Has anyone used Acutonics during Chemotherapy? I've never heard of it before but someone is recommending it to a family member during upcoming chemo treatment.

A cursory search of the internet says that its sound vibration that draws on Oriental medicine, psychology, science and the arts. It uses sound healing tools that are used by health care practitioners around the world to promote health and well-being.

Any insights, pro and con, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I had never heard of this but a quick search yielded quite a few links. Many of the links likened it to acupuncture without needles. Whatever you do, please run it by your oncologist and good luck to you.
