Listening to Healing Force Music
Calming music - healing music for your soul, your body, and your mind.
Music composed for everyday people like you and me - calming music for healing, relaxation, stress relief, meditation, yoga, study time, and more.
How can Sound and Music be such powerful tools?
Sound enters the healing functions of the body via several paths:
It can provide energizing effects at the main cellular level.
It can influence and indirectly help regulate the immune system, since music affects emotions which influence neurotransmitters, the chemicals that allow impulses to travel throughout the body. Which, in turn, can heal our bodies from within.
It can produce a strong calming effect on the mind and body, and be a powerful stress reliever.
Healing music focuses on the ability of harmonics to create vibrations that can change our body, our mind, and our emotional state. Those changes and sounds can initiate transformation, which initiates healing!
What I have created with my music may allow you to enter into what is
the most personal and sacred place we may ever know.
With this music, we can journey deep into our own inner resources
to retrieve information, energy, renewed vitality, balance, clarity,
inspiration, relaxation, creativity, free expression, and possibly...transformation.
Studies show that music aids healing in various ways
Numerous studies have demonstrated the health benefits of music: it can lower blood pressure and heart and respiratory rates; reduce cardiac complications; increase the immune response; and boost our natural opiates.
Sound vibration directly aligns all energy fields and it's been shown that music is one of the most powerful and potent vehicles to bring about this alignment. What is known is that a number of regions in the brain are activated by listening to music.
One recent scientific paper out of Harvard showed music therapy helped stroke patients regain speech. And other studies found music helps to improve heart and respiratory rates and blood pressure, as well as anxiety and pain in cancer and leukemia patients. Scientists say the brain responds to music by creating new pathways around damaged areas.
When the right music is integrated as part of a mind-body-spirit approach to wellness, it can play a significant part in maintaining a healthy lifestyle or in healing serious disease.
Today there are many science-backed health benefits of music
A few of the health benefits that music can give all of us are:
• Reduce stress - music can release biochemical stress reducers.
• Elevate mood - studies have shown that music can put one in a better state of mind and can raise self-awareness.
• Reduce anxiety - music's effect on anxiety levels were as similar as getting a massage.
• Ease pain - music can help reduce the intensity of perceived pain, especially in geriatric care and intensive care.
• Improve sleep quality - calming music has been shown to be an effective treatment for insomnia, while also making it an alternative to sleep aid medications.
• Enhance blood vessel function - scientists found that music has a healthy effect on blood flow and vessel function, and makes people feel happier.
• Positively impact mood - music while driving, flying, working can elevate your mood helping you to feel less cranky.
• Relieve symptoms of depression - when you are feeling down, slow meditative music can pick you up.
• Relax patients before surgery - music can help put surgery patients at ease as they await their operations. These techniques have been used in hospitals across Europe for years.
• Ease stress after surgery - studies show that music after surgery helps with relaxation, as well as easing stress levels while decreasing perceived pain levels.
Music has been referred to as a universal language.
