Pain Management

Studies have shown that music therapy is effective for pain management. Music changes our feelings by affecting our hormones. Listening to music we like boosts dopamine (our feel-good hormone), and increases oxytocin (the feeling of connection with others). Music therapists thusly use music as an effective tool for distracting from pain, improving mood, and increasing relaxation.
