Many say that music is a means by which people from all over the world can connect. It needs no language to make us share feelings and make us feel better. It is also said that music helps us deal with our issues and promotes positive changes in our wellbeing as individuals.

But how does music really work inside our brains? Specialists have researched the topic and have discovered that it generates an emotional response in the listener, regardless of his/her illness or health. It also stimulates relaxation and therefore reduces stress. A lot of psychological responses are related thus to music and the way we react to it.

The benefits resulted from that are obviously numerous, such as lowering the blood pressure, improve respiration, reduce heart rate, better cardiac performance and reduced tension in muscles.

Aside from that, music has been proven to be processed by both hemispheres of a human brain. Tests have shown that it helps improving the language and speech functions as well as self expression and creativity. Children, especially those who suffer from different infantile illnesses, such as autism spectrum disorder, and elders, suffering from dementia, have responded very well to music therapy and the benefits were obvious to researchers all over the world.

Music therapy has become very popular among psychologists. Although it has been used since ancient times, it is now that we realize, step by step, that our ancestors were right when using it for relaxation. There are numerous cases in which the traditional methods of dealing with mental issues have failed and music therapy did the trick. There are even special colleges that prepare such therapists and their knowledge proved very helpful in developmental and early intervention programs, correctional institutions and special education programs.
