The Nature of Sound: An Introduction to Facial Soundscapes: Harmonic Renewal™

Sunday, 11/05 at 11:15 AM to 12:05 PM

Everything that moves, from the smallest molecule to the planets in their unceasing orbits, generates a vibration that we may consider to be sound. The ear can detect frequencies ranging from 20 to 20,000 cycles per second. The human body “hears” by means of its skin and the 256 bones of the skeleton, and can sense the vibrations by means of its watery consistency: our bodies are comprised of 80% water, and sound travels 4 times faster in water than in air. Consequently, sound vibration communicates with the Water element via the Kidney meridian, permeating the most profound level of essence – the jing. In this experiential seminar, gentle and non-invasive vibrational treatments for face and body, utilizing Acutonics® Earth, Moon and Sun tuning forks, will be introduced. These protocols serve as an alternative treatment for needle-phobic patients, and can be easily integrated into an acupuncture practice.
