The study focused on 200 patients with various types of cancer, AIDS, neurodegenerative diseases or other "life-limiting"Â conditions. The average age of the patients in the study was slightly over sixty but ranged from twenty-four to eighty-seven. Physical and psychological tests were conducted both before and after an initial therapy session. The tests showed a marked improvement in patient anxiety, pain and shortness of breath after the therapy. More importantly, 80% of the patients said that their mood had improved after the therapy. They felt better.
Listening to...music [you don't like] does not improve mood.
