A free light meal will be served following the program. All are invited to come attend Christina Wood’s program on the intentional use of music and its many benefits for our loved ones with dementia as well as for their caregivers.

The program will involve both live performance and a discussion on how to use music techniques. This will be a lively entertaining program.

Christina Wood, Owner of Healing Rhythms Music Therapy, LLC in Rochester, Minn. is an experienced certified music therapist who works with people in many settings.

She enjoys educating people about the benefits of music therapy for patients. Healing Rhythms Music Therapy currently contracts with hospitals, hospices, skilled nursing facilities, memory care centers, group homes, and a variety of private clients in the Southeast Minn. area.

What is music therapy? Music therapy is an allied healthcare profession which uses music to achieve (non-musical) goals. Music Therapy helps folks optimize cognitive (memory-recall) abilities, provides spiritual and psychosocial support for people at end of life, teaches relaxation skills utilizing music to manage stress/anxiety/pain, and encourages functional rehabilitation. Healing Rhythms Music Therapy, LLC is a private practice that offers individualized and group music therapy services throughout southeastern Minn. Healing Rhythms is a team of five board-certified music therapists that are highly trained and educated in how to utilize music to support individuals of all ages and abilities. They particularly focus on working with people with dementia and memory loss. Music therapy is so much more than entertainment; Presenter Christina Woods is an expert in utilizing music to help others.

Why does it matter? Neuroscience and music therapy research has proven the clinical benefits of using music in a variety of settings to support those with dementia and memory loss. Music activates many parts of the brain and when used intentionally, can provide great benefits. Music therapists are the experts in the field to provide therapeutic services and also educate communities and individuals about how to best use music intentionally with loved ones.
