Music Integrative Neurotherapy™ is an applied Neuroscience therapy, an interdisciplinary method including Music (as a science), Medicine (Human Anatomy and Physiology, Neuropsychiatry, Neuropharmacology), Molecular Biology and a Quantum Mechanics model to design the therapy.
The method uses the Brain‐Mind‐Brain‐Organism system’s proprieties as the mechanics of feed‐forward and feedback of the information. The method is multimedia (Audio and Visual); the therapeutic material is presented in a virtual reality-like form (with interactive visual technology). The main principle of Music Integrative Neurotherapy is: “Rewiring the mind to rewire the brain and organism”.
Music Integrative Neurotherapy™ is not the usual “relaxing” music. It is not music made for entertainment and used incidentally as a therapy. It combines the rules of music science with the medical data of each patient, to create music related to the patient’s unique condition. A personalized therapy, based on the fact that each disturb has three main aspects: the general (for example: Anxiety Disorder), the specific (for example: Anxiety Disorder‐ General Anxiety Disorder (Panic Attack)), and a personal aspect (the way the disease acts in each patient according to her/his specific physiological and psychological data).
Music Integrative Neurotherapy™ is a complementary therapy, not an alternative therapy. It helps to reduce and eliminate the side effects of many medications; it helps to speed up the action of the drug, while reducing its side effects. It is applied in Psychiatry (Mood and Personality Disorders), Neurology (Sleep Disorders and rehabilitation post‐cerebral palsy), Dental Anesthesia and post‐stroke rehabilitation.
This study presents the applications and effects of the method in some psychiatric and neurological disturbs, the specific clinical assessment, the structure of the material and the results of the therapy.
