Ive been reading a book called "The miracle of Music Therapy" by Rajender Menen. the book discusses the healing powers of sound and music. Its been the best book so far alive ben reading mostly Journals.
The main topics are on how music reduces anxiety, stress and pain. There is also a few examples on how music can boost emotional and physical well being. This all fits in nicely with the research I'm doing.
Something i never really went much into is the claims on how music can help children with learning difficulties. There are many claims which i believe just out of sheer faith. My favourites included:
Music cures insomnia, depression, epilepsy, strokes, eases labour pains and promotes rehabilitation. These are all great ideas but i also need the proof. Im looking to read lots more on the subject as we go through the project.
