Abstract

Objective: To conduct a systematic review on the efficacy of music as therapy. Method: 404 articles written in Portuguese were identified by selected metadata in the Scielo Brazil and Portugal System; of those, 35 publications with results that discuss the benefits for actions in these countries, indexed from 2005 to 2016, were selected. Results: Most of the studies were concentrated in the nursing field, with the articles originating in 15 professional disciplines. The main contributions and effects of music were: Reduction of symptoms of discomfort, positive feelings, facilitation of personal and interpersonal communication, increased sociability of individuals, reduction of physical and mental pain, beneficial changes in physiological patterns, and bodily stimulus. Conclusion: Music is a powerful transdisciplinary therapeutic resource for rehabilitation, and transcends models of health. It should not be denied to patients, their companions or even the team of health professionals caring for them.
