The Old Testament also tells of a story of King David curing illnesses through his mastery of playing the harp. If that was not music therapy then what is? Physicians in ancient Egypt also used music to reduce the pain of childbirth. Indian legends also mention Thyagaraja, a famous and expert south Indian musician whose is said to have sung the dead back to life.
