Abstract

Music therapy consists of evidence-based intervention from a clinical perspective, such as wellness, stress management, and physical pain-reducing techniques. However, these are just to name a few, as music therapy has been quantified throughout the years. Therapeutic practices do not always have to be one-on-one talk therapy, but therapy can incorporate concepts that tackle uncovered areas in the unconscious mind. Listening to music is already a relaxing luxury we enjoy in our free time and yet it can provide so many health improvements for clients. One concept that should definitely be valued is creating a safe space for the patient and understanding what they are going through before therapy begins. In effect, they will be able to settle and get themselves to a place where they can take in the wonderful music. The enjoyment of the music is perceived as simple, but the enjoyment can be taken to new heights where clients actually feel the healing being done by the music. By conducting an interview and participant-observation with Meryl Brown (MM, MT-BC), research will be brought to light on how natural remedies (listening to music) can aid the physical body and the mental body. The physical body, mental body, and spiritual body need to be taken into account, and is not an easy task to handle for every professional. However, with 14 years of experience and being a registered member with the National Provider Identifier database since November 29 of 2007, Meryl Brown specializes in how music therapy can obtain respiratory and developmental benefits. If these are just a couple of benefits that are listed, imagine how many benefits music therapy can create for so many different people. The art of how music therapy interests and captures people all around the world, in addition to how practitioners personalize their work, will be displayed on posters. Photos will also be taken, in order to preserve the experience.
