Transcript of Healing in Harmony

In a study of patients receiving PT/OT after TBI or stroke, addition of music therapy to standard rehab resulted in improved interaction with family and higher level of motivation/involvement in therapy. (Nayak et al 2000)
Emotional Health
In an RCT studying working-age people (18-50) with depression, music therapy + standard care (psychotherapy +/- medication) was more effective than standard care alone at improving depression and anxiety symptoms as well as general functioning. (Erkkilä et al 2011)
Movement & Exercise
A 2007 study suggested that music therapy may improve gastric motility and may be used to stimulate gastric emptying, based on its result that when participants listened to provided music and found it enjoyable, they had higher amplitudes of gastric myoelectrical activity than their baseline. (Lin et al 2007)
Life Meaning & Purpose
Using musical presentation, in which "people in a group setting present themselves through musical pieces of their choice," as a variable, a 2010 study of groups of students and drug abusers showed that sense of purpose in life was enhanced for experimental sub-groups compared to control sub-groups. (Bensimon & Gilboa 2010)
Healing in Harmony
Music as an Integrative Medicine Intervention
Eboné Ingram

There is a considerable body of research dealing with the effects of music during exercise; in non-athletes, it has been found to promote positive affect and reduced rate of perceived exertion, both of which can increase adherence to an exercise program. (Karageorghis et al 2012)
Health Behavior
Research looking at the affect of music on food/drink consumption suggests that the presence of music can influence amount of consumption, increased tempo and/or loudness of music may correlate with increased rates of consumption, and that auditory stimuli may affect the perception of food/drink items. (Spence & Shankar 2010)
Mind-Body Connection
Indications that music therapy can be effective for tinnitus, restoration of motor function, chronic pain, and reduction of stress. (Bernatzky et al 2011)
