432Hz: A Healing Frequency


Science is starting to recognize the effects sound has on the mind and the body. A=432hz tuning has presented enough evidence to be far more beneficial compared to the standard 440hz pushed by the establishment. This article presents all the reasons that have convinced me to exclusively tune and perform using 432hz.

From the reducing of stress and pain response to promoting relaxation and tranquility, proponents claim that this frequency can drastically improve mental and physical health. In addition to the healing benefits, A=432hz tuning has a unique, beautiful sound to it that can evoke specific emotions from listeners.

But what exactly is A=432hz tuning, and what makes this frequency different from other ones? How can A=432hz tuning specifically benefit the mind and body? In this blog article, we will be exploring the power and potential of A=432hz tuning and the beneficial effects it has on the body and mind. We will also look at why it is becoming increasingly popular in music production and discuss why tuning to A=432hz is set to revolutionize music. 

Read on to find out more about the vibrational healing power of this frequency.

The study conducted by Liu et al. (2019) found that tuning musical instruments to A432Hz had a significant effect on emotional and cognitive processing. Specifically, they found that when compared to tuning to A440Hz, tuning to A432Hz increased the subjects' recognition of happy and pleasant emotions, while also increasing their recognition of sad and unpleasant emotions. Furthermore, they found that tuning to A432Hz had a positive effect on the subjects' cognitive processing, with a faster response rate on cognitive tests, and greater accuracy on the completion of tasks. Overall7, the findings of this study suggest that tuning musical instruments to A432Hz can have a significant and positive effect on both emotional and cognitive processing.

Some History:

The use of the frequency of 432Hz to tune musical instruments dates back to Ancient Greece. It relies on the mathematical relationship between the harmonic series and vibration frequencies. 432Hz is more in tune with the vibrations of the universe and resonates in a naturally harmonious way with the human body and soul. It has been used in different cultures from ancient Greece and China to India and Africa. In 17th century Italy, musicians such as Giuseppe Verdi and Antonio Vivaldi composed and performed many of their songs specifically for 432Hz.

In the early 20th century, Austrian physicist Joseph Schulman experimented with music and found that a frequency of 432Hz aligned more closely with the heartbeat of the human body and natural vibrational frequencies of the universe. In 1953, a research paper published in the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America further explored the frequency's unique functionality and concluded that 432Hz was a frequency more in tune with the natural order of the universe.

In recent years, many people have become intrigued with the use of 432Hz as a method to tune musical instruments. Musicians and sound engineers world wide have begun to experiment with tuning musical instruments to frequencies based around the 432Hz frequency. Some proponents of the 432Hz movement claim that tuning at this frequency can create a greater sense of relaxation, increase the listener's connection to the music, and even increase the effect of healing music on the body.

Math and Physics:

Pythagoras developed a mathematical scale of musical pitches and the frequency of 432Hz is connected directly to Pythagoras' scale. To explain the mathematical relationship, one must look at the harmonic series that was developed by Pythagoras. In the harmonic series, an octave is divided into 12 semitones, or notes. As each of these notes are played, the frequencies of the notes rise and falls as the octave progresses higher or lower in range. The frequency of 432Hz is derived from the relationship between the entire series of notes and the oscillations of each one.

The frequency of 432Hz can be first shown to be the root note of the series. This is because, when the frequency of any note is divided by two, we get a new note that is one octave lower than the original. For example, if the note C4 is played at 320 Hz, then dividing by two will give us C3 at 160 Hz, and then C2 played at 80 Hz. This is the octave, and this process can be continued all the way down to C0 at 16Hz. If, however, the note C4 is played at 432 Hz, then C0 will be at 32Hz, making 432Hz the root note of the harmonic series.

The frequency of 512Hz can be derived from this process as well. When looking at each semitone within the series, for each note one rises, the frequency of the note will double. For example, if C4 is played in the frequency of 432Hz, then C5 will be 864Hz. Continuing this process upwards gives us 512Hz as the frequency of C6. Therefore, if 512Hz is the musical reference point, then 432Hz is exactly one octave lower.

Scientific Studies:

From a scientific perspective, sound waves carry frequencies which interact with the molecules of our body and environment. There are natural resonances that each body has to its environment, and this resonance can be amplified by attuning to its particular resonant frequency. These natural resonances are part of something known as the Solfeggio frequency scale, which is said to encompass the six core frequencies of 396, 417, 528, 639, 741, 852 Hz. It is believed that this scale could be used to create healing and conscious expansion.

The frequency of 432Hz has held a special importance in the early 20th century, ever since Austrian physicist Joseph Schulman began leading research into music and its effects of on humans. Through his studies Schulman concluded that a frequency of 432Hz was more in tune with the heartbeat of the human body and the natural vibrational frequencies of the universe. This was something entirely new to the field of music and was seen as a step forward in creating a more harmonious sound.

Schulman's findings were further supported by a research paper that was published in the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America in 1953. The paper investigated the frequency's unique functionality and compared it to the more common frequencies used in music. It concluded that the 432Hz frequency was a better acoustic fit for the structure of the universe, as it allows for a more harmonious sound. The paper also discussed the benefits of using 432Hz frequency in music, such as its ability to create a deep connection with the listener and its potential to bring about transformation. This further assisted in the adoption of 432Hz as a preferred frequency for musicians and producers alike.

In addition to the research, musicians have also been attuned to the properties of the 432Hz frequency. Through their innovative experiments, they have gone on to create music with this frequency and have used it to great success. This involves a technique of using different instrumentals and sequences to accompany the frequency. By doing this they are able to produce music that resonates deeply with the listener and helps to create a deeper connection with them.

Tuning and Music:

When instruments are tuned to 432Hz, the frequency does appear to match up with the mathematical ratios occurring in nature. Tuning a musical instrument at this frequency allows the sound waves to create a natural resonance in the listener that is soothing and calming. Furthermore, it can create a more profound connection with the music itself, leading to an individual feeling a greater sense of joy and be more relaxed.

One of the key benefits of tuning instruments to 432Hz is that the music created by instruments tuned to this frequency can potentially have more of an impact on the body. It's possible that this type of music can be even more effective in helping to treat various psychological, physical, and emotional issues. In recent years, there have been many studies conducted that have backed up these assertions, providing more validation for music tuned in 432Hz.In conclusion, tuning musical instruments to 432Hz has become increasingly popular in recent years as people have become intrigued with the potential benefits of such an approach. It's thought that tuning to this frequency could create a greater sense of relaxation, increases the listener's connection to the music, and even hold healing power for some people. As more research is conducted on the effects of this frequency, it seems likely that 432Hz will continue to gain traction in the music industry.
