It turns out that playing the harmonica can be a great therapy for COPD patients. The repeated pattern of breathing in and out through the instrument can help patients to become aware of their breathing patterns.
Sometimes your anxieties can gnaw at you like a pebble in your shoe. Then the next thing you know they are keeping you awake at night. One possible solution to insomnia is to put together a musical playlist that will work on your mind and body like your own personal lullaby.
Whether we using music as a source of joy and inspiration, a medicine for healing deep wounds, a therapy for physical rehabilitation, or a lifeline for surviving trauma and loss, music is undeniably one of mankind's greatest healing modalities.
I find playing music to be one of my strongest personal therapies, not only from the state of being I can achieve while playing, but also from the energetic balancing and mood-enhancing effect on my mind, body and spirit throughout the day.
I believe music is an essential ingredient for the cultivation of a more evolved global community and for the development of more intelligent, adaptable, creative and compassionate generations to come.
