    On Wednesday, August 20th, from 7 - 8pm, Alaska Center for Acupuncture will present a FREE class on Acutonics with Guest Speaker Renee Howard, LMT

    Sound, music, rhythm, resonance and harmony are found within the universe and our bodies. Many philosophers, theologians, alchemists, mathematicians and astronomers have dedicated their lives to uncovering this mathematical, musical universe and its relationship with our human experience and physical well being. Designed by an Acupuncturist and classically trained Musician, Acutonics help attune the human body through sound vibrations. This system of Healing incorporates gongs, bells, bowls, specifically calibrated tuning forks and music, in conjunction with the meridian and chakra systems of the body to access greater states of internal balance and harmony.

    Please join us in a lesson of the healing art of Acutonics by hearing about:

    A brief history of the cross cultural uses of sound for healing
    Harnessing "Music of the Spheres" - What is Acutonics?
    Frequency and its effects on your body right down to the DNA
    Practical applications of sound healing in everyday life
    A group Acutonics "attunement" and meditation

    Please pre-register for this presentation by calling Alaska Center for Acupuncture at 745-8688 Space is limited, so call early!

    Hiking Photos from Devils Pass Trail - July 2008

    Click the link below for photos of our hiking trip from Devils Pass to Cooper Landing last weekend.

    Devils Pass Hiking Photos - Sam, Kevin and Friends

    The trip is about 27 miles long and took three days. We stayed in a cabin at the top of Devils Pass and another one at Juneau Lake.

    It rained all of day one, and we couldn't get the stove at the Devils Pass cabin to work, but it sure was nice to end the day inside and dry! Cabin camping is the way to go.
