Learn More What Is Music Therapy? An established health profession that can provide you and your loved ones with a safe environment where music is used to address the physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals. Music Therapy: How It Works A treatment plan is created, and the long and short-term goals are set, after assessing the needs, but most of all the strengths, as we tend to focus and begin from them in order to reach our therapeutic goals. The treatment plan can include creating, singing, moving to, and/or listening to music. Clinical Improvisation is the main tool in Music Therapy practice. As clients’ abilities strengthen it transfers to other areas of their lives. Music therapy can provide avenues for communication to those who cannot or find it difficult to express themselves orally. The work itself and the outcomes are very powerful. About Maria Reach Maria through her Reach Maria through her website. Follow Musiking Studio Music Therapy Services on Facebook.
