Is Music Therapy Right For You?

By Rosie Hays, Music Therapist

When asking yourself this question, it is important to consider how music therapy can impact your life. Individuals in many different life circumstances can benefit from music therapy. Furthermore, research has proven that music therapy is a powerful medium for healing.

Here is just some of what music therapy has been shown to do:

  • Reduce pain
  • Reduce stress
  • Lessen muscle tension
  • Improve communication skills
  • Ease anxiety
  • Improve learning
  • Increase emotional awareness
  • Elevate mood
  • Improve self-esteem
  • Process trauma
  • Improve coping
  • Empower
  • Access the creative spirit

The music therapy process is unique to the individual and can look different in many ways. As a therapist, my goal is to co-create the music therapy process with a client to honor their uniqueness and uncover strength from within to access the full potential of the gifts that music therapy can bring into your life. Sessions can include but are not limited to instrumental and/or vocal improvisation, song re-creation, song/lyric discussion, songwriting, music supported relaxation, music and imagery, and music-based movement.

Research citations, references, more key findings, including population-specific information can be found here.

If you would like to learn more about how music therapy can benefit you or have any questions, I invite you to book a free consultation.
