"The Facial Soundscapes™ tuning fork facial was toning and uplifting, as well as relaxing. It is a totally unique experience. My saggy upper lids were lifted, as well as heaviness in my lower face, by just one treatment, and the effect lasted for several days."

What is Facial Soundscapes?
Drawing upon her experience both as the creator of Constitutional Facial Renewal™ and an Acutonics® practitioner, Ms. Wakefield, in collaboration with her teaching partner, MichelAngelo, Director of Astrological Medicine & Musical Studies, Acutonics®, has formulated a vibrational facial protocol utilizing the entire range of Acutonics® planetary tuning forks that is gentle, powerful and non-invasive. Using the Five Elements, this treatment is tailor-made for each person’s constitutional archetype. An entire topical herbal protocol accompanies the treatment.
Training in these innovative facial treatments is provided in a series of 4 seminars, Facial Soundscapes: Harmonic Renewal™, Planetary Soundscapes: The Cosmic Countenance™, The Transcendent Face™ and The Fibonacci Face™ which are presented from time to time in locations through the United States (please see the teaching schedule below for future events, and the Facial Soundscapes Practitioner Training page for course details) .
A number of studies have been conducted on the vibrational healing properties of tuning forks. The Pythagorean monochord vibrates to overtones that can be detected in the chanting of Tibetan monks, the sounding board of a piano, an operatically-trained voice, musical instruments, and a variety of sounds in nature. Tuning forks are made to bear these resonances, and in certain intervals can be applied to acupuncture points and muscles to lift, tonify, disperse and firm the face.
MichelAngelo, co-creator, of the Soundscapes training modules and treatment protocols, and Advisor, Astrological Medicine and Musical Studies, Kairos Institute of Sound Healing, LLC (Acutonics), discusses various aspects of the system:
Venus and Mars; "Needles are from Mars; tuning forks are from Venus."
Music of the Spheres; healing the body with cosmic sound
Planetary Vibrational Medicine; astrological vibrational healing with tuning forks
Click here for a video demonstration by Mary Elizabeth Wakefield, L. Ac., M. S., M. M., Co-creator of the Soundscapes training modules and treatment protocols, of a basic balancing facial using Mars/Venus tuning forks.
This unique modality, based upon the principles of Chinese medicine, addresses certain areas of the face which are difficult to treat with needles, like the neck, chin and jowls. Tuning forks can "lift" the pterygoids, masseter and platysma muscles by means of select vibrating intervals. For instance, the interval of a second disperses, a third sedates, and a fifth tonifies. These vibrating forks are applied gently to the face, and are relaxing and pleasantly tingly.
The Acutonics® tuning forks which are used in these treatments are fashioned from high-quality, space-grade metals, and are vibrationally calibrated to the frequencies of the Sun, Moon and the other 8 planets, as well as Chiron, Nibiru, Sedna, and the 4 female asteroids.
The Acutonics® system of sound healing is a distillation of the theories of Pythagoras, Johannes Kepler, and Swiss scientist Hans Cousto, given this particular form and further refined by Donna Carey, Ph. D., L. Ac. of the Kairos Institute of Sound Healing, LLC.
Each tuning fork is tuned to a natural harmonic series based on the orbital properties of the planet or heavenly body. These forks resonate in harmony with the celestial bodies and each communicates a distinct aspect of the Music of the Spheres. They are used to correct imbalances, uncover emotions, stimulate growth, development, and transformation and facilitate inner harmony and wholeness.
Tuning forks are applied to specific acupuncture and acupressure points to access the body's meridian and chakric energy systems, as well as to points and regions on the face. The tuning fork is struck, then placed on the body or held near the ears. The sound waves of the forks vibrate and travel deeply into the body along energy pathways, effecting human physiology and reaching places not easily accessed by traditional medicine.
