Music therapy is a real cure for stress and sleep disorders. The sound acts on the hypothalamic-hypophysial axis and on the autonomic nervous system and is able to modulate some of the metabolic responses of our body: the notes trigger the production of endorphins, improve mood and promote relaxation.
Music therapy is a treatment that uses music as an educational, rehabilitative and therapeutic tool. The musical experience has a beneficial impact on cognitive functions, motor skills and emotional development. It is applied in pregnancy and educational settings, as well as in oncological, palliative, and geriatric medicine. It is successfully associated with psychiatry: it reduces the symptoms of schizophrenia, controls states of anxiety, and can be an aid for children with autism.
In humans, hearing is the sense that develops first. At three months gestation, the fetus is already able to hear, and two months after birth, it can pick up a rhythm. For children, soothing music is more than an external stimulus to reduce stress levels. Music promotes physical, psychological and cognitive development and is responsible for the child's language development and neural connections.
There are few living beings capable of remaining indifferent to sounds and music: not only people, but also animals and plants react to sound stimuli. In the animal world, dogs and cats are particularly sensitive: as happens for humans, even if the musical notes are a stimulus for the system. They activate specific areas that release chemical neuromediators capable of putting our four-legged friends in a state of psychophysical well-being.
