Music therapy is defined by the American Psychological Association as “evidence based use of music in clinical situations that help people reach desired health outcomes”.
Music has been found to help reduce stress, decrease anxiety, and improve heart function. Yes! Even heart health! Dr. Levin from American Psychological Association supports this further, “We’ve seen evidence now that music can alter brain chemistry and even the production of cytokines, immunoglobin A, and other components of a healthy immune system”.
