The Mercury gong activates a state of mental acuity and clarity, reaching deep into the confines of our nervous system to sharpen and brighten our senses. From the misty and fleeting realm of thoughts and dreams, we are brought into the material world of physical sensation and vocal articulation. In a therapeutic setting, the Mercury gong is used to dispel confusion and mental disorders that are based in repetitive, neurotic thought patterning. The sound bath provided by Mercurial vibrations intercepts a racing mind, improves our ability to discern what is right or wrong from a multiplicity of choices, and awakens a sluggish nervous system, improving bodily coordination and our ability to vocally articulate our needs and desires. Mercurial energy also works toward balancing thyroid function. The movement is from confused and erratic decision-making processes and disjunctive bodily functions to mental clarity, eloquence and physical grace.
"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"
