MUSIC! Mends not only a broken heart….

November 16, 2017


“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.”– Bob Marley



Music is an amazing thing that can invoke an array of emotions, memories, be a soulful form of communication, and truly- I believe-The essence of life.

Studies have shown that music used in pain management therapy can be highly effective. Not only a broken heart can be mended by some soulful riffs but also physical injuries too.

 A 2015 review in The Lancet found that people who listened to music before, during, or after surgery experienced less pain and anxiety, compared to patients who did not listen to music.

To conduct the study, researchers looked at data from 73 different trials, involving more than 7,000 patients.

The people who experienced a slightly greater, but nonsignificant, reduction in pain, and needed the least pain medication, were the ones who got to pick their own music.A recent review in
the World Journal of Psychiatry found that music therapy can be an effective treatment for mood disorders related to neurological conditions, including Parkinson’s disease, dementia, stroke, and
multiple sclerosis.After reviewing 25 trials, the researchers concluded that music is a valid therapy to potentially reduce depression and anxiety, as well as to improve mood, self-esteem, and
quality of life.They also noted that no negative side effects were reported in any of the trials, making music a low-risk treatment. -Susan Booth
Music can evoke emotion, help regain memories, stimulate new neural connections, and active attention. While listening to music may bring greater health benefits, creating it can be an effective therapy, too.

“Music is probably the only real magic I have encountered in my life. There’s not some trick involved with it. It’s pure and it’s real. It moves, it heals, it communicates and does all these incredible things”. – Tom Petty
