Introducing Therapeutic Harp Music To RVA Residents In Need


Founder, Cindy Jennings, started Healing Harp to be able to play music one-on-one at the bedside/chairside of those who need therapeutic harp music including individuals in palliative or hospice care, undergoing cancer treatment, recovering from surgery or illness, suffering from memory loss as with dementia and Alzheimers.


When she left a career in music ministry, she was looking for her next step. Cindy received information about the Music for Healing & Transition Program from three different sources and thought, “this is a clear sign!”. After completing the 2-year program, she had difficulty finding work. This prompted her to start her own company where she'd be free to play for individuals and institutions. Then grew Healing Harp.


The pandemic put a complete stop to playing in person. Healing Harp offers zoom performances, but that doesn't have the same healing power as in-person music.


This type of healing is not very familiar yet in the Richmond area. Healing Harp is among the first to spread the word and practice "in the moment comfort care" in our area. What sets Cindy apart is the compassionate spirit she brings to each patient. In the future, Healing Harp expects to be playing for clients regularly and affiliated with a hospice. With this growth, her income will increase by 100%.


The way the community can support Healing Harp is through recommendations. If you, an individual, or an organization you know would benefit from this style of healing music, please reach out to Cindy. During these times, many could benefit from therapeutic music.

Location: Cindy is currently working out of her home in Glen Allen, but she will travel to go to a patient's home or hospital, hospice, or assisted living residence.
