Los Angeles, CA – 12-02-2012 (JoeDolanPR): After long research into centuries of recorded data on how music has affected human health, Joe Vitale has taken his love of songwriting and self-improvement to another level with four CDs of music that have a surprising and astounding benefit. The music has a power to heal.
eMed Experts writes, “Music is one of the few activities that affects the whole brain, and therefore, the body. It is intrinsic to all cultures and has surprising benefits not only for health, but for improving memory, focus of attention and development of physical coordination.”
Through careful administration of both the science of music and the pure joy of listening, Vitale has recorded hours of music that reaches the
body on a level that no other outside influence can achieve. Creating audible rhythms that work in unison with the body’s natural rhythms, the heartbeat and breathing as an example, a well crafted song can trigger the mind to clear and the body to release endorphins that remove pain, release stress and relax tension. This is just the beginning of how music can remove hindrance that keeps the body from healing naturally.
As an effective therapy, used by medical professionals for pain management, music serves to both reduce and remove the sensation of distress from post-operative and chronic pain. In more than 20 percent of hospitals across the United States, medical professionals administer music therapy to patients suffering through painful conditions including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and common surgery and even during childbirth. Doctors have found that music is a complimentary addition to anesthesia during surgery as well as a comfort during recovery.
The theories behind how and why music is effective in pain management include:
1. Music helps to distract the mind from focusing on pain.
2. Music can relax the body, regulating heartbeat and breathing, therefore reducing anxiety.
3. Music causes the body to counteract pain by releasing beneficial endorphins.
4. Music can give a patient the sense of control in a troubling situation.
A study published in the June 2006 issue of the Journal of Advanced Nursing found that listening to music daily reduced chronic pain, made people feel more in control of their pain, reduced depression, and made people feel less disabled by their condition. It is more than just turning on the radio that offers these effects. Vitale’s research has shown that when music is offered without distraction from commercial airplay or a wide diversity in musical genre, the consistency of the melodies keeps the mind focused on naturally healing the body. The resulting work from what Vitale has learned enabled him to create uplifting and powerful music that when applied as a therapy, for even 20 minutes at a time, can help the body to heal.
Further published texts offer that music can also be a medicine for the heart. Studies have shown that in regards to the body’s heartbeat, it’s more than just the style of music, but the tempo that the music plays to that offer's benefit. Both Italian and British researchers discovered surprising affects on the heartbeat and rhythm of breathing during studies. They played six types of music through headphones to groups of individuals in different age ranges and with different backgrounds. As expected, when faster tempos played, their heartbeats and breathing measured at a faster rate. When slower and more relaxed tempos played, their heartbeats and breathing slowed pace. The surprising facts in the data showed that during breaks in the music, the heartbeat and breathing of the subjects normalized and functioned at peak ability, regardless of whether the subjects had a like or dislike to the music being played. The benefit of hearing it surpassed the interest in the musical genre altogether. It proved that the science of rhythm and harmony goes beyond personal taste and reaches the body on a natural level.
In review of the following websites, the music Joe Vitale has recorded is explained in both style and benefit. Each CD offers a focus on better health, overcoming strife and focusing on positive measures that give a lasting positive benefit to even the most common of daily situations.
