Special guest

Researcher and Author
Eileen McKusick is an author and thought leader in health and human potential who has conducted pioneering research in the new paradigm of electric health and biofield science. She has been researching the many facets of health and human potential for the past 35 years. In 1996, she picked up her first set of tuning forks and began incorporating them in her massage therapy practice. After witnessing the positive effects on her clients, she began researching the effects of therapeutic sound on the human body and energy field, ultimately creating the sound therapy method of Biofield Tuning. In 2012, she received an MA in Integrative Education and completed her master’s thesis, Exploring the Effects of Audible Sound on the Human Body.

Eileen is the author of two books on sound therapy and biofield science. Her first book Tuning the Human Biofield: Healing with Vibrational Sound Therapy (based on her Master’s thesis) won the 2015 Nautilus Silver Award and 2017 Gold COVR award. Her second book, Electric Body, Electric Health is a groundbreaking look at the electric nature of the human body, emotions and life itself.

Eileen is also the founder of Biofield Tuning Institute, which conducts grant-funded, peer-reviewed and published research on the human biofield in partnership with other research organizations.

Innovator and Inventor
Eileen McKusick is the creator of the sound therapy method Biofield Tuning. Since her first forays with tuning forks in ‘96, she has trained over 2,000 students worldwide. Her many hours spent listening deeply to the sonic interactions of tuning forks with the body led to her uncovering the anatomy and physiology of the human energy field (also known as the biofield) and the creation of the Biofield Anatomy Map.

Over the course of her research, Eileen evaluated the many different properties of tuning forks to invent a line of specially designed weighted and unweighted forks as well as accessories for sound therapy use. Eileen is the creator of the bestselling Sonic Slider, and the uniquely effective Fibonacci Pair which combined with her innovative accessories, including the patent-pending Circuit Boot, have introduced thousands of people to the beneficial effects of sound therapy.

Speaker and Educator
Eileen McKusick is a dynamic and highly sought-after speaker and educator with an ability to synthesize information across many disciplines to tell the story of a new paradigm of electric health that is easy to understand and apply.

Eileen’s regular speaking engagements include many summits, conferences, workshops, panels, interviews and podcasts. Her popular online courses with the Shift Network — including Your Electric Body, Deep Tuning for your Electric Body, and Biofield Tuning and Vocal Sounding — have reached thousands of people worldwide.

Eileen began teaching Biofield Tuning in 2010 and has since trained over 2,000 students. The organization now has a team of 15 teachers and hundreds of certified Biofield Tuning practitioners worldwide. From 2012 to 2015, Eileen was an adjunct professor in the Wellness and Alternative Medicine department at Northern Vermont University.

Entrepreneur and Humanitarian
Eileen McKusick started her first business, the Vanilla Bean Cafe in Pomfret, CT in 1989 at age 20. Along with family members, she created a busy landmark restaurant that is still in operation today and recently celebrated its 30th anniversary.

After moving to Vermont in 2002, she founded a small gourmet foods company, Mama’s Special Kettle Corn. While growing that enterprise in 2006, she realized that she needed to devote her full focus to taking her then-hobby of Biofield Tuning and bringing it out into the world. She began training students in 2010 and has since grown Biofield Tuning into a thriving global organization.

Her passion for helping others led her to found Tuners Without Borders to bring Biofield Tuning tools and training globally to disadvantaged populations; empowering them with simple, accessible tools to improve their health and well-being.

Artist and Musician
Eileen has been a prolific artist since childhood in many different mediums including food, business, healing, theater, photography, the written and spoken word, and most recently, music. Following strong inner guidance to “learn to sing” at age 20, Eileen had five voice teachers tell her that she was incurably tone-deaf before she began to figure out how to solve the problem – with tuning forks.

After spending the past 25 years learning directly from the forks about how sound interacts with the human electrical system, she has brought her focus back to the voice and music. Eileen recently began learning electric guitar and collaborates as a singer-songwriter with the Brothers Koren, with plans to release an album in late 2021
