks

Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Hypersensitivity to Pain, Multiple Joint Pain and Aches.

Can Acupuncture with Tuning Forks and Essential Oils Help?


Fibromyalgia affects about 3-6% of the world’s population, an estimated 200-400 million people worldwide, with higher numbers among women than men.1 People diagnosed with fibromyalgia experience a wide range of symptoms, including fatigue, pain, stiffness, aches and muscle tenderness, along with sleep disorders and intestinal and bowel troubles.

The diagnosis of fibromyalgia can be confirmed when eleven out of eighteen specific points on the body are tender to pressure. Interestingly, some of these tender points closely correspond to the location of ancient acupuncture points.2

Many experts link fibromyalgia symptoms to injury that affects the head and neck.  Other types of trauma not related to the cervical spine that may trigger fibromyalgia symptoms include major surgical procedures, being deployed to war, certain types of infections, emotional trauma, childhood separation from your mother for more than six months.

Whip lash type of event may lock the head and neck in a forward position, resetting the body’s trauma response in some people so that their central nervous system continues to react as though it’s under threat. The sympathetic flight-or-fight system is working overdrive, while the parasympathetic system is unreactive.4

Unfortunately, not everyone whose fibromyalgia is triggered by trauma will find relief in the same way.  But if you think your fibromyalgia pain stems from a traumatic event that may be emotionally or physically based it may be worth it for you to try our techniques.

A study conducted in 2010, suggests that acupuncture treatment is effective in relieving pain and improving quality of life for fibromyalgia patients.3 Not only can Acupuncture treat the pain and discomfort, but it can also address the underlying problems that have caused the imbalance.

In other research, subjects who received acupuncture experienced an overall improvement in fatigue, anxiety and the hypersensitivity associated with fibromyalgia.5

How Acupuncture And Chinese Medicine Can Help.

According to the theories of acupuncture and Chinese medicine, an imbalance in the flow of Qi can create symptoms and signs that reflect a Western diagnosis of fibromyalgia. Qi (pronounced “chee”) is the vital energy that animates and supports the functions of the body. It flows through specific pathways, called meridians,
and provides nourishment
for the entire body.

When Qi is abundant and freely circulating throughout the body, there is health and pain-free living. When Qi becomes “blocked,” or the supply is inadequate, pain, stiffness
and other symptoms related to fibromyalgia can appear.

What Does An Acupuncturist Do?

An acupuncturist will take a complete health history in order to find out where Qi has become blocked, and/or why the amount of Qi within the body has changed. He or she will then develop a treatment plan tailored to address the meridian pathways that are out of balance. The goal of such a plan will be to eliminate visible symptoms, while addressing the root cause(s) and underlying imbalances.

What Is Out-Of-Balance?

The body constantly strives to maintain a healthy balance of Qi traveling through the meridian pathways. When the flow of Qi has been disrupted, or the supply of Qi has changed, the body becomes unbalanced and the meridians cannot properly nourish the body. This is when signs and symptoms appear.

Most cases of fibromyalgia fit into the Chinese diagnosis of a Liver, Spleen, and/or Heart disharmony. This does not mean that these organs have a problem, it means that the functions of these organ/meridian pathways according to Chinese medical diagnosis are out of balance.

Liver. The functions related to the Liver organ, according to Chinese medicine, are to control the smooth flow of blood, Qi, and emotions and to nourish the tendons. When the Liver meridian becomes blocked there will be an inadequate supply of blood and Qi flowing throughout the body. The tendons and muscles will not be properly nourished, leading to stiffness and pain. Other symptoms of a blocked Liver are depression, anger, anxiety, and insomnia. A Liver imbalance may be caused by improper diet, stress, deep, unexpressed anger, drugs, and alcohol.

Spleen. The Chinese function of the Spleen is to transform the food that we ingest into Qi and blood. The health of the Spleen is affected by diet, over-concentration, and worry. An unbalanced Spleen can result in fatigue, digestive troubles, muscle stiffness, and pain.

Heart. When there is an insufficient amount of Qi and blood produced by the Spleen, the Heart organ will be affected. The role of the Heart is to pump blood throughout the body. It is also considered to be the home of the Spirit. If the Spleen cannot generate enough blood to nourish the Heart, the Heart Qi does not have enough control to properly house the Spirit. Symptoms can include anxiety, palpitations, insomnia, and emotional unrest.

AromaTune is our method to help bring your body back into balance.  We select 100% pure essential oils such as basil, lavender, lemongrass, peppermint and marjoram, and we apply them along the spine.  Oils are chosen specifically that offer immune support, promote relaxation, stress relief, decrease pain and inflammation and lift the mood.  The energetic frequencies of the oils are enhanced with the application of vibrational sound waves from tuning forks on Acupuncture points. The feeling of vibration from tuning forks and the aroma calms stress & anxiety, relaxes tense muscles, and gives a deep healing experience.

We use Meridian Tuning Forks that are tuned to the vibrational frequency of healthy meridian-organ systems.  Together they stimulate homeostasis in the autonomic nervous system for balance in the body and mind.

This works through what is called entrainment. It is the phenomenon of sound, in which the powerful rhythmic vibrations of one object will cause the less powerful vibrations of another object to lock in step and oscillate at the first object’s rate.  For example, if it is found that your liver meridian is out of balance, the liver tuning fork can be applied or held above the body to help your liver meridian meet the same frequency as the tuning fork.

This protocol can be beneficial for fibromyalgia, hypersensitive people, chronic fatigue, and for those with numerous joint and health complaints.
