How Music Therapy Helps Us Relax
Have you ever heard the expression: “Music tames the wild beast”? Music Therapy has been used for centuries to induce a state of relaxation or happiness. It has become a very popular method of stress management. Music is an excellent aid to help you get in the “zone” when performing Yoga, Self-Hypnosis and Guided Imagery. You can select the sounds that will help you feel energized when exercising, or relieve some stress while you are soaking in the bathtub. Music is an enhancing addition to any form of therapy.
Music Therapy is a method of therapy that has shown steady growth. Research has proven that music affects brain waves, and can stimulate them to become in sync with the beat. Faster beats bringing heightened concentration, and slower beats bringing a calm, meditative state. Interestingly, research has also shown that the benefits are long lasting. Listening to music teaches the brain to change brainwave patterns with less effort, when called upon to do so, without any music.
Music and Music Therapy can be useful in producing a more positive state of mind, and acting as an aid to fight against the damaging effects of chronic stress, promoting relaxation, and improving overall health. Stress is a killer, and must be brought under control.
Stress will affect your heart rate, breathing rate, perspiration, hunger and digestion. It even affects release of hormones.
