Music with the power to heal

Music with the power to heal | Music Therapy |

What if you could use something as simple as music to help people dealing with everything from traumatic brain injuries and strokes to neurological disorders and depression? Well, music therapists have been doing just that for more than half a century. And in the Bay Area, the field of music therapy is growing–in hospitals, schools and nursing homes–to help treat a wide range of medical maladies.


The Jared Kurtin Music Therapy Program at Oakland Children’s Hospital is the largest of its kind in Northern California. With two musical therapists working five days a week and a well-established internship operation, the program caters to an average of fifty patients every month.


Therapists use music in a lot of different ways. For some patients, music is a way to help them express emotions they otherwise couldn’t. For others it helps to feel connected to their families while they’re stuck in the hospital. And for some patients with neurological disorders or brain injuries, it helps them find speech — many are able to sing before they’re able to talk.

This article further explains how Music Therapy is slowly becoming a new form of positive therapy. Music therapy research proves that music has a positive affect on recovering health patients. Music is a way to reduce stress, anxiety and even can reduce pain up to 50 percent! This is a great atricle and I hope music therapy continues to strive to excellence.
