Breathing-control lowers blood pressure. (1/105)

We hypothesise that routinely applied short sessions of slow and regular breathing can lower blood pressure (BP). Using a new technology BIM (Breathe with Interactive Music), hypertensive patients were guided towards slow and regular breathing. The present study evaluates the efficacy of the BIM in lowering BP. We studied 33 patients (23M/10F), aged 25-75 years, with uncontrolled BP. Patients were randomised into either active treatment with the BIM (n = 18) or a control treatment with a Walkman (n = 15). Treatment at home included either musically-guided breathing exercises with the BIM or listening to quiet music played by a Walkman for 10 min daily for 8 weeks. BP and heart rate were measured both at the clinic and at home with an Omron IC BP monitor. Clinic BP levels were measured at baseline, and after 4 and 8 weeks of treatment. Home BP measurements were taken daily, morning and evening, throughout the study. The two groups were matched by initial BP, age, gender, body mass index and medication status. The BP change at the clinic was -7.5/-4.0 mm Hg in the active treatment group, vs -2.9/-1.5 mm Hg in the control group (P = 0.001 for systolic BP). Analysis of home-measured data showed an average BP change of -5.0/-2.7 mm Hg in the active treatment group and -1.2/+0.9 mm Hg in the control group. Ten out of 18 (56%) were defined as responders in the active treatment group but only two out of 14 (14%) in the control group (P = 0.02). Thus, breathing exercise guided by the BIM device for 10 min daily is an effective non-pharmacological modality to reduce BP.  (+info)

Treating hypertension with a device that slows and regularises breathing: a randomised, double-blind controlled study. (2/105)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the efficacy of a new device, which slows and regularises breathing, as a non-pharmacological treatment of hypertension and thus to evaluate the contribution of breathing modulation in the blood pressure (BP) reduction. DESIGN AND SETTING: Randomised, double-blind controlled study, carried out in three urban family practice clinics in Israel. PATIENTS: Sixty-five male and female hypertensives, either receiving antihypertensive drug therapy or unmedicated. Four patients dropped out at the beginning of the study. INTERVENTION: Self treatment at home, 10 minutes daily for 8 consecutive weeks, using either the device (n = 32), which guides the user towards slow and regular breathing using musical sound patterns, or a Walkman, with which patients listened to quiet music (n = 29). Medication was unchanged 2 months prior to and during the study period. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Systolic BP, diastolic BP and mean arterial pressure (MAP) changes from baseline. RESULTS: BP reduction in the device group was significantly greater than a predetermined 'clinically meaningful threshold' of 10.0, 5.0 and 6.7 mm Hg for the systolic BP, diastolic BP and MAP respectively (P = 0.035, P = 0.0002 and P = 0.001). Treatment with the device reduced systolic BP, diastolic BP and MAP by 15.2, 10.0 and 11.7 mm Hg respectively, as compared to 11.3, 5.6 and 7.5 mm Hg (P = 0.14, P = 0.008, P = 0.03) with the Walkman. Six months after treatment had stopped, diastolic BP reduction in the device group remained greater than the 'threshold' (P < 0.02) and also greater than in the walkman group (P = 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: The device was found to be efficacious in reducing high BP during 2 months of self-treatment by patients at home. Breathing pattern modification appears to be an important component in this reduction.  (+info)

Application of receptive music therapy in internal medicine and cardiology. (3/105)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects of receptive music therapy in clinical practice. METHODS: Receptive music therapy was individually applied via musical auditions, including five stages: musical stimulation, sensation, situation, reflection, and behavioral alteration. Following anamnesis and obtainment of consent, patients answered a first questionnaire on health risk evaluation (Q1), and after participating in 16 weekly music therapy sessions, answered a second one (Q2). RESULTS: Two men and 8 women, aged above 18 years, referred to us due to symptoms of stress, emotional suffering, and the need to change lifestyles (health risk behavior) were studied between August 1998 and December 1999. Comparison between answers to Q1 and Q2, showed a trend (P=0.059) for reduction of ingestion of cholesterol-rich foods and for increased prospects in life with a tendency towards improvement, and also of increased intake of fiber-rich food (55.6%), increased levels of personal satisfaction (44.5%), and decreased levels of stress (66.7%). CONCLUSION: The study demonstrated decreased stress levels and increased personal satisfaction, higher consumption of fiber-rich food, lower cholesterol intake, and a better perspective on life, suggesting that receptive music therapy may be applied in clinical practice as an auxiliary therapeutic intervention for the treatment of behavioral health risks.  (+info)

Effects of distraction using virtual reality glasses during lumbar punctures in adolescents with cancer. (4/105)

PURPOSE/OBJECTIVES: To determine the effects of virtual reality (VR) glasses on adolescents with cancer undergoing lumbar punctures (LPs). DESIGN: Pilot study using an experimental, control group design. SETTING: In-hospital oncology clinic. SAMPLE: 30 adolescents with cancer (17 in the VR and 13 in the control group) undergoing frequent LPs. METHODS: Subjects were randomly assigned to groups. Both groups received standard intervention during the LP, but the experimental group also wore VR glasses and watched a video. Following the LP, both groups rated their pain using a visual analog scale (VAS) and were interviewed to evaluate their experience. MAIN RESEARCH VARIABLES: Pain, subjective evaluation of experience. FINDINGS: Although VAS pain scores were not statistically different between the two groups (p = 0.77), VAS scores tended to be lower in the VR group (median VAS of 7.0, range 0-48) than in the control group (median VAS of 9.0, range 0-59). 77% of subjects in the experimental group said the VR glasses helped to distract them from the LP. CONCLUSIONS: VR glasses are a feasible, age-appropriate, nonpharmacologic adjunct to conventional care in managing the pain associated with LPs in adolescents. IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE: The clinical application of various age-appropriate distracters to reduce pain in adolescents undergoing painful procedures should be explored.  (+info)

Fetal learning: a prospective randomized controlled study. (5/105)

OBJECTIVES: To examine whether prenatal exposure to a music stimulus alters fetal behavior and whether this continues into the newborn period. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: A prospective randomized control trial was conducted using an exposure learning model in 20 normal term pregnancies. Music was played to ten fetuses via a headphone on the maternal abdomen. Ten controls had the headphone without sound. All fetal studies took place within 72 h prior to elective delivery. All 20 newborns were exposed to the same music on days 3-5. Computerized assessment of fetal heart rate and activity was documented and neonatal behavioral states were recorded. Nonparametric statistical analysis was used. RESULTS: For the first hour of study, exposed fetuses had higher mean heart rates (FHR) and spent more time exhibiting high FHR variation compared to unexposed fetuses, but neither of these differences was statistically significant. However, by the fourth hour the exposed fetuses not only demonstrated these two features but also exhibited more state transitions (P = 0.01) and higher FHR variation (P = 0.04) compared to unexposed fetuses. These effects were carried over into the neonatal period with prenatally exposed newborns manifesting more state transitions (P = 0.01) and spending a higher proportion of time in awake states (P = 0.05) when exposed to the same music stimulus. CONCLUSION: Prenatal music exposure alters the fetal behavioral state and is carried forward to the newborn period. This suggests that a simple form of fetal programming or learning has occurred.  (+info)

Complementary therapy for addiction: "drumming out drugs". (6/105)

OBJECTIVES: This article examines drumming activities as complementary addiction treatments and discusses their reported effects. METHODS: I observed drumming circles for substance abuse (as a participant), interviewed counselors and Internet mailing list participants, initiated a pilot program, and reviewed literature on the effects of drumming. RESULTS: Research reviews indicate that drumming enhances recovery through inducing relaxation and enhancing theta-wave production and brain-wave synchronization. Drumming produces pleasurable experiences, enhanced awareness of preconscious dynamics, release of emotional trauma, and reintegration of self. Drumming alleviates self-centeredness, isolation, and alienation, creating a sense of connectedness with self and others. Drumming provides a secular approach to accessing a higher power and applying spiritual perspectives. CONCLUSIONS: Drumming circles have applications as complementary addiction therapy, particularly for repeated relapse and when other counseling modalities have failed.  (+info)

Sound therapy induced relaxation: down regulating stress processes and pathologies. (7/105)

The use of music as a means of inducing positive emotions and subsequent relaxation has been studied extensively by researchers. A great deal of this research has centered on the use of music as a means of reducing feelings of anxiety and stress as well as aiding in the relief of numerous pathologies. The precise mechanism responsible for these mediated effects has never been truly determined. In the current report we propose that nitric oxide (NO) is the molecule chiefly responsible for these physiological and psychological relaxing effects. Furthermore this molecules importance extends beyond the mechanistic, and is required for the development of the very process that it mediates. Nitric oxide has been determined to aid in the development of the auditory system and participate in cochlear blood flow. We show that NO is additionally responsible for the induced exhibited physiological effects. We proceed to outline the precise neurochemical pathway leading to these effects. Furthermore we explore the interrelationship between the varying emotion centers within the central nervous system and explain how the introduction of music can mediate its effects via NO coupled to these complex pathways.  (+info)

Music therapy for mood disturbance during hospitalization for autologous stem cell transplantation: a randomized controlled trial. (8/105)

BACKGROUND: High-dose therapy with autologous stem cell transplantation (HDT/ASCT) is a commonly used treatment for hematologic malignancies. The procedure causes significant psychological distress and no interventions have been demonstrated to improve mood in these patients. Music therapy has been shown to improve anxiety in a variety of acute medical settings. In the current study, the authors determined the effects of music therapy compared with standard care on mood during inpatient stays for HDT/ASCT. METHODS: Patients with hematologic malignancy admitted for HDT/ASCT at two sites (Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Ireland Cancer Center in Cleveland, Ohio) were randomized to receive music therapy given by trained music therapists or standard care. Outcome was assessed at baseline and every 3 days after randomization using the Profile of Mood States. RESULTS: Of 69 patients registered in the study, follow-up data were available for 62 (90%). During their inpatient stay, patients in the music therapy group scored 28% lower on the combined Anxiety/Depression scale (P = 0.065) and 37% lower (P = 0.01) on the total mood disturbance score compared with controls. CONCLUSIONS: Music therapy is a noninvasive and inexpensive intervention that appears to reduce mood disturbance in patients undergoing HDT/ASCT.  (+info)

Differences in symptom scores at the end of treatment were smaller than those reported in previous studies of music therapy for inpatients (Tang et al, 1994; Hayashi et al, 2002). Multiple factors could be responsible for these differences. First, previous studies provided more intensive interventions and achieved higher levels of attendance at therapy sessions. For instance, Tang and colleagues reported that all patients involved in their trial attended all music therapy sessions. We were keen to examine the effects of music therapy in an acute in-patient setting. The length of in-patient stay has decreased in most mental health units over recent years (National Statistics, 2004), and in the present study the majority of participants had left the in-patient unit before the end of therapy. As a result of this, a third of those randomised to music therapy had fewer than the four sessions we aimed to deliver to them. Previous studies have examined the impact of music therapy among people with ...

Title: Medical Music Therapy Based on Baby Science (Baby-Science-Based Music Therapy) and Assistive Technology for Children. VOLUME: 3 ISSUE: 3. Author(s): Tohshin Go. Affiliation:Department of Infants Brain and Cognitive Development, Tokyo Womens Medical University, 8-1 Kawada- cho, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo 162-8666, Japan.. Keywords:Music therapy, baby science, developmental disorder, neuromuscular disorder, assistive technology, infant studies. Abstract: Music is a good tool to communicate with children no matter what kinds of disorders they have because therapists can interact with them via music and musical instruments without using a single word. Verbal and physical abilities are limited in patients who are physically, cognitively, and socially disabled. Babies also have a similar limitation. Baby science is interdisciplinary research investigating how infants understand and communicate with the surrounding world. Therefore, medical music therapy based on baby science (baby-science-based music ...
Introduction. Long term music therapy for people with intellectual disabilities and the NDIS. As the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) fully rolls out across Australia, participants will be able to choose the providers of all their services. Upon entering the scheme, participants may use a NDIS planner who can provide advice regarding the range of services which may be accessed. Music therapy has a long history of working with people with intellectual disabilities (Alvin, 1965; Nordoff & Robbins, 1971) and is provided for under the support category of Capacity Building for Improved Daily Living in the NDIS Price Guide (Australian Department of Human Services (DHS), 2016).. To date the inclusion of music therapy in a participants NDIS plan has been ad hoc with some participants gaining approval for music therapy services and others not. To address these issues a White Paper was recently prepared for the Australian Music Therapy Association (AMTA) discussing the inclusion of music ...

The purpose of this pilot study was to assess the effects of music therapy on comfort in acute mechanically ventilated patients in the Intensive Care Unit. Mechanical ventilation leads to decreased comfort. Pain and anxiety may increase during this treatment modality, and the literature suggests this may directly affect patient comfort levels. Music therapy as a nursing intervention within the context of comfort, pain, and anxiety of mechanically ventilated patients was investigated. This quasi-experiemental study used a pre-test and post-test design with subjects serving as their own control. The convenience sample consisted of 2 men and 3 women who were mechanically ventilated and fit the selection criteria. Dependent variables measured included comfort, pain, and anxiety. Physiologic dependent measures included heart rate, respiratory rate, and systolic and diastolic blood pressure collected at timed intervals. Comfort was measured using a modified version of the Hospice Comfort ...
Introduction: There is evidence from earlier trials for the efficacy of music therapy in the treatment of depression among working-age people. Starting therapy sessions with relaxation and revisiting therapeutic themes outside therapy have been deemed promising for outcome enhancement. However, previous music therapy trials have not investigated this issue.Objective: To investigate the efficacy of two enhancers, resonance frequency breathing (RFB) and listening homework (LH), when combined with an established music therapy model (trial registration number ISRCTN11618310).Methods: In a 2 × 2 factorial randomised controlled trial, working-age individuals with depression were allocated into groups based on four conditions derived from either the presence or absence of two enhancers (RFB and LH). All received music therapy over 6 weeks. Outcomes were observed at 6 weeks and 6 months. The primary outcome was the Montgomery Åsberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) score.Results: There was a significant

Evidence suggests that music therapy is beneficial for all individuals, both physically and mentally. Benefits of music therapy include improved heart rate, reduced anxiety, stimulation of the brain, and improved learning. Music therapists use their techniques to help their patients in many areas, ranging from stress relief before and after surgeries to neuropathologies such as Alzheimers disease. One study found that children who listened to music while having an IV inserted into their arms showed less distress and felt less pain than the children who did not listen to music while having an IV inserted.[3] Studies on patients diagnosed with mental disorders such as anxiety, depression, and schizophrenia have shown a visible improvement in their mental health after music therapy.[4] ...
Despite recent advances in medicine, patients with advanced illness continue to report high rates of suffering due to psychoexistential concerns such as loss of function, meaninglessness and anxieties in relation to death and dying. Palliative care recognises the total pain experienced by end-of-life patients and supports the use of adjunct complementary therapies to address aspects of patient suffering still outside the remit of medical science and technology.. Music therapy is frequently used as a palliative therapy and entails the use of music to achieve individual goals in the context of a therapeutic relationship with a professional music therapist. Aligning with the goals of palliative care, the primary aim of music therapy is to improve peoples quality of life by relieving physical and psychological symptoms, facilitating communication and alleviating spiritual or existential concerns.. However, there are currently no guidelines in place for the use of music therapy in palliative care. ...

Despite a well-established framework of practical applications, evidence of the efficacy of music therapy in dementia care is inconsistent. This project tested a new evaluation protocol to look at clients participation in music therapy from the standpoint of engagement rather than cognitive abilities and behaviour. The first stage involved the development of a new scale of musical engagement to assess the clients engagement as a function of creativity, duration, energy, and assertiveness. In the second stage 12 elderly clients with dementia participated in 20 weekly music therapy sessions to identify potential relationships between participants level of musical engagement and their self-assessed quality of life. Results: While relationships between the variables were not statistically significant, there was an indication that increases in self-assessed quality of life may have been related to a decrease and/or stability in the level of musical engagement. Results also showed that the level of ...

Not to long ago, a study from the Kansas looked at some aspect of this. The investigators evaluated the impact of music therapy with and without a specific emphasis on emotional-approach coping. This randomized, controlled trial aimed to use Active Music Engagement with Emotional-Approach Coping to improve well-being in post-operative liver and kidney transplant recipients (N = 29). Results indicated that music therapy led to significant increases in positive affect, music therapy using led to significant decreases in pain, and both conditions led to significant decreases in negative affect, an indicator of perceived stress/anxiety. Another study that had evaluated this in Minnesota: Results indicated there were significant improvements in self-reported levels of relaxation, anxiety , pain, and nausea. Although there was no reliability measure, there were significant increases in positive verbalizations and positive affect in liver and kidney transplant recipients. It appears that in both the ...

BACKGROUND: Chest tube removal is an extremely painful procedure and patients may not respond well to palliative therapies. This study aimed to examine the effect of cold and music therapy individually, as well as a combination of these interventions on reducing pain following chest tube removal. METHODS: A factorial randomized-controlled clinical trial was performed on 180 patients who underwent cardiac surgery. Patients were randomized into four groups of 45. Group A used ice packs for 20 minutes prior to chest tube removal. Group B was assigned to listen to music for a total length of 30 minutes which started 15 minutes prior to chest tube removal. Group C received a combination of both interventions; and Group D received no interventions. Pain intensity was measured in each group every 15 minutes for a total of 3 readings. Analysis of variance, Tukey and Bonferroni post hoc tests, as well as repeated measures ANOVA were employed for data analysis. RESULTS: Cold therapy and combined method

The use of music on FOX drama The O.C. gained much acclaim. Show creator Josh Schwartz wanted music to be a character on the show and the experienced Alexandra Patsavas took the role of music supervisor. The shows orchestral music was composed by Christopher Tyng. The series is credited with showcasing many artists, and helping to elevate them in the music business. Many acts made guest appearances on the show, and others premiered their new singles in episodes. Six official soundtracks were released, and these were compilations of predominantly indie music. Alexandra Patsavas, who had previously worked on shows including Roswell High and Carnivàle, was appointed as music supervisor on The O.C.. Patsavas worked alongside creator Josh Schwartz, in selecting the music to be used. In an interview with IGN, Schwartz said that he had always intended that music be a character on the show and music was selected in two ways: either it was written into the script or it was selected to suit a scene. ...
We all have different preferences in music. It moves us in different ways, whether it is calming, or makes us happy or even angry and irritated. Music is therapeutic; it evokes memories and emotions, good and bad. We all react differently to different melodies, and animals are no different. Whales and birds sing their own songs and other species make beautiful music, especially during mating season. But do animals appreciate human tunes? Many do. Elephants have been known to dance to classical music, and there are many articles about cows that enjoy relaxing music. The University of Leicester researchers discovered that cows produced 3% more milk when they were listening to music by REM, Simon & Garfunkel and classical music, as opposed to hard rock music.

Editors note: The use of music in therapy for the brain has evolved rapidly as brain-imaging techniques have revealed the brains plasticity-its ability to change-and have identified networks that music activates. Armed with this growing knowledge, doctors and researchers are employing music to retrain the injured brain. Studies by the authors and other researchers have revealed that because music and motor control share circuits, music can improve movement in patients who have suffered a stroke or who have Parkinsons disease. Research has shown that neurologic music therapy can also help patients with language or cognitive difficulties, and the authors suggest that these techniques should become part of rehabilitative care. Future findings may well indicate that music should be included on the list of therapies for a host of other disorders as well. The role of music in therapy has gone through some dramatic shifts in the past 15 years, driven by new insights from research into music and ...
On admission to rescue and rehoming centres dogs are faced with a variety of short- and long-term stressors including novelty, spatial/social restriction and increased noise levels. Animate and inanimate environmental enrichment techniques have been employed within the kennel environment in an attempt to minimise stress experienced by dogs. Previous studies have shown the potential physiological and psychological benefits of auditory stimulation, particularly classical music, within the kennel environment. This study determined the physiological/psychological changes that occur when kennelled dogs are exposed to long-term (7 days) auditory stimulation in the form of classical music through assessment of effects on heart rate variability (HRV), salivary cortisol and behaviour. The study utilised a cross over design in which two groups were exposed to two consecutive 7 day treatments; silence (control) and classical music (test). Group A was studied under silent conditions followed by 7 days of ...
In an early scene in The Tree of Life, the new movie by Terrence Malick, an authoritarian patriarch played by Brad Pitt disrupts a family dinner to instruct his three young sons in the appreciation of classical music.. Before their inexpressive faces, he brandishes an album cover of Brahms Fourth Symphony, performed by the NBC Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Arturo Toscanini. Pitts character rather obnoxiously conducts along to the recording, which has been playing throughout the meal, and exhorts his boys to open their ears to Brahms majestic chords.. Classical music clearly plays an important role in this 1950s suburban Texas household, as it does in The Tree of Life.. In each of his five feature films to date, Malick has used classical music as his principal soundtrack. The Tree of Life features selections and snippets from more than 30 individual pieces -- including works by Brahms, Mahler, Bach, Górecki and Holst. They are all woven together seamlessly with the help of some ...
For those of you interested in music and the brain, I recommend Daniel Levitins book, This is Your Brain on Music. Levins book is especially interesting because he started his career as a musician. He knows a lot about music and has some interesting stories about songs and musicians. He now teaches and researches at McGill. In his book he talks about the brain, how music is processed, and related MRI research. What was interesting to me is how many parts of the brain are used to process music. Given that music can evoke powerful emotions, I assumed that the amygdala and primitive brain centers would be involved. Surprisingly, listening to music involves anticipation and memory which rely on higher cerebral functions. Many brain centers are used to enjoy music. There is not one localized brain center for music. In a very accessible book, Levin combines his knowledge about music with state of the art neuroscience. Anyone who is interested in music and the brain should definitely read this book. ...
Dementia is the most significant health issue facing our aging population. With no cure to date, there is an urgent need for the development of interventions that can alleviate symptoms of dementia and ensure optimal well-being for people with dementia and their caregivers. There is accumulating evidence that music is a highly effective, non-pharmacological treatment for various symptoms of dementia at all stages of disease progression. In its various forms, music (as a medium for formal therapy or an informal activity) engages widespread brain regions, and in doing so, can promote numerous benefits, including triggering memories, enhancing relationships, affirming a sense of self, facilitating communication, reducing agitation, and alleviating depression and anxiety. This book outlines the current research and understanding of the use of music for people with dementia, from internationally renowned experts in music therapy, music psychology, and clinical neuropsychology.
Aim. To evaluate the effect of bed rest with music on relaxation for patients who have undergone heart surgery on postoperative day one.. Background. Music intervention has been evaluated as an appropriate nursing intervention to reduce patients pain, stress and anxiety levels in several clinical settings, but its effectiveness in increasing patients subjective and objective relaxation levels has not been examined.. Design. A randomised controlled trial.. Method. Forty patients undergoing open coronary artery bypass grafting and/or aortic valve replacement surgery were randomly allocated to either music listening during bed rest (n = 20) or bed rest only (n = 20). Relaxation was assessed during bed rest the day after surgery by determining the plasma oxytocin, heart rate, mean arterial blood pressure, PaO2, SaO2 and subjective relaxation levels.. Results. In the music group, levels of oxytocin increased significantly in contrast to the control group for which the trend over time was negative ...
Ronit Azoulay, flautist: The flute is to work with her breathing. Im breathing as I play the flute. Im noticing her breathing rate and matching it with maybe one or two note phrases, maybe longer. She is on a respirator. One of the things that can be a struggle on a respirator is that it can be uncomfortable. So were both looking to influence the rhythms but also the relaxation in the body.. Research has demonstrated that we entrained to sounds outside of us and rhythms. The word entrainment is from physics originally, and in this context it means is that we synchronize with external rhythms in music.. Doctor at Beth Israel: We wanted to study whether or not music therapy would impact on quality of life, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation. The challenge of having chronic lung disease very much has to do with breathing and breathing correctly and training people to breathe as well as possible. When engaged in that effort one can see better oxygen levels, less shortness of breath.. Ronit ...

This bilateral overlap has applications to therapy as well as language instruction. The effect of music on memory is highly complex, with different types of musical memory engaging unique representations of neural correlates. Musical memory is not represented symmetrically across the brain. Studies have shown that there is a significant amount of lateralization, with asymmetrical specialization, in processing specific elements of musical stimuli. Not only are there distinctive brain regions responsible for memory types, but different brain regions are also responsible for characterizing diverse types of music such as lyrical and non-lyrical (instrumental). Music has also been empirically shown to affect human emotions and higher cognitive processes. Neuroimaging studies have demonstrated that listening to music strongly activates the limbic and paralimbic emotional areas of the brain, as well as the nucleus accumbens which is involved in motivation and reward processing ...

Music therapists use guided affect regulation in the treatment of mood disorders. However, self-directed uses of music in affect regulation are not fully understood. Some uses of music may have negative effects on mental health, as can non-music regulation strategies, such as rumination. Psychological testing and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) were used explore music listening strategies in relation to mental health. Participants (n=123) were assessed for depression, anxiety and Neuroticism, and uses of Music in Mood Regulation (MMR). Neural responses to music were measured in the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) in a subset of participants (n=56). Discharge, using music to express negative emotions, related to increased anxiety and Neuroticism in all participants and particularly in males. Males high in Discharge showed decreased activity of mPFC during music listening compared with those using less Discharge. Females high in Diversion, using music to distract from negative emotions,

Worldwide, the leading cause of death is ischemic heart disease. Other than medical and surgical management, alternative therapy such as relaxing music has been identified as having an impact on reducing morbidity in ischemic heart disease. Although several studies have been conducted to find out the impact of music on pain, anxiety, heart rate and stress in myocardial ischaemia, literature on the long term impact of music on severity of symptoms associated with stable angina is very sparse. Therefore, the whole purpose of this study was to determine the long term effects of Indian music on severity of symptoms in patients with stable angina. Methodology: A single blind randomized clinical trial was conducted on 60 patients of 45 to 65 years of age with stable angina. Intervention group (n = 30) listened to a music based on Indian classical system at home twice a day complementary to their regular treatment for a period of one month. Control group (n = 30) was only on their usual treatment. Both groups
The Royal Childrens Hospital Speech Pathology Department (RCH SPD) provides services to children with Cleft Palate (CP) and velopharyngeal dysfunction (VPD) in a geographical region that is more than twice the size of Texas, with 30% of the children residing in regional areas. The geographical distribution of the population means that many families are unable to access local speech therapy. To address this problem, the RCH SPD and Music Therapy departments (MTD) collaborated to create a clinical resource for regional children and families. The package is intended to facilitate an increase in childrens consonant inventory, frequency of vocalizations, vocabulary, and communicative opportunity and increase oral airflow during speech. It is also intended to facilitate family-centered care and increase the parent and childs motivation to participate in speech therapy activities within the home environment. The clinical resource has now been distributed to 70 children with cleft palate in ...
On the death of Jutta, Hildegard was elected abbess, but she later built her own convent in Rupertsberg, near Bingen. While head of that community, she continued to write with the assistance of Volmar and also traveled, preached, and corresponded with popes, emperors and kings. She transcribed her own music, whose beauty, mystical qualities, and unexpected use of wide intervals has been compared to a Gothic cathedral. Hildegards conception of music, that it was a means for rising up to God, was analogous to that of Sufism, a tradition remote from her experience. Hildegard is considered the mother of music therapy because she praised the curative properties of music. Her death at the age of 81 years came after a long life that did not lack conflicts with authority, in which she prevailed because she was both shrewd and greatly respected. She nonetheless always declared herself a poor, weak creature and humble servant of God. Official recognition came only much later, when Pope Benedict XVI ...

The beat of the music can actually stimulate the waves in the brain in sync with the music beat. So that the relatively faster beats, can instigate sharper thinking modes and similarly slow music can promote calmness in the brain. This ability of the music can be used to a great advantage.

Guvenc is a clinical psychologist, practicing musicologist, and Sufi sheik who heads his own department of music therapy at a med school in Istanbul. Hes also a warm, intent, unvirtuosic, spiritually contained singer who plays ney (a flute), oud (a lute), and rebab (a three-stringed fiddle). He and his three associates recorded these six pieces during a blizzard in western Massachusetts while fasting for Ramadan. All six are zhikrs, recitations of Gods names. Their distinct rhythms are mesmeric rather than exciting, and while theyre not the healing music that is Guvencs lifework, I can testify that they helped get me through a 101-degree fever--and that I love them when Im straight as well.

However, recent surveys suggest there is, on the contrary, a resurgence of home music making. In the radio program Amateurs Help Keep Chamber Music Alive from 2005, reporter Theresa Schiavone cites a Gallup poll showing an increase in the sale of stringed instruments in America. Joe Lamond, president of the National Association of Music Manufacturers (NAMM) attributes the increase to a growth of home music-making by adults approaching retirement. I would really look to the demographics of the [baby] boomers, he said in an interview. These people are starting to look for something that matters to them ... nothing makes them feel good more than playing music.[75] A study by the European Music Office in 1996 suggests that not only older people are playing music. The number of adolescents today to have done music has almost doubled by comparison with those born before 1960, the study shows.[76] While most of this growth is in popular music, some is in chamber music and art music, according ...

As Benjamin Schweitzer explains in the CD booklet, ...there is something in the gestures and tonality of [Baroque music], which is closer to modern times than one would assume in the first place. The Freiburg project is a fascinating exercise in reversing the early music trickle up effect that I referred to in the post that started the specialisation hare running. All the young composers fully exploit the unique sonic palette of the Baroque instruments and the result is both thought provoking new music and a valuable exercise in ear candling. Although copies can still be found, Harmonia Mundis About Baroque CD is now deleted and cannot be bought as an MP3 download. Why are so many of the CDs that feature here deleted? As Mahler and a handful of others increasingly dominate concert and CD/MP3 release schedules whatever happened to classical musics much vaunted long tail ...

Special diets: Sometimes parents of children with autism follow a restricted diet for their children. The claim is that these diets may help with childrens behavioral and learning difficulties.
