From Hippocrates to Neuroscience

Art in the form of theatre and music were prescribed together with sports, diet and herbs as part of a toolbox of medical remedies and interventions in ancient Greece.

Fast forward couple of thousand years and the belief stays firm. Evidence from 3,000 studies about the positive impact of arts in health was presented  by the World Health Organisation in 2019. Canada and UK's health systems prescribe free visits to museums as a way to help people suffering from post trauma, anxiety and stress. Dance, music and painting are among the most used art therapy techniques.

Modulation of neurotransmitters, such as serotonin (involved in mood, sleep, digestion, bone health) and cortisol (known as the  primary stress hormone), as well as decrease of inflammation, together with promotion of neurogenesis and new neural connections are among the first findings of the positive effects of culture in mental health and health overall (WHO, 2022).
