The Body Tuners are the ideal beginners set. The most powerful tuning fork combination, the C and G tuners create a perfect fifth and open the gateway for healing and higher consciousness. Listening to these two different tones, your body makes one tone, bringing your whole nervous system to balance and integrating your mind and body. Within 30 seconds (the same amount of time it takes to stretch a muscle), you can achieve a state of deep relaxation.
The Body Tuners consist of two tuning forks, the C and the G, they create a ratio of 3/2. Body Tuners are a special interval known in music as a perfect fifth. Lao Tzu referred to this interval 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 Sun God of Music and Healing plucked the fifth on his sacred lyre to call dolphin messengers to Delphi. These are some of the reasons it has been called "perfect".
From Dr. John Beaulieu: "One day I brought two tuning forks into the chamber and tapped them together. Immediately I observed that the sound of my nervous system realigned to the sound of the tuning forks. It was then that I realised that people can be tuned like musical instruments!"

There are two ways to sound your tuning forks. The first way is to gently hold them by the stems and firmly tap the end of the tuning fork on your knees. This will create a pure tone and is excellent for deep listening. Bring the two-prong part of the forks about an inch away from each ear and listen to the quality of tone.
The second way is to hold the tuning forks by the stems and tap them together two times to create an audible sound with overtones. This sound is good for moving around the body in the energy field.
You can adjust the volume by the strength of your tap. Experiment with getting different sounds. When you move the tuning forks quickly they will create a beautiful ringing overtone.
Remember that the tuning forks are musical instruments that need your expression and creativity to be empowered.
