Everywhere you go you'll hear some form of music, whether it's in a supermarket, on television, at a concert or a party etc. Did you know that therapists use music as apart of their clinical practice? Yes it’s true! Music Therapy is an established health profession that requires a Bachelor Degree or Higher.
What is music therapy?
Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program.
REF: (Defined by the American Music Therapy Association.)
Music therapy helps manage stress, alleviate pain, promote physical rehabilitation, and allow individuals to communicate when they can’t vocally.
I am not a Music Therapist Professional with a Bachelors degree in Music Therapy however, Music is a part of my daily therapy. I’ve been able to communicate with people through music, even where there would be a vocal language barrier.
How can you use music as therapy for yourself?
· Learn your favorite songs on piano via Youtube
· Listen to mediation music (ex: Calm Piano, Healing Music)
· Clean up your house while playing your favorite jams
· Stretch meditation in the morning, and at night to release toxins
