No Acupuncture Needles with Acutonics

Jan 02, 2016 08:49AM ● By Mary Burke-Kelly

Acupuncture has become more widely accepted by the American public as a proven means to address pain and addictions in a natural way since its initial introduction in the mid 1970s. Relatively unknown is the method of non-invasive (non-needle) acupuncture using sound vibrations from tuning forks on acupuncture points called Acutonics. Acupuncture and/or Acutonics both seek to open and balance the energy flow in the body, or qi, in order to heal not only the physical, but also the emotional and mental causes of disease. It seeks to help the person remember how to be whole (anemesis) rather than looking for a specific cause of disease and only addressing that (diagnosis).

Now for those that want the benefits of acupuncture but are needle-phobic, there is an equally effective, relaxing option. A 2013 research study showed that a five-minute session using specific frequencies of tuning forks on specific acupuncture points yields the same average reduction in pain as a 40-minute needle acupuncture treatment. When acupuncturists are trained to incorporate Acutonics into their normal needle procedures, pain reduction was increased exponentially. Patients can receive a combination treatment from acupuncturists that have been trained in adding Acutonics to their practice.

Most illness today is caused by stress, and each Acutonics session is designed to address particular concerns and reduce stress as it affects the individual. Digestion, mobility, immune system, depression, fear and failure to move forward are just a few examples of the needs addressed by moving stuck energy into a flowing motion and returning us to balance.

Mary Burke-Kelly is a certified Acutonics practitioner and instructor in Hurst, Texas, where she teaches CEU classes in Acutonics. For more information, call 817-918-3939  or visit
