Why is it important?

The whole body, non traditional approach to healing through rhythm and the success we had with the patient deserves a further look into why this new approach worked.


I hope this article creates awareness to the alternative methods used to help heal. This patient’s quality of life improved because of the power of rhythm, repetition and active music listening. My hope is this article can help others as well as open doors that have never been opened before.
