Neurologic Music Therapy
Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) is an advanced certification for music therapists. Based upon neuroscience research, Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) provides specific, individualized, and standardized treatment techniques for those affected by neurologic injury or disease. NMT techniques address:
- Sensorimotor Rehabilitation
- Speech and Language Rehabilitation
- Cognitive Rehabilitation
Research shows that rhythm and music affect multiple areas of the human brain at once on a subconscious level. Because of this, rhythm can be used to help build new connections in the brain (called neuropathways) thus improving a client's brain function.
What populations are appropriate for NMT?
Traumatic Brain Injury
