Music as Therapy?
Frustrated in a gridlocked?
Job got you stressed out?
The children have you going crazy?
You pop in your favorite tune and you take a deep breathand as if by magic for a few minutes nothing matters anymore!
No it's no magic! It's music and it's power!
Truly amazing isn't it?
Even plants responds to music as was proven by some researcherat a well known university in the USA.
Why? Many reasons, I am sure some scientist would quote somethingabout physiological responses to stimuli within the progressions of notes.
A psychologist on the other hand would no doubt say it's psychosomatic.
Myself I simply think that while we are focusing on the music we ignorewhatever is troubling us a kind of bio feedback effect so to speak.
The important fact of the matter is that it works!!!
That in itself is ample reason for me, I really dont care about any other reason there might be, it's not important except to that particular researcheror scientist with a thesis to prove.
I believe it's high time we move away from the television! I read somewherethere are more televisions being sold than tubs and showers combined whichgoes to show more brain being washed than bodies.
It's time for parents and children to get together and listen and talk about each others music. ask each other:
"Why do you like it?"
"What does it say?"Why is it important to you?
If you ask me it's a simple and easy way to make contact, to initiate communicationon a safe level and discover thing about each others you did not know...
Music as therapy? Why the heck not? It's a lot cheaper and make more sensethan most self help gurus that try to sell you some high price drivel...
Remember that famous phase that said "Make your baby listen to Mozart and youwill have a baby genius?
The study, in fact, showed it was a very limited and tempory effect and all the testshad been done on adults only!!!
That did not stop a whole slew of profit minded individuals and companies from exploiting this to make a bundle on a false assertion.
Music is not the end all but merely one more mean to make us feel better!
No more! No less!
Listen to music because it makes you feel good, simple enough?
