This practice also makes use of music intervention during treatment procedures. Research done in this practice last 21 years provided sufficient scientific evidence to confirm the concept of a bi-directional communication between the brain and the immune system. It showed clearly that music had the capacity to modify emotional conditions, which again influenced the endocrine and nervous system and modulated the immune system. Music has also been shown to be effective in changing pain and anxiety perception and is an useful instrument for the motivation of healthy thoughts and behaviour.

BOOKS - MUSIC AND BABIES

Music and Babies introduces parents to the value music holds – before and during birth, for preterm infants, post-natal blues and in assisting with optimal functional status. Giving your baby a good start towards a happy, structured, loving and disciplined journey is a gift of a lifetime. Babies and toddlers need unconditional love to grow and develop into full human beings. Music is a powerful means of communicating love to your baby. The first and most continuous sense impression which the foetus receives in the womb is rhythm and the mother’s heartbeat. After birth, womb sounds in particular, are good to listen to and will help to raise a content baby.

Music in the neonatal intensive care unit has medical, emotional and economical advantages. Playing music to premature babies improve breathing, weight, heart rate and oxygen saturations.

If you suffer from postnatal blues and depression, music can be more accessible than words. It will help to express difficult emotions, act as a method of relaxation and well-being. Singing always creates a positive atmosphere. When you sing or hum, you express a direct feeling of care and love.

The book further notes the value of music for lifting the spirits and enabling important emotional release for parents struggling with demands of parenthood. It explores many scientific reports and studies, holds a few interesting stories and music lists.
