Big Changes at Healing Music Enterprises

Healing Music Enterprises was started in 1996 after Dr. Alice Cash had been working in the field of Music as Medicine at the University of Louisville, School of Medicine for six years.  Since that time, a lot of wonderful things have happened and Dr. Cash has ben invited to speak around the world and has developed over 44 unique products, including CD's, DVD's, eBooks, courses, downloads and the Surgical Serenity Headphones.  Many of you have been on our list since the first Healing Music Ezine came out in July of 2001.  We have slowly and steadily positioned ourselves so that we might reach and educate the maximum number of people about the many ways that music can help you achieve greater health and wellness, help you through surgery, create a healthier pregnancy and childbirth experience.

In 2005, while attending National Speakers Association's "Cancun University" I had the idea to create some wireless, cordless, pre-programmed headphones with the perfect music for surgery on them.  I had been creating playlists for surgery patients at the medical school and local hospitals, and realized that having the music already on the headphones, ready to go, would be best of all.  At that time, I knew nothing about getting patents, creating business plans and marketing a new medical device.  Now I do!

Surgical Serenity Headphones is getting big enough and successful enough that we need to create a separate business model just for the whole system, including preprogrammed headphones, a download of our proprietary music and headphones for procedures other than surgery!  Dr. Cash is now attending a 10-week entrepreneur course that will help focus the business methods and plans.  Thanks to a carefully kept database, we know who all of our subscribers are and who all of our past customers are.  We are thinking of separating the mailing list for the new business from our regular Healing Music Ezine, that focuses on music with babies, Alzheimer's patients, the brain, and other non-surgery/hospital-related issues.

We'd love to have your thoughts and ideas about this.  As part of our customer service efforts, Dr. Cash will personally call everyone on the list who has bought either the headphones or the surgery music download.  If you're a past customer, you can definitely expect a call in the next couple of weeks!  To show our appreciation, we are again offering a very special offer on the download of our proprietary music.  Everyone has been so supportive over the past 11 years and our growth and all the fantastic media exposure that we've gotten proves it.  Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and ideas with me!

Another powerful story of Music with Alzheimer's Disease Patient

What better “medicine” than a “treatment” that has only positive side effects and “therapy” that is actually enjoyable? That is the “miracle of music” when applied with intention. Music is shown to have the ability to help organize the brain; especially vital to those who are afflicted with Alzheimer’s.

Preparing for your surgery: 3 Easy Ideas

If you’ve just found you need surgery, or if you’ve decided to have an elective procedure, you still have fears and anxiety. Everyone does if they’re honest with themselves:

  • What if something goes wrong?
  • What if I wake up in the middle of the procedure?
  • What if I don’t wake up at all?!

In the vast majority of surgeries, nothing goes wrong. Surgery happens all over the world, every day. But when things go wrong, whether it’s leaving the sponge inside the patient’s body, taking off the wrong leg, or breast, or hand, it’s extremely traumatic.

Opera Singer Recovers from Rare Brain Condition using Music

To say singing saved 25 year old Sandra Marante’s life is no stretch; in fact, if you ask her, she’ll tell you it saved her twice. At 19 years old, Marante’s burgeoning career as a pop singer was abruptly halted when an accident at a Florida restaurant left her with severe burns. During months of rehabilitation, music served as her therapy and motivation to make it through the painful ordeal. One night, as she lay in her hospital bed, she found herself entranced by an opera performance on television. Inspired by the beauty of the soprano’s voice, she decided to leave the fast-paced world of pop music to pursue the artistry of classical music.

That decision brought her to Chicago, where in 2010 she enrolled as a graduate vocal performance student at Roosevelt University’s Chicago College of Performing Arts (CCPA). While rehearsing in September 2011, Marante had a grand mal seizure and was rushed by ambulance to Northwestern Memorial Hospital. She was seen by neurosurgeon Bernard Bendok, MD, and neurologist Richard Bernstein, MD, who informed her the seizure was caused by an arteriovenous malformation (AVM), a neurological condition that occurs in less than one percent of the population, yet is a leading cause of stroke in young people.

For nearly two decades, I've been helping people use the music that they already love to heal their lives and increase their wellness quotient!  I am one of the world's only clinical musicologists and hold  a Masters degree in piano performance, a Ph.D. in musicology and a Master of Social Work in clinical social work.  I am also a licensed clinical social worker. I work with people and diagnoses of all kinds, enabling them to find healing, acceptance and hope.

I love performing, researching, and teaching and have put them all together in a career called "Music Medicine." 

See you next month!!
