Sunreed is offering new high quality weighted tuning fork sets.
Tuning forks have long been used in the field of sound therapy because of their simplicity and effectiveness. There are many systems of use with the forks, from simple intuitive application or auditory resonance, to skilled application according to the principles of Eastern elemental medicine. Our 8 tone tuning fork set offers a practitioner multiple options: 1) This completes the musical scale, which lends a wholeness or completion to the listening experience that 7 tone fork sets do not provide. WFor example, with 8 forks, you can transition from the fundamental C note to the harmonic octave with the high C. With 8 forks there is much more possibility for harmonics then with 7. 2) For those using these for chakra alignment, it provides an 8th tone for the 8th chakra, an important energy and consciousness center above the crown of the head, associated with one’s unique and highest ‘individuated consciousness,’ or highest aspects of the greater Self. (More information will be offered in instructional materials with these sets.)
Fundamentally, forks are either weighted or unweighted. Weighted forks tend to bring the sound vibration of the fork more deeply and directly into body tissue, so are applied directly to points on the body where the practitioner wishes to utilize the resonance of the fork. Unweighted forks tend to resonate louder, so are easier to hear, and thus apply ‘auditorily,’ but do not carry the vibration into body tissue as well as the weighted forks. Sunreed has chosen the weighted forks, because we believe the application directly to the body deepens the experience for the recipient. The forks can be heard and used as auditory – only tools, also.
Practitioners can choose the full 8 fork set in either 440 hertz or 432 hertz tuning. There is much information and debate over which system to use. The 440 hertz tuning is the tuning system used by musicians and musical instrument makers worldwide, and has been offered as the foundation of our music making and listening pleasure for nearly 100 years. The 432 hertz tuning system is a modern interpretation of the natural harmonics of the Cosmos, and is an equally effective system of tuning to use. We find both frequencies effective and beneficial. We suggest each individual research and experiment with these two tuning systems if they wish to make their own determination if one frequency of tuning should be used over the other.
This set contains the following notes, C, D, E, F, G, A, B, High C tuned according to either 440 or 432 hertz tuning.
