Is there such a thing as Music Therapy?

In the modern hectic world of stress and pressures, the science of healing has gotten to be more popular.. most common of which is the massage therapy which soothes the muscle and makes you relax. Another is aroma therapy , with the use of the natural essence and incinerated in oil burners, the aroma relieves muscle tension and relaxes the olfactory senses and relieves respiratory allergies. There is also Hydro therapy.. laugh therapy... but I haven't heard of music therapy yet, to relieve stress from everyday life. I think this is a plausible idea... What do you think?

Yes, indeed, I agree with you. Listening to music certainly relieves one of the stresses. I listen to music every evening after I get back home from work. My favorite music is classical music, Strauss, Mozart, Brahms, and more. That is my favorite way of getting rid of the stresses of the long work day. It then makes me sleep refreshed and relaxed !

Yes I believe there is. Studies show that some types of music stimulate the brain while some relax it. When I feel so tense and anxious, I listen to Sarah Mclachlan's 'Angel' repeatedly and after 3 or 4 reps of the song I feel relaxed, and one time I even fell asleep. If you're a Christian, I would recommend 'Still' by Hillsongs. It's a reassuring song that also helps calm my nerves.
