Usually your fork is what gets you into deep water, health-wise.
Not so with holistic fitness consultant and trainer Laura Lynn Balcerzak: During her sound therapy sessions, she wields sound forks that are specially made for the human body and designed to rebalance the right and left sides of the brain.
During a 30- or 60-minute session, Balcerzak targets her client’s trouble spots (achy knees, tight muscles) by holding or pressing forks at different frequencies to said areas. Balcerzak claims the therapy can also help with mind-body issues, lower blood pressure, and improve the central nervous system. The best part? All you have to do is relax and breathe.
You can do sound therapy on its own or add it to the end of a personal training appointment. Balcerzak even offers training via Skype.
Sounds like your “I can’t get to the gym” excuse just got forked.
