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 and reduce stress during hospital stays. 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. Fully 40% of our programs are underwritten by donations (you can go to the "Donate" page or use the button on the right to securely link to our PayPal account). The positive effects of Healing Muses’ services have been recognized by physicians, healthcare administrators, and in various publications. Details of our organization, including financial statements, can be found at Guidestar.
Our Music & Other Activities
We also raise funds by sales of our CDs (go to "Our Music" page) . 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."

"There is increasing empiric evidence that musical interventions can result, among others, in reduced anxious and depressive symtoms and lowered blood pressure."
