The Healing Power of Music is Unlike any Other Form of Treatment
Music therapy is a combination of the art of music and intervention treatment (psychology). It is the only sensory medium that can activate all areas of the brain at the same time, which triggers the development of new neuropathways for healing and wellness.
Our music therapy treatments are expansive and personalized, which helps patients see benefits faster and makes treatment more effective than treatment without music. The benefits of music therapy are beneficial for everyone and have been documented healing people with a wide variety of conditions:
- Therapy for those with Autism, Alzheimer’s, and dementia; brain injuries, stroke, stress, depression, and addiction.
- Music therapy is so powerful it can reduce the use of pharmaceuticals and medicine for many conditions and can completely change your mood and your life.
- Companies are seeing positive effects in their workplace with improved employee morale, stress reduction, increased ability to focus and a relief from anxiety.
- Healthy individuals can use music as a wellness tool for stress reduction and relaxation.
Where It Started
How Does It Work?
Music Therapy is a psychological and clinical intervention prescribed that uses body-sound-non-verbal expressions to develop a relational bond between the therapist and the people who need help to improve their quality of life, from physical, psychological, emotional, cognitive to social conditions.
Many clinical studies have shown that Music Therapy can improve social behaviors, increase focus and attention, and communication, reduce anxiety and improve body awareness and coordination for children and young adults with Autism and other social communication disorders. Music therapy becomes a new communication channel for special needs people.
