Study Finds Therapeutic Techniques May Help Alleviate Pain in Hospital Patients | Better Health Research

"According to a new study published in the Journal of Patient Safety, physicians who treat their patients with non-drug techniques may effectively stop their discomfort.'
"Treatments such as relaxation response, acupuncture, acupressure, massage, music and aromatherapy and reflexology were administered to 1,837 caridiovascular, medical, surgical, orthopedic, spin, rehabilitation, oncology and women’s health patients at Abbott Northwestern.'
"It was found that a high number of patients experienced up to 50 percent less pain..." Donna Parker, Better Health Research, March10, 2010

Good day! I've been looking for articles about music being used as a form of therapy. Well, your blog is about reflexology, but I found this post. Thanks for sharing the information! Actually, I'm looking for those articles because I want to know how music does the healing. According to my Thetahealing instructor, a certain frequency helps soothe the mind, body, and soul. These waves are called the Theta waves. Well, those are the only things I know for now. I've been interested in sound used as therapy ever since I've attended a Thetahealing session.
