Miracles of Music powers – Music Therapy:

Six-year-old girl responds to Music Therapy after being in coma for 60 days – A true story:

We all know that music therapy is an interpersonal process in which a trained music therapist uses music and all of its facets—physical, emotional, mental, social, aesthetic, and spiritual—to help patients to improve or maintain their health.

The music which is being presented in the therapeutic sessions does the difference on patients. Classical Music is a direct experience before being transformed into thought and feelings. It acts as vibration, which does the wonder on patients. The results are proven scientifically, many scholars have published research papers on this. Music therapy is a complementary form of medicine, in few situations it functions as alternative medicine too.

Here is a proof of above claims as published in a local news paper “The Hindu”, Chennai India recently:

Six-year-old girl Radhika born to a fisherman in Kerala was admitted in an unconscious state to the intensive care unit of a hospital on May 30, 2010 after suffering from a comatic brain injury caused by an accidental tightening of her neck by a shawl she was playing with. Radhika lost sensation and memory, suffered from respiratory problems and was in need of ventilator support. Doctors lost hope on her survival as only medicine and intravenous fluids kept her alive, but she was in coma.

After trying every mode of treatment Doctors resorted to music therapy and searched Google and Yahoo extensively the suitable therapy and fed her with low, soft, instrumental and Carnatic music.

Listening to music over an earphone, Radhika began responding slowly – first by opening her eyes, then being attentive to music, smiling in between, and then responding to her name. After Radhika took her first step out of bed after two months, Doctors are happy and are planning to discharge her only when she is able to walk entirely on her own.
