Ayurved, Samved, and Gandharvaved have special importance in ancient Vedic wisdom. Indian classical music is a great example of devotion, discipline, and spirituality meant to purify our mind, body, and consciousness.
Rag chikitsa (therapy based on Indian classical ragas) is a well-known form of music therapy. Music therapy based only on Indian classical ragas is not enough to attain mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. Music therapy based on ancient ayurvedic principles with an individualized approach catering to the ailments of the body helps in attaining a balanced state of physiology.
Music therapy as the science of Indian classical music and ancient ayurvedic principles has an added benefit to ayurvedic panchakarma treatments which focuses on mind-body and consciousness.
