Music makes us dance, lightens our mood, and even heals our souls. Music Therapy is a powerful tool, and Hospice of Michigan uses this method to help children and adults coping with grief.

Music has a universal power to affect emotions. Hospice of Michigan says the right kind of music can enhance relaxation to ease pain and anxiety. Research has shown the effectiveness of music therapy even in patients resistant to other treatment approaches. Hospice of Michigan's music therapist engages patients with music in ways best suited for their needs and preferences.
