In this episode Steve Toll, National Director of Prescription Music, highlights how therapeutic music programs stimulate cognitive functioning, motivate us to move, evoke emotion and imagery and connect us to ourselves and others. For the last ten years his program has observed how music is an effective alternative treatment for those suffering with all forms of Dementia as well as many other diseases and conditions. These observations combined with scientific research on how the brain hears and remembers music lead to the development of a philosophy of care using music. This powerful medium can be utilized by everyone to maintain your brain, manage stress and anxiety and to enhance quality of life.
