Music Therapy is an established healthcare profession that uses music
to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of
individuals of all ages. Music therapy improves the quality of life for
persons who are well and meets the needs of children and adults with
disabilities or illnesses. Music therapy interventions can be designed

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

What do music therapists do?
Music therapists assess
emotional well-being, physical health, social functioning,
communication abilities, and cognitive skills through musical
responses; design music sessions for individuals and groups based on
client needs using music improvisation, receptive music listening, song
writing, lyric discussion, music and imagery, music performance, and
learning through music; participate in interdisciplinary treatment
planning, ongoing evaluation, and follow up.

How can music therapy techniques be applied by healthy individuals?

Healthy individuals can use music for stress reduction via active music
making, such as drumming, as well as passive listening for relaxation.
Music is often a vital support for physical exercise. Music therapy
assisted labor and delivery may also be included in this category since
pregnancy is regarded as a normal part of women's life cycles.

How is music therapy utilized in hospitals?
Music is used in
general hospitals to: alleviate pain in conjunction with anesthesia or
pain medication: elevate patients' mood and counteract depression;
promote movement for physical rehabilitation; calm or sedate, often to
induce sleep; counteract apprehension or fear; and lesson muscle
tension for the purpose of relaxation, including the autonomic nervous

The human body is like a musical instrument, expressing numerous
frequencies and rhythms in a constantly changing spectrum of life. It
responds and resonates in consonance with music, sounds, speech and
thought from the environment, and undergoes changes of heart beat,
breathing, blood chemistry and circulation of energy in various organs
of the body.

Certain sounds have negative and destructive effects over the body.
When such sounds are received and registered by the Chakras (The Energy
Centers) and cells, the balance or equilibrium of the energies is
disturbed. This abnormality produces a pressure over various organs,
systems and cells and ultimately over the entire body.

In this system of Sound Therapy, specific sounds are used that deal directly with the root causes of imbalance by:

--Purifying and re-organizing the energy patterns that surround the
individual in the form of an ever-expanding and contracting magnetic
field (AURA).

--Penetrating the human body through the skin, the chief sensory organ,
and balancing the frequencies of Chakras and cells, thereby regulating
the flow of energy throughout the entire body.

Music therapy deals with problems related to the mind and its
complexes; to emotional imbalances; and finally to physical problems.
