Upper Valley Harp Therapist

Jenny Gelfan and PJ Morgan, owners of The Massage Center - Healing Arts Associates in Norwich, are pleased to announce that Pat Stebbins has joined their staff as a harp therapist.

To welcome Pat to The Massage Center and to introduce people to healing harp music, Pat will give a concert on Sunday, November 15th at 5 pm at  The Massage Center, 8 Carpenter Street, Norwich. The concert is free, but reservations are requested as space is limited. Please call 802-649-1149 to make your reservation.

Pat has loved and studied music since the age of three, starting with the
piano. She played French horn throughout high school and college, along
with various elusive Rennaissance instruments, and guitar. She majored in
voice in college and has a BA in music performance.

Patricia Stebbins took up the harp at age 33 after regretfully casting the
Highland Pipes down in favor of a quieter way to celebrate her Scottish

Wanting to do more with music, in 2007 she began her studies with Bedside
Harp, a harp therapy certification program based in Bucks County, PA, and
in August 2009 became a Certified Harp Therapist, Hospital Intensive. She
feels this is a way to give back some of the joy and healing music has
brought into her own life.

After the concert, Pat will be available on Fridays at The Massage Center for harp therapy alone or in conjuction with massage or other treatments. Appointments can be made by calling 802-649-1149.

When not harping, Pat still sings for the fun of it, takes much joy in
being a grandmother, and shares her life with her tiny dog and her old
Quarter Horse gelding. She has released one recording, "Heroes and
Friends" and another is in the works. She lives in the Upper Valley, on
the Vermont side of the river.
