Music and medicine - Future directions for music therapy?

Abstract

In the last ten years, there has been a resurgence of interest in holistic approaches to health care, and in medical applications of music. Research findings suggest that music can have a valuable role in stress management and biofeedback, in the management of medical and dental pain, in psychoneuroimmunology, and in performing arts medicine. It is important for music therapists to be aware of these developments which offer exciting new prospects for music therapy practice and research.
