Good health has it’s own music.This music is unique to each person.
Research shows that listening to particular types of music changes the way we perceive and experience the world. Scientists in the Netherlands found that listening to a song like Bill Withers’ “Lovely Day” or Patty Griffen’s “Heavenly Day” primes us for positive experience.
Music matters to our health and wellbeing. Melodies enter our nervous system through the auditory brainstem and stimulates our cerebellum, releases dopamine (the feel good neurotransmitter) and improves our immune response.
Gift yourself with self-care time to make your personal playlists for priming your day, improving your sense of well-being, reducing stress, focusing attention and maintaining a positive outlook. Music is personal. When you find yourself exposed to sounds or tunes that are disturbing to you it is important to press the pause button before it causes a stress response.
Recordings of binaural beats can be used specifically to reduce stress, increase focus and induce restful sleep.
What are binaural beats?
The sensation of auditory binaural beats occurs when two coherent sounds of nearly similar frequencies are presented one to each ear with stereo headphones or speakers.
The brain integrates the two signals, producing a sensation of a third sound called the binaural beat.
For example, if a frequency of 100 Hz is played in one ear and 107 Hz is played in the other ear, a binaural
beat of 7 Hz is created by the brain.
Brain waves match or “follow” the binaural beat. If
the binaural beat is 7 Hz, an increase in brain waves of 7
Brain Waves & Consciousness
Beta (13-26 Hz) Alert concentration and problem-solving
