Music, one of life’s greatest pleasures, has power – the power to ignite a sprint on the treadmill, bring a tear to the eye or quiet a racing mind. Music also has the power to help heal, which is why I often use it as a relaxation aid for my patients, while they are getting acupuncture. By playing music that pulses at about 60 beats per minute, my patients can get a well-deserved break from the daily stress merry-go-round and start to stimulate their body’s own healing response, more deeply and in less time than it might take them to achieve such states on their own.

Perhaps most important is that massage helps prevent the injuries that will set you back.
