What are Tuning Forks?

Tuning forks are instruments used not only in the music world, but also in alternative medicine, for hearing tests, for police radar gun calibration and even in electronic watches. A tuning fork is rung by hitting it on any object, usually a rubber mallet or activator. The tone it produces is a result of vibrations running up and down the handle and the two prongs of the fork. These vibrations resonate together, creating a particular pitch based on the length of the forks.

The tuning fork was invented in 1711 by John Shore, who had uses for it from parts written for him by major composers such as Frederick Handel.

Tuning Forks and Alternative Medicine

Healing with Sound Therapy or Sonopuncture

Sonopuncture is one method of possible healing through the use of tuning forks. It is similar to acupuncture, but uses a tuning fork instead of small needles. The procedure is derived from ancient Chinese methods. The tuning fork is said to emit energy through the body which then gets the body in tune. Although there is anecdotal evidence of the effectiveness of tuning forks, there is no scientific proof for this method of treatment.

When the tuning fork is struck, the vibration causes a fluctuation of high and low pressure in the surrounding air. The sound waves are transported to the body through the process of entrainment. Entrainment is the process by which two objects begin to vibrate at the same frequency. It is almost as if they are dancing together. Read more about how entrainment works.

With sonopuncture, the tuning fork is held near the area of the body which needs healing. Vibrations created by the tuning fork are sent to nerve endings, transmitting a signal to parts of the body. When this energy is transmitted through the body, the thought is that organs may be enhanced by freeing constriction of organs, thereby increasing the blood flow.

This harmonic balancing treatment uses tuning forks to bring back balance to the body where it is needed. The treatment is conducted is a similar fashion as a massage, but the client will be fully clothed when reclining on the treatment table. Tuning forks are passed over the body. The sound will become softer or louder where there are areas of deficient or concentrated energy. The tuning fork will be held over an area in discord until the body attunes itself (entrains) to the vibration and relaxes.

Tuning Fork Healing Frequency

It appears that mental, physical and emotional areas can all be affected by tuning fork therapy. With the theory of tuning fork healing, the emitted sound waves seem to restore the mind, cause deep relaxation, balance the body and help the body to heal itself. Consequently, ailments anywhere from physical pain to addictive behavior may be helped. It also seems that tuning forks may reduce muscle tension and stress, pain and spasms. With tuning fork therapy, it is also believed that blood flow increases and circulation improves because constriction of specific organs is relieved.

Hearing Test

In the medical field, tuning forks can be used as a hearing test. The tuning forks are rung and held behind the ear. Sometimes the forks are hooked up to headphones to better facilitate the test. The tuning fork is simply used as a means of air conduction. If you can hear the tuning fork, then just like any hearing test, you will raise your hand acknowledging which ear the sound came from.

In music, the most popular use of a tuning fork is to, well, tune! Good tuning forks are made of solid, consistent materials such as aluminum, steel, or alloy. This allows the resonance produced by the fork to ring a tone that is perfect every time. Tuning forks are made in many different frequencies, but the most well known note is "A" or 440 Hz. This frequency is often used to tune a whole orchestra off one violin which tunes to that frequency.

Radar Gun Calibration

Believe it or not, tuning forks are used to calibrate radar guns. To insure accurate speeds are taken by police all over the country, they are supposed to use tuning forks to adjust their radar every day. Many people who are given a speeding ticket try to use the calibration argument in court to get out of paying the fine. In some cases, if the police cannot prove they recently calibrated the radar, this is enough evidence to get out of the ticket.

Electronic Watches

Tuning forks are also used as timekeepers in electric watches. The tuning fork is hooked up to a battery, which allows the proper resonance or vibrations to accurately keep time. Once quartz watches came to the market, they dominated because of quartz's dynamic properties. Soon after, quartz tuning forks were incorporated into watches


We have been having some manufacturing problems. We are concerned about the quality of our tuning forks and will not sell ones which are inaccurate. When you order a certain frequency, that is what you expect to get and that is what we will send you.

NOTE:` If you have contacted us about manufacturing quality tuning forks, please again or call. We have lost your message.

Cosmic Octave: Origin of Harmony

The Power of Inherent Vibrations, by Hans Cousto

by Hans Cousto


Solfeggio Tuning Forks

This book is for anyone curious about the universe. Hans Cousto demonstrates the direct relationship of astronomical data to ancient and modern measuring systems, medicine, music and the human body.

According to the author, the result is an all-encompassing system of measurement with which it is possible to transpose the movements of the planets into audible rhythms and sounds, and into color. This basic system of measurement clearly demonstrates the harmonic relationship that exists between different kinds of natural phenomena in the fields of meteorology, astronomy and microbiology. This book gives an explanation of this system of measurement which is inherent in the general structure of all beings, just like the harmony of music. It also gives instructions on how to prove the existence of these universal relationships.

This book discusses the origin of Harmony, Planets, Tones, Colors, and the Power of Inherent Vibrations. The one book to have if you can only have one.

Paperback. 140 pages.
