Message from the Founder

I once had a patient and their family describe music therapy as bringing them a miracle. “Music therapy is not a miracle, but a scientifically-driven therapy that offers spiritual and physical healing,” I answered. Music can connect to the brain and improve mental, cognitive (concentration, memory, intelligence, etc.), and physical function, as well as language, social, and communication capabilities. This ultimately leads to clear health improvements for the body, mind, and spirit.

Many people agree that life cannot be lived without music. Music therapists establish unique treatment directions and goals to accommodate varying musical preferences and participant needs. All of this is offered in a safe and comfortable environment.

To be clear, receiving music therapy does not require any musical knowledge and experience. There is no limit on age and ability – music therapy is for everyone. Participants of all ages and backgrounds can use music therapy to overcome difficulties in their lives.

We strictly adhere to professional ethics and keep our patients’ information fully confidential. IMTC is committed to the global movement and growth of music therapy and its benefits. We will update and upload relevant articles regularly.
