Music therapy revolves around tickling parts of the brain that are associated with positive thinking. Through our studies we have found that music triggers parts of the brain, no matter the type of music or the brain itself. We have used this information to devise a program that is universally successful while being tailored to the patient’s special brain chemistry.
Combined with meditation, we have found that music therapy is the best way to reduce stress and anxiety simply because it is something that humans are naturally drawn to. Part of virtually every civilization since the beginning of time, music has always acted as a way for humans to feel more connected to one another. As social beings, we want to belong, and music acts as a way for all humans to feel like they belong.
Although still a type of therapy that is being tested, the results of music therapy, even in children and adults with autism has been staggering. Able to increase mental activity and change the way people perceive the world around them, the high tech world of music therapy is only getting better at making people better able to live happy and healthy lives.
And while music therapy is only one of the services that we offer, we believe that it is a welcome addition to any existing course of therapy. Music therapy is something that may not be the final answer, but it is one of the best ways to reduce stress, making it something that can go alongside any type of cognitive behavioral therapy.
We can’t change who we are, but we can change the way we think and perceive the world around us. Music therapy is the best bridge between wanting to belong and actually feeling like we belong. It is one of the reasons music has been around since the beginning of time and continues to work miracles.
