Christina is a Certified Clinical Musician using the healing elements of live music and sound.
Harp therapy is an ancient art. Therapeutic music performed on a harp, on-site is a service instead of performance. The presentation of live harp music is different from listening to a CD or taped music, in that live music can be delivered addressing the patient’s breathing patterns and can be slowed at will. Familiar or improvisational music is played on the harp with specific tones, vibrations and rhythms customized in the moment to the needs of the patient, hospice, group or staff in health care. Studies have shown the majority of patients who had live music at bedside indicated that it was relaxing for them and they wanted more. One study showed 89% of those in pain indicated that the live music had helped them become less aware of the pain; many reported complete cessation of their pain. Regardless of someone’s religious beliefs, place of origin or life’s challenge, the timbre and vibrations of the harp helps relax and bring relief from pain.
Christina plays relaxing and healing harp music for many needs. Please contact for scheduling and pricing.
