Origin of the therapy
The origin of this therapy dates back to the very ancient times, but at that time it was considered more of a part of social science and not medical science.

Acceptance of the therapy and its benefits
Brain injury was almost incurable before the last decade. A lot of research and convincing results have restored faith in this process. It has been observed that there are areas in the brain, which are sensitive to music. These areas also respond while processing language and help in memory, attention, motor and execution control. They play a major role in auditory perception. Music proficiently activates and helps in accessing these systems. It involves and establishes interactions in the brain through complex patterns. Through these activations in the brain help in reviving people from the shock and also helps in bringing back the nerves which had gone out of action.
There is a region in the brain known as the Broca, which is responsible for tracking musical rhythms as well as sequencing various physical movements of the body. It is an extremely important region as it is required to convert our thoughts into spoken words. This sequencing and conversion of thought to speech is reinstated into the brain though the process of music therapy.
Greater knowledge about the therapy needs to be propagated among people to increase awareness about the process. It is blindsided by many doctors too. But there is enough evidence for one to trust in the therapy. Progressive and adapting doctors are encouraging this process because it affects the right areas of the brain and revives a person from brain injury.
