Music Medicine services available for YOU at Healing Music Enterprises
Music Healing and Music Medicine services are probably one of the best-kept secrets in Louisville, KY. But did you know that many of these services are also available by phone or through SKYPE online? What are they? You probably know about the power of music with preemies and newborns, labor and delivery, surgery, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's patients. I also work with quite a few patients who suffer from anxiety, depression and panic attacks and music is a powerful intervention.
The field of music therapy offers hundreds if not thousands of studies on the use of music with a wider variety of illnesses and disabilities but I believe that the general public is still not aware of these documented findings about the benefits of music. Although I am not officially a music therapist, I am a Ph.D. level musicologist, a licensed clinical social worker and a lifelong teacher and performer. The field of music therapy was not available when I went to college back in the 70's so I've had to create my own path. One advantage of that is that I have the ability to accept your health insurance when I provide services that treat many of the above-mentioned conditions.
If you are interested in treatment for any of the above health conditions, please give me a call at 502-419-1698 and we discuss what the options might be! If you're interested in taking a class on a the use of music with health conditions, I'll be offering those this semester too, some geared for the patient and family and some geared for other health practitioners such as social workers, chiropractors, massage therapists and others. Again, contact me at the same number if you are interested.
Fascinating music study conducted in Kentucky!
Have you ever had a family member that had to be in bed for an extended period?
If so, you know that pressure points form on that person's body where they lie in bed in the same position for too long. A fascinating study was conducted here that showed how using music over a speaker system in a nursing home setting, provided the prompting that the caregivers needed to remind them that patients needed to be repositioned.
To see the study as it was presented on my blog, click HERE.
Please share this ezine with your friends and family and let's get the word out that music is powerful and healing!
Dr. Cash will come and speak for YOUR association, conference, university or church
Speaking is something that I love to do because for me, speaking is a form of teaching that allows me to reach far more people than if I were still a college professor. Although I love being associated with colleges and universities, I also love the freedom of being able to fly anywhere in the country or the world to be a keynote speaker on "The Healing Power of Music." I have received invitations from as far as Hawaii, Spain, and Turkey and always try to fulfill these invitations and deliver more than I'm asked to deliver. I consider that the knowledge and experience I have acquired is something to be shared and experienced by as many other people as possible!
I am always happy to stay in private homes and come when the fares are affordable. I consider myself to be a sort of "music healing missionary" and love to travel to far-away or remote places as well as the major cities and highways and by-ways of life! I can tailor my talk to your group's specific needs and requirements and will offer the most reasonable fee that I possibly can. Please don't assume that your group can't afford me. I will work with you to make it happen. Just visit www.HealingMusicEnterprises.com/speaker.html and then let's talk!
See you next month!!
About Alice Cash
For nearly two decades, I've been helping people use the music that they already love to heal their lives and increase their wellness quotient! I am one of the world's only clinical musicologists and hold Bachelors and Masters degrees in piano performance, a Ph.D. in musicology and a Master of Social Work in clinical social work. I am also a licensed clinical social worker. I work with people and diagnoses of all kinds, enabling them to find healing, acceptance and hope.
Many people assume that I am a music therapist but I am not. I was trained originally as a concert pianist, then as a musicologist, then as a clinical social worker. I love performing, researching, and teaching and have put them all together in a career called "Music Medicine." However, the field of music therapy is much better known and has degree programs and credentialing that is very valuable and important.
To hear me speak, and watch me in action "is to have a day that will amaze, educate, motivate, and inspire you!" (Joanna Driver, meeting planner in England) To hire me as a keynote speaker for your association or organization click here.
