Title: Music for Healing


1
Music for Healing
  • Daryne Rockett, LCSW, CMP

2
The Significance of Music
  • Communicates both with lyrics and beyond words
  • Tells our stories
  • Moves us to laughter, to tears, to dance
  • Accompanies important ceremonies
  • Provides a gateway to memories

3
Consider this piece of music. Listen with your
eyes closed and allow it to tell you a story
  • What emotions did the piece evoke?
  • What images come to mind?
  • What story does it awaken in you?

4
What memories does this piece evoke for you?
5
Now focus on the physiological response in your
body to this piece of music
  • What did you notice your body doing?
  • What did the music remind you of?

6
Healing Benefits of Music
  • Reduces pain
  • Increases oxygen levels in the blood
  • Steadies respiration and heart rhythm
  • Reduces anxiety and fear
  • Reduces nausea
  • Provides a focus different from hospital machines
  • Boosts immune response

7
Pain Reliever with No Damaging Side Effects
  • At St. Agnes Hospital in Baltimore, patients in
    critical care units listen to classical music.
  • Half an hour of music produced the same effect
    as ten milligrams of valium.
  • -Dr. Raymond Bahr
  • Director Coronary Care Unit

8
How does music heal?
  • Distraction
  • Entrainment

9
Distraction
  • A loud repetitive sound sends a constant signal
    to the cortex, masking input from other senses
    like vision, touch, and smell.

10
Entrainment To Seek and Match
  • Heart Rate 60-80 Beats per Minute
  • Breath 12-20 Breaths/Minute Waking
    6-8 Breaths/Minute Sleeping
  • Brain Beta Waking 15-40 Cycles/Second Alpha
    Daydreaming 9-14 Theta Trance 5-8
    Delta Deep Sleep 1.5-4

11
Frequency of Vibrations
  • High pitched sounds increase stimulation
  • Low frequency sounds are grounding

12
Principles of the Music Practitioner
  • Patient is the center of focus
  • Intent to provide an environment for healing
  • Whole person concept of mind, body, spirit, and
    emotion

13
Holistic Health
  • Outside of sleep, breathing, nutrition and to
    some extent exercise. . . probably no behavior
    comes close to the power and diversity of music
    in eliciting homeodynamic shifts."
  • -Mark Ryder
  • The Rhythmic Language of
  • Health and Disease

14
Why live music?
  • Responsive to the changing state of the
    patient
  • Vibration of live instrument
  • Human connection

15
Four Categories of Clients
  • Acutely ill Rhythmic music
  • Chronically ill All Styles
  • Children and Elders Familiar Music
  • Actively Dying Arrhythmic music

16
Music Thanatology
  • The delivery of music has everything to do with
    leading a patient from a feeling of safety to
    openness and release.
  • Letting go is some of the hardest work we can
    do, either as a patient or as a musician.
  • -Therese Schroeder-Sheker
  • Chalice of Repose Project

17
Vibrations and Cancer
The pictures above were taken while a xylophone
was used over a period of fourteen minutes
playing the Ionian Scale (C,D,E,F,G,A,B,C,D)
18
  • "The human voice carries something in its
    vibration that makes it more powerful than any
    musical instrument consciousness.
  • It appeared that the cancer cells were not
    able to support a progressive accumulation of
    vibratory frequencies and were destroyed."
  • -Fabien Maman

19

  • I AM MUSIC Most ancient of the arts. I am more
    than ancient I am eternal. Even before life
    began upon this earth, I was here in the winds
    and the waves. When the first trees and flowers
    and grasses appeared, I was among them. And when
    people came, I at once became the most delicate,
    most subtle and most powerful medium for the
    expression of emotions

23
  • When people were little better than beasts, I
    influenced them for their good. In all ages, I
    have inspired people with hope, kindled their
    love, given a voice to their joys, cheered them
    on to valorous deeds, and soothed them in times
    of despair. I have played a great part in the
    drama of life, whose end and purpose are the
    complete perfection of human nature

24
  • Through my influence, humankind has been
    uplifted, sweetened and refined. With the aid of
    mankind, I have become a Fine Art I have a
    myriad of voices and instruments. I am in the
    hearts of all people and on their tongues in all
    lands, among all peoples the ignorant and
    unlettered know me, not less than the rich and
    the learned

25
  • ..For I speak to all people in a language that
    all understand. Even the deaf hear me, if they
    but listen to the voices of their own souls. I
    am the food of love. I have taught gentleness
    and peace and I have led people to heroic deeds.
    I comfort the lonely, and I harmonize the
    discord of crowds. I am a necessary luxury to
    all.
  • I AM MUSIC.
