Sound Healing

“Future medicine will be the medicine of frequencies.” Albert Einstein

What is Sound Healing?

Have you ever been so affected by a song that it brought you to tears? Do you feel relaxed at the ocean hearing the crashing waves? Have you the felt unsteady from the rumble of a passing train travel up through your feet and even up your spine? Then you realize how powerful sound can be on a human physically, mentally and emotionally! 

The principle of Sound Healing asserts that through the application of targeted sound, vibration and frequency, energies in the human body can be helped to align to their natural rhythm. Because our bodies are composed of nearly 70% water, we are the perfect conduit for sound frequencies to travel, react and communicate. Matter, including the human body, vibrates always, and at various frequencies. It is no exception that when various frequencies of sound are introduced to a human, harmony and homeostasis ensues. 

A Sound Healing session can use specific instruments, music, tones, and other vibrations both on and off the body. It can involve using specialized sound frequencies [like the Acutonics protocol] to create a therapeutic atmosphere to promote deep rest, nervous system rebalancing, and emotional release. Ideally, a hypnotic, meditative or theta brainwave state is created and when the body relaxes, healing can begin. 

Healing with sound has been used throughout history for thousands of years. It is a growing field of integrative medicine used to create positive effects on shifts in our mood and as a form of therapy to heal the body, mind, and spirit. Best of all, it’s safe, subtle and effective.

What is Acutonics Sound Healing? 

Acutonics is a unique energy-based, non-invasive approach for healing using the vibratory energy created through sound. Frequencies create subtle, yet powerful effects on the physiological, emotional and spiritual bodies. Unlike other tuning forks, Acutonics combines the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Energy Medicine, Physics and Sound Healing all in one. Each session is tailored to the needs of the individual. 

How Does it Work?

Tuning Forks are applied to acupuncture points, chakras and/or the biofield creating sound waves that travel deep into the body. When relaxing through sound and vibration, your body is affected on a cellular level, opening energy flow to move you back toward healthy alignment. Using sound and vibration to re-harmonize and attune the human energy field, Acutonics is a non-invasive yet powerful, transformational healing system that can help with a wide range of disharmonies and illnesses. This protocol is also a fantastic complement to other energy work including Reiki, and both are often used in a session.

The Acutonics Institute of Integrative Medicine has trained allied health care professionals worldwide in the use of Acutonics Tuning Forks for almost thirty years. Practitioners are trained in using a powerful set of tuning forks and methods to integrate into their practice. What makes Acutonics forks different from others is that they are tuned to the scientifically calculated orbital properties of the Earth, Moon, Sun and Planets also known as the Music of the Spheres.

The difference in Acutonics Tuning Forks is obvious the first time you feel them on your body. Their rich resonance and lasting vibration connects with and supports the body’s natural frequencies, while simultaneously stimulating and balancing one’s energy. The frequencies of these specially calibrated tuning forks stimulate Qi and restore balance, creating a harmonious environment to encourage self-healing.

I had a great night after my reiki/tuning combo! On my way home the ride vibed and I finally completely relaxed.

I have been working with Kim in conjunction with my Biomagnetism treatments for symptoms of Lyme Disease and co-infections. My main symptoms are fatigue/exhaustion and back pain. Kim’s treatments have helped me tremendously!

I wasn't sure that tuning forks would offer me something more than my usual reiki sessions, but I am so glad I tried them because they have taken my sessions to a new level of total wellness.
