Anyone may benefit from customized therapeutic music. Such service is frequently offered to patients who are suffering with pain, receiving dialysis or chemotherapy treatments, who are critically or chronically ill, bed ridden, or actively dying. Even premature infants benefit from live therapeutic music.
It is not necessary for the patient to interact physically or verbally with the Music Practitioner. Whether or not the patient is awake and aware is simply a factor in the style of music played. Research has shown that even comatose patients can benefit from the vibrational touch of live music.
Families and caregivers experience the peaceful tranquility of the therapeutic music sessions which create an environment of hope and courage in difficult times. Healthcare professionals value the clarity the music brings to a stressful workplace.
