Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship. Solid medical research supports the concept that music is healthy for the mind, as it stimulates brain waves.
The brain is no different than any organ, in that when it is exercised, it becomes sharper, stronger and more useful. Stimulating the brain via music is the equivalent of developing a stronger heart through cardiovascular exercises. Music directly affects brain waves, as stronger and faster rhythms make people more alert, while slower music can help people meditate and relax. This healthy calming and focusing affect helps people develop a positive mind state, while also reducing stress, which lowers blood pressure.
Music therapy interventions can be designed to:
- Promote Wellness
- Manage Stress
- Alleviate Pain
- Express Feelings
- Enhance Memory
- Improve Communication
- Promote Physical Rehabilitation
Research in music therapy supports its effectiveness in a wide variety of healthcare and educational settings.
