Music Therapy and the Emotion of Music
Humans perceive sounds and vibrations differently.
Is there music suitable for each person?
It depends on the mood, because it is easily associated with a genre or song.
Dozens of studies have confirmed that music has positive or negative effects on mental health.
Music therapy, much in vogue these days, makes use of sounds, pieces of music and rhythmic structures to help patients to calm down and control their impulses.
To use music in a positive way we must identify our mood: Cheerful, sad, nostalgic, desperate, euphoric, among others.
If the lyrics of a song are related to this feeling, the person may be more receptive and sensitive to the message.
Clinical psychologist Ruth Juracán Rosales explains that listening to joyful music produces greater “happiness” because of the rhythm and vibrations of the melody.
This can be varied by external factors such as the environment.
When someone is depressed, because of a lack of love, for example, songs that help to lift the mood and maintain the emotional balance are recommended, says the professional.
