Music and Stress Relief

I think it's safe to say that for most people, music and stress relief go hand in hand. Whether you play an instrument, sing or just listen to music for enjoyment, music has a way of soothing our souls and helping us feel good.

For many of us music has become part of our everyday lives. It's hard to imagine a life without music!

Benefits of Music

The benefits of music cannot be denied, in fact studies have shown music to be a wonderful tool that can promote wellness and help us overcome many of the obstacles we face in life.

Music has shown to help us reduce blood pressure and to also build serotonin in the brain. In music therapy, an official therapy promoted and endorsed by the American Music Therapy Association, has shown music to be effective in managing stress, promoting physical rehabilitation, memory enhancement, emotional expression, pain management and better communication.

Research also shows us that music is an effective tool when added to other settings such as gyms, spas, child care facilities, waiting rooms, etc.

Let us not forget how music gets us to tap our feet, move our heads and dance!
