Benefits of Music Therapy
We all know that music can affect our moods. Jazz makes us chill, country soothes, classical inspires, blues make us sad, and rock makes us well, rock, jump or act crazy. The right mix of music makes us do physical things too, like dancing like its 1999, working out like Rocky or falling asleep to easy listening. Music also helps us wake up, make it thru our commute to work, sets the mood for love and depending on how many times a Christmas song has been played happy or nauseous. Music directly affects our moods which can also indirectly effect physical responses in our bodies.
It shouldn’t surprise you when I tell you music can be therapeutic. Numerous studies have been done that show music can be used as therapy. Twelve popular music therapies include:
- Easing anxiety.
- Helping restore lost speech.
- Reducing side effects of cancer therapy.
- Helping motivate rehab therapy.
- Aiding in pain relief.
- Easing sinus pain.
- Reducing snoring.
- Lowering blood pressure.
- Reducing depression by 35%.
- Repairing DNA.
- Improving sleep quality by 40%.
- Improving quality of life for people with Dementia and Alzheimer’s.*
*Music therapy does not represent a treatment of dementia, its use is based on the positive referenced effects on behavioral responses in individuals with dementias. Music therapy is also not a new field or science. People have been invoking emotional responses out of others with music since the beginning of time. According to one Harvard Medical School study, “Because the ability to engage with music remains intact well into the Dementia disease process, music therapy can help to evoke memories, reduce agitation, assist in conversation, and improve physical coordination.” There are few boundaries with music therapy.
Music therapy allows family and caregivers to reestablish emotional closeness over meaningful interactions triggered by a song with a pleasant memory to the patient. It is about our parents and grandparents that this app was built for caregivers. Alzheimer's and other dementia's don't just strike a person's brain, they strike his or her whole family and support network.
