Music has always been a very important part of our lives, from childhood to our being an adult. As a part of our experience, music can have both a physiological and psychological affect upon us as human beings. In addition to the influence that it has on our life, music also has many therapeutic qualities and has been utilized in promoting a variety of healings throughout the ages. As we know further, music can be a very powerful medium for altering our state, of changing how we actually feel. More specifically music can be very effective in producing a very deep and healing state of relaxation and in the process, reduce stress and even promote sleep. Music can also be used to assist one in improving his or her self-esteem and furthering an individuals personal growth and development, even his or her transformation and recovery.
As a therapist working with individuals in recovery at the drug rehab center Holistic Addiction Treatment Program, I always use therapeutic relaxation music in my clinical and counseling work. I have repeatedly found that when I use therapeutic relaxation music during both an individual and group counseling session that my clients do more productive work, are able to focus more effectively on themselves and the issues that they are becoming present to because they are more relaxed, focused and centered and as a result, better able to concentrate. Being relaxed during the counseling process always tends to generate more productive results for the individual being counseled. Therapeutic relaxation music can be a very effective and powerful aid for assisting a client to reach resolution with respect to that which he or she is working on with their mental health or addiction counselor.
