Where word fails, MUSIC speaks:
Music is the language of the soul. The field of music therapy is growing as a specialty. An increasing number of interventions using music are being developed and implemented as complementary therapies for countless peoples.
Overall, music had a beneficial effect on the patients’ anxiety levels and moods. Music also decreased the patients’ heart rates, respiratory rates, and blood pressures. Patients reported an increased quality of life after intervention with music therapy. Music can evoke emotional response to relax or stimulate people or help them.
Music is not only created by people, but it is also all around us in nature. In the mornings, when the crickets and the birds chirp, it is music. The loud sound of the waves in the ocean swishing, the whistle in the wind, and the sound of trees and leaves rustling are all their own forms of music. Music therapy is the clinical use of music to accomplish individualized goals such as reducing stress, improving mood and self-expression. It is an evidence-based therapy well-established in the health community.
Music therapy may involve: listening to music, singing along to music, moving to the beat of the music, meditating and playing an instrument. There was never a question in my mind that music possesses a strong element to help people. It has always been a stress reliever in my life.
There are many reason as to why people try music therapy. A few would be coping with illness, managing problems, and overcoming impairments. The point is to get people feeling better by using a holistic approach to healing compared to using medication to make you feel better. Like most people listening to music it is calming for them, so, a lot of people tend to go to music when they are down.
