What We Do
We provide live, professional quality, soothing music in hospital wards and waiting rooms throughout the SF Bay area to support patient care.
Our professional musicians ("Muses") perform live music which is played as a healing tool to promote relaxation, diminish pain, and reduce stress during hospital stays and procedures. Our music ministers to the sick, as well as to visitors and medical staff, and provides a health service with no direct cost to patients. Visit our "animation" as an illustration of our music's soothing effects. Download a flyer.
Healing Muses relies on broad-based support received from individual members of the community and from various public and private sources. We are a non-profit corporation. Our founder, Eileen Hadidian, said last fall: "I am pleased that the Board and friends of Healing Muses are carrying forward the work I envisioned and began 12 years ago, to offer healing music without direct cost to patients. It is my hope that you will continue to be a community of support, sustaining Healing Muses as it provides live, professional quality, soothing music to support patient care in hospital wards and waiting rooms throughout the SF Bay area."
We raise funds by sales of our CDs (go to "Our Music" page) and by donations (go to the "Donate" page or use the button on the right to securely link to our PayPal account). We occasionally hold educational and fund-raising events where our Muses play and tell stories. If you are not on our mailing list (snail or email), contact us so you can be invited to and kept informed about our activities.
"Healing Muses' programs awaken the positive forces of healing that come from within."
