When used in tandem with other forms of treatment, music plays an important role in psychiatric and psychological problems.

Anyone who has studied the seven notes or sur of Indian music will tell you that they are a complete therapy in themselves. Sama Veda, a 4,000-year old Indian treatise on the Vedic Science of Music explains the effect of ragas (musical notes) on our inner consciousness. Ragas have been known to cure various ailments and scientific research has proven their effectiveness. The symptoms of indigestion, rheumatic arthritis, hyper-tension, anorexia, headaches, hyper-acidity, gall stones, coughs, constipation, piles, intestinal gas, diarrhoea, colitis, anaemia, hyper-tension and much, much more can be influenced by the sheer power of music.

And, chanting the Vedic 'Om', the first single syllable sound heard when the universe was created is considered divine, and chanting it can control pulse and blood pressures, relieve stress, alter neurological states, control the pituitary gland, the hypothalamus, the endocrine and the nervous system . Music therapy may not affect a complete cure, but it does help physically and mentally challenged people; it helps develop better coping skills and enhances self-esteem in its listeners.
