Music Health Benefits
5 ways it helps us heal!

Music health benefits include relaxation of body, mind and spirit, as well as it's ability to help us escape everyday, temporarily forgetting problems or issues that are stressful in  life. 

Throughout history, music has been shown to help treat mental and emotional conditions, making it one of the most effective treatments, and one of the most cost effective alternative (like acupuncture, acupressure, massage therapy, or chiropractic, etc.) treatments. 

Research shows that listening to or playing music is a growing treatment in hospitals, nursing homes, rehab centers, hospice facilities, and clinics, helping reduce anxiety, depression, and chronic pain.

5 Music Health Benefits for Healing

  1. Physical benefits - allowing our muscles to relax, calming a fast heart rate, reducing cortisol levels,  lowering blood pressure, easing head and body aches and pains, encouraging deep breathing and relaxation of muscles
  2. Mental health benefits - lowering anxiety levels, reducing depression, increasing positive thought processes, self-worth, and encouraging empathy.
  3. Improves social connections - allowing a feeling of unity in times of war, national or world-wide emergency, or local panic or emergent issues, and, and encouraging us to reconnect with our identity and interests.
  4. Encourages spiritual health - helping us to grow in our spiritual journey, which improves our mental, physical and social outlooks on life and the future
  5. Improves emotional health - helping us feel better about ourselves, improving self-esteem and self-worth, helping us have an increase in self confidence, if only temporarily 

There are many therapists that are also certified music clinicians, that have been trained in using music to therapeutically treat patients in hospitals, children's hospitals, mental health facilities, nursing homes, and  clinics all over the world.

The healing properties of music actually affects us on a molecular level, because music stimulates just about every area of the brain, offering great benefits, like:

1. Allowing natural body rhythms to work together (like breathes and heartbeat), helping us to emotionally calm down, helping feelings of stress to lower or disappear.

2. Encouraging less cortisol production, which is associated with anxiety.

3. Helping us produce more dopamine - the "feel good" neurochemical that helps us feel happy and calm.

About Me

A few things about me and the creation of Massage Education Guide....

After 20 years of practicing massage, I decided to create an online resource for those who want to learn about what to do after massage school....how to build a business from scratch, how to create a website that works for your business, how to create social media posts to engage clients, how to create Facebook Ads, effective SEO practices, and so much more.

I have spent thousands of dollars on advertising my business in newspapers, only to get a few clients, that may or may not return and become a regular customer, and it almost drained me financially.

Finding a way to build my business online for free became my only goal, and I spent many hours studying how folks grow a business with little-to-no money through social media.

Now, because of all I went through to grow my business, I teach  the benefits of building an online space, easy SEO and social media tips, and how sales funnels are now the way to make an additional online income, and make life so much better!

What's my passion? Massage therapy always and forever is my love, but helping people learn how to grow an online business is a very close second!

So, let's build your business, your dream, and grow together!
