Ambient Music Therapy

You hardly need a news report to tell you about the healing power of music. Many studies over the years have confirmed our own personal experiences: music can positively affect our moods. Like purposely turning your mouth into a smile, you can immediately feel happier, more inspired and even relaxed when you listen to your favorite songs.
Any music will do, but doctors and healing professionals often recommend ambient music therapy for therapeutic purposes. Can you just imagine getting this advice? “Listen to these two CDs, and then call me in the morning!”

While there is a group of new age musicians that call themselves “Ambient Music Therapy,” you can also select your own favorite ambient music songs for therapeutic purposes. Visit a site like for alternative music tracks, or search for free new age music online.
At YouTube, you’ll find ambient music videos from many new age music artists – myself included! Visit my channel and listen to a range of sounds. Ambient, new age, world music … pick your favorite and chill out!

The therapeutic qualities of music have been recognized since time of Plato and Aristotle! According to this article:
“Music therapy, according to the American Music Therapy Association (AMTA), is a well-established health profession similar to occupational therapy and physical therapy, that uses music to therapeutically address physical, psychological, cognitive, behavioral and social functioning.”
Ambient music therapy can be used in many settings. Some people put on the music to help them relax and fall asleep. You might hear it during a massage or at a yoga class. Therapists often recommend listening to new age music artists during meditation and deep breathing exercises. Even fussy babies often fall asleep with ambient music therapy!

Ambient music also has been used by medical doctors as a holistic healing intervention. Studies confirm the positive impact of music in reducing pain, anxiety, and muscle tension levels of patients admitted for an emergent medical condition.
In fact, during WWII, treating doctors and nurses would often play music to help patients suffering from both physical and mental traumas. Because music therapy is non-invasive and non-pharmaceutical, its a safe treatment for patients. There are no risks associated with surgery, and no side effects from drugs.
“The sounds, vibrations, and rhythms of music create a whole-brain, and even a whole-body experience that is effective in treating neurologic disorders as well as physical disorders… music helps stimulate the brain to be more active in sending electrical messages to the muscles and limbs in people with brain injuries and developmental disorders.”
If you are going to self-medicate, then ambient music therapy should be your “drug” of choice!

Why not go and download some ambient music today? Doctors orders!
