About Healing Harmonies
Healing Harmonies is a local music therapy business, created so that the community may have access to services for those in need of maintaining and/or improving their health and quality of life. Music is used to address non-musical goals by capitalizing on a client’s strengths to address areas of need. Services are provided for children and adults with developmental disabilities and at nursing homes, specializing in working with early and late stage dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. Also provided are piano, guitar, and voice lessons as well as music for children’s birthday parties.
Our mission is rooted in using the power of music to address the person as a whole, to show that there can be equality among humans, and to convert disability to ability. While using our passion for music and faith in each individual, we are committed to showing that we are all capable of accessing our inner rhythm to make our walk of life a more healthy and fulfilling journey.
