A guide to the practice of Sound Balancing, using tuning forks to clear trauma stored in the human energy field
• 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

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.
Eileen Day McKusick is a researcher, inventor, writer, educator, and practitioner who has been studying the effects of audible acoustic sound on the human body since 1996. She is the originator of a unique sound therapy method called Biofield Tuning (formerly sound balancing) that uses tuning forks to detect and correct distortions and static in the biofield (human energy field/aura). She is the author of the book Tuning the Human Biofield: Healing with Vibrational Sound Therapy. Eileen teaches Biofield Tuning nationally and internationally and speaks at conferences about sound, consciousness, and cosmology. She has an MA in Integrative Education and has currently paused her pursuit of a PhD to write her second book. She continues to pursue research and has partnered with a group of scientists to apply the scientific method to her Biofield Anatomy Hypothesis.
“Modern science is finally recognizing that energy constitutes the blueprint of the physical body. Meanwhile, the energetic vibration of sound can be used to change that blueprint in ways that foster health and well-being. Genes literally express themselves in different ways when exposed to specific kinds of sound. Tuning the Human Biofield is a groundbreaking introduction to the art and science of applying these principles. It will take you on an intellectually juicy ride.”
— Donna Eden, author of Energy Medicine

“An excellent explanation of how the tuning forks can influence these subtle fields for healing. Thought provoking and detailed in explanation, this book is also an excellent reference guide to using the tuning forks in a treatment mode for the various chakra energy centers. A must read for anyone thinking of using tuning forks as a healing tool.”
— Jeffrey Thompson, D.C., Center for Neuroacoustic Research
“Eileen Day McKusick has meticulously gathered biofield research that supports the efficacy of sound balancing. Tuning the Human Biofield is comprehensive yet easy to read. With this, sound-on-body becomes understandable and practical for health care professionals and individual self-healing.”
— Joshua Leeds, author of The Power of Sound
“Tuning the Human Biofield is a profoundly insightful and inspiring work as well as a tremendous leap forward for the healing sciences. If I were designing an alternative medicine curriculum, this text would be required reading. In what is arguably the most comprehensive book ever written on tuning fork therapy, Eileen Day McKusick not only shows us the door to healing ourselves and unlocking our potential as energetic beings, but she also takes us by the hand and, brilliantly and eloquently, escorts us into new realms of possibility.”
