The Acutonics® system of Sound Healing is an energy-based, non-invasive treatment that is similar to acupuncture, using the vibrations of tuning forks instead of needles.
The Acutonics® tuning forks are calibrated to the orbital properties of the planets, the harmonic series known since antiquity as the Music of the Spheres. Entraining the body to these tones brings us back into alignment with the natural frequencies and cycles of the Cosmos and activates their archetypal qualities within our psyche.
The tuning forks are applied to acupuncture points and energy centers, circulating energy in the meridian pathways, and restructuring the chakras.
In Oriental Medicine, pain and disease are caused by interruptions and blocks in the natural flow of energy throughout the body, mind, and spirit. When these impediments are removed, the coherent flow of energy resumes, restoring proper physiological functioning, emotional stability, and spiritual alignment.
Sound vibrations penetrate the acupuncture points more effectively than needles, traveling deep into the body, and reaching places not easily accessed by traditional medicine.
Acutonics® is a powerful adjunct to psychotherapy, chiropractic, energy medicine, and body work. It has been shown to successfully treat neurological, gastrointestinal, emotional, immunological and respiratory conditions. Being non invasive, it is especially useful for critically ill patents, young children, and those who have a fear of needles. Numerous case studies attest to its effectiveness in helping with hormonal issues, anxiety, stress, pain, chronic fatigue, and depression. Individuals often notice marked improvements in mood, metabolism, sleep, and energy.
What makes Acutonics® unique among sound therapies is the cross cultural and mathematical impact of the interval that is created when two tuning forks are used together.
While using the Western Allopathic model of one drug for one problem or one frequency for one symptom, may reduce an acute condition or particular complaint, using intervals created by two tones applied simultaneously, entrains the body into harmonic resonance with itself.
Once the body is harmonized, its natural propensity to heal takes over and numerous health and emotional conditions can be resolved.
Some intervals are deeply harmonic and generate realization, joy, and heightened awareness whereas others are discordant and break up accretions such as cysts and scar tissue or energetic stagnations such as emotional holding patterns.
The Acutonics® system of sound healing is a distillation of the theories of Pythagoras, the orbital properties of the planets as calculated by Johannes Kepler, and their mathematical translation into harmonics by the Swiss scientist Hans Cousto in 1950's. The application of these mathematically derived hertz through the use of tuning forks and symphonic gongs was organized and refined by Donna Carey, Ph.D., L.Ac. and Ellen Franklin of the Kairos Institute of Sound Healing, LLC. Dr. Birch joined the Acutonics® family in 2000 and became a senior faculty member in 2003.
