This Clarity Way infographic dives into answering the question: "What is music therapy?" This mode of therapy has actually been around for centuries and it can be traced back to Hippocrates in 400 B.C., who used music to treat mental disorders.

There are several types of music therapy suited to a range of patients, including ones that will have people compose, listen or recreate sounds. Music therapy addresses physical, cognitive and emotional needs, and it can be used to treat symptoms of addiction, depression, stress, PTSD and even cancer. When it comes to picking a mix, a lot of it comes from personal preference or what might be best for uplifting or mellowing a patient out. As noted in the infographic, listening to music makes the brain release dopamine, which has a drug-like effect, without being harmful.
