A new study finds that music therapy helps cancer patients. A scientific review published in The Cochrane Reviews this past August showed that cancer patients who participated in some form of music therapy reported reduced anxiety and pain. The evidence from 30 studies involving nearly 2,000 participants showed that music interventions may improve patients’ anxiety, pain, mood, quality of life and vital signs. The studies evaluated music interventions as a complementary therapy used in conjunction with clinical treatments such as chemotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy.
