Integrative Music Therapy is unique in that it utilizes a neurologic music therapy approach with specialized training to look deeper into the cause of our clients' challenges while using best practice approaches to meet their therapeutic goals.
Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) is an advanced form of music therapy utilizing research-based techniques to treat the brain using music and rhythm. Research has shown music and rhythm affect multiple areas of the human brain at once on a subconscious level, allowing functional skills and pathways in the brain to be connected for better cognitive skills, communication, and coordinated motor movements. With NMT, an individual is assessed and areas of improvement are identified, translating needs or behaviors into "musical behaviors" for therapeutic outcomes.
Populations served by Neurologic Music Therapists include, but are not limited to: stroke, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson's and Huntington's disease, cerebral palsy, Alzheimer's disease, developmental disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, and other neurological diseases affecting cognition, movement, and communication (e.g., MS, Muscular Dystrophy, Angelman Syndrome, Joubert, etc).
