What is Sonopuncture (aka Acutonics, Vibrational Medicine; Sound Therapy)?
Have you always liked the idea of an acupuncture treatment but have an aversion to needles? Yeah, me too! Or, perhaps you are a die-hard acupuncture advocate, but would like to avoid the irritation that the treatment brings to your skin.
Now you can receive the same effectiveness of acupuncture with Sonopuncture. Sonopuncture is also known as Acutonics, Vibrational Medicine, or even Sound Therapy. Regardless of the name, the principle is the same as that of acupuncture, by stimulating the body to heal itself using various acupuncture points on the body. Research has shown using ultrasound stimulation, via tuning forks, applied to specific acupuncture points for a minute or less, have the same effectiveness as traditional acupuncture. The ultrasound waves penetrate deep into the body’s tissues to generate healing and can be used for people of all ages safely and non-invasively.
What can Sonopuncture be used to treat?
Believe it or not, just about everything. Traditional Chinese medicine holds that there are as many as 2,000 different acupuncture points on the human body. Dr. Skip‘s Doctorate in Oriental Medicine has trained him on the various points and which to use depending on the ailment. Dr. Skip will apply tuning forks to the specific acupuncture points depending on the need and the condition being treated.
While Sonopuncture can be used for literally hundreds of conditions, here is a short list of common treatments I perform in my office regularly:
- Chronic Pain
- Stress / Depression / Anxiety
Dr. Skip was originally trained in traditional acupuncture with the use of acupuncture needles. However, years ago, after Dr. Skip trained in Sonopuncture at a monastery just outside of Nice in the South of France, he tried it in his practice and has seen firsthand it’s effectiveness. While Sonopuncture it is more labor intensive on the practitioner, than traditional acupuncture, the effectiveness and non-invasiveness this therapy brings, is what made Dr. Skip make the transition in his practice. We know that once you experience Sonopuncture, the healing it brings, and the relaxation, you will schedule your next appointment.
