What is the secret of the healing effect of music on a person? There are different points of view on this issue. Some scientists, mostly psychotherapists, believe that the healing properties of music are based on its ability to influence a person’s psychoemotional state. The tendency of people to diseases such as hypertension, angina, stomach ulcers, etc., is often explained not by physical infirmity or hereditary predisposition, but by the characteristics of the person’s character, his worldview and attitude to the surrounding reality. It turns out, stomach ulcer and duodenal ulcer; guts, hypertension often affects people who are intolerant of mistakes and “wrong” behavior of other people, rigidly adhere to their principles and views, are hostile and oppose themselves to others. If a person is constantly fixated on their own shortcomings, unsure of themselves – this is a direct path to migraines, heart arrhythmias, bronchial asthma. To avoid or cure a psychosomatic illness (this is the name of this group of diseases), you need to change, if not the character of the person, then at least his attitude to his problems and to life in General. And music here is one of the main tools of therapeutic influence. It is believed that listening to the works of Borodin, Chopin, Beethoven helps to understand your own feelings, to know yourself better. Tchaikovsky’s symphonies free the soul from suffering and unpleasant memories. Brahms, Bach’s slow works and Liszt’s preludes help to overcome shyness and excessive shyness, Shostakovich’s music helps to keep negative emotions (anger, irritability) under control. The works of Mozart and Bizet, the dance works of Strauss, Kalman and legard form an optimistic attitude in a person, and listening to Chopin’s piano concertos makes the attitude to the surrounding world more positive and joyful.
According to another theory, the main healing factor in music is rhythm. Rhythm is considered the heart of music, and, according to some music therapy specialists, it is the basis of its therapeutic properties. In nature, everything is subject to certain rhythms, and the human body is no exception. Each organ in the “human” system vibrates in its own way, and its vibrations coincide with the rhythm and energy of well-defined sounds and instruments.
It is proved that when the functions of an organ are violated, it begins to work in a different rhythm, the frequency and strength of its vibrations change. A bad heart is a Prime example. And that’s where the music comes in. If you know what instrument the organ that has lost its rhythm sounds in unison with, and regularly listen to the music played on it, the rhythms of the “healing” instrument will help the human body regain its former “sound”.
So, which tool is responsible for what ? It is believed that:
– the violin heals the soul, helps to enter the path of self-knowledge, excites in the soul compassion, readiness for self-sacrifice;
– the organ puts the mind in order, harmonizes the energy flow of the spine, it is called a conductor of energy ” space-earth-space”;
– piano cleanses the thyroid gland;
– the drum restores the rhythm of the heart, puts the circulatory system in order;
– the flute cleanses and expands the lungs;
– harp harmonizes the work of the heart;
– cello has a beneficial effect on the kidneys;
– cymbals “balance” the liver;
– accordion and accordion activate the abdominal cavity;
– the saxophone, the most” sexy ” instrument, activates sexual energy.
Not only instruments, but also musical works have a therapeutic effect. So, for insomnia, it is recommended to select music whose rhythm is slightly slower than the heart rate (works in the Baroque style or Blues are suitable). For hypertension, listening to Bach’s fugues is very effective, and Mendelssohn’s wedding March is good not only for newlyweds, but also for people with heart disease. Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony is also suitable for cores. Music therapists recommend Mendelssohn’s “Spring song” or Gershwin’s “an American in Paris” as a cure for migraines. Mozart’s music has a universal effect – and all experts agree on this. It has a truly magical effect: for colds and headaches, depression and mental stress. Moreover, the effect of the music of the great Austrian extends not only to people, but also to Pets and even inanimate objects. For example, in Europe, it was found that cows who regularly listened to Mozart’s works gave more milk, and the Japanese believe that Mozart makes bread more lush, and rice vodka sake-more fragrant.
