- #568395This was known to people in our country. Most Kings had the Durbar and Darbar had many musicians to relieve the stress of the King. Traditional wisdom passed on from generation to generation also prescribed pregnant adies not to be around high noises, but to hear and relax with good music .
Dr .Mythili from Chennai had done research on music therapy and she is practising this o patients. I had seen a couple of video clips where she speaks about that.
Sri. Kaithapram Damodaran Namboothiri, who is a composer and music director to some Malyalam films, is a proponent of music therapy..
Each musical Raga has some particular attributes and can be helpful in curing particular health issues. Those who learn music are taught about the time a raga has to be sung and the useful effects of that Raaga.
Let us keep faith on ourselves and work sincerely, not leave everything to fate.

- #568505We might have read from our puranas that the child got information from the womb itself. In Prahalatha story we read the child prahlath learned the Nama of Narayana through Narada muni as told to Leelavathi, wife of Hiranyakshan. Similarly from Mahabharat we read the braking of Chakravyuha was learnt by Abhimanyu through Lord Krishna at the womb level. The puranas tells us the way to form wellness to our younger generations. Similarly the Music therapy is developed by Holy shri Ganapathi Sachchithananda Swamiji of Dattapeetham near Mysore,Karnataka. Reference can be get from the websites :

- #568537I think it has been a well known fact since ages that music has therapeutic properties. It is not a novel way, albeit it is not the conventional method either. I think ever since the concept of music was born, humans knew of its healing properties as well as its ability to affect us at a psychological level. We can't say that music therapy is seeing a revival now, because it simply never ever went away. There has never been a period when people stopped creating or listening to music.
Music can do many things. A lullaby helps a baby sleep. A war song helps the warriors get their adrenaline high. Music helps people get over grief, sadness, depression. Music is used to celebrate and express happiness. Music can help improve concentration. Music can be used for meditation and relaxation. There is a plethora of ways music can affect us.
I personally often use calm instrumental music for sleeping as well as while working. It is the perfect balm for stressed nerves.
