Musical Therapy: Power of Music
There is magic in music. Try an experiment. Humming while remembering a song. You’ll notice that you don’t remember the song like everything else, but it just plays in your mind. Music has a wonderful ability to influence emotions. It can give enthusiasm, peace, and happiness, but it can also make emotional. Although music is an integral part of life by recognizing its merits, we can also use it as therapy. Sweet music has a psychological effect on the general population as well as the hospitalized patients. It has been seen in studies that this makes patients feel better immediately.
A good mood and happy thoughts prove good health. They become optimistic, even if it is only for a few hours or a few days. But the energy they get helps them forget their pain for a while and get better. Many researchers believe that music, especially classical music, is good for us. Listening to melodious music and attending concerts on a regular basis can keep you much younger than you were. Whether it was because of stress relief or other properties, we saw a reduction in the risk of death. This slows down the process of aging of the arteries. Indians had long ago recognized and developed the power of ragas.
Not only listening to music but playing an instrument by yourself is also beneficial. Researchers at Imperial College London administered music therapy, but no drugs, to a group of schizophrenia patients over 8-12 sessions of 45 minutes a week. The group was not played their favorite music but was given 45 minutes to try out their favorite instruments. The results showed that playing musical instruments and listening to music led to relaxation and reduced psychiatric symptoms.
