Summary Bio-Guided Music Therapy explores the clinical integration of music and biofeedback, providing the practitioner with a rationale, historical context and detailed step-by-step instructions for implementing real-time physiological data driven music therapy. This practical guide introduces the fundamental principles of biofeedback and explores the use of music therapy interventions within the context of achieving skills in self-regulation of physiological response. The book looks at the primary modalities of biofeedback, in conjunction with the assignment of digitally sampled musical voices to specific body functions. Music therapy interventions covered include guided imagery to music, toning, mantra meditation, drumming and improvisation. This book clearly demonstrates how these techniques can be successfully applied to the treatment of stress, high blood pressure, back pain, insomnia, migraine, neuromuscular deficiencies and depression, as well as being an effective therapy for clients with autism spectrum disorders and attention deficit disorder. Instructive and accessible, this book will prove an essential resource for students and practitioners of music therapy, biofeedback practitioners, social workers, psychologists and healing arts professionals.
