Music psychotherapy in medicine addresses physical symptoms in a holistic way thatinvolves integration of the body, mind and spirit. Orchestrating a treatment plan whereall team members are considered essential, in a growing community contextleads to growth and possibility. In music therapy we can customize care, particularly when a patient-centered culture is provided by research inclusion,music environmental play and caring for the caregiver music options. Music in medical communities enhances treatment possibilities while strengthening or softening with transparency, experiences that will unite the patient,family and community's capacity to heal and integrate care.
