Welcome to the International Harp Therapy program!

Discover the world of therapeutic music with the harp! Learn how to become a certified harp therapy practitioner through the IHTP program. Develop skill in playing the harp; learn how to work intuitively with patients and clients; weave familiar songs together with improvisational and unfamiliar music as you work with your clients. You will learn useful repertoire for many situations in healthcare environments; how to find the harp that’s best for you; and best practices to work as a therapeutic musician in a clinical setting.

You will learn how to find and use a patient’s resonant tone, how to create an interactive music program for  senior center residents,  youth center attendees, children with special needs, and much more!

Consider a career in community music-making with the Rainbow of Sound program and Harp Circles.

International Harp Therapy Program

For close to 3 decades, the Int’l Harp Therapy Program (IHTP) has trained graduates from 22 countries across 5 continents!

In 2010 we began our on-line educational program. This enabled us to offer high-quality education to those around the world interested in using their musical talents for well-being benefits of humanity.

The time has come where we have established our global Affiliate Partner Programs while many of golden leaders are looking forward to their retirements.  Our new leaders are now prepared to offer you the same excellent training in their countries.  Christina and her Resonant Kinesiology team, plan to continue teaching the experiential specialty Level 2 Modules (ESM) focusing on Resonant Tone and Interactive methods using the harp. Our affiliate programs will be providing the prerequisite for the in-depth training that makes the IHTP unique.

NOTE:  We will be closing our on-line format on October 1, 2020 however we will continue offering the Attendance Modules in the USA, Europe, Asia, with new programs starting in other countries.

What does this mean for you if you cannot travel to one of our Attendance Modules?  We are inviting those who are committed to studying our last ON-LINE training starting this coming January 2019 (deadline of entry is April 1, 2019), and a commitment to finish by October 1, 2020 (1 year and 9 months). This is an accelerated program allowing plenty of time to finish the program however, it is only for those seriously wanting to get their Level 1 training on-line with no extensions of time available.  Please note:  In order to receive a full certification from the IHTP, our Experiential Specialty Module (ESM) Level 2 is a 1 week attendance module that takes place in many places around the world.

On our informational  webinar presentation on December 18th, we discussed how to obtain the training that has pioneered changes in healthcare. We discussed the scope of the program and provided optional ways on how you can become certified if you are unable to travel in the future. You will find this information at by signing in and creating your own passcode. You will be able to view a video of what the program offers, what you will learn and the various options for study. In addition, there was a question and answer section at the end of the recording.

If you are interested in preparing for entrance in the future to our Attendance programs, Christina is offering 2 FREE webinar lessons where you will learn two modal healing pieces of music that can be submitted for your application. You may choose to continue with lessons #3-#10 for a small fee.
