Ashley and I have chosen to help support my local children’s hospital, Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. As a community-owned, not-for-profit hospital, Orlando Health Arnold Palmer heavily relies on donations to keep their facilities updated and running. Through “The Metal and Honey Foundation”, I will be selling a customized ticket for $25, and each ticket sale automatically enters you in a chance-to-win my signature Matthew K Heafy Gibson Les Paul Custom guitar. 100% of the proceeds from the tickets will directly benefit Orlando Health Arnold Palmer’s Music Therapy program, which teaches children about music, and allows them to express themselves in a musically creative and supportive environment. With your help, we can help give every child the gift of music.
What Is Music Therapy?
Music Therapy is a health care service, that consists of using music therapeutically to address physical, psychological, cognitive and/or social functioning for patients of all ages.
Because music therapy is a powerful and non-invasive medium, unique outcomes are possible. In addition to its applications with hospital patients, music therapy is used successfully with persons of all ages and disabilities.
How Does Music Therapy Make A Difference For Medical Patients?
Music therapy has been shown to be an effective treatment option for medical patients with a variety of diagnoses and is used for patient needs related to respiration, chronic pain, physical rehabilitation, diabetes, headaches, cardiac conditions, and surgery, among others.
Research results and clinical experiences attest to the viability of music therapy even in those patients resistant to other treatment approaches.
Music is a form of sensory stimulation, which provokes responses due to the familiarity, predictability, and feelings of security associated with it.
Music Therapy at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children
Orlando Health Arnold Palmer has a number of Music Therapists, who work 24/7 to help the children and families during their stay in the hospital.
Orlando Health Arnold Palmer saw over 135,000 patients last year, and many of those patients were referred to a Music Therapist.
Music Therapists play a vital role in healing and free expression, and they have seen improvements in:
Music Therapy is a non-billable service, and all of the various guitars, keyboards, drums, recording devices, and music educational material is fully funded by donations from our community.
100% of the proceeds from each ticket sold through The Metal and Honey Foundation will directly support the Music
Therapy program at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer and continue to spread the healing gift of music to ill children.
