Music Therapy for Injury Rehabilitation

At Muse for Life in Sandy Springs Atlanta, we give private & group music therapy sessions for individuals who have suffered injuries of various types. Because of music's multi-sensory nature, music therapy can work on many levels for injury rehabilitation.

On the musculo-skeletal level, playing various instruments can help to facilitate movements, muscular development, and proper bone growth within areas that have been effected by an injury.

On a cognitive level, music therapy can facilitate cognitive developement and retraining for physical areas and functioning that has been impacted by an injury.

On the social level, music therapy sessions provide a context for socialization with the injury.

On the emotional level, music therapy provides a safe container for individuals to express their feelings related to the injury, and to develop healthy outlets for stress.
