Brain Wave Music Therapy

Most people understand the basics of how music can be used to treat various health and wellness concerns, particularly those where the mind is at the center of the issue. Disorders like chronic stress or anxiety, depression and insomnia can be particularly affected by the use of music, but what research has shown is that the benefits of using the brain’s own music can make great strides in reducing the impact of these wellness concerns.

Brain wave music therapy is the process of recording one’s brain waves, translating them into individual musical sequences and using the finished song to touch those areas of the brain that may be out of sync, causing stress, anxiety and more. This neurofeedback consists of different rhythms that can be used to calm or sedate a person, or promote alertness and focus. These rhythms, much like the drumming of a Djembe or the rhythms in different music genres, are created by the brain and then recognized during playback of the music. Fast brain waves can help activate focus in the brain, helping those who struggle with the difficulties of ADD/ADHD, while the slower rhythms can calm and soothe. This therapy can be even more effective than music therapy largely due to the brain’s ability to recognize its own sounds, patterns and tones over music compositions or even the brain waves of other people.

When it comes to alternative methods to address stress, anxiety or other mental health concerns, one of the least invasive methods is to simply use music to provide an outlet for those disorders, while synching the brain with a healthier rhythm. Through the use of brain wave music therapy, this practice is able to individually target and help heal the person experiencing these issues, helping to promote mind and body wellness through the unique rhythms we all possess in our minds.
