Music and Healing
Journal/Book: Music Therapy: Journal of the America Association for Music Therapy. 1986; 6A: 3-12.
Abstract: Traditional Western medicine has not seriously considered music as a healing medium. The more recent ascendance of holistic medicine is creating a change in the attitude held by practitioners and the public to a position of greater acceptance of music therapy as a healing mode. In this article the author surveys a selection of research pertinent to the field. Music therapy is first defined, and the healing properties of music delineated. A review af physiological and therapeutic responses to music is followed by various opinions as to which types of music are most appropriate for music therapy procedures.
