Mental Tip – CLASSICAL MUSIC & YOUR HEALTH

The Healing Properties of Classical Music

Did you know that listening to classical music can improve your overall health and well-being?

In December 2007, a German-born surgeon – Dr. Claudius Conrad – co-published a research article in the Critical Care Medicine Journal titled, “Overture for growth hormone: Requiem for interleukin-6?” This research article revealed the results of a study he conducted on ten (10) patients in intensive care following their respective surgeries. Half of the patients were given Mozart’s piano sonatas to listen to as background music and the other half heard no music at all.

The study revealed that the patients who listened to the classical music experienced reduced blood pressure and heart rates, required less pain medication and healed faster.

The health benefits of Classical Music are not limited to surgical patients but can be realized at any age as explained in the article, The Best Classical Music for Health Relaxation and Healing
