Get Rid of Pain Fast!

How Does it Work?

  • Each cell and tissue of our body resonates with specific frequencies.
  • When essential oils and sound healing from tuning forks are applied together on or around the body it releases pressurized fluid in the tissues by compressing the crystalline structure of collagen, fascia, and bone. 
  • Directs the body’s cells and tissues to ‘tune-up’ to the correct frequency of the tuning fork and essential oils.  In other words, the body naturally resonates with harmonious frequencies like the musical scale, or planetary frequencies. 
  • Generates a bio-electric current flow that allows us to open blocked energy fields to and from the heart.
  • The heart is the gateway to our soul’s purpose and journey of life. 
  • Healing the heart is a necessary step in all healing processes. It has the largest measurable energy field of the body.

True Story

Mary came in for AromaTune because her friend told her how good it felt.  Mary was having pain in her right shoulder for several months.  Nothing she tried has helped.  She reported that other than her shoulder pain everything else was great.  She had no other health issues, she was happy, had a good relationship with her husband, and she felt content.

Upon examination, and small talk it was revealed that she felt overloaded and responsible for her family.  Plus, her sister and her kids had moved in with them several months ago.  Because she wasn’t complaining or blaming anyone she didn’t feel that she had any stress.  However, once she began talking about it Mary realized that she had been holding in a lot of feelings.  She did everything for everybody else ignoring her own needs.  “I feel as if the world is on top of my shoulders”. “I’m worried for my sister, and at the same time I can’t continue to take care of her”. 

Physically it also became clear that her gut health wasn’t as healthy as she thought.  Mary had become accustomed to constipation, and she stated her normal was to have a bowel movement every two to three days.  Since this was her “normal”, she didn’t tell me at first.  I explained that in fact her normal isn’t healthy, and that with the AromaTune essential oils protocols we could address this as well.

After three weeks she reported she was having a bowel movement every day, and her shoulder pain was nearly gone!  Also, she was able to relegate some of the housework to others in the household.  She voiced her concerns, and her sister began doing things to help herself.  She told Mary that she never expected her to solve all of her problems.  She didn’t know that she was overstepping her boundaries.

Mary was able to voice her concerns, communicate clearly, and resolve feelings of burden.   Once released she was also able to release her intestines freely as well.

This is no surprise to me because I addressed the minor shoulder chakras, abdominal chakras, throat, and sacral chakras.  All related to emotional-spiritual stress of communication, speaking, listening, and acknowledging how a relationship with someone makes you feel. 

Why did this happen to Mary?

Emotions and hormones are intimately connected as glands release hormones in response to stressors that can trigger changes in blood pressure, heartbeat, temperature, pale or red skin from increased or decreased vascular flow, open or closed pores for release of sweat, or goose bumps, flight or fight, trembling, muscle contraction, fainting, dizziness, tunnel vision, tinnitus, loss of urine or bowels. 

Emotions are expressed responses to feelings, or stressors.  A person’s emotions are what we see and experience when engaged with them.  That is why when a person is troubled, we experience this, and know it to be so even when they vehemently deny having hurt feelings. 

Emotions can be harmonious or responsive.  Flowing from Generation to Resolution.  

Basic emotions are positive and negative.  When in harmony they flow back and forth between positive and negative responses appropriately to the trigger. 

  • Love and joy to apathy or mania.
  • Empathy and consideration to anxiety, obsessive thinking.
  • Purpose and assertion to anger and irritability. 
  • Openness, letting come and go to sadness and loneliness. 
  • Faith and vulnerability to judgment and disgust.
  • Courage and trust to fear, shock and surprise. 

Emotions can create obstruction in the free flow of energy when it fails to fall all back into the synergistic positive feeling. 

All Emotions are felt in the heart and affect the heart organ first before other organs.  Each organ is responsible for each of the main 6 emotions and hormones. 

Problems arise when emotional responses become inappropriate …

  • If emotional response is too weak or brief it is repressed and we become unable to cope, becoming overwhelmed.
  • If emotional response to too strong, intense, or prolonged, it covers up the stressor.  The root cause is never resolved.
  • If emotional response is just dysfunctional, but not weak or too excessive, we never move on from the original hurt, or the emotion is out of sync with the stressor.  An example is when someone giggles while telling their sad story about when they lost someone they loved. 

All end up with emotional obstruction-Qi Stagnation that effects emotional cycle and is a cause of physical disease, mental or emotional disturbance. 

The Qi-energy of the Chakras and Meridians become congested, or weak.  This is like saying you have a poor Wi-Fi connection that cuts in and out, or eventually will disconnect altogether. 

That is pretty hard to deal with every day if you would like to work at home, surf the internet, or even watch a movie.

I bet you would fix that problem as soon as you could!

Treat your body and your mind with the same importance.  Keep the Qi-energy flowing smoothly to avoid disruption or disturbance.

Scientific research and medical use of sound healing

Various forms of sound frequencies have been used in Western medical settings for years. Sound for medical healing is continually researched.

Take a look at the following references.

  1. For tumor reduction:

Wan GY, Liu Y, Chen BW, Liu YY, Wang YS, Zhang N. Recent advances of sonodynamic therapy in cancer treatment. Cancer Biol Med. 2016;13(3):325‐338. doi:10.20892/j.issn.2095-3941.2016.0068
Sonodynamic therapy (SDT) is an emerging approach that involves a combination of low-intensity ultrasound and specialized chemical agents known as sonosensitizers. Ultrasound can penetrate deeply into tissues and can be focused into a small region of a tumor to activate a sonosensitizer which offers the possibility of non-invasively eradicating solid tumors in a site-directed manner. In this article, we critically reviewed the currently accepted mechanisms of sonodynamic action and summarized the classification of sonosensitizers. At the same time, the breath of evidence from SDT-based studies suggests that SDT is promising for cancer treatment.

McHale AP, Callan JF, Nomikou N, Fowley C, Callan B. Sonodynamic Therapy: Concept, Mechanism and Application to Cancer Treatment. Adv Exp Med Biol. 2016;880:429‐450. doi:10.1007/978-3-319-22536-4_22
Sonodynamic therapy (SDT) represents an emerging approach that offers the possibility of non-invasively eradicating solid tumors in a site-directed manner. It involves the sensitization of target tissues with a non-toxic sensitizing chemical agent and subsequent exposure of the sensitized tissues to relatively low-intensity ultrasound. Essentially, both aspects (the sensitization and ultrasound exposure) are harmless, and cytotoxic events occur when both are combined. Due to the significant depth that ultrasound penetrates tissue, the approach provides an advantage over similar alternative approaches, such as photodynamic therapy (PDT), in which less penetrating light is employed to provide the cytotoxic effect in sensitized tissues. This suggests that sonodynamic therapy may find wider clinical application, particularly for the non-invasive treatment of less accessible lesions. Early SDT-based approaches employed many of the sensitizers used in PDT, although the manner in which ultrasound activates the sensitizer differs from activation events in PDT. Here we will review the currently accepted mechanisms by which ultrasound activates sensitizers to elicit cytotoxic effects. In addition, we will explore the breath of evidence from in-vitro and in-vivo SDT-based studies, providing the reader with an insight into the therapeutic potential offered by SDT in the treatment of cancer.

As irreplaceable energy sources of minimally invasive treatment, light and sound have, separately, laid solid foundations in their clinic applications. Constrained by the relatively shallow penetration depth of light, photodynamic therapy (PDT) typically involves involves superficial targets such as shallow seated skin conditions, head and neck cancers, eye disorders, early-stage cancer of esophagus, etc. For ultrasound-driven sonodynamic therapy (SDT), however, to various organs is facilitated by the superior… transmission and focusing ability of ultrasound in biological tissues, enabling multiple therapeutic applications including treating glioma, breast cancer, hematologic tumor and opening blood-brain-barrier (BBB). Considering the emergence of theranostics and precision therapy, these two classic energy sources and corresponding sensitizers are worth reevaluating. In this review, three typical therapies using light and sound as a trigger, PDT, SDT, and combined PDT and SDT are introduced. The therapeutic dynamics and current designs of pharmacological sensitizers involved in these therapies are presented. By introducing both the history of the field and the most up-to-date design strategies, this review provides a systemic summary on the development of PDT and SDT and fosters inspiration for researchers working on ‘multi-modal’ therapies involving light and sound.

2. For mood, anxiety, and mind.

Goldsby TL, Goldsby ME, McWalters M, Mills PJ. Effects of Singing Bowl Sound Meditation on Mood, Tension, and Well-being: An Observational Study. J Evid Based Complementary Altern Med. 2017;22(3):401‐406. doi:10.1177/2156587216668109
Poor mood and elevated anxiety are linked to increased incidence of disease. This study examined the effects of sound meditation, specifically Tibetan singing bowl meditation, on mood, anxiety, pain, and spiritual well-being. Sixty-two women and men (mean age 49.7 years) participated. As compared with pre-meditation, following the sound meditation participants reported significantly less tension, anger, fatigue, and depressed mood (all Ps <.001). Additionally, participants who were previously naïve to this type of meditation experienced a significantly greater reduction in tension compared with participants experienced in this meditation ( P < .001). Feeling of spiritual well-being significantly increased across all participants ( P < .001). Tibetan singing bowl meditation may be a feasible low-cost low technology intervention for reducing feelings of tension, anxiety, and depression, and increasing spiritual well-being. This meditation type may be especially useful in decreasing tension in individuals who have not previously practiced this form of meditation.

3. For pain relief.

Lim E, Lim R, Suhaimi A, Chan BT, Wahab AKA. Treatment of chronic back pain using indirect vibroacoustic therapy: A pilot study. J Back Musculoskelet Rehabil. 2018;31(6):1041‐1047. doi:10.3233/BMR-171042

Objective: This 12-week pilot study examines the efficacy of applying low frequency sound wave stimulation (between 16-160 Hz) through both hands and feet on relieving pain and improving functional ability in patients with chronic back pain.
Results: At week 12, significant reductions in pain sensation and pain-related disability were observed, with mean reductions of 3.5 points in P-VAS and 13.5 points in the PDI scores. Sixty-five percent of the participants had a reduction of at least 3 points on the P-VAS score, while 52% participants showed a decrease of at least 10 points in the PDI score. Significant improvement was observed in the SF-12 physical composite score but not the mental composite score.

Conclusions: The preliminary findings showed that passive application of low frequency sound wave stimulation therapy through both hands and feet was effective in alleviating pain and improving functional ability in patients with chronic back pain.
