For more than 15 years Donna Carey has been using sound in her clinical practice with extraordinary results. It was her combined understanding of the deep, lasting, and powerful impact that sound and vibration play in healing that led to the development of the Acutonics® Tuning Forks and the integration of other sound healing tools such as Tibetan Bowls, didgeridoos, sound plates and Planetary gongs. From her experience and the many case studies we've seen from our practitioners, it is clear that this integrated healing system is having profound and lasting results on the people who have been treated.
We've seen stroke victims regain mobility and paraplegics begin to feel pain, where there has been no sensation for many years. A Bell's Palsy client experienced her face realigning as twitching ceased, and long-time insomniacs have found it possible to sleep. Chronic and debilitating sinusitis has been eliminated with Ohm Fork treatments, and more importantly clients can be taught self-care and application. Asthma has also been treated with great affect, allowing people to get off steroids and inhalers. More recently, we have seen life long, chronic and debilitating intergenerational family patterns begin to break down with a treatment program that integrates use of the Acutonics® Planetary and Chiron Forks.

Effect of Acutonics® for Heart Palpitations
Frances Dachelet, RN, LAc
ABSTRACT: This case study demonstrates the effective use of Acutonics in treatment of a 40 year-old man with intermittent heart palpitations for a duration of one month. Western medical work-up revealed no specific functional heart disorders. The patient also experienced anxiety and stress and used alcohol to diffuse them. There is a family history of alcohol related problems. Acutonics treatment was directed at calming his spirit, slowing his heart rate and respiration, and strengthening his kidneys to anchor his heart and lungs. Acutonics tuning forks were applied to points on the body for grounding, nourishing and calming the heart, for tonifying the kidney energy and balancing intergenerational patterns. After the first treatment, the patient reported feeling calm and rested with cessation of heart palpitations. Subsequent treatments were directed at balancing the emotional-spiritual roots of the patient’s anxiety and familiar issues. The patient reported no return of the palpitations and much less intense reactions to stressors. He has stopped using alcohol and is considering programs to support him in continuing to avoid alcohol use.
KEY WORDS: Intermittent heart palpitations, calming, kidneys, grounding, calming, tonifying, emotionalspiritual, intergenerational patterns, liver qi stagnation, and shen disturbance.
Effect of Acutonics® for Fibrocystic Breasts
Susan Goldstone, LAc, Dipl Ac, MA, LMBT
ABSTRACT: Fibrocystic breast disease is a frequently diagnosed disorder. This case report illustrates that Acutonics has been successful in treating fibrocystic breasts. A 44 year-old woman had been receiving acupuncture treatment for benign breast cysts for six months with some improvement in symptoms (decreased size of the cysts and decreased pain). She then began Acutonics treatments to continue to deal with the fibrocystic breast disease and secondary complaints of PMS and stress resulting from a “type-A workaholic” lifestyle. The patient’s energetic imbalances were assessed as: Liver Qi and Blood Stagnation, Spleen Qi deficiency, and blockage of the heart and throat charkas. Acutonics tuning forks were applied to points to open the chest, circulate stagnant emotional energy, move the liver qi and blood, nourish the spleen energy and open the heart and throat charkas. Points were treated to promote healing and nurturing energy to help the patient to open to new ways of seeing herself. After the initial Acutonics treatment the patient felt calm and her spirits were lifted. After 2 more treatments at one month intervals the patient reported feeling emotionally balanced and also reported a significant decrease in the size and texture of the largest of the cysts. The patient continued to experience a feeling of emotional shifting to greater balanced and relief of symptoms of stress. The breast cysts continued to decrease in size.
KEY WORDS: Fibrocystic breasts, pms, blood stagnation, liver qi deficiency, Type A personality, and energy blocks.
