By Alana Woods

An informative collective sampling of music and music instruments recommended for self healing, and how they can be used. The author was inspired while meditating in ancient temple grounds in Greece with the information that historically, Paracelsus gave music prescriptions to his patients for both physical and mental disorders. This, plus memories of how the author naturally healed herself over and over by playing her piano when she was a child. Included is a chart showing six hands-on healing techniques or healing systems using music, brain responses to music, and affects on the human body.
