The Brainwave Tuners frequencies are based on
original research done by Anne Christine Tooley
The Brainwave Tuners FULL
set is made up of 6 tuning forks:
is used with all but the Gamma fork to create their frequencies.
How to use the BRAINWAVE Tuners
Every moment of your life
your brain is active with measurable electrical impulses. The
electricity or electrical currents generated by the brain can
be measured with an EEG (electroencephalogram), which
measures the frequency of the electrical current. This
frequency or speed of the brainwave is measured in hertz (hz)
(also known as cycles per second [cps]). These specific
brainwave frequencies are associated with your state of mind
at any particular moment.
The Brainwave Tuners are
a set of 6 forks with the exact frequencies designed to re-educate
the brain for a desired state of mind. This is done by a
process called Brain
also called Brainwave Synchronization, is the process
of synchronizing your brain's electrical activity to resonate
to a specific sound frequency. It causes brainwave frequency
to fall into step (or resonate) with a stimulus having a frequency
corresponding to the intended brain-state (for example, to
induce sleep). This process depends upon a "frequency following"
response, a naturally occurring phenomenon where the human
brain has a tendency to change its dominant EEG frequency towards
the frequency of a dominant external stimulus.
In order to entrain brainwaves,
either a single
hz frequency or a binaural beat (a fundamental frequency coupled
with a frequency close to the same hz) is used based on the average
measurable frequency of each brainwave. A binural beat is used
to create an electrical response within the brain using frequencies
that are too low for the human ear to hear.
Every time your brain
is stimulated with the appropriate brainwave frequency, the brain
produces a matching electrical response. The brainwave activity
resonates and aligns with that specific stimulus frequency.
So if you know the characteristics of each brainwave, you can
entrain the electrical current of your brain for a desired
You can entrain your brainwaves
to help you:
- improve your focus and
- tap your inner creativity
- go deeper into meditation
- be more relaxed and less
- relieve insomnia
- help you overcome depression,
anxiety, and addictions
- alleviate ADD and ADHD
- reduce OCD
The 5 measurable brain
waves are: Gamma, Beta, Alpha, Theta
and Delta. Each has a range of frequencies that correlates
to a particular brain state.

to understand Gamma brainwaves. They are seen throughout the

- focused visualization
- increased attention
- heightened learning

- peak performance
- greater levels of internal
happiness and compassion

People with learning
disorders, mental deficiencies, schizophrenia and
other psychiatric and neurological diseases are often
lacking gamma brainwave activity or have disrupted Gamma
- enhanced cognition
- helps relieve ADD
Too much in
the right brain hemisphere causes anxiety, fear,
tension and worry. Excess Beta waves are associated with depression,
anxiety, insomnia, and OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive
Disorder). Stressful events and tension are also
known to increase beta brain wave activity.
"People with ADD/ADHD
exhibit too little Beta (thinking) activity and too
much Theta (dreaming) activity. This is the classic inattention
of ADD. With ADHD, hyperactivity keeps people from falling asleep.
In essence, the person is combating the high Theta activity
and keeping themselves aroused (by increasing their Beta activity)." Lara Honos-Webb, Ph.D.
- deep relaxation
- softened focus
- relaxed vision
- beginning of accessing
the unconscious mind
- helps relieve OCD
We experience more Alpha
brainwaves when our eyes are closed, just before falling
asleep, just after waking up before opening our eyes,
and when daydreaming.
Normal Alpha brainwaves
occur equally in both brain hemispheres and cause the production
of Serotonin. OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder)
is directly linked to low levels of serotonin in the brain.
When the flow of serotonin is disrupted, the brain overreacts
with false signals that prompt these people to keep redoing a
task. Those with OCD may benefit from the Alpha brainwave
Too much in the left hemisphere can cause
depression. Too much in the frontal lobe can cause depression,
ADD and ADHD. Low levels
can cause alcohol and drug addiction because these substances
increase alpha brainwaves.
Physicist Winfried Otto
Schumann calculated the frequency of the electromagnetic field
of the earth. It is called the Earth Resonance Frequency (ERF)
and although fluctuating all the time, it is within the Alpha/
Theta/Delta frequency ranges.

Too much in adults is often found to accompany

ADHD have high levels of Delta and/or Theta brainwaves.
This fork is used alone as a single tuning fork.
- Activate the tuning
fork. To activate,
you can use a Large
Tuning Fork Activator, tap on the hard pad of your hand,
or tap on the hard muscle your thigh.
- Place a few inches
from one ear for a few seconds until the sound can no longer
be heard. Then
place a few inches from the opposite ear for a few seconds until
the sound can no longer be heard.
- Repeat as it feels
right, but don't overdo.*
Fundamental Frequency (FUND)
This fork is used together with either the Beta, Alpha, Theta
and Delta tuning fork. See details below.
Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta
Frequency (FUND) tuning fork is used with either the Beta,
Alpha, Theta or Delta tuning fork. When used together, the
FUND tuning fork and either the Beta, Alpha, Theta or
Delta tuning fork creates a third frequency, which
is what the recipient can hear. This third frequency is the brainwave
- Activate the FUND
tuning fork and either the Beta, Alpha, Theta or Delta tuning
fork depending on which brainwave you wish to activate. To activate, you can use a Large Tuning Fork Activato
or tap each fork on the hard muscle of each thigh. It is important
to activate each fork at the same time.
- Hold one fork a couple
of inches from the ear opening and the other fork the same distance
from the opposite ear opening.**
- When the sound can
no longer be heard by the recipient, activate the forks again
and this time reverse the forks to the opposite ear. Repeat as
it feels right, but don't overdo.*
particularly at the beginning of exposure to these fork(s).
Listen to your body, your
intuition, and get feedback from the person receiving these frequencies
if you can, and you will know when it's complete.Generally 4 or
6 times is enough: 2 times at each ear for a total of 4 times,
or 3 times at each ear for a total of 6 times. Short daily exposure is recommended over
several weeks. For
example, for insomnia, use the Theta and FUND just before going
to bed to help induce sleep.
** For most people the forks need to
be nearly the same distance from each ear and must also be directly at each ear's opening. The best way is to ask for feedback
from the recipient as to when they hear the third frequency
as you slightly move each fork at the ear's opening. If necessary,
the recipient can activate each fork and hold it to their ears
themselves so as to position them to create the third frequency.
this process very slowly
as to not over-stimulate, and hence overwhelm your recipient.
The tuning forks ring longer than you think, so be sure to wait
until the recepient no longer hears the third tone before activating
A single tuning fork cannot physically be made for the Beta,
Alpha, Theta and Delta frequencies because
the frequencies are too low in hertz. For each of these brainwaves,
the Fundamental (FUND) tuning fork must be used in combination
with either the Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta tuning forks. This
allows one to experience the third frequency, which is what activates
the desired brainwave.
