Happy Birthday to
Healing Music Ezine!
We are so proud to be recognized because the Healing Music Enterprises E-magazine is celebrating 10 years of continuous publication! Our ezine has been coming out monthly since 2001! Our first issue appeared in July of 2001 and many of my readers tell me they had never seen an electronic magazine before and thought it was really wonderful! At that time, my website had already been around for over two years and I noticed that online leaders in other fields such as business, medicine, fashion, etc, seemed to have their weekly or monthly online magazines.
The world was just barely beginning to understand about being "green" but I definitely recognized that more and more people were getting computers and going online and I knew none of us was ever going back! I also knew that people could afford to subscribe to free ezines, whereas print magazines were getting more and more expensive and tended to stack up, unread on people's shelves.
At the suggestion of my first webmistress, June Kaminski, RN, I decided to keep an archive of each issue, that would be forever available for review and for research. This archive is available for YOU at Healing Music Ezine Archive. Early issues focused on topics such as "ear worms," "movie music" and "music for pregnancy and preemies." Reading through the archives is like reading a history of Healing Music Enterprises and you can follow along as I created each product and travelled around the world, teaching people about the fantastic healing power of music!
I hope you'll take some time over the next month and issue some of 100+ back issues!

|Getting Surgery Headphones into YOUR hospitals|
Imagine that you've just been told that you need to have surgery. It could be a joint replacement surgery (very commonly done with us baby boomers!), a heart surgery for bypass or pacemaker implantation, a C-section, or even some cosmetic procedures. What ever surgery you have, it is always a BIG DEAL! Surgery is a fear-inducing prospect but there are many things that you can do to help yourself. One thing is to use music during your procedure.
Eventually, we hope and predict that the Surgical Serenity Headphones will be in every hospitals, large or small, in every country, large or small.
