Music Therapy in Palliative Care, Music Therapy Association of British Columbia:"When we are working with persons for whom a medical cure is no longer possible, music therapy can improve the quality of life by addressing the emotional, spiritual and physical needs that may arise during this time. Music experiences utilized in palliative care may include music listening, discussion of specially chosen lyrics, songwriting, improvisation, singing and playing instruments. A person's musical, cultural and religious background may be incorporated into the session, providing a personalized approach. In all instances, respect for the patient’s needs and preferences is of primary importance. For terminally ill persons, music therapy can serve as a catalyst to establish both verbal and non-verbal communication. The skilled use of music can facilitate emotional self-expression and provide a supportive and non-threatening environment with opportunities to confront fears and discuss present concerns. Musical associations can facilitate life review and assist in resolving significant personal issues."

Music Therapy Research Center, Editorial:"No innovation has gained such a fast foothold and recognition among medical experts as the utilisation of the natural laws of harmony. When one considers that the term Medical Resonance Therapy Music was only coined 10 years ago, and then looks at the present level of documentation on research and developments in this new branch of MEDICINE, and the statements of leading medical experts from many fields such as hormone research, gynaecology, paediatrics, dermatology, research into headaches, intensive care MEDICINE etc. right up to international recognition as the most successful “anti-stress remedy in the world” at the International Conference “Society, Stress and Health” of the World Health Organisation (WHO), then it is also worthwhile examining the causes for such enormous medical success more closely."
