Brain Tuning Forks - Set Of 5
The Brain Tuning Forks Set contains 5 unweighted forks that are designed to directly influence brain wave states.
The set is supplied with a velveteen case.
Electroencephalography (EEG) technology has been used to identify various states of consciousness, namely Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta.
|Brain Wave State||Usually associated with:|
|Beta||Active, busy or anxious thinking and active concentration, arousal, cognition|
|Alpha||Relaxation (while awake), pre-sleep and pre-wake drowsiness|
|Theta||Dreams, deep meditation, REM sleep|
|Delta||Deep dreamless sleep, loss of body awareness|
The Brain Tuners are tapped on an activator at the same time (or one quickly after the other with a mallet) and each one is held while its vibrating/sounding out close to each of the 2 ears. The forks should be brought in close to the ears from a wider distance (e.g. half a metre) and settle at a distance that is comfortable for the person who is listening – this distance is normally beteen 10 and 20 cm.
To aid deep relaxation, begin with the beta fork and the fundamental brain tuner. Work down through Alpha, Theta and Delta, always using the fundamental tuner alongside the named tuner. The brain joins the 2 sounds to create a third, different sound, giving a binaural beat effect.
The difference between the two frequencies must be small for the effect to occur, otherwise, the two tones will be heard separately and no beat will be perceived. When the Fundamental Brain Tuner tuning fork is sounded with any of the 4 Brain tuning forks, the difference between the two tuning forks creates a binaural beat effect which can be heard as a pulsation.
The binaural beat effect influences the brain in subtle ways through the entrainment of brainwaves, and can be used to produce relaxation and other health benefits such as pain relief. This binaural beat entrainment effect has been used extensively to induce a variety of states of consciousness.
It has been shown to be beneficial for people suffering with chronic stress and insomnia.
PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU DO NOT ALREADY HAVE AN ACTIVATOR FOR TUNING FORKS, YOU WILL NEED TO BUY ONE.
We sell 4 different types of activators:
- Wooden mallet with a rubber ball end - good for both unweighted and weighted tuning forks
- Red rubber activator - best for weighted tuning forks
- Black rubber activator - best for unweighted tuning forks
- Leg activator with strap - good for both unweighted and weighted tuning forks
