Music and sound have been used therapeutically for thousands of years, dating back to ancient Greece, Egypt, China, and India. Sound and music as therapy have been used for the eradication and management of conditions through both its scientific and artistic grounding.

It harnesses the potential to restore, maintain, and improve health in the body. Proper choice of the musical key and tone, the specific arrangement, melody and vocal articulation and resonance contribute to the overall therapeutic benefit of music.
