This chapter examines the benefits of dance and music therapy in the palliative care setting. It explains that dance offers the human body the opportunity to become lost, to lose one's boundaries, and to experience a sacred art; while dance allows people at the end of life the chance to let go and release the natural flow of energies inside of him- or herself. The chapter also describes the healing properties of music and the spiritual comforts of sound.

Keywords:   dance therapy, music therapy, palliative care, sacred art, energies, spiritual comforts, sound
