Using Music for Healthy Living

Tuning into the vibration of your own body; the rhythm of your breathing and heartbeat helps you to become more aware of the external sounds you hear. Music has the innate ability to affect both the emotional and the physical parts of our being. Each person has their own particular set of circumstances that make them respond differently to different types of music, for some music is more of an emotional experience, for others, they become physically animated.

Our emotional and physical states are connected, it has been called the “mind-body link”. Research has shown that there is a definite link between a persons emotional state and their physical conditions. When choosing music for therapeutic reasons, choose music that is compatible with your current state and then sequence it to move toward the state that you desire. this is called entrainment.

The entrainment process is quite evident in music. It is possible to have rhythmic entrainment, melodic entrainment and dynamic entrainment. Entrainment music has the potential to (1) resonate with the listener’s feelings, (2) transform negativity into positivity, and (3) promote a state of liveliness or serenity. Certain sounds, in specific sequence can help bring the listener from one place to another.
