Music is Medicine!

When people listen to music they enjoy, it can reduce stress, anxiety, and pain, and it can help seniors get up and moving more. Music brings people together, building community and connection. Music is often used therapeutically in senior facilities and communities. Research has shown that active involvement with music enhances its neurological benefits and helps reactivate memories not accessed in routine social interactions.  “RhythmHealing” is a program for seniors to connect with each other and have fun and tune into their bodies and emotions playing rhythms on yoga balls, hand drums and percussion reaping the incredible health benefits of music, rhythm, and motion.
