What is the Difference Between Solfeggio Energy Tuners and Body Tuners?

We have 2 sets of Solfeggio Tuning Forks. We consider the set WITHOUT the silver color weights "Energy Tuners" because they work in the etheric field addressing each chakra or energy center. By working in the etheric field - before the information (or misinformation) is passed to the physical, we are working with "cause" and the work can be considered preventive. The other set WITH the silver weights we consider "Body Tuners" because the frequencies have been lowered so they are dense enough to be felt on the physical body. Working on the physical energy systems - acupressure points, meridians, etc - the information from the etheric has already been passed to the physical and is now an "effect.

These are some of the basic Principles of SomaEnergetics. The amazing part about these 2 sets of tuning forks is that you can work with cause before it becomes effect - or you can work with effect and trace it back to cause. The two sets work together and compliment each other beautifully! You can also grab both sets as part of a combo pack and save. 

Why 6 Solfeggio Forks instead of 9?
As David was returning from a speaking engagement in November 2000, he was struggling with the question of going to 9 frequencies as others had done. The three additional frequencies made sense on one level, but there was something holding him back. As he walked through the airport, he saw a Discover Magazine that had on the cover the question, “Why Is There Life?” He wanted to relax after a weekend of speaking, but he kept seeing the magazine as he walked to his gate. Finally he purchased the November 2000 issue of Discover Magazine and read the article about Dr. Martin Rees and his new book Just Six Numbers. It was confirmation that he was to stay with the original 6 frequencies and not add to them in any way.

Additionally, he discovered that when you add all of the frequencies together you get 3573. Using the Pythagorean Method of numerical reduction = 3+5+7+3= 18, 1+8=9. The number 9 represents completion: the six frequencies are complete within themselves! In the book referred to in the article, Just Six Numbers, Dr. Martin Rees argues that six numbers underlie the fundamental physical properties of the universe, and that each is the precise value needed to permit life to flourish. In laying out this premise, he joins a long, intellectually daring line of cosmologists and astrophysicists (not to mention philosophers, theologians, and logicians) all the way back to Galileo, who presumed to ask, “Why are we here?” As Rees puts it, “These six numbers constitute a recipe for the universe.” He adds that “if any one of the numbers were different even to the tiniest degree, there would be no stars, no complex elements, no life.” (“Discover Magazine”).

Some scientists now state that it is likely that when created we were sung into existence. Is it possible that the six days of creation mentioned in Genesis represent these six fundamental frequencies that underlie the universe? Could these tones have played a role in the miraculous shattering of Jericho’s great wall in six days before falling on the seventh day? Religious scholars believe both events occurred as a result of sounds being spoken or played. I am not saying that the six solfeggio frequencies are the six numbers referred to by Rees, but it does reinforce the concept of staying with the original six frequencies as given to Dr. Puleo.

Why the change from Sound Therapy to Vibrational Sound Certifications?
Let's start by looking at the definition of Therapy: "Treatment of illness, injury or disability." That suggests the practice of medicine.  According to John Gilbert, Founder of the Federation of Spiritual Healers Licensing Boards, he has seen a few cases where natural practitioners are being challenged by medical boards for using the word therapy. No one has been challenged in the area of sound as of the writing of this information (2016), but we feel to be pro-active with these issues.

Looking at the definition of the words Vibration and Sound they support the philosophy of SomaEnergetics:

  • Vibration: a movement back and forth, or an emotion sensed by another person.
  • Sound: vibrations in air that stimulate the auditory nerve; free from injury or disease.

SomaEnergetics starts from the premise that the person before us is whole and complete (Free from injury of disease). We use tuning forks to create a vibration and stimulate the auditory nerves.  And finally, once a relationship with the forks is established, much of the work is divinely guided intuition (Emotion sensed by another person).

As our Practitioners, Coaches and Teachers renew their certifications they will receive certificates with the new designation:

  • Certified Vibrational Sound Practitioner - CVSP
  • Certified Vibrational Sound Coach - CVSC
  • Certified Vibrational Sound Teacher - CVST
  • Certified Vibrational Sound Master Teacher - CVSMT

If are currently certified and you have cards or brochures with Sound Therapy, just use them and when you re-print make the adjustment to Vibrational Sound.

Here is a blueprint of our certifications available.

What is the difference between Live and DVD Courses?
The benefit of live courses is the feedback of the instructor and the ability to offer technique and receive technique with another person. The advantage of the DVD's are the ability to go over the information at your pace and have it as a reference. Both ways offer CE Credits toward certification and/or massage therapy CE Hours.

Our experience is that the best students are those that complete the DVD Course first and then attend a live class. They come to the live class with a great understanding of the material and techniques then get the added benefit of the live class interaction to complete their training. The DVD or Live Class alone are acceptable for training and certification.

The neat part about our system is the half-price options.

  • If you take the live class, you will be offered the DVD's at 50% off so you can review the material as desired.
  • If you complete the DVD course (Pass online test and turn in 10 sessions of that technique) then you can take the live course for 50% off.

Works both ways.
