#MusicHeals – Part 1 in a Series of the Healing Powers of Music
We all know how music can soothe our soul. But now research suggests, music can heal our body as well. The National Institute of Health in Bethesda, Maryland neuroscientists have performed extensive research on the healing powers of music “Today, modern technologies are helping researchers learn more about how the brain works, what parts of the brain respond to music, and how music might help ease symptoms of certain diseases and conditions,” explains Dr. Finkelstein of the NIH. How do our Playing with Fire fans receive the full benefit of the healing power of music? Northwestern University neuroscientist, Dr. Nina Kraus, says, “Think of music like physical fitness or what you eat. To see the most health benefits, try to include music as a regular, consistent part of your life. It’s never too late to add music to your life.” Read the full article here on the healing power of music and view this amazing video from the BBC on the brain and music.
