Matter In the Atom: The Anatomy and Physics of Sound Healing

This program is APPROVED for 20 AOA Category 1-A CME as co-sponsored by MOA.

​Course Director: Shawn Marie Higgins DO

Faculty: Shawn Marie Higgins, DO 



Sound has been used as a healing practice for thousands of years in every ancient culture of which we know.

But why sound? For human beings, sound creates a bridge between the physical and the spiritual. Therefore, it is by no mistake that genetically our bodies come equipped with the most sophisticated means by which to both make and interpret sound. In this class we will explore:


What sound is and the vibrational nature of reality

How sound and vibration apply to osteopathic medicine

The anatomy of the ear - outer, middle and inner

The pathway of a sound wave through the human body

The physiological and energetic effects of sound on the human body

And on life experience and consciousness

Two important sacred musical scales and why they are used in sound healing 

Sound healing techniques that can be used for self healing and/or with any type healing practice

How to perform full group sound immersions

And more....

Tuning Forks

Tuning Forks

*Tuning forks will be the instrument of choice and demonstration for this class.

*You do NOT need to purchase any tuning forks. They will be availabe for your use during the class.

*You may choose to purchase them at any time during the class. Since we will be using the forks for class, so you must wait until after class on the last day to receive them, BUT this gets you wholesale price.

*This also frees you from the finacial burden of having to purchase extra stuff :-)

*The tuning forks are all brand new before this class begins - the class you are part of is the only use they will have before you purchase them.

*We will be using many frequencies - you may choose to purchase some but not others, or... none .... which is totally fine!

*The course includes a Tone Library of frequencies that I have personally recorded for you so that if you choose not to purchase tuning forks, you can still practice with the tones. The tuning fork library will include separate recordings of ALL frequencies (musical scales) that we use in the class AND separate recordings of all FUNDAMENTAL musical scale intervals that we use during class. I will explain what a fundamental interval is as part of the course.

* Price of tuning forks will depend of wholesale prices closer to the time of the course.
