Music in Medicine

Book cover
By: (1907-1979)

Music in Medicine by Sidney Licht explores the powerful connection between music and healing. Licht delves into the history of medical music therapy, showcasing the ways in which sound can positively impact our physical and mental well-being.

The book offers a wide range of examples to support its premise, from the soothing melodies played in hospitals to the use of music as a form of therapy for patients with various conditions. Licht's writing is accessible and engaging, making it easy for readers to understand the intricate relationship between music and medicine.

One of the highlights of the book is Licht's discussion of the science behind the healing properties of music. He presents compelling research that demonstrates how music can reduce stress, alleviate pain, and improve overall health outcomes. This evidence-based approach adds depth and credibility to the book's arguments.

Overall, Music in Medicine is a thought-provoking and enlightening read that will appeal to anyone interested in the intersection of music and healthcare. It's a valuable resource for healthcare professionals, music therapists, and music enthusiasts alike. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking to explore the healing power of music.

Book Description:
In spite of a spirited rebirth of the movement towards the establishment of a system of healing based on music, there are many valuable uses of music in medicine which might suffer a like fate unless a critical analysis of the worth of music as a therapeutic agent is effected before Musical Therapy reaches the dubious distinction of classification as a healing cult.

This book has been written with a view to preserving for medicine that which is good for patients, and in an attempt to aid musicians under medical guidance in using music to help the sick.
