Sound Therapy and Tuning Forks Bring Benefits

There is growing interest in sound therapy, an ancient healing technique that uses vibrational frequencies of sound to tune the body for optimal balance physically, emotionally and spiritually. It is gaining attention along with alternative and energy medicine, and is available in Richmond.

            Massage therapist and energy healer Pam Bancroft, at Sound Wellness, in North Chesterfield, encountered Soma Energetics tuning forks when she was becoming certified in the technique. “It changed my life,” she says. “There was this beautiful peace at a deep soul level; it is beyond words. I had to bring it to my clients and my practice.”

            Bancroft uses Soma Energetics tuning forks for a number of reasons. “The forks are color-coded to match the color frequencies of the chakras, which is very helpful during the session and after when debriefing with the client. The training is very thorough and methodical, and there are opportunities to advocate for the transformative effects of sound therapy,” she states. “I have witnessed and experienced firsthand the life-changing shifts. When the chakras are in balance; there is peace and vitality.”

            Sound therapy works with other energetic healing modalities such as reiki, massage, yoga and meditation to balance the chakras. Using tuning forks, singing bowls and ancient chanting vibrations, it is believed by some that sound therapy can also be a stand-alone technique to bring the nervous system, muscles, organs and emotions into harmonic balance.

            The frequencies are from the ancient Solfeggio scale, which is the foundation for Gregorian chanting. “The sound can instantaneously change the body’s biochemistry, causing a deep state of relaxation,” claims Bancroft. “With tuning forks, the practitioner moves the instruments using a combination of technique and intuition to the area where there are energy blocks, restoring harmony and energy flow. The result is deep peace and optimal health within, and profound shifts can occur.”
