Music Therapy Makes A Difference

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 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.

Music therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program.

In other words, music therapy is the use of music by a trained professional to achieve therapeutic goals. Goal areas may include, but are not limited to, motor skills, social/interpersonal development, cognitive development, self-awareness, and spiritual enhancement.

The idea of music as a healing modality dates back to the beginnings of history, and some of the earliest notable mentions in Western history are found in the writings of ancient Greek philosophers.

Music, beautiful music that haunts our memories, is also music with the magic power to heal, cure and elicit different emotions from the depth of our being, depending on what we are listening to. Goldman and Gurin working on psycho-immunology reveal each and every organ of our immune system is made up of nerve fibres providing biological communication between nerve endings and the immune system. In short, there is a direct link between a person’s thoughts, attitudes, perceptions, emotions and the health of the immune system. This means music bestows on us, the power to be proactive in maintaining the health of our body, mind and spirit. It empowers us to tap into the innate knowledge that resides deep within our cells, simply by listening, playing or creating music.

Music nourishes and enriches our lives in so many ways, inspiring us, relaxing us, energising us; in short it has immense healing power, a power that can keep us in the prime of health. Everywhere, our universe is a symphony of sounds interacting and vibrating together, music is the energy pulse that courses in and through everything via sound vibrations.
