Have you ever felt emotionally or physically moved by music? Music is a powerful medium, and when it is facilitated by a trained therapist, it can have a very healing and therapeutic effect. Music has the power to create refuge from pain and physical discomfort. There are many ways that music therapists use music to specifically address pain. Music therapists may use music to directly engage in music through playing instruments or singing, they may direct you through verbal prompting to release tension and breathe with music, and they may integrate the experience of pain into the instrument which then releases the pain from the body. Stress works similarly in the body as pain, often causing muscles to contract and cause tension, and music interventions used for stress and pain are very similar.
