Music Therapy as The Key to Your Relaxation

Since old times there have been a lot of different therapistic practices including popular Massage therapy, Osteopathy, Physiotherapy, Naturotherapy and others. They all positive impact on your body and soul? and sometimes you can become so relaxed that you may even fall asleep. Some other kinds of therapy requires your full attention rather that sleepy mood. That is why the choice of certain music during such sessions is very important.

Scientists have been studying the impact of music on humans mind and body for many years now. The book “The Power of Sound: How to Be Healthy and Productive Using Music and Sound” N. M. Weinberger is a greate source of special knowledges on the related topic. Mr Weinberger belives that music is the key tool to set a particular mood. Article in the Journal of Advenced Nursing arguments that people with chronic pains are likely to feel less pain while listening to relaxing music for an hour a day or so. 

Article “The Effect of Music on the Human Stress Response”in the PLOS ONE suggests that people can actually lower their stress level by listening to pleasant music. Cortisol is a hormon that is responsible for the stress level in our body. If the level of cortisol increases you are likely to have a burst of energy. Whereas if the level of cortisol is low you wil feel yourself relaxed and calm. 

The paper “Music can facilitate blood pressure recovery from stress” says that listening to classical music may help you recover quickly and full from the recent stress situation. 

After going through all of these studies, we can see that choosing right background music is the key to your patients’ experience. But it’s not good only for your clients but also creates a strong atmosphere for your workplace.

Imaging if you were using no music during the sessions and a sudden sound of cars driving or people arguing outside of the building, all of these factors can easily destroy the right atmosphere both for your patient and for you. Clients would not be able to relax fully, whereas you would not be able to concentrate properly.

A special atmosphere in the room is the key to the succesfull session. In the paper “Cardiovascular, cerebrovascular, and respiratory changes induced by different types of music in musicians and non-musicians: the importance of silence”, results show that slow, calming rhythms can have a relaxing effect on the mind and body. According to the study when a patient listents to the fast music it also fastents his/her heart rhythm and breathing, whereas when calm music is on, it slows down patient’s heart and breathing. Howevver, the style of music did not matter at all, it was mainly the tempo and rhythm of the music that had changed patients’ mood so quickly. 

A great way to make your patient breath the way you want is to find a music with the particulat tempo. Your client is going to match his breathing accordingly. Avoid sudden changes in the music tempo. Fast music can increase your clients’ adrenalin level. However, if you need your patient to be awake and feel full experience turn on some relaxing background music which will make them calm but keep them awake. 

Another important thing is the continuation of your music. Relaxing atmophere can be interrupted easily if your homemade playlist will suddenly pause or shuffle. So keep in mind that non-stopable music will help you and your client both relax and concentrate on the therapy session. Radio station is also not an option when a sudden commercial pop-up will ruin the atmophere.

In a nutshell, all these studies have a great points which should be consudered during your thepary sessions. Firstly, slow music is the key tool to lower your client’s blood pressure and cortisol level. Thankfully to that patients’ stress level will fall down.
