If you read my blog, you know that I am a big fan of neuroscience. The brain fascinates me and understanding how it works is a big part of my clinical work.

So it should be no surprise that Dan Levitin’s book This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession has been on my reading list for awhile...

 

Editor's Note: If you're looking for a great book, check this one out.

 

 

Music Therapy & Sound Healing


by Julie Russell, RN

Over the past several years I have found that I have been guided to not only work with my hands to run healing energy but also to use sound as a conduit for healing myself and others. It all started for me when I began to use a set of tuning forks on the body and could feel the vibration of the sounds move through my body in a gentle healing manner...

Music Therapy & Sound Healing


by Dr. Jane Ma’ati-Smith, C Hyp, MscD

The meaning of the word Chakra in Sanskrit is "spinning wheel of energy". The chakras are energy centers within our bodies. Receiving and transmitting energy, each chakra is located within the physical body, at a major endocrine gland, and nerve bundle called a plexus...

Music Therapy & Sound Healing


by Mayu Kawata, MT-BC, HHP

Music therapy can be used in a variety of settings, from children with special needs to hospice. Music therapists are trained clinicians who bring musical experiences to meet the complex needs of an individual or group...

 

Editor's Note: Music has been used throughout history for important times of transition in life, including death. Using music can be tremendously healing for those who are dying as well as those who have lost their loved ones. Here's my personal journey on music and death, and why I am passionate about the use of music in end-of-life and bereavement care.

 

Music Therapy & Sound Healing


by Sara Davidson

Ms. Clair [a music therapist at the facility] said recently, “I knew Tom was a World War II vet, and vets did a lot of ballroom dancing.” As Sinatra began singing, Elsie opened her arms, beckoning. Tom stared a moment, then walked over and began leading her in the foxtrot. “They danced for thirty minutes!” Ms. Clair said. When they were finished, Elsie broke down and sobbed. “I haven’t been held by my husband in three years,” she told Ms. Clair. “Thank you for bringing him back.”


by Kristin S. Padilla, RN, BSN, RNC

As a first time mother of an eight-and-a-half month old, I'd like to begin with a personal anecdote of how music has already had an influence on my child's life.

Since the day that we brought my son, Luke, home from the hospital, I have been playing music or singing to him (albeit, not well but he seems to like it!). I didn't think much about music having the ability to calm him down until one day I was driving down the freeway and he started to become very fussy and cry...

Music Therapy & Sound Healing


by Jennifer Buchanan, BMT, MTA

It’s Thursday morning and eight visually impaired babies and toddlers accompany their parents to the music therapy program at the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB). They file in one by one, many of the parent’s looking disheveled and tired. The parents help each child take off their coat before finding a comfortable place on the floor. The child sits in front while their parent cradles their little body from behind...

 

Editor's Note: Children with visual impairments can find a sense of relaxation with the help of soothing sounds. Jennifer Buchanan, Past-President of the Canadian Association for Music Therapy and owner of JB Music Therapy, shares a descriptive account of an interactive group music therapy session for young children with visual impairments.

Editor's Note from Meagan Hughes: From Woman to Woman is a collaborative project between Musicians without Borders (Netherlands) and Snaga Žene (meaning 'Women Power') based in Bośnia i Hercegovina. The project uses music to address severe, persistent war-related trauma among women in Eastern Bosnia. More specifically, From Woman to Woman introduces the use of the voice and the body - singing and body percussion in the broadest sense of the word - as a powerful supplement to existing medical and psychosocial support programs. http://www.musicianswithoutborders.org

MUSIC THERAPY & SOUND HEALING

Keep Breathing: Music for Speech, for Life

by Natasha Thomas

Imagine running into someone you haven’t seen in a long time. You recognize their face and feel pleased to see them, your arms open wide for a hug and you say “Hello! How ARE you?” before you can realize what you really want to know is Who they are – you’ve completely forgotten their name...
