Update Music Therapy
Whenever people cannot communicate with language alone or are difficult to access, music therapy is a tool of choice - from promoting the development of premature babies to dealing with dementia patients.
Music promotes brain plasticity, helps people relearn speech and fine motor skills after a stroke, is effective for Parkinson's disease, against depression, against tinnitus, regulates circulation and reduces pain. Music synchronizes body, mind and spirit.
For children with disabilities, in developmental crises, with attention deficit disorders or violent tendencies, music therapy can prevent acute problems from becoming chronic.
