Tuning the Human Biofield: Healing with Vibrational Sound Therapy Paperback – September 1, 2014
There is a newer edition of this item:
• Provides a precise map of the energetic biofield that surrounds the body, showing where specific emotions, memories, traumas, and pain are stored
• Details how to locate stored trauma in the biofield with a tuning fork and clear it
• 2015 Nautilus Silver Award
When Eileen McKusick began offering sound therapy in her massage practice she soon discovered she could use tuning forks to locate and hear disturbances in the energy field, or biofield, that surrounded each of her clients. She found these energetic disturbances correlated with the emotional and physical traumas her clients had experienced throughout their lives, the biofield acting as a record of pain, stress, and trauma from gestation onward. Passing the forks through these areas in the biofield not only corrected the distorted vibrational sounds she was hearing but also imparted consistent, predictable, and sometimes immediate relief from pain, anxiety, insomnia, migraines, depression, fibromyalgia, digestive disorders, and a host of other complaints. Now, nearly 20 years later, McKusick has fully developed her sound healing method, which she calls Sound Balancing, and created a map of the biofield, revealing the precise locations where specific emotions, memories, ailments, and traumas are stored.
In this book, McKusick explains the complete practice of Sound Balancing and provides illustrations of her Biofield Anatomy Map. She details how to use tuning forks to find and clear pain and trauma stored in the biofield. She reveals how the traditional principles and locations of the chakras correspond directly with her biofield discoveries. Exploring the science behind Sound Balancing, she examines scientific research on the nature of sound and energy and explains how experiences of trauma produce “pathological oscillations” in the biofield, causing a breakdown of order, structure, and function in the body.
Offering a revolutionary perspective on mind, energy, memory, and trauma, McKusick’s guide to Sound Balancing provides new avenues of healing for energy workers, massage therapists, sound healers, and those looking to overcome chronic illness and release the traumas of their past.

If you're interested in this book, here's what I'd like to share:
- The book is very well structured and provides detailed instructions for those practice-oriented as well as lots of references and bibliography for those who want more scientific background.
- This is the easiest and most effective energy healing method that I've ever seen. I've been trained before into some similar others that are more complicated, more expensive and far less efficient. I've been able to correct easily some health issues half way into the book.
- There are some procedures that I haven't seen elsewhere, very effective and easy to integrate in other therapeutic practices (ex. the adrenal rhythm balancing). There's more on author's web site and on youtube, you may want to see that first (google author's name).
- The author takes a methodical, scientific approach without getting lost in science or falling into esoteric too much. About half of the book (by pages) is about scientific theories to explain why it could work and half about what she found and how to use it.
- The book contains a lot of information from many sources, blended with author's experience in 19+ years, in a clear and useable manner.
You will need a tuning fork to work on somebody else (see the author's web site for the kits) and you may need to know a minimum of energy healing if you want to work on yourself (I used Reiki but anything similar will do, maybe e-mail to the author or ask around, it's quite easy).
The information can be used with other methods, even without the tuning forks, if you know how.
- The book offers a practical way to verify some theories about chakras and biofield/aura. You can say that's not true until you do what it says and feel it. It works regardless of your beliefs.
- By "weight" probably the book is 80-90% real stuff about what to do and how to do it. It's so detailed that later I bought the DVD thinking I'm going to learn the method faster. It was true, the DVD helped a lot. But all that information is actually in the book, clearly described by the author without any tricks. All you need to do is just read, understand, then take a tuning fork and do it as described in the book. It's really easy!
- I probably can't emphasize enough, but the information in it is priceless, and it's assembled in an easy to use format that you won't find elsewhere for just the price of this book, maybe unless you spend years and thousands of dollars. Half way through this book I unexpectedly found the answer to a chronic health issue that affected me for the last five years, for which I spent before quite a lot of time and money. I applied what I read immediately and that was the permanent fix. Can't say it's all that easy but if a skeptical engineer like me could do it, I think anybody can do it. Just trust yourself, there's nothing to fear and nothing to lose.
I would strongly encourage anyone interested to give it a try. You'll be happy you did it.
Tuning the Human Biofield: Healing with Vibrational Sound Therapy
by Eileen Day McKusick
I devoured this book, which I discovered by serendipity the day it came out. Instantly, I sensed genius in it and set out to learn more about the author and her work. I have studied and practiced other forms of energy healing: Eden Energy Medicine, Emotional Freedom Technique (energy psychology tapping), past-life therapy, and so on. I have seen the effectiveness of addressing the human energy body (biofield) when seeking physical healing. I had not worked with sound as a vibrational source for healing, nor had I experienced it, and I had never heard of this author.
The book first delighted me with Ms. McKusick’s excellent summaries of up-to-the-minute research and theories at the leading edge of the new sciences, without dissolving into the anonymous lingo of academia. She writes in a very personal, personable style, telling her own story of discovery. It seems clear she did not consciously set out to become a pioneer at the forefront of the new energetic medicine; in fact she was busy running a family restaurant, raising two boys, and going back to school to gain the credentials to write the book and speak about her work. But I can see an exciting future for medicine that leads directly from her relatively simple tuning fork methods, and it thrills me. One day we may have fine instrumentation that duplicates what Ms. McKusick can do now with her coherent sound, only many levels beyond in terms of sophistication, and at frequencies far beyond our audible and visible spectrum.
I won’t attempt to explain what she does, why, or how in this review. For that, you have the book itself. Tuning the Human Biofield provides sufficient detail for others to try and test her tuning fork method.
After working for many years with clients, she has also compiled excellent anecdotal data on the “anatomy” of the human biofield, which spreads out from our bodies like rings on a tree, containing detailed, energetically-inscribed information about everything we have lived thus far. This diagram alone is worth the price of the book. Childhood trauma? It’s there, going back as far as the birth experience. McKusick’s resonating tuning fork will respond audibly to any glitches in the field, but it also puts out a steady, coherent vibration. That steady signal, combined with her trained senses and her client’s memories, can solve the mystery, realign the distorted field, and put the biofield back in order. Lives change as a direct result. Healing ensues immediately.
For those in the healing professions, I urge you to explore this new work. For the rest of us, I hope McKusick will be able to train many practitioners to use her “click, drag, and drop” methods of rearranging life-event traumas in the biofield into the sweetly resonating, sleekly operating, singing energies of a coherent life. Read this book if you want to learn how that can happen to you, then go out and seek the leaders in the field who can help you make it happen.
** (Note: I have also written a lengthy <a href="http://liannedowney.com/tuning-my-human-biofield/">blog post</a> about my profound experience with McKusick after I purchased and read her book, and sought her out to experience her knowledge and skills directly.)
Top reviews from other countries
it is far from it.. you will find some of it but most of the book in INFORMATIVE and self-promoting. It doesn't explain various technics etc..I was expected more on-hand advice more step by step illustrations..etc..It is good for GENERAL OVERVIEW of history etc of fork sound therapy but it is not very practical for someone who wants to learn more about the different practical use of tuning forks for therapies ..
Sound and light healing is not airy fairy nonsense. Hospital use both types every day.. Ultrasound is used for swelling and reducing scar tissue as well as the well known pictures of babies; and it's also used to shatter large kidney stones. Blue light has been found effective at killing superbugs and lasers are used for eye surgery.
This is the medicine for the future.
