Music Therapy

Music Therapy

Many cultural traditions use music to create altered states of mind and awareness. Scientific studies have clarified that music influences and affects the cranial nerves in humans, and it also has been proposed that music facilitates neurogenesis, the process by which new neurons are formed in the brain. Drumming and chanting can promote relaxation and states of calm and mental clarity.

We perform music from many cultural traditions in order to help people focus the mind, explore their inner self and transcend their physical reality. This is possible due to the structure of the brain and how music is strongly linked to our survival and language. When sound reaches our auditory cortex, it impacts directly on the older part of the brain, the amygdala and the mammalian brain, directly influencing the autonomic nervous system, our breathing, our heart rate and our emotions. With this knowledge, we can use music to shift states when we need to.

The correct music applied at the right time can alleviate depression, high blood pressure and stress. The right music can release emotion that cannot find expression, therefore holding us back from a wholesome and fulfilled life. Certain hospitals around the world now use music therapy on cancer patients. They have found that when cancer patients sing and play instruments together, their immune function improves.

Who will benefit from our music?

Music Therapists - Therapists can easily become overwhelmed when faced with finding the right music for everyone. We perform and record sacred world music that spans western and eastern cultural and religious traditions to make it easier for you.

Personal Wellness - Healthy eating, regular exercise and enough sleep is essential for any self-care regime. Have you ever considered adding transcendental and / or meditation musicĀ to your wellness routine? The health benefits you can experience if you set aside a few minutes a day to listen to music that elevates you to a higher plane includes reduced anxiety, better sleep and improved concentration. The Ancient Greeks and Chinese used to prescribe music as medicine, Pythagoras in particular, would prescribe music for sleep and music for waking up. Lifestyle music will become the norm in the future as science gradually unpacks this phenomenon.

Alternative and Integrative Health Practitioners - We perform music that is enjoyable, for holistic health care with no side effects. The cultural traditions our music is derived from, allows for the application of techniques thatĀ  include music-facilitated breathwork, meditation, and mantra.

Psychotherapy/coaching and mental wellness - we facilitate Theta healing, a process of entrainment, where the music reduces brainwaves to around 7 hertz, the consciousness we reach just before falling sleep. In this lucid state, we are highly receptive to self-talk and spontaneous healing.
