Carla Adams of Ancestralriver.com. is a biofield practitioner, not a Certified Biofield Tuning Practitioner. Ancestralriver.com and Carla Adams do not represent Biofield Tuning or Eileen McKusick. Further, Carla Adams. is not a licensed or certified physician, psychologist or counselor of any kind, her knowledge or use of tuning forks, positive intentions and diaphragmatic breathing is from personal experience, and her work in the biofield with tuning forks, combined with intentions and breathing techniques, is not intended as medical advice or treatment, but rather for a feeling or sense of over-all well-being. Neither the United States, nor the individual State in which Carla Adams lives, require a license, certification, or registration for tuning fork practitioners at this time.
Therefore, modalities used as part of the Ancestral River sessions should not be relied upon as health, medical, psychological, or any other professional advice or guidance of any type.
Sound waves from tuning forks activated in the human biofield as energy medicine, are thought to locate and assess areas in the light waves of the body where the light wave frequencies are incoherent or dissonant, and then correct the flow of these energies by helping to balance the body’s energies to increase wellness. The theory of energy medicine methods is that the flow and balance of the body’s electromagnetic and subtle energies are important for all areas of a body’s well-being, and for increasing overall well-being, especially when combined with positive intentions, and specific breathing techniques.
Carla Adams is not “diagnosing” or “treating” the physical body, which is the domain of medical and healthcare professionals, but rather, is connecting to the energy aspects of the client that make it possible to bring about change, which is then noticed or felt by the client. You understand there is a distinction between “healing” using tuning forks, positive intentions, and specific breathing techniques, and the practice of medicine or any other licensed health care practice.
Although the use of tuning forks, intention, and breathing seems to have emotional, spiritual, and physical health benefits, it has yet to be fully researched by many academic, medical, and psychological communities. Therefore, the use of tuning forks combined with intention and breathing techniques is still considered experimental and the extent of its helpfulness or its risks is not fully known. Energy medicine methods like these are considered “alternative” or “complementary” to the healing arts as typically licensed in the United States, so are only self-regulated.
Energy medicine is a broad term that refers to a number of various energy techniques, processes, and methods based on the use, modification, and manipulation of energy fields that look at imbalances within an individual’s energy system as well as the energetic influence of thoughts, beliefs, and emotions on the body.
Everyone is different and will have a unique experience to an energy session. Most people who receive tuning fork sessions report feeling clearer, calmer, more relaxed, and more self-aware. Sometimes clients will experience a detox, which can vary greatly. Some clients have reported:
•Feeling very exhausted and tired, needing to sleep or lay low for a day or more; generally, this happens with people who have been ‘running on empty’.
•Feeling very emotional or being very aware of formerly masked or buried emotions – crying a lot, or being very angry.
•Headaches and/or dizziness.
•In very rare instances: skin rashes, mucus, fevers, vomiting, loose stools, excessive thirst
Generally, these symptoms are detoxification and pass within a day or two, but if a condition persists, it is important to see your energy practitioner again – sooner rather than later. Sometimes people need a little extra help to unwind and complete the adjustments.
If you have any questions or concerns at all, please feel free to discuss these with Carla Adams at email@example.com.
