The Instruments are chosen for their relaxing, healing qualities
* The harp is considered the oldest of all string instruments and for centuries has been used to relax and bring cellular healing to the listener
* The glass armonica, since its invention by Benjamin Franklin in 1761, has been associated with the ethereal, the angelic realm, the purity of quartz crystal
* The crystal singing bowl has been used extensively and successfully by one of New York’s top oncology physicians as complementary “medicine” to his traditional western approach
* The flute, especially as played by Debra, provides a flowing, expressive, soothing quality riding on breath that caresses the ear and soul
