Music therapy

In music therapy, the different components of music (sound, rhythm, melody, dynamics, form) are used to communicate and express emotions, atmospheres, needs, conflicts and blocks. Music activates self-healing powers, addresses resources, and can trigger transforming processes. The vibrations of specific instruments can stimulate and/or relax cells of the body.

Free and scenic improvisation (instrumental, vocal), receptive music therapy, imagination, sound journeys and sound worlds: music awakens emotions, can express them, and facilitates creativity. As a psychodynamically-oriented treatment procedure, music therapy is specifically used to promote, preserve and restore health.

Our therapy offer is mainly available to inpatients. If we have available capacity, we also offer outpatient therapies.
