Alan Handelsman and his Resonance Tuning

About Alan

Alan Handelsman has been a certified One Brain facilitator since 1994. Since 1992 he has taken over 500 hours of energy training (TFT, EFT, One Brain, Reiki level 1 & 2), including classes with Dr. Roger Callahan (TFTdx), Gary Craig, Gordon Stokes, and Daniel Whiteside. He is trained (M.M.) and still performs as a musician, and began learning about energy work as a way to help himself with stage fright and depression. He now helps musicians and others with performance and personal issues, as well as giving workshops and demonstrations nationwide. Alan began developing the Resonance Tuner™ in 1996 and the Tuner is now being used in at least 45 of the United States and 21 other countries. Most importantly, he tells great jokes at parties.

Alan is available to do private sessions in person or by telephone, or to speak to groups, or to do demonstrations, seminars and workshops.

What is Resonance Tuning™?

In one sentence, Resonance Tuning™ is a method of restoring compatibility, harmony, and integration in and between energy fields. I believe it works on the same principles as other energy balancing modalities. When the energy system is disrupted, people suffer in a variety of ways. Balance the energy system, people feel and perform better.

What is RT? Resonance Tuning is a method of balancing energy. It can balance the energy of objects as well as people, so the effects of energy sensitivities (toxins, allergies) are sometimes reduced or eliminated. Tuning things like sugar, chocolate, cigarettes, and other foods can also reduce or eliminate the craving for these. Some people tell me that Tuning lessens their perception of aches and pain. It can make tense muscles feel more relaxed. Some people wear the Tuner on their body, and report feeling less stressed during the day. People have reported their pets settling down, or sickly pets having more energy and mobility after being Tuned.

What it is not: RT is not a cure, treatment, or prescription for any mental or physical disease or condition. It is not a replacement for any other technique or system of balancing energy. I view it as a complement to TFT, EFT, One Brain, and other energy modalities I1ve learned.

How do you do RT? The easiest way is with a Resonance Tuner™. The Tuner is in the form of a card the size of a credit card. Twenty years ago I began a process of research and discovery, during which I was helped by instruction, information, and inspiration from many sources. I have developed a way of energetically programming each Tuner Card with the Resonance Tuning process. This means that the card works automatically to balance energy when it is applied to a person, pet, food, or object.

Using the card is very simple. Hold the card on or near the object or person to be Tuned, usually for 30 to 90 seconds. Sometimes, leaving the card in place for 5 to 15 minutes will help. If you want to Tune a glass of milk (for instance), you can put the glass on the card and wait for a minute. That will usually do it. When I send out a Tuner, I include more detailed directions.

I believe whoever uses it will discover new methods and applications for the Tuner. I give workshops during which we explore more deeply other ways of using the Tuner.

How long do the effects last? It varies. Sometimes a short time. Other times much longer (a year or more). Maybe indefinitely. The Tuner itself is guaranteed to work for at least two years.

How does it work? I don1t know. I only know how to get it to work. I would be happy to sit and discuss theory for hours, but it would only be conjecture. I don1t know how EFT, One Brain, TAT, BSFF, TV, Radio, Electricity, my Car, or my Computer work, either. But I know how to use them, and who to call when I need repairs or more information.

How do I get one? By sending $30 per card to Alan Handelsman, 6112 E. Vernon Ave., Scottsdale, Arizona  85257. Make the check payable to Personal Growth Systems, Inc. I will mail you a Tuner, along with more information and instructions. You can also order with MasterCard or Visa, by emailing me the account number and expiration date, or by calling the number below. Some people split the credit card numbers in to 2 or 3 emails for security reasons. I've not heard of a problem either way.

If you have more questions, please e-mail me at, or call 480-945-6227. I will be happy to answer any questions. This is one of my favorite subjects!

With Warmth and Best Wishes,
Alan Handelsman

Comments from others:

Here is a short list of ways in which people have been using the Resonance Tuner™

Energy Sensitivities (Allergies) A person can be sensitive to literally anything. It doesn1t have to be something that is "bad" for you. It can be a piece of jewelry, vitamins, any food, clothing, soap, water, the sun, a person, cellular telephones etc.

The effects can be overt, (like getting hives when eating strawberries,) or covert. Sometimes you will make a connection, sometimes not. For instance, someone may feel tired after eating wheat. I myself found my fear of heights return after eating sugar. (Both of these specific problems have been corrected.)


John Tonin:
1)  I put the Resonant Tuner on my infected thumb before I went to bed last night with the intention to make the pain go away.  I woke up and the pain was down significantly and continues to decrease as I type.

2)  I put it over a sore spot on my hand  [it was painful to touch] a couple of weeks ago, same intention-pain was gone INSTANTLY!

Your work with me was extremely helpful in helping me overcome a reactivity to MSG. I can now eat Chinese food without worrying about having an anaphalactic reaction. I still try to avoid MSG but if there is a little mixed in I don1t have a sever asthma attack. Thanks for normalizing my life and making it possible for me to eat Chinese food. - Marie Green

I have had one of your resonance tuners for a little over a month now and decided to try it a few weeks ago on a long-time problem. My hands are sensitive to pretty much everything and I have used only hypo-allergenic products for years. They are worse in the colder wetter weather that we get plenty of in the NW. I play a lot of golf and I believe the fertilizer on the grass encourages the cracking I get on my fingers and the fingertips. Anyway, I decide to tune the grass a few weeks ago, and to my surprise (I admit), my hands did not react after playing that day despite plenty of contact with wet grass and mud. Then this past week i decided to tune a bottle of Ivory dish detergent. I also did EFT tapping around my skepticism that it would work. Well, it did-- absolutely no rash or dry patches as I would normally have gotten, and that has held for the past 5 days so far.  R.G.H.

I wrote to you a few months back about using the Resonance Tuner to neutralize substances that had for many years caused rashes and cracking on>my hands. I thought you might be interested in hearing about my progress since then. After somewhat tentatively using the Tuner on the first few substances (and EFT to deal with my anxiety that maybe it wouldn't work), I began using it regularly on more substances....

Soaps are one substance that have many many forms, and previously I could not use any that weren't hypoallergenic. After tuning or EFTing a number of different ones, it occurred to me that I probably didn't need to worry about soaps anymore.... At this point, I feel like a "normal" person, using all kinds of things I hadn't used in over 20 years, with no worry--and no rubber gloves. It is really quite wonderful, and I want to thank you personally for your help in getting me started down this path. Again, Alan, thanks for your Tuner and your ideas.  R.G.H.

I started coughing (allergies) during one of my therapy sessions yesterday so I put it next to my throat. In a minute or so I stopped coughing and did not do so again. Impressive! I shall continue to experiment. Thanks for your innovative work.  Elise Orman

I used the Resonance tuner to take the reactivity off my friend1s metal watch. It had caused sores on her wrist. She has been sensitive to metal for years and years and the RT reversed the problem. She was able to wear her watch without a Band aid under it. This lasted several weeks and she was relieved. We used the RT again and again the watch was not a problem. We Tuned her earrings too since she reacted to metal. No more sore ears.- Marie Green

I'd been having trouble sleeping on my foam mattress pad. I placed the r tuner on it. I no longer get headaches!!! -Mary Isabel Steele

On Alan Handelsman's Resonance Tuner: Alan has done presentations and sold the tuners at the last three Power Therapies Integration Conferences in the Western US and I've heard quite a few "miracle stories" from people who worked with him or bought a card. I first used the card on a reaction I had to wheat at Gary Craig's advanced seminar in February. For years I felt a certain tired feeling when I ate wheat, and I experienced that after I ate a roll at the first seminar lunch. The second day I got a card from Alan and treated a roll (the same type as the first day) before eating it. I found that I didn't really feel like having the roll after I treated it, but I made myself eat it as part of the experiment. I didn't experience the tiredness then and don't appear to have that reaction any more to wheat. ÐKate Sorensen

Pain Perception Sometimes the perception of pain will lesson within seconds. Sometimes wearing the tuner over the painful area for a few minutes or hours will work better. Reports of headaches being reduced or eliminated are common. Other examples of the Tuner helping: redness and swelling from burns and insect bites, a chronic shoulder condition caused by sitting at the computer.

Cut the area between my thumb and forefinger on Sunday. Very painful. Used some calendula gel. Woke up during the night ­ more pain ­ used Card on a whim. Pain subsided. What can I tell you? ­ B. P.

I also have severe migraines that do not respond to Energy Techniques. Twice now I have experienced drastic relief by holding the RT to the hurting temple and forehead for a total of about 15 minutes. I am excited about your new RTs.  Barbara Miller

My husband "Matt," has been complaining about a pain in the arch of one of his feet. After walking a few minutes it kicks in and is painful. I recommended that he buy arches for his shoes. He told me it doesn1t matter because when he wears shoes with arches the same thing happens.... He put the RT card on the side of his shoe where he felt pain and in a short time the pain went away. He forgot all about it and found the card when he took his shoes off in the evening. Isn1t this amazing?...And as an extra added attraction, I use your Card on an arthritic finger weeks ago. No pain and quite a gain.­B.P.

Received the tuner yesterday and had an opportunity to use it today - its a story I thought you might be interested hearing about. Since I don't really have a plantable yard because of deer, I have a fenced in patio that I have filled with plants in containers. I do feed the deer and waded into the pots in order to peer over the fence to check on the supply of feed in their pans. Somehow I lost my balance and pitched forward. I knew I could really hurt myself and probably kill a few plants while I was at it. But I was able to break my fall so I didn't land totally on my front side. However, I thought I broke my wrist and my legs didn't feel too great either. Shock tore through my body. As soon as I got up I started tapping on my thymus while I headed indoors. Put the tuner on my wrist and did EFT. The shock was gone almost instantly and the wrist I was sure I had sprained stopped hurting within minutes. I can feel a little discomfort when I bend my wrist completely upward but no pain. Used the tuner on my legs in all the hurt places and have some light red scrape marks left. No pain. I am totally impressed. Thanks.  [And from the next day:] I have some banged up legs but no real pain. I1m still finding it curious that the places I put the tuner are a little swollen with skin scrapes but no bruises. The bruises are where I didn1t put the card. But none of the day after pain and swelling that is so typical of this kind of injury. I1m sold! ­ Rosemarie Hazen

I just used the card on my ankle with terrific results by putting a sock on then tucking the card into the sock which held it in perfect position on my swollen ankle.I put it on when I went to bed and then woke up at some point very early in the a.m. with the instinct to take the sock and tuner off. In the morning the swelling had gone down remarkably.  Jan Shepard

I had toe surgery (re-breaking a badly healed broken toe from 1 1/2 years ago, putting in a pin, cutting tendons, etc.) last Friday. I had a rocky w/e with quite a lot of pain, and was taking Percocet "right on schedule" which is not like me. On Monday morning, it dawned on me that that's what the resonance tuner is for (duh!!), so I tucked it jauntily under the ace bandage so it stuck out over my toe and presto...haven't had pain since.  Pat Esborg Ph.D., R.N., C.S.-P. (Certified Specialist in Psychiatric Nursing)

II had torn a tendon in my arm and the chronic discomfort, pain and swelling had been lingering for over two months.... Each time I would rest it directly on my arm and within 5 minutes the swelling had decreased and the pain subsided. I had the freedom of mobility return to me....

I also have used it after a major workout, and I also found that the stiffness and soreness would subside considerably. I haven't used it with anything else as of yet. I did think about using it while at a restaurant, the problem was the card was at home by my computer. I now know why so many people bought more than one card. Alan, its a great product and thank you for sharing it with all of us....  Marla Brucker

Just a quick comment on your tuner - today I met a woman at the hairdresser who was suffering from pain in her knee and hip - walks with a cane. She knows about "touch healing", energy healing,etc. worked as a nurse at one time, anyway - i had my tuner with me so I handed it to her and told her - I haven't tried this yet, don't know if it works and if it does, I don't know why....When she held it over her knee she said she could feel the energy emanating from it - she also said that the pain was much better... So, there...amazing... Sharon Toole

I had a terrible pain in my neck - probably turned wrong or did something while exercising. The pain was going down my shoulder and though I'm a stoic with regards to pain, this really hurt. Then I remembered the tuner - and after all, I do have a page for Alan and his tuners on my web site....I perched the tuner at the back of my neck and left it while I was working at my computer. About a half hour later I took it off and noticed that the pain had diminished - a lot. Subsequently, I realized that the pain was gone! ... Sharon Toole

My friends who smoke crave these RTs and like to put them in their packages of cigarettes since these friends have been unable to quit smoking...So of those who have put RTs in their cig packages have reduced the quantity of cigarettes smoked. - Marie Green

I've been struggling with a sugar addiction for a few years now. (I've had it forever, but I've only struggled against it these last few years!) I've cut down a lot on my cookie, candy, cake, etc. eating, but I'm not "abstinent" and the cravings continue. For thirty years I've also had one to two pepsi's per day. Whenever I've done any work on this sugar problem, I've always considered my Pepsi consumption off limits. I didn't deem it to be that much of a problem, but in truth I'm sure it kept my sugar craving going.

There were chocolate chip cookies at the training. After eating one, Alan suggested I tune them so I wouldn't crave any more. After holding the Tuner near a cookie briefly, sure enough, I didn't have to eat any more. But, to my amazement, I discovered I then had an interest in tuning my Pepsi (which of course I had brought with me, having specially bought a bottle so I wouldn't have to worry about spilling it at the training!)

As I told the group, even if it didn't work, simply the fact that I had become willing to tune the Pepsi was truly amazing to me. And in fact it has worked. I had a few sips for each of the next three days and nothing at all in the week since then. Then, two days ago, I had a sudden interest in eating just vegetables for dinner! (This is NOT me!) And last night, even though I bought and cooked steak for my husband, I ate vegetables and rice. Vegetables for lunch today, and I'm planning to do the same tomorrow.   Its clear that not everyone who tunes a chocolate chip cookie is going to have this result. But I did, and its certainly made a believer out of me. - Deborah Vajda after attending a Resonance Tuning Workshop

You asked a while ago whether I had follow-up on my client who first used the tuner to become motivated to stop smoking. The tuner did help her achieve that goal and, once motivated, we used a variety of techniques to help her actually stop. I have recently heard from her. She has not smoked and I believe its been about a month now!   Also, a month ago I did about an hour tuner demonstration/training with my energy therapy peer consultation group. Everyone worked on an issue and one woman worked on smoking cessation. I heard from her today. She smoked three cigarettes that night and none since and had a very easy withdrawal process.
Thank you for helping to save these women's lives....  Debby Vajda

I got your Resonance Tuner a little while ago and can't believe how well it works....Anyway, I've had good luck with eliminating sensitivities for myself on a number of different items. I also tried it with a client who was sensitive to B-complex and calcium--after holding the RT and the substance, she tested strong with the substance. This held up after a week, too, and I'm very interested if she experiences an increase in her bone mass (she had a bone scan which indicated some bone loss) due to her body's increased ability to process calcium.

I also tried it with one of my son's, who has had a bad stutter. Voice Technology, then later EFT, pretty much took care of it, but we did need to clear a number of sensitivities. After a while, I noticed that the stutter was returning somewhat, and so I had my son hold the RT next to the bowl of chocolate chip ice cream that he was eating, on a hunch. I've noticed since then that he hasn't stuttered nearly as much, and we haven't been doing much EFT or collarbone breathing any more either. It was so painless! I'm almost afraid to believe it. Anyway, thank you for this amazing little device....  Martha Delafield

We have several toy or teacup poodlets. The smallest one is the most obnoxious. She barks and barks. If her master gets out of sight this mutt goes berserk barking in a loud protesting yowl. It1s awful. When I got home she started this. It1s hard on the ears and the tranquility. I put the Tuner on the back of her neck under her turtleneck sweater AND SHE SHUT UP and CALMED DOWN!!! - Marie Green

The other thing I1ve noticed is that when I1ve used the Tuner, my cats become very snuggly and want to curl up in my arms... ­ S. P.

As you know sometimes the animal (dog or cat) will often go lay right in the middle of the non-animal person. Well, this cat would try to get close to my friend and she would be worried because cats give her asthma attacks/wheezing/hives. I grabbed the cat and Tuned her. ...Then I carried the cat over to my friend and sat the cat on her chest. Cat sat there. Friend was very worried... VERY WORRIED (cat close to face). She waited Cat sat there and sat there some more. Friend tried breathing deeply to see if there was any change. Nothing - no difference - she was not reacting. Her eyes were not turning red and she was not itching. Cat sat there. Hmmmmm. Friend was just fine without any reaction at all! I had checked this out with friend first and had some remedies available in case of reaction ­ it was not done without some precautions (breathing machine, Benadryl, injectables). ­ Marie Green

Less Day to Day Stress There are at least two ways to do this. One is by wearing the tuner in a pocket in under your clothing throughout the day. A second method is 3 Tuning the day.2 One person reports that he writes the day and date down on a piece of paper, and Tunes the paper. He hasn1t tried skipping a day, because all of his days have been so pleasant since he started doing it!

I have been wearing the card near my heart for a few days. The situation where I work is highly charged and stressful and I believe it has helped keep me from plugging in so much. Either that or I'm having a spate of good days. Hard to say for sure....yet. I will continue to wear the card and see if the spate of good days persists! ... Mary Sheridan

I personally "wore" it most of the time and did notice ...I felt more centered under stress/calmer/more focused/not quite sure how to describe it....  J.Z.

More Energy While driving, etc.
Let me start by telling Thank You your card got me home all the way [from Fayetteville, Arkansas] to Chicago, awake and in one piece. No car trouble, no flat tires, and as soon as I felt tired I took it out with 2 1/2 hours left (and this was at about 11:30 PM) and I was fine the rest of the way. I was singing to the music, and practically dancing in my seat. It did wake me up! ... JoAnn Seckus

I've been going through a terrible time. In the past year my father died, I lost my job, I left my therapist in great conflict, feeling emotionally abused, I'm running out of money, trying to start a new business, and six weeks ago, my lover of the past two years left me. And I1ve just spent a week at a conference where both my therapist and my lover were in my face every day. Today I was feeling particularly rough ­ got fed up with lying in bed crying and got up being bitchy and irritable instead. Finally I got the brilliant idea of sticking an RT down the front of my bra. I1ve been feeling great ever since ­ better than I1ve felt in six weeks. I never want to be without it ­ or maybe I should trust that I1m now tuned, and set it aside until I need it again. Thank you and the universe for this particular deliverance from misery. ­ Susan Courtney

Working with Computers
Well I'm sitting in front of my computer after having Tuned it last night and this afternoon. I did it on a whim last night and actually didn1t use it until this morning. What caught my attention was that for the first time since I1ve been using a computer I feel perfectly calm, at peace and am not experiencing any nervous energy. It1s weird. Good, but weird.... S. P.

This is not a people healing story. Yesterday I got a computer notice to upgrade my crash guard so got out my 3 disks to do that. Everything was fine until disk #3 and I kept getting a notice that the disk drive was empty. Happened several times - took it out and reinserted it, etc. Finally I thought well why not and held the Tuner over the disk and then pointed it at the disk drive and reinserted. Yep - it worked.  ...Rosemarie Hazen

I keep one of the cards on my computer and seem to experience less fatigue than before. In fact, I was just a little shocked to realize that I've been sitting here for ten hours today...  Kate Sorensen

What else can you think of? I have used the card myself to help me fall asleep at night, and to help another person get over feeling carsick. One person reports wearing two Tuners in her pockets when she went for chemotherapy, and suffered no side effects other than nausea. One evening we were visiting friends who have a baby. After Tuning the baby1s medicine, she no longer put up a fuss or cried about taking it.

For over 3 weeks now I have had an awful head cold with no improvement. Four nights ago I decided to put the RT under my pillow - I felt much better the next morning and even better after the second night. The third morning I was much worse again. I looked under the pillow - and the Tuner was not there - it had fallen under the bed and I remembered this little sound as I was falling asleep the night before...... This last night, I made sure it was under the pillow again, and bingo! -
I feel a lot better again. ... Barbara Miller
