Synopsis by Alice Day
While the scientific reasons are not well understood, medical personnel have found that utilization of the arts has been of great benefit to patients. These uses can vary from dance to painting to music, and the patient age groups range from premature babies to the elderly. Doctor Is In: Healing Arts offers several examples of people who have improved following exposure to art and music therapy, and features a visit with Dr. Patch Adams, who uses humor to help his patients cope with their illnesses. Stroke victims, chronic pain sufferers, and those with mental illness have seen results with this form of healing.
