A Painless Prescription: Music as a Healing Power

If it were possible to even begin imagining what it would be like to have cancer, now imagine that your only viable treatment is chemotherapy, which gives you, sometimes crippling, anxiety and severe nausea that often leads to vomiting. Imagine this happens every time you go for treatment, sometimes before you even get to the room. Having cancer is hard enough, so if there was a positive, drug-free way to treat the anxiety and vomiting that comes with cancer treatment, why wouldn’t we want to try it? Music therapy is the answer. It has shown to be significantly effective in individuals undergoing chemotherapy, so why not implement it in more hospitals?
