Music Therapy is treatment through musical sounds. Music has been used as a therapeutic tool for centuries and has been shown to affect many areas of the brain, including the regions involved in emotion, cognition, sensation, and movement.
Music Therapy uses music to improve and maintain the physical, psychological, and social well-being of individuals. It involves a broad range of activities, such as listening to music, singing, and playing a musical instrument. This is facilitated by a trained therapist and is often used in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, schools, correctional facilities, nursing homes, and hospices.
