Sound Healing

with Tuning Forks

in Santa Barbara, CA or at Home/Remotely

We are slowed down sound and light waves, a walking bundle of frequencies tuned to the cosmos. (Albert Einstein)

“When we are ill, the body’s natural order of frequencies is altered, but when we are exposed to certain external vibrations in sound, our rhythms can be restored.” (Kulreet Chaudhary, MD, 2020, in her book Sound Medicine, p. 34)

What is Sound Healing (SH)?

Sound Healing is a form of Biofeedback. During a SH session the body auto-adjusts due to feedback about its vibrational dissonances or incoherencies in its “biofield”. SH is based on the premise that the human biofield – the energy field that surrounds and permeates our bodies – is inextricably connected with our conscious and subconscious mind, including all of our memories.  All physical, mental, and emotional disorders can be perceived as “dissonance” in our energy fields.  Sound Healing is able to diminish and resolve this dissonance and in doing so, alleviate and even eradicate the corresponding physical, mental and/or emotional symptoms.

How it works

During a Sound Healing session, the practitioner activates a tuning fork and scans the body slowly beginning from a distance, while the client lies fully clothed on a treatment table, bed, or sits comfortably. The practitioner is feeling for resistance and turbulence in the client’s energy field, as well as listening for a change in the overtones and undertones of the tuning fork. When the practitioner encounters a turbulent area, he/she continues to activate the tuning fork and hold it in that specific spot. Research suggests the body’s organizational energy uses the steady coherent vibrational frequency of the tuning fork to “tune” itself.  In short order, the dissonance resolves, and the sense of resistance gives way. This appears to correspond to the release of tension with the body and mind.


Sound Healing (SH) is the balancing of the body’s energy matrix, supporting the body in healing itself. Through working with sound and vibration – the very nature of our physical being – SH has the potential to harmonize causative dissonances in the biofield rather than treating symptoms. It supports the let go of old patterns and behaviors.

“I felt deeply nourished;

elements of myself are becoming more unlocked”

“I had no idea what to expect when I signed up for a Sound  Healing session with Stella. I don’t want to give away too much about the practice, but when the session started, I felt my body crave the sound created by the beautiful tools Stella played. After 10 minutes (I think) my body dropped into a deep healing sleep that felt so regenerating and cleansing. After about 25 minutes she woke me up by asking me a few questions that unlocked events and emotions that have been long locked away.

By the end of the healing, I felt deeply nourished and quite frankly astonished by the hour and fifteen minutes we spent together. I just booked my fourth session with Stella and feel like elements of myself are becoming more unlocked with each [session].”
