Proven techniques that support the well-being and overall health of dogs and cats are provided in this easy to follow illustrated guide that demonstrates the unique energy balancing system known as Acutonics. Rooted in Oriental Medicine and sound healing principles, Acutonics incorporates the use of tuning forks to apply specific musical intervals on or above acupuncture points, and chakras. Photos, illustrations, point descriptions and an in depth-exploration of the use and application of sound vibration to the rarely explored yet profoundly effective eight extraordinary meridians.
Sound vibrations provide a rich source of balance and replenishment for the body and the spirit and easily access imbalances that may result in discomfort and illness. The natural resonance that exists between animals and humans can be enhanced through the use and application of this non-invasive methodology designed to promote harmony, balance and wellness in our companion animals.
Acutonics for Dogs & Cats offers a thorough review of the foundational principles of Acutonics combined with profound insight, specific information, and practical techniques for applying this extraordinary system of healing to our work with beloved animal companions. As a holistic veterinarian, Asian bodywork therapist, energy healer, and practitioner of Acutonics in both animals and people, I have found Acutonics to be a rich and powerful method of healing. Animals that are resistant to acupuncture are often receptive to the soothing vibrations of tuning forks. I am thrilled to now have a resource to recommend to clients! The authors approach the subject with true appreciation, respect and understanding for the sensitivity of animals. I highly recommend this book to all professionals and laypersons that value the health and well-being of our animal friends.—Melinda Franceschini, DVM, PhD, dipl. ABT, Mystic Stream Wellness for People and Animals
Acutonics for Dogs and Cats is timely, well-written, beautifully illustrated, and a welcome addition to the growing awareness of how sound can be of positive or negative effect on all our nervous systems. This book brings forward, in an easily accessible fashion, the positive use of sound frequencies.—Joshua Leeds, author of Through a Dog’s Ear and The Power of Sound
This is a pivotal time in loving animal care and Acutonics For Dogs and Cats is a significant contribution. Paul and Jude Ponton provide an accessible introduction to vibrational medicine and the use of tuning forks to benefit the health of our dogs and cats.—Amy Snow & Nancy Zidonis, co-founders, Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute
"When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, my world went into a crazy spin. I was suddenly thrust into a foreign land of doctors, drugs, and medical treatments. Elle a recent breast cancer survivor herself, offered to help me with Acutonics sound healing treatments. Not knowing what to expect, I dragged myself in after my first round of chemotherapy. Elle went to work treating parts of my internal body like my liver to not only help with the side effects of the drugs, but to balance and ground me as well."
