A revolution in healthcare, known as integrative health, is supporting the use of nontraditional treatments that take into account the needs and capacities of the whole person. Music therapy is supported by a growing body of evidence in favor of improved psychosocial, physical, neurological, emotional, and spiritual outcomes, in addition to quality of life, and its interventions serve individuals at home, in hospital, and wherever they might need a coping strategy.People encountering everyday stress, others with life-threatening or painful conditions, and anyone else open to self-discovery can benefit.
