Well-Tuned™: Music Players for Health for Individuals, Friends and Family Members

The Institute for Music and Neurologic Function (IMNF) has developed its Well-Tuned™: Music Players for Health program to bring the benefits of music to individuals in need of therapeutic music and their friends and families, across the country.

Researchers have discovered that music has a stimulating effect on the human brain and can be used to improve certain neurological conditions. The IMNF, a leader in personalizing music for therapeutic benefit, is bringing its music therapy expertise to families everywhere. The Well-Tuned™ program offers people with conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, Parkinson’s disease, depression or anxiety assistance with connecting to the music they love, to improve their overall health and well-being. Abundant research shows that by reconnecting patients with their favorite music, the result is often reduced depression and anxiety as well as a better mood. This is especially helpful for people with dementia as a way to reduce agitation and increased cooperation and attention.

Based on more than 30 years of studying the effects of music on the human condition, the IMNF has developed a series of programs to bring therapeutic music to you or your loved one through an MP3 player/iPod music player. The IMNF will work with you or your loved one to develop a list of favorite songs that will be loaded onto an MP3 player/iPod that you send us.
