Yes, there is an active association in Music Therapy, and about 5000 of us working in the US as Registered Music Therapists. The association was formed in 1950. I have been a Music Therapist for four years now, and I'm currently working on my psychology doctorate. Music is powerful stuff, and the post above that speaks about contraindications of its use is right on target. Many people can use music to enhance, deepen, and clarify experience... but sometimes it is important to have specific training in order to use it effectively and to "do no harm". I would love to converse with anyone interested in the topic of Music Therapy. Please email me at: email@example.com with any questions. Also, if you need to locate a music therapist in your area for consultation or services, NAMT will give you the number of the closest music therapist to you. I also have this information, which I will share via e-mail.
