Music as Medicine.

Music can affect the body, mind, and spirit and has many health reasons to participate. Improving the quality of life that does not require prescriptions is a benefit. 
The risk-benefit ratio for music therapy is zero! We are all musically competent, we all can sing!

The ancient Greek physicians used flutes, lyres, and zithers to help heal their patients. Music and vibration were used to aid in digestion, treat mental disturbance, and induce sleep.

Music releases dopamine in the brain and serotonin to boost mood. Music engages and exercises many different parts of the brain in real-time and nothing else can do that.

Playing music with others, such as singing in a choir or strumming in a ukelele group leads to new friendships. Music can also turn down stress chemicals like cortisone, turn up feel-good chemicals like serotonin and benefit your immune system. 

Have you ever experienced a song that is world known like “Amazing Grace” with other languages singing it at the same time? Awesome!! Music can cross barriers and lift hearts!! Sing for your health!
Coming Soon for folks who live alone, and would like to be checked on, is a form to fill out called “Safe Seniors/Singles” and you will receive a text or phone call, your preference, once or twice a week, your preference, to be checked upon.
