Mood Enhancing, Pain Relieving Music Therapy


As anyone can testify, music impacts us in profound ways. Gentle songs soothe, anthems stir, while heavy metal generates a frenetic frenzy in listeners. As medical doctors, psychiatrists, therapists begin to acknowledge the power of sound; they have begun to use it for in a variety of ways and have found music to have many therapeutic uses.

Music therapy, not only helps reduce blood pressure, heart rate, anxiety and pain; hospitals have begun to play music in surgeries and operating theatres to reduce the need for anaesthesia and pain medication. Live music has helped enhance and improve the mood of patients, counteracted their depression, helped calm and sedate, promoted movement during physical rehab., counteracted fear, relaxed and reduced muscle tension and induced sleep. Nursing homes too, have reported a boost in mental, social and physical functioning of its residents who have had digital music played to them on a regular basis. Music therapy can be used for a variety of purposes, such as:

  • Relieving before and after surgery anxiety.
  • Reducing stress in Intensive Care Units.
  • Reducing chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting.
  • Helping women in labour to forego anaesthesia.
  • Relaxing infants and children.
  • Breaking the cycle of pain in people with chronic pain.
  • Helping stroke patients and people with Parkinson's disease walk normally.
  • Reducing anxiety during examination of the lower colon and rectum for potentially cancerous polyps.
  • Reducing stress in healthy persons.
  • Dr. Julie Trudeau, a trained therapist advises you to try digital music therapy, listen to digital music, play a musical instrument, sing or write the lyrics for a song, or simply listen to the sounds of nature i.e. the chirruping of a bird, the rustling sound of leaves, the soughing of the wind amongst tree branches. You will be surprised to find yourself relaxing as the body rhythms get in sync and vibrate to the sounds of nature!
