Music therapy in translation from Greek means “treatment with music”, and not for nothing, because the ancient Greeks actively used this type of art to treat people.
Today, music therapy is a modern discipline at the intersection of neurophysiology, psychology, reflexology and musicology. The goal of music therapy is to balance the emotional state, promote relaxation and reloading, develop creative potential, and help in the normalization of physical condition.
Music therapy originates from the origin of human history. Ancient people had to fight for survival in various ways, including magic: music was used as a means of dispersing diseases, along with rituals. In ancient times, music was a very simple action: tapping on a stone or wood in a certain rhythm. Well, the sounds of nature were undoubtedly serious helpers for the tribes.
Amazing! Vibrations that are formed from the sounds of musical instruments can reach deep-lying tissues, massage internal organs and stimulate blood circulation in them, affect the bone structure and the body as a whole. A similar effect is achieved with massage or yoga.
Of course, music therapy, as well as art therapy, does not completely replace classical medicine, but it is quite capable of promoting it on a psychoemotional level and reducing the number of necessary medications, including painkillers.
