|"Music is therapy for the soul." ancient Greeks|
I heard an interesting talk yesterday about the history of using music for healing. Recent research has proven that music can lift depression, change brain waves, and assist those who are dying. But, it has to be the right music. Harps are especially good in hospice situations, and music therapists often come and play them to calm and support people. I often choose silence, but I also know that music can move me emotionally. What kind of music do you find supportive? As caregivers, it is good for us to use all tools available to support ourselves and our loved one.
