Acutonics is a healing modality that works with selected acupressure points to access the meridians, craniosacral rhythms and organ systems of the body with resonate calibrated tuning forks. This rejuvenating work uses sound and vibration as a healing tool and realigns the energetic systems of the body. 


I have studied through level IV with West Coast Acutonics and Kairos Institute of sound healing in New Mexico and work with 36 different tuning forks in my practice. I have been a bodyworker for over 20 years and have found Acutonics to be a profoundly deep form of healing.

Sessions are especially beneficial  for balancing meridians, supporting organ systems and provide deep levels of relaxation and grounding.


I offer hour and hour and a half sessions in my office in Mendocino by appointment only.

1 hour- 110.00

1.5 hour 150.00

In the words of the founders of Acutonics...

"Acutonics is an integrated approach to health care and education that incorporates ancient Taoist teachings of the meridians, pre-meridians, and the immortal body with sound. By blending our knowledge of Oriental Medicine, Cosmological Studies, Depth Psychology, Contemporary Science, and Sound Healing principals, a powerful and innovative methodology has evolved that is deeply harmonic and spiritually based. This form of energy medicine is based on sound vibration. The powerful sounds of the Universe are brought into the therapeutic world through the use of precision calibrated planetary tuning forks and symphonic planetary gongs to help you achieve optimal health. 


These tuning forks represent a natural harmonic series based on the orbital properties of the Earth, Moon, Sun and planets. The sound waves of the forks vibrate and travel deeply into the body along energy pathways, affecting human physiology and reaching places not easily accessed. Their rich resonance and vibration connects with and supports the body's natural frequencies, stimulates and balances the body's physical and subtle energy field, and promotes wellness and deep inner harmony.


In the therapeutic environment we also utilize Planetary Gongs, Tibetan Bowls, drums, rattles, and fine classical music that evokes the archetypal and mythic qualities of the planets. Through correspondence and sympathy the planets have a profound connection to Oriental Medicine, the natural cycles of the universe, and to the Earth itself.


Our approach to wellness is rooted in the spiritual and wisdom traditions of Oriental Medicine, which recognizes that most diseases arise from a core blockage in our energy. Acupuncture points provide noninvasive access into the core energetic systems within the body. The planets provide musical intervals, archetypes, and correspondences that help us to fine-tune the therapeutic frequency that is applied to the body with tuning forks.

We are rooted, sustained, eternally fed, and nourished by the powers of the Earth and it is our access to cosmological wisdom, the heavens, and the microcosm that sets us on a journey of transformation, reaching beyond self or the macrocosm, as above so below, as within so without."

The language of sound and the physical impact of sound on the body is discussed in this video which features Ellen F. Franklin and senior Acutonics faculty members Katie Mink, LAc and Laurie Herron. Acutonics tuning forks promote a feeling of harmony, resonance, a sense of balance, and at-one-ment. As sound moves in ripples through the meridians of the body there is a deep sense of peace.
