Musical Therapy at Mater Cancer Care Centre Springfield

Mater Foundation will use funds raised through Dry July this year to purchase musical instruments with the intention of starting a music therapy program at MCCC Springfield.

For many people, listening to or making music is an absolute pleasure, and very often with cancer patients this is the only form of entertainment that they will be able to participate in during their treatment. Music therapy may accompany medical treatment to promote wellness, manage stress, alleviate pain, enhance memory, and help patients communicate and express feelings, and even promote physical rehabilitation. Studies have shown that making or listening to music can even lower blood pressure and heart and breathing rates, and in deed lessen the anxiety.
