Acutonics® Self-Care Class  

Live on Zoom!     

Tuesday July 9th, 2024 from 6-9pm ET
Cost $88

Are you interested in Vibrational Healing, Jungian Psychological Archetypes, Acupuncture Meridians, the Physics of the Extracellular Matrix, Astrological Influences on Health, Karmic Potential, The Philosophy of Chinese Medical Energetics?

Acutonics® includes it all!

This class will help you to ignite the practice of self-care and the cultivation of self-compassion through Acutonics®

Class Description:
Self-compassion is the practice of showing yourself the same compassion you would show someone you care about in moments of failure or difficulty. It allows us to recognize our limitations and flaws while showing ourselves kindness as we accept them or work through them. Self-care is the practice of doing things to take care of your mind, body, and soul by engaging in activities that promote well-being and reduce stress. It reminds yourself and others that your needs are priority.

This class empowers you to treat yourself and your family members (children, pets, parents, spouses) using the Acutonics tuning forks, activating the practice of self-care while cultivating self-compassion. We will introduce the basic techniques of the application of the forks. And we will learn some locations and uses of acupuncture points.

This is a three hour long class with a short break.

Prerequisites: None

Equipment: You do not need to purchase this equipment to take the class. This class is not a sales pitch to buy equipment from us. However, you are more likely to benefit deeply from the class, if you are able to apply the forks to your own acupuncture points while you attend.
We will be discussing the use of the Ohm-Octave Acutonics® set in our Self-Care Class. In order to hit the Acutonics® forks without damaging them (they should never be activated by hitting furniture, the wall or body parts), we recommend using the belted Acuvator.

Acutonics® Level I: Sound Gates to Meridian Harmonics 

Live on Zoom!   

Friday, Saturday and Sunday
August 30-September 1st, 2024
10am-6:30 pm Eastern Time (with a lunch break)

This foundational class introduces the philosophy and cosmology of the Acutonics® integrative care methodology, while illuminating its scientific roots. The class explores the cross-cultural use of sound and its healing potential, the relationship between the human body and sound, and how to work with acupuncture points, meridian pathways, and areas of pain to improve health and well-being. Students develop expanded clinical skills by exploring a wide variety of conditions. In addition, we examine the concepts of cellular memory, sound imprinting, and the role of the Kidney as the guardian of our primordial Qi, all within the context of an East Asian medical model. The course also introduces new insights into the Eight Extraordinary Meridians, which provide a powerful therapeutic gateway for hands on work.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Find acupoints, palpate, and apply precision-calibrated tuning forks, using the Acutonics® Earth/Moon Professional and Solar 7th Sets
  • Develop an understanding of the relationship of the principals of the Five Elements to the cycles of nature, the organ and meridian systems, the emotional body, and the archetypal qualities of the heavenly bodies
  • Implement effective treatment protocols using the Extraordinary Vessels, the Microcosmic Orbit, the Windows to the Sky points, the Three Treasures, and other acupoints rich in therapeutic benefits


You do not need to purchase this equipment to take the class. This class is not a sales pitch to buy equipment from us. However, you are more likely to benefit deeply from the class, if you are able to apply the forks to your own acupuncture points while you attend.

Weight Loss: My Journey On An Integrated Approach

 Miami Beach Comprehensive Wellness Center is excited to announce an online, interactive webinar for healthcare providers of all backgrounds. Our patients often ask us questions about our personal experiences. They are interested in how we decided to pursue integrated medicine as a career and learn more about the things that we personally do to improve our health.

The Role of Oxalates in Chronic Pain, Accumulation of Heavy Metals, Mold Toxicity and Autism

 Are you interested in helping your clients who have pain? Are you interested in diet and lifestyle as the basis for longevity?

Plants make oxalates to protect themselves and several “healthy foods,” such as beets, spinach and tea are high in oxalates.  Oxalates can be aggravating to certain health conditions.  We will discuss which foods have high oxalate content, the medical pathophysiology of what can occur with oxalate accumulation and why physicians and diagnostic tests might fail to identify oxalates as a medical issue.  We will discuss Chinese Medicine energetics and diagnostic patterns and how oxalates might disrupt the flow of qi within the meridians.   We will also discuss the energetics of the goddess Hygiea and her relationship to preventative health, as well as astrological planetary and Zodiacal considerations.

An Introduction to Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO): An Integrated Approach To Managing A Commonly Missed GI Issue

Miami Beach Comprehensive Wellness Center is excited to announce an online, interactive webinar for healthcare providers of all backgrounds.  Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) is a type of bacterial imbalance in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.  The symptoms of SIBO are gas, bloating, constipation, or diarrhea, often associated with a wide array of symptoms outside of the GI tract.  Many patients with SIBO are told that have some form of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and thus never solve the root cause of their symptoms.  Learning to recognize and address SIBO is useful for practitioners of all specialties as it is far more common than what is recognized in mainstream medicine and often goes undiagnosed.

 The Five Elements, Metal: The Season of Autumn
The concept of Five Elements is a philosophical system of correspondence created in ancient China through the observations of nature.  Energetic cycles of life are explored through the dynamic interaction of elements/phases.  The five elements in Chinese medicine are wood, fire, earth, metal, and water.  Some people argue that the word “phase” is a better translation than “element,” as the Chinese word “xing” 行 indicates a process of moving, traveling and circulating, not a physical substance.  But most English references use the word “element” when the idea is translated.  Each of us has all five of these elements and ideally, they are in balance.  The elements can be interpreted as energetic vibrations which dynamically interact, balance, transform and generate reality.  Wood represents coming into being, sprouting and growing, spiraling upwards.  Fire is the spark of passion, transforming and transmuting physical substance.  Earth is a consolidating force, which nourishes and creates concrete reality.  Metal represents death, decay, loss, purification and the return to source.  Water illustrates the life force which is regenerative and procreative.
