The Therapeutic Power of Music
Anyone who has ever had a favorite song, or felt moved by a musical performance can attest first-hand to the therapeutic properties of music. A song has the power to take you from happy to sad and back to happy again in a matter of minutes.
Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches takes advantage of music’s therapeutic quality in order to help our patients gain power over addiction. We offer multiple music therapy programs in addition to our other techniques. An example of a session in our group music therapies includes patients beating steadily on a drum in an effort to awaken dormant feelings. Music therapy has been proven to reduce anxiety, alleviate pain, lower blood pressure and increase a person’s motivation.
