Music, more than entertainment, has played an instrumental role in healing and harmonizingrepparttar mind, body and spirit. For thousands of years,repparttar 143376 Vedic culture has used sound and music for body and mind balancing, health enhancement, healing promotion and encouragement of heightened awareness. The Greek mathematician, Pythagoras theorized that music diminished and even eradicated negative energy and emotions. Modern studies explicitly show that specific sounds and music do in fact, have documented, measurable and multiple healing benefits. Today's medicine understands that all bodily functions, like breathing and pulse, work cyclically and rhythmically. It is these rhythms that are influenced and synchronized with certain music and sound patterns.

The most interesting of studies in music therapy is that of an experiment conducted years ago. The music experiment comparedrepparttar 143382 effects of classical music to rock and roll music on plant growth. Intriguingly,repparttar 143383 classical music helpedrepparttar 143384 plants to grow faster; whereasrepparttar 143385 rock music actually deterioratedrepparttar 143386 plant's growth.
