In this study, posture and relaxing exercises accompanied by live Turkish music were performed every week for three weeks on 43 head-ache patients who are treated at the algology department. The study has been planned as active and passive therapy. Active therapy includes posture and relaxing exercises with Turkish music, while passive therapy includes listening to Turkish music in a relaxed steady position. After the third therapy session, patients were asked questions regarding the therapy and exercises. Almost all of the patients stated that the exercises and the Turkish music had positive effects on relieving their pain, helped them think positively, helped them relax and feel tranquil and that the therapy with Turkish music should be more common
