Music Therapy

At Milwaukee Women’s Recovery Center, we offer both music therapy to all our clients in partnership with Healing Harmonies  

What is music therapy? 

Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions, created and prescribed to address non-musical individualized goals and areas of need within a therapeutic relationship by a Board-Certified Music Therapist.

Who can benefit from Music therapy? 

Music therapy can benefit many individuals.

The diverse nature of music means it can be applied in the treatment of concerns both physical and psychological.

In some instances, the therapeutic use of music has been able to help people in ways that other forms of therapy have not, as it can sometimes elicit responses that may not appear through more traditional forms of treatment.

When people find it difficult to express themselves verbally, they may display a greater degree of interest and engagement in music therapy than they would in a more traditional form of therapy.

Because music can evoke positive emotions and stimulate reward centers in the brain, music therapy is often able to alleviate symptoms of mental health concerns such as: 

  • Depression
  • Mood-related concerns
  • Anxiety
  • Schizophrenia
  • Substance dependency
  • Autism
  • Personality issues
  • Insomnia
  • Dementia
