Health Care System Alert!

AHMA LogoWe often hear the adage “The health care system is rapidly changing.” But what exactly does this mean?

Last week, I spoke and played the harp at the Mayo Clinic’s Holistic Wellness conference. And I had an opportunity to attend some of the sessions that addressed the health care shift. In the coming weeks on this blog, I’ll be discussing several highlights from this conference.

The first keynote presentation was by Bill Manahan, MD. He began with the expansive question, “How much of the body’s imbalance is connected to body/mind/emotions/spirit?” He suggested a broader, integrative approach is needed many times. And this is the transition that is occurring – evolving from the current medical model of disease care to truly managing health (not just disease).

Definitely “food for thought”…

Announcing New Research on Harp Therapy and Healing Touch

In May 2006, I began volunteering with Barb Schommer (Certified Healing Touch Practitioner/Instructor) at Woodwinds Health Campus in Woodbury, MN.

The Woodwinds’ Integrative Therapies department recently released a research summary of our work together, “The Impact of Healing Touch with Harp Therapy on Inpatient Acute Care Pain: A Retrospective Analysis.”

We are excited to announce very positive results! The complete report will be available soon … please contact me at tami@MusicalReflections.com if you would like a copy.
