Acutonics From Galaxies to Cells
Acutonics From Galaxies to Cells | Planetary Science, Harmony and Medicine is now available. This full color, hard-back book takes you a journey through the solar system drawing the connections between planetary archetypes, frequencies, correspondence theory, and Oriental medicine. The culmination of fifteen years of development, research, and documentation, that demonstrates the profound universal connections between the natural world, body, mind, and spirit, and the role that they each play in our journey toward wholeness.
This comprehensive exploration into the application of sound vibration to acupuncture points, trigger points, and points of pain provides an in-depth scientific exploration of the use of sound vibration in a therapeutic setting. Providing a bold, innovative, investigation of the human bodies relationship to our solar system, this new book incorporates both the spiritual traditions and science of Oriental medicine. Planetary science, depth psychology, and Oriental medicine all have a place in this work, and are effectively woven together, into a cohesive and accessible whole.
Although it would be easy to classify this book as a textbook for the Acutonics modality, it is so much more. It weaves together scientific theories of how our bodies are influenced by the planets, philosophy, modern theories of physics and fields, music, myths, archetypal psychology, and research. The first three chapters of the book lay the foundation for the use of planetary frequencies and musical intervals on the body. Tracing scientific research that spans hundreds of years.
Chapter 1: From Galaxies to Cells provides specific examples of research into the impact of planetary influences on human health. Exploring how human physiology responds to external rhythms from both cosmic and geophysical environments, and demonstrating that these responses can be measured at the cellular level.
Chapter 2: Myths, Archetypes and Music providing an exploration of resonant frequencies that resound in both the unconscious mind and in the collective unconscious. Myths give rise to archetypes, which can be viewed as deep harmonic resonances, which help us understand the ways in which the elements and the planets influence us. These powerful forces that are everywhere and in everything support the quest for a more unified whole.
Chapter 3: The Body is a Planetary Landscape explores the relationship between the human body, the natural world, and the planets. Laying the foundation for each of the subsequent chapters, which explore the planetary bodies in our solar system in great depth. Each planetary chapter follows the same structure presenting science, myths, archetypal qualities, and music and specific highly relevant clinical applications.
The book concludes with a chapter on Points and Meridians that demonstrates the application and rational for the use of specific tuning forks on acupuncture points and meridians, and a Chapter that provides an innovative new look at the Eight Extraordinary Meridians.
This modality was co-developed by Donna Carey whiles she was Clinical Dean at the Northwest Institute for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NIAOM) and was integrated into fourteen community clinics including clinics for the elderly, refugees, homeless youth, pediatrics, chronic fatigue, HIV AIDS, and women’s integrative health care. Carey also had hospital privileges at Harbor View Hospital a leading trauma hospital in the Seattle area. Ellen Franklin has contributed her knowledge of depth psychology, archetypes and myths, and Paul and Jude Ponton, senior Acutonics faculty and experienced acupuncturists have contributed extensive treatment protocols throughout the book. The exploration of musical intervals and selection of specific classical pieces of music that evoke each of the planetary frequencies were provided by Michelangelo who has a background in classical music and opera.
Specific examples of the use and application of tuning forks to treat a wide variety of conditions commonly seen in clinical practice are provided.
There are more that 350 photos including many beautiful images from NASA/JPL, and detailed treatment photographs that demonstrate the use and application of these tools in a clinical setting.

This book was published with a new case study companion guide.
Acutonics From Galaxies to Cells: Case Study Companion Guide
Teachers and practitioners of Acutonics chronicled this new guide, which was compiled by the Kairos Institute of Sound Healing, and edited by senior faculty members Judith Ponton, DC, LAc and Paul Ponton, MAc, LAc. This book includes, more than sixty clear case study examples, of specific protocols for a wide variety of conditions.
Cases are organized by primary issue and cover autoimmune, cancer, mental health, musculoskeletal, neurological, psycho-spiritual, respiratory, and women's health. There are several cases that address pediatric concerns, and the treatment of animals. These case studies provide clear evidence and new insights into the efficacy of this modality.
Beautifully illustrated by Gail Geltner.

The oriental medicine practitioner, Jungian psychotherapist, cultural anthropologist, astrologer,
and quantum physicist — will resonate with the obvious research, and profound insight
found within each page. As a healer with a background in bodywork, counseling, cultural
anthropology, and education, I found this book integrates all these perspectives in a congruent
and enlightening way. What a joy!

This excellent book combines modern science with ancient wisdom, the result — harmonic
system of healing and self-perfection. Teaching this system in Russia and Ukraine, there is great interest among medical doctors, and other health care practitioners. Planetary tuning forks,
secrets of Chinese medicine; planets and astrology; myths and modern reality…provide new
insights of our place in this world and the role of sound.

A few years ago, I had the delightful experience of being in a room full of planetary-attuned
Acutonics gongs. Every cell in my body still remembers the goofy exultation of banging
them all willy-nilly and then just standing in the center of the room feeling the whole solar
system pulse through me. I immediately, vaguely, felt that these sounds could heal. Along
comes “Acutonics®: From Galaxies to Cells Planetary Science, Harmony, and Medicine,” and I see
that vague feeling I had has been converted into a totally practical, astrologically based system
of support for the wellbeing of body, mind, and spirit. When I think of tomorrow’s expanded
definition of astrological counsel, I hear gongs and tuning forks.
