Listening to music works in different areas of the brain.
Everybody loves Music
I’m a huge fan of music and use it a lot while working, but I had no idea at all about how it really affects our daily lives. Music is such a big part of our lives, I thought it would be a great idea to have a look at some of the ways how Music affects our lives.
- Pain relief Music helps to reduce both the sensation/distress of both chronic and postoperative ache.
- Reducing blood pressure. According to research announced at the American Society of Hypertension meeting in N.O., just listening to half an hour of Celtic, classical and/or raga music every day may somehow reduce HBP(high blood pressure).
- Speeds Post-Stroke Recovery A regular piece of anyone’s favorite pop tune, classical song or a little bit of jazz can improve recovery from weakening strokes, according to the most recent research.
- Chronic headaches & migraine “antidote”. Music can help migraine/headache sufferers decrease the intensity of the headaches
Music as therapy

Music Therapy has been used for centuries it has been used as a way to recover energy, improve the state of mind(mood), and even help the body alleviate.
Why is music important
Music-making is part of what makes humans human. Every culture has made music and is still making music today. Not only that, every past culture has made music too.
Music gets under your skin. It creates strong feelings. And it creates strong memories. if you don’t believe me check out this video of a baby’s reaction to music.
I bet you if you took the time to think, you’d probably get those memories as to when you were a child when your mom used to sing to you or maybe when you listen to one of those songs you haven’t head in a while and say: “Oh my God!! I remember that song!!” or when you say that’s my jam!!!”.
Music is a language. It is a language for all humans. It is a language that is there when normal language is of little use.
