How Does Music Help in Rehab?
Music in therapy proves helpful for many people. After the September 11, 2001 events in New York City, the AMTA used music to help people heal from their trauma through the NYC Music Therapy Relief Project. Under therapists’ care, people in the project experienced great advancements in coping skills development, expression of feelings, self-esteem building and relaxation. Music also helps you cope with daily stress or crises that arise in your future, as shown by the New York City project.
Music helps you relax, breathe fully, reduce your anxiety and feel less pain. Through music, you gain many benefits, including:
- Expression of emotions without words
- Anxiety and stress relief
- Positive mood and emotions
- Deeper engagement in your treatment
- Greater control, confidence, and empowerment
- Lower blood pressure, reduced heart rate, and relaxed muscles
From this type of therapy, you can also gain greater emotional intimacy with other people, reduce social anxiety and relax within group settings. Music helps you enjoy time with others in meaningful, creative and positive ways.
Through music, you build self-esteem and personal insight. You feel more in control over your life, gain greater awareness of your environment, and feel healthier feelings and thoughts.
