Katie is senior faculty and a member of the Advisory Group of the Kairos Institute of Sound Healing, LLC. As a teacher of Acutonics Sound Healing, my passion is mentoring: to bring out each student's special gifts and abilities as a Sound Healer. My excitement for the intuitive practice of Chinese medicine is something I love to share. She and Laurie Herron teach the "West Coast Acutonics." Katie teaches Acutonics I - III, V & VI, and Energetics of Points and Meridians. Laurie teaches Acutonics Levels I - IV and Energetic Healing: Awakening your inner guidance I and II.
"Every cell in our body is a sound resonator. Every cell lives in a dynamic rhythmic pattern. Each organ has its own cycle and its own pulse. Each and every system has a cycle, rhythm, pattern, and pulse that exist in resonant harmony and sympathy to the cycles of the earth and the heavens. These body systems respond to sound vibration, as do our spiritual, mental, and emotional states of consciousness. "
