According to the study, “children of preschool age can learn to talk about the various holistic health practices, such as stretching, relaxing, and meditating as one way to develop increased language skills.”
The study also showed how music therapy, which is a holistic health practice in itself, has a relaxing and calming influence and enhanced soothing environments. The data even showed that music therapy had a profoundly positive impact when it came to teaching toddlers math.
