If you have ever had questions about how humans should be treating monkeys and other primates, you will have answers after reading Carey and Franklin’s eye-opening article.
The Healing Power of Acutonics at the End of Life

This article by hospice chaplain Lauren Cetlin, RN, MA, AHN-BC, on the use of Acutonics® tuning forks to treat people as they approach the end of life. She shares some of her clinical experiences and suggests general guidelines and protocols for using tuning forks to ease the transition to death. It seems fitting to think about these issues as we approach the winter solstice, the most yin time of year, the dark and cold time that is most like death.

"It was such a pleasure to learn about Acutonics at the TCM Kongress in Rothenburg! I was sceptical at first, but completely sold on the approach by lunchtime on Saturday. And that was before I experienced a treatment! I have been doing nothing but Acutonics since my return home - patients, family, friends, colleagues - no one is safe! What I have observed so far is that 1) it makes people very happy and 2) they find it very relaxing. I look forward to following through to observe the effects on symptoms"
