Healing Power of Music

By David Goe

Check out this interesting report I came across yesterday about the healing power of music. There is new evidence that suggests that music as a form of medicine might actually be scientifically true. According to the study, music may have a positive affect on the body in the areas of pain management and relaxation, and in some instances may be more effective than prescription drugs. Listening to music may also help reduce stress levels, help with anxiety, and strengthen your immune system.  

From a personal perspective, I think music certainly helps me with stress and anxiety. I know for a fact that listening to or playing music after a stressful day helps calm me down. The Arctic Monkeys are one of my all time favorite bands. I love their music, the lyrics, attitude, and style. Now I don't know if my immune system improves, but listening to their music always makes me feel better.

In fact, my mood has improved substantially just now after finding their full Coachella 2012 performance online. I was at this show last year and have nothing but positive memories about it. Oh yeah!
