Music Therapy And Stroke

So what is the connection between music and healing?

That’s basically what the whole field of Music Therapy is all about. Listening to music has been found not only to ease depression and lift spirits, but also to increase concentration and restore a certain amount of impaired cognition.

However even more powerful than listening to it, is creating it. Creating music, whether singing, playing an instrument or just actively following along to a tune is even more effective and therapeutic. Below is a slightly old video of a stroke survivor who recovered most remarkably from the effects of stroke using the power of music to the point where he even released a couple of albums. Inspiring stuff!
