What is music therapy?
Music is a language that communicates to an individual’s “inner being”. It has the power to influence feelings, create atmospheres and change moods. Music Therapy, within a clinical setting, is the prescribed use of music in order to restore, maintain, and improve emotional, physical, physiological, and spiritual wellbeing.
Research has shown that music can affect the heartbeat, brain waves, respiratory system, blood pressure, induce feelings of safety, strengthen the memory and aid learning.
