Therapeutic Music Services for Facilities


Alleviate a physical, mental
or emotional concern.

Therapeutic music is music intended to alleviate a physical, emotional, or mental concern.  It’s acoustic music, played or sung live, and is specifically tailored to the patient’s immediate need. It is an art based on the science of sound.

Contact us to schedule a exploratory meeting to learn more about offering therapeutic music to patients and staff in your facility. 

Certified Music Practitioner (CPM)

Ana Lucia Divins is a Certified Music Practitioner (CMP),
a graduate of Music for Healing and Transition Program (MHTP). 

As a CMP, she provides:

  • Live acoustic music at bedside
  • One-on-one, for therapeutic purposes

A CMP’s work is focused on the patient with the aim of bringing in-the-moment comfort to the patient’s whole being—emotional, spiritual, mental, and physiological—simply by having the patient be in the presence of the music.   MHTP is an accredited program by the National Board for Therapeutic Musicians (NSBTM).

Live music that heals

She has been trained to use the inherent healing elements of live music and sound to enhance the environment for patients in healthcare settings, making it more conducive to the healing process.  Ana Lucia has had extensive experience providing therapeutic music to staff at Atrium Health, to patients and family members of Hospice and Palliative Care of Cabarrus County, and to cancer patients from the Carolina Breast Friends program, Wellness House of Annapolis and Renacer – a community initiative by Atrium Health & Levine Cancer Institute. Currently, she also offers therapeutic music to residents of Aldersgate Senior Living community (Assisted Living, Memory Care & Rehabilitation Units)
