Examples of Music Therapy Healing Techniques
Sound/music is vibration that can affect change in our bodies at a cellular level. Every vibration that goes through us affects us. The vibration of sound/music incites healing by putting back in tune the vibrations making us unwell.
There are some simple, yet effective ways to use music to treat/heal common ailments.
If you suffer from sinus problems try humming your favorite songs or chant the sound "om". Chanting and humming both create sound vibrations which encourage air to move back and forth between sinus and nasal passages. It also improves the output of nitric oxide, an indicator of healthy sinus function. The air movement opens Ostia that connect the nose to sinuses allowing the sinuses to drain properly. Hum several times a day for improved sinus health.

Snoring and Sleep Apnea
If you need a more healthy/restful sleep learn to play the didgeridoo. Playing the didgeridoo strengthens the muscles in the upper airway (which collapse and cause snoring or breathing to stop) through breathing techniques used to play the instrument.
High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is a sign that the heart is straining to pump blood through the body. This can cause weakening of heart muscle and lead to heart attack or stroke.Many studies have proven that listening to music at least 30 minutes a day (especially slow, classical, Celtic, Indian, and most significant results from harp music) decreases blood pressure and has been known to have the same relaxing effect as 10 mg of Valium. Slow music relaxes a person by slowing their breathing and heartbeat as well as enhancing cognitive functions such as memory, concentration and reasoning skills, and boost immune system.
Listening to and making your own music daily can have a positive impact on your physical health and emotional well being.
