Music is the best of therapies, it can health you of all.

.
Music is one of the few things in life that has the power to move most people emotionally. A piece of music can bring back memories, lift our spirits or soothe our soul and help us express emotions when words fail us. It is this power that Music Therapy provides, using the various musical components to provide a way of relating within a therapeutic relationship.

Music is something that almost everyone can relate to and, in fact, most of us listen to music at some time every day. Whether you're singing along with your favorite song on your way to work, listening to the radio at home or dancing on a Saturday night, chances are that there is not a day that goes by without music.

The idea behind Musical Therapy is to take advantage of that shared experience in a therapeutic way. Music Therapy can help a variety of people, including those with emotional difficulties and physical limitations. Young children can benefit and improve communication, while older people can regain self-esteem.

The use of music as therapy has taken place for centuries, since ancient Greece. Apollo, for example, is the Greek god of music and medicine, which shows that the two have been linked at least since ancient Greek times. Musical Therapy is practiced even in biblical times, when it was thought that David played the harp to free Saul from an evil spirit.

The Musical Therapy as we know it today began in the wake of the World Wars I and II. It was then that musicians (especially in the United Kingdom) would travel to hospitals to play music for soldiers who suffered emotional and physical trauma. French cellist Juliette Alvin pioneered clinical music therapy in Britain in the 1960s, and is still considered to be the strongest influence factor in therapy.

But...what is Music Therapy?
Music Therapy is a type of creative therapy that consists of listening and / or playing music. Depending on the needs of the participant, Music Therapy can promote self-awareness, communication skills and self-esteem. The therapy uses the social and communicative nature of music to do this and aims to facilitate positive changes in behavior.

In general, the music therapist will conduct sessions using a series of instruments and / or his voice to provoke the interaction and response of the participants. This type of relaxed and safe environment helps to promote learning and emotional release of the participants.

Is musical experience needed?
No previous musical experience is needed and it is not necessary to know how to play an instrument to participate. If the therapist wants you to join, he is likely to offer you an easy tool to play, an instrument such as a drum or tambourine or, in fact you can just sit back and enjoy listening to the music.

It is also worth noting that Music Therapy is not intended to teach you to play an instrument and should not be a substitute for music lessons. Having said that, it is possible that you naturally acquire better rhythmic control and develop musical sensitivity.

Can music therapy cure?
Musical Therapy has the potential to affect an individual for the best, however, some conditions are irreversible. In some cases, Music Therapy may have a healing effect, and in others it may help to slow down the deterioration. Depending on the issues that are addressed within the therapy, it may be necessary for the individual to undergo additional treatment, or to combine different types of treatment.



The reason to talk about this very interesting topic is that these therapies are totally recommended in people like my oldest daughter, and since we are testing the improvement is noticed. For this reason I wanted to tell you about it after spending time searching for the relevant information.
