Paiste Acutonic Planetary Symphonic Gongs & Hand Chimes
The gong is an age-old musical instrument that creates deep and profound vibrations when it is played. While the Acutonics tuning forks are designed to create micro-vibrations that are applied directly to channels within the body, the gongs are designed to effect transformation. They set a powerful stage for the therapeutic setting by dramatically shifting the molecular environment, setting up layers of vibrations in the air that resound through our emotional, psychological, physical, and spiritual bodies.
The Paiste Planetary gongs, as described by Donna Carrey co-founder of Acutonics Institute of Integrative Medicine LLC, the gongs resonate in harmony with the celestial bodies and communicate a distinct aspect of the Music of the Spheres, which was first written about by Pythagoras in the 6th Century BC. Their complex vibrations support the body’s natural frequencies to promote optimal health at a deep level. The planets also embody significant archetypal, astrological, and mythological associations, which provide a gateway back to our natural state of connectedness with the physical, emotional and spiritual world. When sounded, we physically connect to the strength and power of their resonance, sympathy and correspondences.
Each Planetary Gong has its own specific undertone and overtone thus assisting to harmonize feelings, stimulate growth, balance, assist with inner peace, and evolution of the nervous system. Used on their own or as part of a harmonic chakra alignment the gongs are integrated into individual sessions or group immersions such as planetary/moon rituals, family celebrations, space clearing, yoga studios, meditation, health communities, and other organizations desiring the depth of group coherence. You feel at home, peaceful, embraced by the energy of this sacred place. This is the kind of energy or at-one-ment that is embodied when we activate these powerful vibrational instruments.
We as human beings are comprised mainly of liquid, the gong vibrations move through all of our tissues, water and organs, releasing blockages, restoring homeostasis and creating a profound sense of peace and relaxation. As a sacred healing tool, gongs offer us a gift that is unlike any other. Many often feel as if they had experienced a state of bliss and an altered state of consciousness revealing epiphanies or of gaining clarity.
In the 1980s, the Paiste company started to develop a range of Planetary Gongs offered to sound healers and meditation practitioners. In appearance they look just like Symphonic Gongs, but when they are played they have a much stronger fundamental tone.

THE GONG SPIRIT SONG
“The Gong is the spirit song.
It is the primal whisper of the soul.
It’s sounds is the echo of the Original Word that created the world, the sound within all sounds.
Listen with outer and inner ears.
Feel its pulsations and let the millions of vibrations dance and flow through your senses.
You will become fearless, relaxed and awakened.
The ancients sought this experience on the tops of mountains and at the sacred places.
The voice of God would thunder in, spectacular strokes of lightning.
The clap of thunder – Bang! Shatter! Roll! Echo! – stopped all thought, stripped away pretense,
shook loose the deepest fears, and rejuvenated the nervous system.
It created strength, peace and healing.
The Gong is that sound. It is the flash of inner light.
The mallet is the will of the infinite,
the gong, the creation, and the sound is the spirit song,
the heartbeat of the soul.”
– Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga
