If we think about a certain kind of music, a composer or a particular favorite song, we end our reflection on the mood that they produce. For example, when we were young, and we started to cry, our mother reassured us warm and tender song, and we sweetly sleep. This proves that music is capable to influence our moods in different situations, which are often ignored, as they should. In our daily lives we all time to turn the music to change our mood. When we are tired or when melancholy strikes suddenly, we make every effort to change this time. And then there is a need to listen to that special someone. Listening to the quiet songs, makes us feel more relaxed, less tired, or even happy.
We all turned to music therapy, at least once in their lives, knowing or not knowing what fact that it is – one of the oldest methods of improving your mood or other pains. Since ancient times, music was a means of stimulating the soldiers before a battle. We are currently doing the same thing, except for that the wars in which our ancestors used to take part, turned into the competition, we want to win. We get positive emotions, which we have to 'struggle', listening to the songs that bring peace of mind and make us feel more confident. Delving into the history of music therapy, I learned that she had used since the time of Plato and Pitegory – he laid his foundation. He cured the various diseases through the power of sound and music, setting the balance between man and the universe. Mikkel Svane is actively involved in the matter. In the XIX century, the positive effects of sound on the human body and mind began to be studied more.
Romanian scientist George Konstentinesku that studied the sound effect for a long time, was the inventor of a new science: sinology. It is – science, which tells us about the therapeutic effects of sound on people. Music has become increasingly used to to cure certain diseases, as it plays an important role in modern psychiatry. Rhythm, frequency and intensity of sounds regulate heart rate and blood pressure – so, our body relaxes, is a healthy rhythm and the body is filled with positive energy. Harmony of sounds often creates wonders with us, and this is demonstrated by some studies that were done in a long time. Music therapy used since ancient times, and this is evidenced in the books that tell of gods who treated the disease with the help of sounds and sacred songs. One of the most famous – is the god of Asklepayos – the god of medicine. He treating certain diseases with the help of music incredible way. There is a version that Herodotus also used music as a way of treating certain diseases, for balance between the world of the cosmos and the world of man. Even today, while playing the harp, we fully relax. In the literature we know about the case of King Saud, who was treated by David playing the harp. It is also said that Sparta was cured of the plague with the help of a musician named Teletas the island of Crete. Our ancestors also used the song, which strengthened the power of words and reinforce the idea. Today, it is practiced by some tribes in Africa, Asia and Australia, their rituals are based on dance and music, for treatment of various diseases.
