3 Ways Tuning Forks Can Reduce Pain

3 ways to reduce pain with tuning forks Oct 15, 2019

In the video below, Jane Satchwell, the Vice-Principal of the Sound Healing Academy uses three techniques which can be used with three different types of Tuning Forks to reduce pain in joints and muscles.

In this video, Jane introduces three simple, yet powerful healing techniques which can be used with just three different Tuning Forks.

These techniques are very effective for pain relief and are particularly good for relieving pain in both joints and in muscles. In some cases, pain relief can be instantaneous.

Jane also offers a short, helpful demonstration of the techniques she is using.

Watch the video now to discover how you can apply these techniques to help yourself or a family/friend.


Three techniques to reduce pain with Tuning Forks:

1) The first technique uses the 174 Hz unweighted Tuning Fork.

This technique is used to start off the healing process. The beauty of these unweighted Tuning Forks is that you can hear the sound much more clearly than you can with the weighted ones. When we are working with this, we are not working directly on the body but just off it.


  • Activate the Tuning Fork by tapping it on a rubber puck or by tapping it with a mallet. You can hear the sound very clearly.
  • Bring the Tuning Fork close to the painful area on the body without actually touching it and move it over the area slowly.
  • When the sound dies away simply reactivate the Tuning Fork.

2) The second technique can be used with either the 128 Hz Tuning Fork or the 136.1 Hz Tuning Fork.

Both of these are weighted and are used directly on the body to target the painful area.


  • Activate the Tuning Fork
  • Put the end of the Tuning Fork directly onto the joint or muscle. As you touch it on any part of the body you can feel that vibration going in, which is very soothing.
  • As the vibration fades away, reactivate it before it completely dies away.
  • Keep working around the area where it is uncomfortable.

 Top tips:

  • If somebody has a particularly painful joint or muscle, you can make the end of a Tuning Fork a lot softer by putting a simple rubber ball on it. Although it is a little less strong, you can still feel the vibration through it.
  • You can also put a crystal tip on the end instead of a rubber ball. Using rose quartz is very good for emotional healing and can be used to release emotions as well as pain. The vibrations will be felt strongly through the crystal and the crystal will amplify the healing vibrations of the Tuning Fork.

 3) The third technique is particularly great for pain relief, which you can do when you use the weighted 128 Hz Tuning Fork and the 136.1 Hz Tuning Fork together.

The vibrational frequencies of these two Tuning Forks are very close together with only a few Hz between them. That means they are very dissonant with each other and are very helpful in releasing any stuck energy.


  • Tap one tuning fork and then the other very quickly so they are both going at the same time.
  • Then introduce them very close together on the affected part of the body, but not actually touching.
  • When you feel the vibrations dying away you can reactivate them both at the same time again.

 Top tip:

  • At the end of a session, you can always return to working off the body with the unweighted Tuning Fork to finish off the healing process.
