With Music

In Musicophilia (2007) Oliver Sacks wrote about the therapeutic potential of music to help calm, animate, comfort, organize, and synchronize humans.

Music Therapists Schneck and Berger (2006) developed a system using music to calm and redirect fear responses for persons with easily activated sympathetic nervous systems.

Music has also been used as a therapeutic treatment for such physiological conditions as chronic pain (Patrick, 1999).
