Communicate your feelings via Music-Therapy

To communicate your emotions is not always an easy task to do.

 

In the previous article, we talked about accepting the feeling of not being okay; we acknowledged that even if we are feeling sad, hurt or heartbroken, we should never hide and ignore our emotions. Also, we mentioned that it is good to STOP for a moment, TAKE a deep BREATHE, and understand our feelings.

Music-Therapy and communicating emotions:

 

Music has been existing since the dawn of time and we all realize that it affects our brain; it stimulates the production of dopamine (the neurotransmitter of pleasure) and inhibits the production of cortisol (the stress hormone).

 

Using constituent elements of the music and the music itself can help to enter into communication with individuals since it establishes a communication that goes beyond words. Hence, it becomes a bridge between the world of the individual and the outside world.

 

Precisely on this month, we celebrate the international day of “Music-Therapy” and March is considered as the music-therapy awareness month. But, what is “Music-Therapy”? How we define it? And how it could help us cope with emotions and communicate them?

 

The first thing to note is that Music-Therapy has nothing to do with a traditional music class or with a knowledge of playing an instrument. Rather, it involves expressing ourselves through sounds and not just music instruments; it embraces sound in all its forms, which can involve instruments, but also tables, wall, chairs, or even our own body.

 

Thus, Music-Therapy is properly considered to be a practice of care, support or rehabilitation that provides a means of expressing and communicating our emotions and affectivity without words.
