Can listening to music be considered a form of therapy?

April 6, 2017 7:21pm CST
No matter the reason... To forget some problem, either to relieve some tension, or to think about life or just to relax and forget time... Do you think listening to music can be considered a form of therapy? In my opinion, yes... Because it always works (at least for me ). The results are always great.

It always works for me, too. We've exposed my granddaughter to music since before she was born and 3 years later she always calms down when she hears music, pays attention whatever she is doing, and is drawn to it. I'll go as far as to say music is probably essential to a happy life.

Music brings the best emotions you have. But I don't listen to sad songs lately.lol It brings back the brokenhearted moment with my ex.

Music is great therapy! I listened to music when I was in labor and it helped me get through it. I listen to music when I'm down and when I'm happy. I also love singing. =)

I think I can, in a way. But not in a 100% effective way as the problems or pain will still be there when you're done listening to the music.. same as drinking your problems away.

I like to listen to sad songs to get sadness "out of my system." Check the comments on my "happy" YouTube video. Vanny and I are going at there.

Music Therapy is recognized enough that some insurance companies will pay for it. Several of us have written about Music Therapy for those with Parkinson's and other illnesses.

It is. And not only because I say so, but because it is used.

Of course yea. Music is the greatest healer. It heals even the energy circle of human body. See generally we feel low or suppressed or tired or sick when the energy circle of our body is disturbed due to some reason. The right music has the power to heal it. And for me ,as I am a die heart fan of music, more than a medicine ,it's my life.

@TheInvisibleTherapy yes, music is the best self therapy. But sometimes, I prefer watching few movie-scenes I like, instead of only listening music as a boost

Ofcourse yes. Music is a beautiful creation. And it can moves our boredom, it can changes our mood, and can celebrate the joy and what not.

I think so. But Vanny and I are having a big argument on one of my YouTube videos about whether we should listen to happy music all the time, or dive into sad music now and then. Maybe you can join in! Check the comments.
