Acutonics From Galaxies to Cells | Planetary Science, Harmony and Medicine takes you on a journey through the solar system drawing connections between planetary archetypes, frequencies, correspondence theory, and Oriental medicine. The culmination of fifteen years of development, research, and documentation, into the connection between the natural world, body, mind, and spirit, and the role that they each play in the journey toward wholeness.
This work provides a comprehensive exploration into the therapeutic application of sound vibration to acupuncture points, trigger points, and points of pain. Planetary science, depth psychology, and Oriental medicine are effectively woven together, into a cohesive and accessible whole. Although it would be easy to classify this book as a textbook for the Acutonics modality, it is so much more. It weaves together scientific theories of how our bodies are influenced by the planets, philosophy, physics, music, myths, archetypal psychology, and research. The first three chapters lay the foundation for the use of planetary frequencies and musical intervals on the body. Tracing scientific research that spans hundreds of years.
Chapter 1: From Galaxies to Cells cites examples of research into the impact of planetary influences on human health. It examines how human physiology responds to external rhythms from both cosmic and geophysical environments and demonstrates that these responses can be measured at the cellular level.
Chapter 2: Myths, Archetypes and Music providing an exploration of resonant frequencies that resound in both the unconscious mind and in the collective unconscious. Myths give rise to archetypes, which can be viewed as deep harmonic resonances, which help us understand the ways in which the elements and the planets influence us. These powerful forces that are everywhere and in everything support the quest for a more unified whole.
Chapter 3: The Body is a Planetary Landscape explores the relationship between the human body, the natural world, and the planets. Laying the foundation for each of the subsequent chapters, which explore the planetary bodies in our solar system in great depth.
Chapters 4-15: Explores each of the major planetary bodies in our solar system. Each chapter follows the same structure: science, myths, archetypal qualities, music and specific clinical applications, are provided.
Chapters 16-17: The book concludes with two chapters that deepen our understanding of the use and application of tuning forks to acupuncture points, trigger points, and points of pain: Points and Meridians and an innovative exploration of the Eight Extraordinary Meridians.
