|About||NMTST serves individuals with neurologic impairments. Through musical intervention, our music therapists promotes neurorehabilitation to achieve non-musical goals, such as speech, physical movement, cognition and other conditions of the nervous system.|
Who believes you can relearn how to walk using music? How about, relearning how to speak through lyrics or familiar songs?
Neurologic Music Therapy uses the nuisances of music to promote and influence neuroplasticity, so really, we’re changing, or rewiring the brain. It is a scientific-based model using musical interventions to achieve goals in the cognitive, sensory, and motor domains for those experiencing a neurologic disease of the human nervous system.
Many people can benefit from NMT, specifically, individuals experiencing, acquired brain injuries, traumatic brain injuries, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, autism spectrum disorder, Huntington's disease, Alzheimer's disease, and many more. It is a research-based system that employs standardized clinical techniques in areas of sensorimotor training, speech and language training, and cognitive training.
Sensorimotor training: These techniques are useful for individuals with motor issues related to neurological disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease, cerebral palsy, Huntington's disease, and hemiparesis or spasticity due to acquired brain injury. Using rhythmic-based activities, NMT is used to facilitate and improve an individual’s range of motion, joint mobility/agility/strength, balance, coordination, gait consistency or walking, and relaxation.
Speech and language training: These techniques are useful for individuals who have limited speech or have loss speech due to degenerative diseases or acquired brain injuries, such as aphasia or developmental delays. These techniques are also useful to improve respiratory function for those who’s breathing may be compromised. It incorporates a lot of singing. Singing is a therapeutic tool that assists in the development of articulation, rhythm, and breath control, and improve oxygen saturation rates.
Cognitive training: These techniques are useful for individuals who may have responsive behaviours due to an acquired brain injury, development
