Music therapy sessions for youth are proving very beneficial. An empowering way to express hurt and validation.
Music Therapy is used to decrease signs and feelings of depression, boost overall mood, reduce the perception of pain and restore overall health – not to mention that music taps into the brain reward systems.
Music can be a great way to express our feelings in a safe setting. The right music taps into the part of us that still feels whole – like our best self. There is much evidence to indicate that music therapy can improve mobility, memory, and language.
I have witnessed many amazing expressions of emotion through music production, the depth of lyrics expressed from the young explores past pain and thus starts the road towards healing.
