Tanesha’s Philosophy of Medicine
Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.” ~ Plato
Who said that being in therapy can’t be fun?!! Tanesha believes that our health is a co-creative experience, and that we are all on this Earth to uplift each other, love each other, and heal each other. She recognizes that our thoughts and emotions need a conduit, and knows that music can be a powerful tool, especially when words fail. Plus, music is not only a master emotional container, but can actually create new neural pathways around damaged areas in the brain! The best part is, no previous music experience is needed, just bring your beautiful self.
Tanesha uses neurologic music techniques to implement guided relaxation, lyric analysis, instrumental play, songwriting, and more, encouraging strengths as well as addressing needs in the areas of cognition, sensorimotor, and speech and language function.
Some benefits of applying music as therapy include:
- Develop coping skills
- Process thoughts and emotions
- Strengthen memory and cognitive function
- Improve dexterity and coordination
- Reduce stress
- Improving speech and language skills
- For just having fun!
Music therapy is effective alone, or when used in interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary settings, supporting disciplines like speech, physical, occupational therapy, and the wonderful work of doctors and other therapists. This Rockologist🎶 is eager to explore how you can work together to co-create fun, holistic, and effective music therapy experiences together!
