In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk to Hailey Reiss about using music therapy for your health. Some people think of music as something for the talented or just something to listen to while travelling in the car, but playing and listening to music may have a bigger effect on your overall health than you think. Music therapy is gaining traction not just for the elderly or people with disabilities, but for young folks of all ages looking to do what they can to better their quality of life. Hailey talks to us about how athletes can use music to their advantage while exercising or dealing with injury. Whether you’re looking to incorporate music into your life to help with your mental health, meditation or fitness routines, you’ll get inspired in this episode.

Hailey Reiss is the owner of Harmonic Expressions a music therapy company. Hailey completed her Bachelors of Music Therapy at the University of Windsor in 2012. In March 2013 she received her Music Therapist Accredited designation from the Canadian Association for Music Therapy. Since then she has worked with numerous populations in different settings including seniors, adults with disabilities, children with disabilities, infants and children in daycares, child-parent anger management and emotions groups, as well as bereavement.
