|Erin Taylor, Acutonics Practitioner & Instructor, Registered Acupuncturist, Doctor of TCM|
Erin Taylor began her studies 19 years ago at University of Calgary, where she received a BSC in Kinesiology. Her interest in the physical body was the beginning of her journey. Understanding that we were more than the physical, her next stop led her into the study of traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture where she began her training 11 years ago. In this time, Erin has worked as a teacher, clinical supervisor and TCM doctor at the Calgary College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. Erin’s journey did not stop there. Inspired to understand what existed beyond the energy body and the nature of reality and who we are, led her toward the study of vibration, frequency and sound. Through her own research, she began to see the depth of sound and frequency in that everything is vibrating, and that vibration creates sound. Everything is connected and interconnected through this web of sound. This led Erin to study the Acutonics system. The Acutonics system is, a system of vibrational sound healing rooted in Oriental Medicine and philosophy that utilizes tuning forks and symphonic gongs tuned to the planets. Acutonics connects body, mind and soul in the journey toward optimal health, harmonic attunement with all things in the Uni-Verse.
Erin understands the power of this healing modality and has fully integrated sound healing into her practice. In addition she has and has recently completed her level 1-4 teacher training and will be fully credited to teach all 9 levels of the Acutonics system by the end of June 2015. Erin’s intention is to bring this powerful healing modality to Canada and to guide individuals who are interested in sound healing and the Acutonics system. Erin teaches monthly Acutonics workshops and study groups for students and practitioners.
In addition, Erin has specialized in a deep energetic known as the 8 Extraordinary Vessels. She has been studying and working with this energetic for the last decade and has been a part of her practice and thesis work. She has learned and experienced the transformational power of these Vessels, and how they assist in the alchemy of emotional energies and patterns. In addition Erin has experienced the profound nature of the 8 Extraordinary Vessels and their connection to creation and Soul Remembering.
