Depression is a common problem that cause changes in mood and loss of interest and pleasure. Music therapy, an intervention that involves regular meetings with a qualified music therapist, may help in improving mood through emotional expression.
Music therapy seems to reduce depressive symptoms (e.g. maintaining involvement in job, activities, and relationships).
“There’s just something about music — particularly live music — that excites and activates the body,” says Loewy, whose work is part of a growing movement of psychiatrists, music therapists, and psychologists who are investigating the use of music in medicine to help patients dealing with pain, depression and possibly even Alzheimer’s disease.
I LOVE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF CONTINUES MUSIC LISTENING!
“Music very much has a way of enhancing quality of life and can, in addition, promote recovery.”
