There wasn’t a name for how music cares for us physiologically — actually minds us in a safe, effective and useful way — so we gave it one: Music Care.
Music Care is the use of specific music — music that YOU love — to produce a desired emotional, mental or even physical result. That result could be calming you after a stressful day, firing you up at a ball game, helping you focus or study to prepare for an exam, or transforming “negative” emotions into “positive” ones. Good example: music in church can help you to feel reverent or peaceful, happy or connected.
Physiologically, human beings respond to sound without effort or thought. That is, when we hear sound, the vibrational energy of the sound is converted to electrical impulses in our brains, which then trigger the release all sorts of brain chemistry, such as hormones and neurotransmitters. This causes our emotions to change. Just two examples: an “adrenalin rush” can result from certain kinds of music; other kinds of music predictably lower blood pressure.
If you know that, and then pay attention to how the music and sound around you is making you feel, you will have unlocked your own powerful skill to care for yourself using music: Music Care.
