Acutonics incorporates the use of precision-calibrated medical tuning forks.  These tuning forks are calibrated to frequencies that are especially healing to the body, and are applied on or over specific acupuncture points to access the body’s meridian and chakra energy systems.

Who does Acu-tonics benefit?

Acu-tonics is remarkably helpful for children, because they are so open, receptive, and sound-oriented.  Acu-tonics can also be profoundly effective for adults.

What conditions respond to it?

In children and adults, acu-tonics helps to ground, calm, and clear.

The nervous system is highly responsive to the sound frequencies of acu-tonics.  Both sympathetic (“fight or flight”) and parasympathetic systems (“rest and digest”) exhibit something of a “reset” after hearing these frequencies.   Because of the nervous system response, we see improvements in:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • clear thinking
  • creativity
  • digestion
  • relaxation
  • insomnia
  • PTSD-related conditions
  • pain
  • and more

How does it work?

The tuning fork is struck on an activator called an “Acutonics Acuvator” and then placed near the ears.  In a treatment, the forks are also placed on or over acupuncture points, chakras, or points of pain.

The sound waves of the forks vibrate and travel deeply into the body along physical and energy pathways that have proven to impact both the soma (body) and psyche.  The tuning forks’ rich resonance and vibration connects with and supports the body’s natural frequencies, stimulates and balances the body’s physical and subtle energy field, promotes wellness, deep inner harmony, and a sense of well-being, attunement, and homeostasis.


Acutonics embraces both ancient wisdom traditions and new paradigms in health and wellness.  It is firmly based in science and strongly supported by case study documentation and research.  This non-invasive methodology is proven to reduce pain, improve sleep, relieve digestive distress disorders, and ameliorate symptoms associated with severe stress, including anxiety and depression.

The Ohm Unison

The acu-tonic tuning forks at Chiyu Center are calibrated to the Ohm Unison.   We have two levels of Ohm tuning forks — one is simply an octave deeper than the other.

The Ohm tone represents the Earth traveling around the Sun through the four seasons in its 365-day yearly orbit as calculated by Johannes Kepler.  This is the frequency that is replicated often in Nature.  Ohm’s deep grounding quality helps you to integrate the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of your nature so that you can shift your energy to center to promote feelings of serenity, connection, and peace.

The Earth also represents our ability to be comfortable in our bodies.  The Ohm frequency is grounding and balancing, providing support in times of stress, or when you experience a sense of deficiency, poor sleep, or tension.

Ohm Unison is an excellent tool to promote balance throughout the entire body.  The deeper Ohm tuning fork is even more grounding than the regular Ohm frequency, and it is often preferred by people with anxiety or other nervous conditions.

Where did Acutonics originate?

The Acutonics tuning forks were created by The Acutonics Institute of Integrative Medicine, LLC.  The methodology was initially developed at an acupuncture college and integrated into many community health clinics, where it proved highly effective.

What are Chakras?

Although the body contains hundreds of locations of concentrated energy, there are seven major energy centers known as Chakras, a Sanskrit word that means Wheel.  These wheels, or energy centers, are like spinning vortexes located in the etheric body and they are an extension of the physical body.  They align with the acupuncture points along the center of the body and interrelate with the nerve and endocrine system.  Chakras are used to support the physical, emotional, and spiritual.  They work as regulators in the journey toward optimal health and illumination.

While some religions acknowledge chakras, there is nothing religious about a chakra.  Healing at the chakra level is effective regardless of belief, and treatment of chakras is just as compatible religions and faith as receiving any science-based conventional medical treatment.

What is the Science behind Acu-tonics?

Albert Einstein famously said, “Everything in Life is Vibration.”  This means that all things, at their minutest level, are vibrations, or energies.  This statement includes things that we perceive as solids, such as our bodies and internal organs.  Sound, like light, is simply a way we perceive vibration.  There are different resonances of sound just like there are different frequencies of light.  When our body is out of health, it has a different resonance than a healthy body.

Acutonics, as a form of sound therapy, re-harmonizes the resonances of the body to a healthier frequency.  This healthy frequency is calibrated to that of the Earth traveling around the Sun in a full orbit.  Both sets of tuning forks are at the Ohm frequency.
