Treatment through Sounds, or Music Therapy

Music therapy is a form of therapy that utilizes sound and music to aid in the treatment of various conditions. The earliest mentions of 'music therapy' date back to 1000 BC, and in the 20th century, music was officially recognized as a form of therapy. It is a therapeutic method that acts on the entire body, both physically and emotionally. Research shows that auditory stimuli affect the sense of hearing and influence our brain, increasing its plasticity. Music therapy can take various forms, such as active actions (singing, playing instruments), listening to music with relaxation and visualization, or even tailoring therapy to the sound wave of tuning forks.

This therapy can be applied in various fields of medicine, from psychiatry and neurology to surgery and oncology. It effectively supports blood pressure regulation, heart function, pain reduction, improved concentration, anxiety and stress reduction, and many other health benefits. Music therapy is effective in the treatment and support of individuals with depression, schizophrenia, behavioral disorders, muscle tension disorders, dementia, brain disorders, as well as intellectual disabilities in children and adults, and autism spectrum disorders. Music therapy also prevents panic attacks, reduces neuroses and psychosomatic disorders, and has a positive impact on mental well-being, helping to reduce depression, anxiety, and improve self-esteem and sleep quality.
