As Music is Universal so is Music Therapy!
Music therapy as the term implies is the application of music as a complementary management technique for a variety of conditions affecting the human population. Predominantly developed in India, nevertheless this expression have only recently found a place in the society recently.
It was the Nada centre for music therapy, a modest organisation which started the propagation of the concepts and practices relating to music therapy amongst Indians, who have lost the 'music' in their life, despite the fact that the music industry being a flourishing in India.
Though unrecognised and unsung, the Indian Raga system, well known both for its emotional content and impact, had no doubt provided much -needed solace for billions of people in the past. East or West music is the best, the potential of Indian Raga's are yet to be mastered by a wider population for being propagated to a wider public. Like the Sanskrit language, the raga's are restricted to a few individuals who have been able to master this art through family traditions or extraordinary interests and devotion.
Nada Centre commenced research with popular western music so as to identify their possible therapeutic role for the concurrent needs of youth (and also elders who have a savvy for western music.
The centre recommends that individuals should first identify their problems and religiously listen to the recommended music for atleast 20 minutes thrice each day, ideally after breakfast, lunch and dinner
