Sound Healing: Ease Chronic Pain: Music - Imagery - Book - Journal
Stewart, Tabori and Chang, Oct 25, 2005 - Health & Fitness - 95 pages
The profound effect music can have over a person's ability to heal was first noted after World War I when doctors at veterans hospitals noticed that soldiers who were entertained by visiting musicians recovered faster from their wounds. Mainstream medicine didn't give it much credence at the time but alternative healers, aware that music as medicine can be traced back to ancient Greence, embraced it. There is now scientific proof that music positively influences biological responses such as heart rate, blood pressure, respiration, muscle tone, skin irritations and the immune system. Scientists have observed brain wave changes in patients being treated with music therapy, with the release of certain neurotransmitters that help speed healing. Certain tones and certain frequencies resonate to certain parts of the body and help elicit a healing effect. Guided imagery is another newly accepted healing art that guides people through a meditative state in which the mind is influenced to help pain or an illness escape the body.Sounds of Healing is a unique series that combines healing music and guided imagery on CD and practical how-to information and guidance in text format by two professionals who have been involved in these remarkable two sciences for more than a dozen years.
