Many hospitals and health institutions have been treating patients as "consumers." This mindset seems to help institutions provide better customer service and increase the prominence of patient's rights, but as the article points out, it may be causing some breakdowns in efficient treatment...


Editor's Note from Bernice Chu: A highly structure healthcare system may bring many benefits to patients, families, and their employees. However, are there times when the system may be too structured? Is there a tendency for healthcare professionals to treat patients as 'consumers' over time? Daniel Tague explores this interesting topic.

Music Therapy & Sound Healing

by Susan Alexjander, MA

Is the body creating music? Are we, as the composer Charles Ives felt, walking, talking musicians, capable of creating our own symphonies? The answer seems to be an increasingly obvious "yes," as we study the body, its brainwaves, heartbeat, rhythms of blood circulation, endocrine cycles, right up to the microwave level of organ vibration. On the fastest level, we reach the rates of vibration of infrared light, as molecules and their atomic structures vibrate and jiggle, stretch, and bend...

Music Therapy & Sound Healing

by Vera Otsuka, MT

Traditionally, music has been known as a form of entertainment, relaxation, and in many cultures, a form of healing. Over time, and especially since the 1950’s, music has been used in a much more systematic approach in its application to serve the needs of others...

Editor's Note from Rebecca McClary:
Hope University, in Anaheim, CA, is a fine-arts infused day-program for adults with developmental disabilities. Its slogan is to "train the talent and diminish the disability." In Vera Otsuka’s article she discusses what music therapy is and how it is used to support the goals of their very talented students.

Editor's Note from Melinda Wilson: The healing power of moving to a steady rhythmic pulse has been recognized by many cultures. African dance movements are traditionally derived from observations of nature.  In this video, Wyoma, a teacher and professional dancer, leads viewers in an interactive African dance session, inspired by the movements of animals, trees, and the elements. Follow along with her routine to experince the healing qualities of a moving meditation guided by the sound of an African drum.

Music Therapy & Sound Healing

by Dena Register, PhD, MT-BC

Part of being a music therapist is sharing your stories—incredible stories—of the triumphs, both great and small, that you encounter every day. 

We often have the opportunity to witness the absolute best in the human condition, from the new parents who are learning to adapt and support their pre-mature infant to the family who is grappling with a hospice diagnosis of a loved one...

It’s like creating handicap-parking spots.
It’s like building on-ramps.
It’s like making reachable doorknobs.


We live in a culture of musical disability. "Music is healing" a message we’ve inherited from indigenous tribal people seems to be rarely shared...

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...
