One of my greatest passions in life is to use music as a mode of healing and transformation and this is why I embarked on the journey of therapeutic harp.
Therapeutic harp has so many applications to so many different conditions and circumstances. Within the last couple of months, I have been addressing a number of varied post traumatic stress conditions. Trauma can become locked into the body and nervous system so that even long after the initial stressor is over whether it was caused by an accident, an act of violence, a severe illness or loss or even the devastation of war, the body is still reacting and is often caught in the “fight or flight” mode causing physical weakness, loss of sleep, anxiety and great disturbance to the individual.
I have used harp therapy with people of all ages with post-traumatic stress from young children to the elderly. These individuals have reported great benefit from the harp therapy–a great release of stress and deep emotional healing, increased peace, increased energy, and the ability to get a deeper and more refreshing sleep. Music is a language of the heart and the soul that can transcend all other languages.
These therapeutic harp sessions last approximately one hour. I first determine the individual’s resonance and play music very specific for that individual and their own unique condition. I record the music and then burn them a CD or mp3 of the music for them to use again and again. It may take a series of sessions to get to the deep roots of the condition but even one session has given dramatic and transformative shifts for many people. Sessions can be given in person or even long distance with powerful benefits.
