Shen Yun joined our organization on Chinese New Year 2004. Her name means Divine Resonance and she embodies this in all that she undertakes. She is extremely excited about sharing her deep love for this medicine with the four-legged community. Shen has brought so much joy into all of our lives with her incredible personality, and the unconditional love she gives to everyone she meets. Taking her role at Devachan Press very seriously, Shen was a model for our new book Acutonics for Dogs & Cats: Sound Healing for Animal Health.
Xena splits her time between Chicago and New Mexico, but remains uniquely connected to everything we do at the Acutonics Institute. She is truly a gift to us all, her big personality, and love of a good romp in the forest, winter or summer, keeps us moving and engaged even in the cold winter months. Xena also graciously served as a model for Acutonics for Dogs & Cats: Sound Healing for Animal Health. She asked to be paid for her efforts in jerky treats.
Chiron is named for the wise centaur that fostered many heroes, and was a healer, teacher, and shaman. Like his namesake, Chiron has a strong connection to Earth and nature, and often serves as a guide for the people in his life. He wanders the land during the day, as a fierce protector, but joins his human companions in the evening offering love, and connection. Chiron also served as a still life model for many of the illustrations featured in Acutonics for Dogs & Cats, and he proudly posed for the cover. He even lets us use the tuning forks on him, so unlike his namesake, he can recover quickly from his wounds.
"It was a gift to learn from a teacher (Sue Wadden) who has so much knowledge of classical acupuncture. I can now use tuning forks on my patients who prefer not to have needles."
