How does it work?
Healing music has been shown to have healing effects: it relaxes the heart, reduces tension, and increases the secretion of endorphins, a natural sedative.
Listening to healing music for a while each day affects our emotions in a very positive way, which are related to illnesses when they are negative and recurrent. The more sensitive the person has, the easier it is for them to feel the extent to which this healing therapy favors them.
