|Music and sound have been used therapeutically for thousands of years, dating back to ancient Greece, Egypt, China, and India. Sound and music as therapy have been used for the eradication and management of conditions through both its scientific and artistic grounding. Evidence supports cardiovascular, psycho-emotional, neuroendocrine, and neurophysiological benefits from listening to music and using the spoken voice as a tool for healing. It harnesses the potential to restore, maintain, and improve health in the body. Proper choice of the musical key and tone, the specific arrangement, melody and vocal articulation and resonance contribute to the overall therapeutic benefit of music. Upon completion of this course the learner will understand how to begin facilitating change in patient outcomes and their own quality of life through the use of music and sound as medicine. This Seminar-on-Demand is 3 contact hours in length (check your state’s approval status in the state specific course catalog for your profession).
