"Music is said to have healing powers"

Check out Sunday's Parade magazine -- there is an article about musicians and artists at work in New York City in exchange for health care benefits.  The article by Rebecca Webber says, "Music is said to have healing powers," and the musicians "entertain, inspire and comfort people during stressful hospital visits."  Musicians also provide relaxation through breathing exercises or playing soothing music.  As a result, patients look forward to coming for treatment rather than dreading it.
