Acutonics® Sound Healing & The Music of the Spheres

Acutonics® is an integrated approach to natural health that incorporates ancient Taoist teachings of the meridians, pre-meridians, and the immortal body with sound. Developed at the Kairos Institute of Sound Healing, this energy-based non-invasive treatment is similar to acupuncture. Precision calibrated tuning forks are applied to specific acupuncture and acupressure points to access the body's Meridian and Chakra energy systems. These tuning forks represent a natural harmonic series based on the orbital properties of the Earth, Moon, Sun and planets. They are used on specific points, with high transformational impact on the physical, emotional, and spiritual body.


Since the beginning of time, whether through oral tradition, cave paintings, or ancient texts, people throughout the world have been fascinated by the mysteries of the Sun, Moon, and planets. Our ancestors knew by instinct that what happened in the skies above was related to life on Earth, and that if we understood the heavens, we could gain a deeper understanding of ourselves. This basic belief gave birth to the sciences of alchemy, astronomy, astrology, medicine, and physics. Today, the planets continue to intrigue us. Space exploration is a reality, and our understanding of the known Universe continues to expand exponentially with numerous discoveries of new planetary systems; we witness science fiction become science fact.

Everything in the Universe vibrates, from the smallest particle, to the planets in our solar system, to the billions of stars in the Milky Way Galaxy, creating patterns of geometric waveforms, frequencies, intervals, and sounds. In Western Culture, The Music of the Spheres, or the concept of these heavenly harmonies, though existing eternally, can be traced back to 6th century BCE and Pythagoras, who recognized that sounds are subject to mathematical laws and proportions, and were the very foundation of the Universe.

In the development of the Acutonics System the powerful sounds of the Universe are brought into the world of natural health through the use of precision calibrated planetary tuning forks. Acutonics utilizes acupuncture points that are articulated in the study of Oriental Medicine and from Indian healing tradition the major and minor chakras, as well as the etheric field. Acupressure points and chakras provide noninvasive access into these core energetic systems within the body. The planets provide musical intervals, archetypes, psychological depth, and correspondences that help us to fine-tune the therapeutic musical intervals that are applied to the body.

We are rooted, sustained, eternally fed, and nourished by the powers of the Earth, and it is our access to cosmological wisdom, the heavens, and the microcosm that sets us on a journey of transformation, reaching beyond self or the macrocosm. Within us is an energetic pathway known as the microcosmic orbit. This dimensional pathway running along our spine and the front of our body encompasses all the chakras. At the center is our heart, not unlike the Sun, which is at the center of our solar system, feeding and sustaining us.

Donna Carey co-creator of the Acutonics system was Clinical Dean at the Northwest Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NIAOM) in Seattle, Washington. Acutonics was introduced in the continuing education program at this and other acupuncture schools. She also incorporated treatment protocols at more than fourteen community health clinics that Carey created and directed. She sought a way to bring the beneficial impacts of Oriental Medicine, a six thousand year old modality, to critically ill clients, the elderly, young children, or those who were just fearful of needless. This non-invasive, non-needle modality embraces the philosophical tenants and spiritual traditions of Oriental Medicine in combination with specific sound vibration. Musical intervals, with their own unique healing properties, are delivered directly to highly transformative points of the body with tuning forks instead of needles. Utilizing her background in both eastern and western medicine, significant time was spent in research and development. Case studies were well documented. Carey was not satisfied until she found a manufacturing technique that could meet exacting standards for quality, sustain and resonance, and treatment protocols that continually demonstrated powerful, highly beneficial results.

Although the Acutonics System draws heavily on the principals of Oriental Medicine, our comprehensive methodology is accessible to healthcare practitioners from many different backgrounds. Students explore the key concepts and inner traditions of Oriental Medicine, Energy Medicine, and Sound Healing. Our certification program was born more than fifteen years ago from our direct experience as educators and practitioners, and our personal commitment to reawaken the healing connections that bring art and spirit back to medicine. Since the first class was taught at NIAOM thousands of practitioners have been trained, and the Acutonics Certification Program, which provides in-depth training in this powerful methodology was created. In the US we are a continuing education provider for Acupuncturists and Massage and Bodywork practitioners. Our new book, Acutonics From Galaxies to Cells will be published in 2010, and our first book, Acutonics®: There’s No Place Like Ohm, Sound Healing, Oriental Medicine and the Cosmic Mysteries, is currently in its 2nd edition.

Acutonics has been successfully integrated into western medical environments, hospitals, and integrative care clinics. There are thousands of case studies that speak to the efficacy of this modality, which reminds us of the mystery and grace, of the universe, and opens us to the infinite possibility of reconnecting with Source, the ultimate source of original harmony.

In future articles we will discuss specific treatment protocols, acupuncture, acupressure, and trigger points to promote healing, as well as some of the more common conditions that you can learn to treat at home.
