Harmony Healing House was founded in 2006 by Kelly Mather. As a hospital administrator for over 20 years, Kelly was concerned about the high cost of the current healthcare system and the lack of long term effect on health and wellness. After testing many wellness systems and having no luck in finding a low cost and simple system that has a lasting impact for improved health, she decided to create one herself. With the assistance and inspiration of fellow healthcare wellness fanatics, Harmony Healing House was born.
What's behind our name? Our name represents our vision. Harmony is the key to the keys of wellness. It is a achieved when the elements of any system are in perfect and permanent resonance. This defines our vision of for all health systems whether it is the individual's four body system, or the shared mission of healthcare, education, community and government systems. Many individuals and organizations do not progress on the path toward wellness because they reach a line or barrier that requires significant change and commitment. But, we found that a single person manifesting harmonic health catalyzes considerable shifts in those around them and helps people cross the barriers and heal more rapidly. Healing is the process all systems use to achieve that state of perfect and permanent resonance. And what was most important to us is having systems that any inpsired catalyst can easily start using in your own home with no costly potions, meals or gyms. Therefore, our business is done through a low cost publishing House.
What's behind our logo? The logo represents our mission. As you can see, we use a tree shaped with three H's which is similar to a tree that overlooks our sacred lake in Northern California where Kelly has created the healing systems. The colored rainbow drops represent the touchstone of our mission which are 5 keys to wellness: Pink: Self Love; Blue: Breathing; Green: Positive Choices; Yellow: Balance; and Purple: Trust. We also include an orange rainbow drop that inspires energy and excitement to improve achieving harmonic health. The rainbow drops visually represent how the keys to wellness come through you to the ground and inspire growth.
After ten years of trial and error in working with hospitals, schools and many types of organizations, the Health Improvement Systems and the Healing Hospital Model were ready for the turn key approach. Executive Director, Toni Funderburg has led the charge to bring these systems to you in your HOME at the lowest cost possible. We believe that HEALTH IS CONTAGIOUS and we hope you become a catalyst and inspire health, too!
