Speech/Training Topic
Music: The art or medicine?
Topic abstract
The application of music therapy is present since ancient times. We can find it in the biblical sources, shamanistic rituals and theological literature. Healing by the music is present in all cultures throughout human history, until now. It is a discipline that accompanied the development of medicine from its beginnings. The application of music in medicine first was defined by the famous ancient Greek philosopher, mathematician, physician and musicologist Pythagoras in the 6th century BC. He noted that "Music is good for the soul and healing to the body." We are listening music in order to feel better and comfortable. Pythagoras was the first who divided music into 'good and bad', looking at its impact on human health. From that time, medicine is far advanced, as well as the use of music in healing, too.
There is a question: Is the use of music in the treatment of certain diseases can be controlled, that the music can be applied as a drug, at fixed "dose"? Is it possible to choose such music that it has the optimal effect on our bodies and whose positive effects prolonged during 24 hours? Whether music can be "tamed"? Modern research has shown that it is possible.
