What is the secret of music therapy?
Experts explain it this way: the human body is a vibrating system. And the sounds of music are waves (vibrations), only synchronized and ordered. Music tunes every cell of our body in a certain way, as a result of which all the processes of a physiological nature in the body can be accelerated and inhibited.
All the organs of our body have their own rhythm and tone of sound. Therefore, the concept of “right” and “healthy” music is formed from fairly realistic concepts: the rhythm (frequency) and loudness of the music.
What kind of music is good for your health?
- The less the rhythm of music, the better.
It does not matter what music you listen to: opera, classics or modern rave. Psychologist Konrad King proved that if the speed of a musical composition exceeds 60 beats per minute, it might increase your heart rate and blood pressure.
A specialist from Israel, Warren Brodsky, observed students who traveled the streets of the virtual city to music of different frequencies. As a result, with an increase in the pace of music, drivers ran the red light and got into an accident.
Music with a rhythm of 60 beats per minute, slows beta waves in the brain, and the brain stops experiencing stress and stabilizes. That’s why listening to music with such a rhythm allows you to get rid of nervousness and anxiety, improve your ability to work and mindfulness, normalize your general condition and return a sense of peace.
- The lower the volume of music, the better.
Canadian scientists have proven that loud music might slow you down. Researches asked volunteers to perform various tasks while listening to music, they were changing the volume from 53 dB (typical noise level in the office) to 95 dB. As a result, researches noticed that it takes 20% more time to perform physical and mental exercises while listening to louder music.
- It is important that you like the music you listen to.
Different music in different people causes different emotions. Therefore, the impact of the same composition on different people will be completely different.
When you enjoy your music, the brain ceases to spend energy on negative emotions, which positively affects your health.
