Well-Tuned™: Music Players for Health Program

Researchers have discovered that music has a stimulating effect on the human brain and can be used to improve certain neurological disorders. The Institute for Music and Neurologic Function allows CenterLight Health System patients to receive the benefits of music through its renowned Well-Tuned™: Music Players for Health Program. Using an MP3 player/iPod, individuals can benefit from therapeutic music programs throughout their day.

The licensed music therapists and other specialists at the IMNF create customized playlists incorporating input from patients and loved ones. These playlists are loaded onto MP3 players/iPods so patients can connect with music they love, improving their overall health and well-being. Playlists can be created for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, Parkinson’s disease and depression or anxiety. Research demonstrates that patients who are connected with their favorite music are less agitated and have a better mood.
