by   -  June 26th, 2014

Music is as old as time itself and as profound as we allow it to be. Those who listen can find music even in the most mundane things; the hum of the furnace against the ticking of the clock, and the rotating of the dryer! Or perhaps the gently melody in blades of grass bending to the wind, mixing with the sound of crickets nearby. Research has shown that music can drastically affect our physiology, and our neurology, right down to our perception of pain.

Music therapy as a source of healing has been around for centuries. In fact, Plato is known to have said, "Music affected the emotions and could influence the character of an individual."
