The core Acutonics® curriculum is over 400 hours, and includes nine core courses, and two electives. Completion of the full program results in becoming a Certified Acutonics® Practitioner. Each course builds on prior class work, and there is significant hands-on classroom experience. Students, who do not have a background in Oriental medicine, are required to take a course in the Energetics of Points and Meridians and demonstrate competence in point location. In addition, 100 supervised clinic hours are required, and a student thesis or special project must be completed. Most classes are held over weekends and some instructors will schedule two classes at the same time to reduce travel for students. The Acutonics® Certification Program has been approved by the NCCAOM and the NCBTMB for continuing education.
We offer specialized trainings designed for clinical psychologists, spa practitioners, hospice workers, fitness and yoga instructors, and all types of organizations. We provide a special focus on self-care strategies, designed to reduce stress and promote health and well-being in the workplace. Some of our certified teachers also provide specialized one-on-one trainings in the applied use of sound vibration that incorporates the use of tuning forks, gongs, Tibetan bowls, and chimes.
Spa practitioners at leading facilities around the world including Canon Ranch, Exhale Spa, and Spa Brio at the Grand Mayan Riviera Maya, Mexico have been trained in the Acutonics® methodology. Practitioners at BRIO have completed intensive training to earn the designation as Certified Acutonics® Spa Practitioner.
"I have experienced both immediate physical and continued, profound deep changes with Acutonics. Immediate, obvious physical changes include ongoing relief from arthritis in my hands that had literally bent a few of my fingers to the side, release of continual, deeply held stress in my body, lightening of my worries, relief from long-standing sciatica pain, lowering of my blood pressure, and TMJ release. The more subtle … change is a deep, sustained, slow building inner calm."
