About Music Therapy
All proceeds from this year’s Glennon Golf Classic will benefit Music Therapy at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. When used in a pediatric hospital setting, music therapy has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety, alleviate pain, promote relaxation and increase self-esteem. Our full-time board certified music therapist uses evidence-based interventions, bringing the joy and healing power of music to patients of all ages dealing with a variety of medial challenges, including kidney dialysis, bone marrow transplants, eating disorders, traumatic injuries and other complex issues. Many of the children she treats come away from their sessions calmer, in better spirits and filled with hope, sometimes for the first time since their diagnosis or injury. In addition, music therapy helps children better cope with their illness and treatment, as well as enables their parents to bond with them in a unique way.
