There’s no question that sound has a major impact on all of us. Soft ballads soothe us, anthems stir us, heavy metal sends some of us into frenzies. It’s no wonder, then, that doctors have adopted sound and music for a variety of therapeutic uses.
Of all the sound therapies in use today, this is the most common. Music therapy can reduce heart rate, blood pressure, pain, and anxiety.
In hospitals, it’s used to alleviate pain (along with pain medication or anaesthesia), improve patients’ moods and counteract depression, promote movement during physical rehabilitation, calm or sedate, induce sleep, counteract fear, and reduce muscle tension.
In nursing homes, it’s used to boost the residents’ level of physical, mental, and social functioning.
