From biblical times it was known that the sounds of the harp offer unique comfort to the sick and ailing. Only in the last few years have scholars begun to document the amazing results. In fact , it appears that the very vibrations of the harp affect the listener in fairly profound ways—from lowering blood pressure to offering gentle comfort, to evening out breathing, to lessening the need of pain medications, to calming anxiety. The harp in medical settings can now be found in operating rooms, birthing centers, neonatal units, rehabilitation centers, cancer centers, Alzheimer’s units, nursing homes, hospices, doctors’ and dentists’ offices—the list just goes on and on!

Harp therapy makes a most special gift for someone ill or confined. Add to the harp’s wonderfully soothing sounds and gentle vibrations, the pleasure of knowing that one of our certified graduates has come to play their harp expressly for your loved one’s well being and comfort, it becomes clear what a truly magical present a session of harp therapy is.
