Dr. Ben Johnson:
I created Osmosis because I wanted to transform the aesthetic industry. Let’s help people move away from weakening the skin and instead create a partnership that empowers healing and remodeling.

ACUTONICS INTEGRATED MEDICINE (from Acutonics.com)
Acutonics is an integrated approach to health care grounded in Oriental medicine, psychology, science, cosmological studies and sound healing principles. This effective non-invasive methodology works with vibratory energy created through sound. The sounds of planetary bodies are brought into the clinical setting through the use of precision calibrated tuning forks, symphonic gongs, and hand chimes.
“The Facial Soundscapes™ tuning fork facial was toning and uplifting, as well as relaxing. It is a totally unique experience. My saggy upper lids were lifted, as well as heaviness in my lower face, by just one treatment, and the effect lasted for several days.”
AG, New York City
Chi-Akra Center founder Mary Elizabeth Wakefield and the creator of Constitutional Facial Renewal™, in collaboration with her teaching partner, MichelAngelo, Director of Astrological Medicine & Musical Studies, Acutonics®, has formulated a vibrational facial protocol utilizing the entire range of Acutonics® planetary tuning forks that is gentle, powerful and non-invasive. Using the Five Elements, this treatment is tailor-made for each person’s constitutional archetype. An entire topical herbal protocol accompanies the treatment.
Blue Onyx is a form of massage using very low levels of electromagnetic waves. Its benefits can be likened to a gentle massage, with the added advantage of pinpointing the exact areas needing treatment. The effects are immediate and cumulative. The uplifting therapy is preventative, as well as corrective.
The number of sessions depends on the patient’s age, ethnicity, skin condition and lifestyle. In some cases a single treatment session shows visible results. For long lasting results and muscle reeducation, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly maintenance sessions are recommended.
