Since its launch in 1996, the The Harp Therapy Journal has been dedicated to furthering education, research, communication and awareness in the emerging field of harp therapy. Publishing Editor Sarajane Williams conceived the journal as a vehicle for harp therapists, harpists, music therapists, physicians, nurses, researchers, psychologists, physicists, educators and harp music lovers to share ideas and information on the subject.
Trained harp therapists now practice in hospitals and related institutions world wide, and there are several active training programs. Investigations about the specific effects of harp music on the human body are described in the The Harp Therapy Journal. The unique timbre of the instrument provides a very soothing and relaxing effect. The harp has a rich archetypal heritage in western culture as an instrument of healing — it is the instrument of angels, gods and kings.
