I slowly am regaining reality, and from being a person who has always loved and played music, when I first got DP/DR, I did not even listen to music. But now, that "feeling" when you hear music which resonates with ones soul, is slowly coming back, and I find myself listening to music more often now. Soon I will get back to playing the guitar and keyboard.

Maybe, an expert can look at music therapy as part of a holistic healing process for us DP/DR'd, to bring ones emotions back, or bring us back from the dissociative feeling...???

It is well documented that music therapy is used to affect different parts of the brain. It is also associated with a decrease in depression, improved mood, and a reduction in state anxiety. See http://en.wikipedia....i/Music_therapy

So music is definitely a healer!

Yeah, I've noticed this.

After getting a bunch of music from a friend (and, of course, listening to it) I've noticed a drop in my DP symptoms.

But the thing with my DP was that music could always bring back emotions. My emotions were never fully dampened, I think, and only partially, so this might explain that.

I've had DP since I was six. The only thing that I can feel most relazed and in a world of my own other than DP is with music. The best band and my favorite band that helps me with my DP is Animal Collective. It's just as weird as having DP and that's why it's so beautiful!

Music is the only thing that reconnects me to reality.
Pity, I couldn't do continue with it as a career because of everything that happened in the past.
But yeah, Music is good for the soul.

I listen to a lot of classical, hip-hop and reggae. Some goth and dark metal.
I play the piano, some guitar and some drums (playing bongos is apparently good therapy).

Wow, this thread got a lot bigger then I had anticipated!

Personally, the stuff that helps my DP is Franz Ferdinand, some My Chemical Romance, and the Ting Tings. Also a lot more, but it would take too long to list them all. But I think that the two senses that have the strongest effect on DP or DR are sound (music) and smell. Like, does anyone ever catch some smell which is so strong it almost cuts through the DP, and brings you back to an older time?
