Music can affect the functioning of the whole organism. A properly selected melody can regulate blood pressure, muscle tension, metabolic rate, and mood. This is the secret of music therapy.

Will we soon be treated instead of pillsmusicoozing from the speakers? It is quite possible because the body harmonizes the rhythm of work with the music. With a slower melody, the breathing rate and heartbeat slow down, with a faster beat.

Music therapy - the march wakes up

Properly selectedsounds , e.g. baroque music, also stimulate the body to produce endorphins. These are substances that strengthen the immune system and inhibit the development of the disease. This knowledge is used by anesthesiologists. When they play soft music with a soft melody, soft sound and little rhythm, they can reduce the doses of anesthetics. After the procedure, during awakening, anesthesiologists use music that is livelier, with a clear sound and a strongly marked rhythm (marches are ideal!).

Relaxing sounds

You set up a cassette or CD with an unusual composition, apart from musical sounds, there is bird singing, the sound of the wind in the branches of trees, splashes of water. You are listening and you feel relaxed,relax . Is it because it's nice music? Well, not only. Relaxing music is constructed in a specific way, its melodic line, like a sea wave, gently rises and falls alternately. In such an alternating rhythm, our muscles tense and relax. And it relaxes effectively. This is how works by Johann Sebastian Bach and baroque music in general work. Its steady pulsation evens out breathing, regulates the work of the nervous system, and helps to fall asleep. Meditative music also reduces stress. It lowers the level of adrenaline and cortisol, lowers blood pressure.

Music therapy from conception

Music can affect our lives from conception. The fetus hears sounds already in the third week of life, then its nervous system is formed. He recognizes his mother's heartbeat, the murmur of her intestines. Scientists believe that classical music is good for the development of the fetus. In many hospitals in the West, in neonatal wards, unusual music therapy is used. When the child has to stay in the incubator, the sounds recorded on the cassette are playedthe daily hustle and bustle of the house. And also the music that parents listened to most often before giving birth. When the baby hears these sounds, he immediately stops crying, the rhythm of his heart and breathing becomes even, and he sucks better. But be careful! Aggressive techno or heavy metal music can make your baby cry and make him anxious. For the elderly, music therapy is a kind of doping. Sounds, carrying a lot of energy and emotions, are perceived by the hearing organ as vibrations. When passed to the brain, they act as sparks of life.
