Music therapy
(MYOO-zik THAIR-re-pee)


[Eng.]


The use of music to cure or to bring relief. It is uncertain how music does cure pain, but it has been proven effective in many situations. It has been suggested that the rhythm and order are factors that generate mental healing, and that its emotional factor stimulates patients, often when all other attempts to stimulate them have failed.
