This made my night! A customer at the bar handed me a folded bar napkin with hearts drawn on it - I told him I'd open it when I got home. It was the nicest surprise when this guitar pick fell out. 💖💖💖 It truly made my night. Thank you! 💖
"One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain."-- Bob Marley🎸
Music is an art, entertainment, pleasure, and ... medicine for the body and soul. Playing music is one of the few activities that involve using the whole brain. Music is intrinsic to all cultures and has surprising benefits not only for learning language, improving memory and focusing attention, but also for physical coordination and development.
Not all types of music have favourable effects, however. Too loud or too jarring music can be distracting, and can compete for our attention with what we're trying to do. But for the most part, exposure to music, specifically classics, has beneficial effects:
1.Music heals 🎸Pain relief
Overall, music does have positive effects on pain management. It can help reduce the sensation as well as distress of both chronic pain and postoperative pain.
It may be difficult to believe, but music can help to reduce pain, chronic actually, resulting from several conditions, like osteoarthritis, disc problems or rheumatoid arthritis, by up to 21%. Music therapy is increasingly used in hospitals to reduce the need for medication during childbirth, or to decrease postoperative pain and complement the use of anesthesia during surgery.
There are several theories about how music positively affects perceived pain:
1. Music produces revulsive effect 2. Music may give the patient a sense of control 3. It causes the body to release endorphins to counteract pain 4. Slow music relaxes by slowing breathing and heartbeat.🎸 🎸
