Sound Healing with Acutonics tuning forks and gongs has been the passionate focus of Barrie Andrews for eight years. Richly rewarding for the senses, it induces deep relaxation and pleasure, which she finds vital to effective therapeutic massage. Acutonics uses tuning forks on the body, especially on the acupressure points, and represents an integration of bodywork approaches for the physical and energetic bodies, as well as Asian and western systems of healing.
• Innovative Acutonics Sound Healing integrated with Medical Massage

All session lengths refer to actual time on the massage table. For new clients, include thirty minutes extra for intake and transition time; for existing clients, allow an additional fifteen minutes.
60 Minute Session:
This session length is best reserved for specific conditions such as pregnancy, an urgent session when more time is not available, or for tight budgets, and may be more focused on a therapeutic approach.
90 Minute Standard Session:
For the majority of people, this allows clients to stay in a deep processing state and get the most out of sessions, and includes an integrated approach of sound healing and massage. It is the preferred length for new clients, as well.
Two Hour Session:
This can be a fabulous treat, or, for some people it simply works best for their circumstances, such as for chronic conditions, recent injury, or infrequent sessions.
