This comprehensive exploration into the application of sound vibration to acupuncture points, trigger points, and points of pain provides an in-depth scientific exploration of the use of sound vibration in a therapeutic setting. Providing a bold, innovative, investigation of the human bodies relationship to our solar system, this new book incorporates both the spiritual traditions and science of Oriental medicine. Planetary science, depth psychology, and Oriental medicine all have a place in this work, and 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, modern theories of physics and fields, music, myths, archetypal psychology, and research. The first three chapters of the book 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 provides specific examples of research into the impact of planetary influences on human health. Exploring how human physiology responds to external rhythms from both cosmic and geophysical environments, and demonstrating 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. Each planetary chapter follows the same structure presenting science, myths, archetypal qualities, and music and specific highly relevant clinical applications.
The book concludes with a chapter on Points and Meridians that demonstrates the application and rational for the use of specific tuning forks on acupuncture points and meridians, and a Chapter that provides an innovative new look at the Eight Extraordinary Meridians.
Specific examples of the use and application of tuning forks to treat a wide variety of conditions commonly seen in clinical practice are provided.
There are more that 350 photos including many beautiful images from NASA/JPL, and detailed treatment photographs that demonstrate the use and application of these tools in a clinical setting.
This book was published with a new case study companion guide.
