Under investigation were 25 men and women at the age of 50 – 70 years with a beginning arteriosclerotic encephalopathy.
The patients were treated with both relaxing and activating Medical Resonance Therapy Music®. There were 10 treatments in total, each treatment lasting from 10 to 30 minutes. Starting with a habituation phase of 10 minutes the treatment was expanded step by step up to 30 minutes. During the first three treatments relaxing MRT-Music® was given, in the following four treatments the patients received activating MRT-Music; during the last three treatments they received in the first 10 minutes relaxing and in the following 20 minutes activating MRT-Music®.
During the whole time of treatment with Medical Resonance Therapy Music® the patients did not receive any medication effecting the central nervous system.
Of the 25 patients 21 had headaches. Since the Medical Resonance Therapy Music® was part of a conventional treatment and there was no control group a result determinable in percentage was not possible. The treatment was successful: at the end 15 patients were free of headaches, 5 experienced a clear improvement and 1 patient did not get better. Looking to the protocols of the patients written before and after each MRT-Music® treatment, it becomes obvious that MRT-Music® had an essential share in this. Here an exemplary evaluation which documents the influence of the music.
