hospital[1]Tami Briggs lives in Minneapolis, MN and is now offering virtual hospital and hospice bedside vigils via Zoom. She is a therapeutic harpist and has her certification from the International Harp Therapy Program. Tami has played at the bedside of hundreds of hospital and hospice patients.

  • Allows hospital patients and families to focus on something hopeful and beautiful to distract them from pain and suffering.
  • Nurtures people in time of physical and/or emotional pain.
  • Vibrates and penetrates body tissues and cells to facilitate healing.
  • Provides positive sensory stimulation.
  • Provides palliative care for hospital and hospice patients in transition.
  • Improves physiological effects, such as relaxed muscle tension, increased oxygenation, slower heart rate, lowered blood pressure, etc.

  • Continuing to play bedside vigils at a local hospital.
  • Sharing the special message of music, hope and healing at numerous healthcare conferences throughout the year.
  • Sharing my music with thousands via this website and in retail stores.
  • Having an opportunity to be with my family at this special time.

Integrating Harp Therapy in Health Care Systems

While my harp therapy teacher’s mission is to have a “harp player in every hospital and hospice by 2020,” my vision includes: 

  • Licensing harp CDs to health care systems for their closed-circuit TVs. This is a simple, cost-effective method to help hospital and hospice patients relax, feel peace and calm, and sleep. E-mail me if you want more information.
  • In-service education of health care staff. Topics range from “Music and Healing” to “Music for Hospice” to “Self-Care for Health Care Providers.” Click here for more details about my presentations.
  • CDs in hospital gift shops. Contact me for wholesale prices of my books and CDs.
  • Playing at the bedside. For hospitals and hospices in the Twin Cities, I am available for these special bedside vigils. Contact me for pricing and availability. To find a therapeutic harpist in your geographical area, click here.

I’ve been doing this work full-time for the past 13 years and in that time, I’ve seen remarkable shifts in health care systems incorporating the ancient healing modality of harp therapy into the current evidence-based medical model. And we’ve only just begun … we are definitely living in exciting times!  This is my deep passion and I so appreciate your continued support to help make this a reality for those we are serving.
