Music therapy as a branch of science was formed in the middle of the 20th century, although the healing effects of music were already mentioned in ancient civilizations.
Music therapy is a type of psychotherapy, a health care activity performed by a qualified music therapist, who helps people to improve, maintain, restore and strengthen their health. It is achieved through music, various means of musical expression and therapeutic relationships. The focus lies on the client's therapeutic needs, experiencing the effects of music and musical self-expression.
Music therapy is also called "nonverbal" psychotherapy. It is beneficial for premature babies; children with developmental disabilities (who are unable to communicate verbally); stroke patients with impaired speech function; patients suffering from various mental disorders or illnesses who find it difficult to combine thoughts into a single sentence. In such complex situations, where the word loses its power, music comes to the rescue as an expression of feelings.
Nowadays more and more people seek self-knowledge, self-expression, personal growth and, therefore, become interested in music therapy.
During therapy, music becomes a "medium" that helps the client to connect with himself/herself and the environment around him/her. The client can experience the process of self-perception, self-expression, self-realization. In this way, it promotes awareness of life processes and taking responsibility for one's own existence. Clients' spiritual, mental and physical difficulties are associated with musical / creative means of expression, which increase awareness and lead to recovery.
