We use Gamelan music ( to treat spastic children in The Spastic Children school by staff of the Dept of Neurosciences ,Hospital University Sains Malaysia with Professor Ghouse a musician (

I remember reading Herman Helholtz's On the Sensations of Tone many years ago. He had some incredibly interesting (19th century) ideas!

I just spent two days at the Louis Armstrong Music Therapy Program. The staff there are very talented. I found alot of cool techniques to use with my patients in the brain gym. I can't wait to go back in December.
