What is Body Tuner?

The body tuner set consists of two tuning forks, a C 256 cps (cycles per second) and a G 384 cps, which make the interval of a fifth. The interval is called a fifth because in our Western musical scale, C and G are exactly five notes apart (i.e., C – D – E – F – G) where C is the first note and G is the fifth note. The fifth note has played an important role in many ancient teachings:
• Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu referred to the fifth as the sound of universal harmony between the forces of Yin and Yang.
• In India, the fifth is believed to create a sound through which Shiva calls Shakti to the dance of life.
• Apollo, the Greek God of Music and Healing, plucked the fifth on his Sacred lyre to call dolphin messengers to Delphi, where they channeled messages to the oracle .
•The Alchemists called the interval of a fifth crux ansata and considered it to be a transition point where matter crossed over into spirit.
• The crux ansata, also called the anak by the Egyptians, is a still point where the earth ends and our ascension into spirit begins. For them, the number five was numerlogically the perfect combination of even (two) and odd (three) representing the unity of heaven and earth. Sounding the fifth is a general sound tonic. 

Some of the benefits of the fifth are:

  • Alleviates depression
  •  Enhances joint mobility
  • Balances Earth with spirit,
  •  Directly stimulates Nitric Oxide release—
  •  Anti bacterial
  • Anti viral and immune enhancement
  •  Balances the heart, pituitary gland, sphenoid bone
  •  Balances sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system .

Releases opiate and cannoboid receptor sites in third brain ventricle.
 Technique: The Knee Tap
There are two methods to sound your C and G Body Tuners called the knee tap and the together tap. In both methods, hold your tuning forks by the stems with moderate pressure—not too tight and not too loose. Do not hold your tuning forks by the  prongs because the prongs need to vibrate in order to create the sound.
1. For the knee tap, gently tap the flat side of the tuning fork on your kneecap. Do not hit your kneecap. All it takes is a gentle, firm tap, and your tuning fork will  sound. It is best to tap your C 256 first on one knee and then your G 384 fork  on your other knee.
2. Bring the forks slowly to your ears,  about three to six inches from your ear  canal, and listen to the sounds.  Note: If you do not want to tap the forks on  your knees, then you can tap them on a hockey puck or on a carpet.
Once you have mastered the knee tap, then you can do the following ear training exercises with your body tuners:
Exercise #1 
The best way to understand the fifth is to go into the sound and experience its  qualities. Find a safe, quiet place, knee tap your tuning forks, and just be with the  sound. When the sound stops, lower your tuning forks and wait at least fifteen seconds before sounding them again .
Exercise #2
Another method of using your tuning forks is to learn to hum their sound.  Find a safe, quiet place and knee tap your tuning forks. Bring them to your ears as above and then make a humming sound that resonates with your tuning forks. If you find yourself focusing on one fork or the other, relax and let your ears find a sound that resonates inside the interval.  Next, put down your tuning forks. Imagine being in the sound of the interval space and hum the resonant sound without the forks. Your goal is to create a humming anchor sound that will take you into the sound of the tuning forks without having to use your tuning forks.  When you hum the sound of C and G without having to sound the tuning  forks, it is called toning.  If you are working with a friend or patient, then you can use both methods with them.  They can be sitting up or lying on a table. It is important that the tuning forks be sounded in a safe healing space and that the person with whom you are working understands that they will be hearing a sound.


The Together Tap  The second way to sound Body Tuners is to tap them together. Hold them by the stems and tap them together on their edges, not the flat side of the prongs. You do not have to use a lot of force to get the result and play with creating an easy sounding tap vs. a banging tap when too much force is used. When you tap then together, the tuning forks will sound overtones. Move the tuning  forks around slow and fast in the air and listen to different tones as they get louder and softer.
