Music therapy - Ethnoscience Glossary Terms and Abbreviations
Music therapy is used to help patients express their thoughts, moods and emotions. It also helps relieve stress, anxiety and pain. The patient may perform the music, or listen passively, with the goal of helping the patient communicate, overcome personal barriers or blockages, and express their feelings. Music therapy may be used to help lower blood pressure, overcome learning disabilities, or improve movement and balance. Background music, or various types of "non-intrusive" New Age music, is often used in combination with meditation, hypnosis and to guided imagery.
