Our methodology for the therapeutic use and application of Tuning Forks known as Acutonics was developed more than seventeen years ago by Donna Carey, while she was Clinical Dean at the Northwest Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Seattle where it was used extensively in student clinics. Eventually, an entire certification program evolved through the combined efforts of Donna, Dr. Ellen F. Franklin, and many of our senior faculty members. Today more than fifty Acutonics Instructors and hundreds of practitioners contribute to this body of knowledge. Acutonics is now taught around the globe.
This energy-based, non-invasive approach is rooted in Oriental medicine, psychology, science and sound. Precision calibrated tuning forks are applied on or over acupuncture points. trigger points, or points of pain. The tuning forks represent a natural harmonic series that is based on the orbital properties of the Earth, Moon, Sun and planets. The sound waves of the forks travel deeply into the body along energy pathways that have been proven to impact the physical and emotional body. The rich resonance and vibration of these tuning forks connects with and supports the body's natural frequencies, stimulates and balances the body's physical and subtle energy field, and promotes wellness, deep inner harmony and a feeling of Harmonic Attunement® or at-one-ment.
"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."
