Music aid

Portugal’s music therapy association is hoping to make this type of therapy a recognised profession in the country as well as raising awareness about this method of treatment.

Founded in 1996, the association promotes music therapy, which is the use of music, sound, rhythms and melody in a systematic process to help in the restoration of the patient’s psychological functions.
