“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.

“Music very much has a way of enhancing quality of life and can, in addition, promote recovery.”

  3. I love music!!! It is one of the most helpful, therapeutic things I can do when I am down. I play piano and listen to music. Both just help give me a huge boost in my mood. Pet therapy is also very helpful.My dogs help very much!

    1. You play piano! Love to hear a musical piece played by you. I play guitar very well. I mainly sing with it, some Lady Gaga songs, The Carpenters, Beatles, anything from the 70’s to 2021. And you, what do you play? Classical, instrumental, sing too? Tell me, please.
      Yes, love animals. My main pets are cats. But love dogs too
      Nice talking to you.


    1. Oh yes, it helps a lot. Like you, I love music. BTW, I would love to follow you back but this is what I get when I click on — durvacontent, the link you have when you comment by your avatar.: doesn’t exist. Let me know when you fix it to follow you back, durva.


    1. Samantha, thank you for your comment. It is wonderful for me to know that music helped you so much in your childhood. Music does that. Music has been my partner since I was 7 years old when I started to learn how to play the guitar. But yes, you are correct. Sometimes we need more than that.
      Sometimes in our lives it feels like nobody cares, and what others don’t understand is that that feeling is so real and painful we hang on to anything to survive and make it through.
