About Healing Heart TV
Sisters Joan Burge & Gina DeGirolamo at
St. Johns Medical Center Santa Monica, CA
Healing Heart TV was created in 2014 by award winning cinematographer, Gina DeGirolamo, after her experience with being her sister's caregiver through a very difficult illness and surgery. After weeks spent in the hospital she began to observe what was working and what wasn't for the patient, the families and the caregivers.
What wasn't working? Hospital noise, constant interruption an overwhelmed nursing staff and negative news media being played on hospital televisions. What was working? Facilities that streamed nature videos, healing music and guided imagery on their televisions; healing gardens and beautiful art work, and holistic approaches to patient care like Reiki and yoga as part of the healing services.
Gina decided she needed to make a contribution and make it her mission to transform the patient experience through the creation of cinematic nature videos. Once she began on this road she realized that there were so many other forms of media content that could support not only the patient experience but the caregiver experience as well.
Healing Heart™ tv provides original films, Nature Relaxation™ videos, healing music and curated content from around the globe to patients, hospitals, medical offices, and other health care and healing facilities.
