Calming Fear and Anxiety with our New Mobile App


calm anxiety with soothing, therapeutic music

Have you ever experienced fear and anxiety before a medical procedure or a visit to the dentist? As a therapist, I know the number of people who struggle with almost crippling fear of a doctor or a dentist.  Some people actually have undergone some terrible experiences in a hospital or clinic, but some people have only heard about it and it has the same, anxiety-producing  effect.

Now, we have created a mobile app that actually gives you access to five different, soothing playlists that you can listen to through your own Bluetooth headphones or earbuds.  Or you can plug your own regular headphones or earbuds into your phone.

Hospitals are letting people bring in their music on their own phones more and more and they simply put the phone in a disposable surgical cap or a rubber glove and put it under that gurney on the shelf with other personal belongings.  The advantages of this new method are many:

  • No need to purchase another set of headphones for patient.
  • No need for hospital to purchase headphones and find storage space
  • No need for hospital or patient to worry about remembering headphones the day of surgery

At the same times, you will access to our music that has proven over and over again that it:

  • Reduces pain perception
  • Calms anxiety that patient feels before and during procedure
  • Reduces the amount of medication patient requires for anxiety
  • Often reduces the amount of anesthesia
  • Reduces that amount of addictive opioids that patient needs after the surgery

Our new mobile app IS NOW available for both iPhone and Androids!

We will always provide our tried and true pre-loaded headphones for those that want an immediate solution and need it quickly, or simply for those that are less “techy!”

As always, if I can answer any questions for you and troubleshoot problems, contact me here or at

To your sound health!!



Professional Ballerina gets ankle replacement using Surgical Serenity Solutions headphones


Helen Starr has had a fabulous career in the world of classical ballet, dancing with famous male partners such as Mikhail Baryshnikov and many others.  Naturally, professional ballerinas are very hard on their bodies, and especially their joints, with the hours and hours of training that they do and the jumping, running, and dancing on point.

So I was not surprised when I got a call from Helen Starr, telling me that she was going to have an ankle replacement and would like to use the Surgical Serenity Solutions headphones to help calm her before and during the surgery, and to reduce pain perception afterwards.  Ankle surgery has not been available for nearly as long as knee and hip replacement, so the patient has fewer options of where to go for the procedure.

She told me that she had had a knee replacement about 9 years previously and the hospital had offered her classical music on headphones, but she needed to go to a different hospital for the ankle procedure and they did not offer any kind of music during surgery.  She needed the surgery to get her ankle replaced and so she had heard about Surgical Serenity and wanted to try our headphones.

I was able to get her the headphones about a week in advance and instructed her to lie down for 30-40 minutes every afternoon with the headphones, learning to relax and let go of muscle tension when she heard this specific music.  She was a very good patient and did this faithfully, and it paid off.  When I saw her after surgery she said that things had gone extremely well and that she listened to the Serenity classical playlist before they took her back, through the surgery, and into the recovery area.  She told me that the doctors and nurses at this hospital were fascinated by the headphones and how the music was already loaded onto them, so that no bluetooth streaming was necessary or no cords were attached.

Of course, this is what I wish for everyone.  So please help us get the word to patients, doctors and hospitals.
