In recent days apart from medicinal treatment, some other unconventional method of treatment for certain specific diseases are being administered. One of them is music therapy. It would be for our knowledge if we discuss the types of diseases treated using music, its fruitfulness and affordability.

It can work to relax you or to give you energy, but I don't know about any other uses. I do know that your heart beat will change to keep the rhythm of the music you listen to. That's one reason that some "rock" music is harmful.

playing guitar is great.......that is a great recreation......you should not take it jokingly.....but you should take this as challenge...........and you would find that someone who had desperation for sleep and used to take sleeping pills to have a sound sleep will really fall asleep listening to your musical creation,..............will that not be a great experience for u..........

I think it is useful, some shrink like to use music to make their patients comfortable. different kinds of music can give us different feeling. Some researchers use music to test the effection for monkeys. The monkeys who listen to the quiet music, they become more and more gentle. On the other hand the monkeys who listen to the rock music, they are very irritable.

Hi there, I believe that music therapy works on some aspect of disease such as psychopathy or any other disease related to spirit. Music therapy can smooth the mood of the patient, and that will be a good result of the disease in my opinion.

I think it works as a relaxation technique. It does help release our stresses whenever we feel bad, it calms our senses. To the point of treating certain diseases, I'm not sure about that.
