When to Use Music and Sounds for Stress Relief

Who hasn’t felt stressed? Our bodies are designed to feel stress and react to it, but it can be really annoying when stress insists on staying and keeps us from doing everything in peace. So, there are many ways to get out of that state of mind! You can try going to the gym, attending to a yoga class and even enjoying a relax massage in Chicago. You should also know that relaxing music restores harmony between mind and body. In recent decades, researchers have discovered that music is related to stress reduction and relaxation induction.

Relaxing music during your massage is key! Adding some tunes can reduce your stress and anxiety. So, music mixed with the massage gives you such a pleasant experience!

But, How Does Relaxing Music Relieve Stress?

Music connects with the nervous system and the limbic system, where your feelings and emotions are. Listening to relaxing music can switch the stress response to “off” and help your mind and emotions recover from stress faster.

Naturalistic sounds, such as the ebb and flow of the ocean tide or leaves rustling in the wind promote relaxation. That’s why it is really common for massage centers in Chicago to put on relaxing music during a massage. Some research points that light jazz, classical music, Indian stringed-instruments, rain, wind, and other nature sounds are effective stress reducers.

When to Put On your Music

Of course that while you’re receiving your massage. But you could also listen to relaxing music early in the morning while you’re getting ready for your day, during a commute, while doing chores, during a significant life changing, while eating, while on deadline (relaxing music is known to improve concentration) and when you’re ready to go to bed.

If you are looking for something to lower your stress levels during certain activities or to help you feel more relaxed overall, give music a chance. Relaxation music and sounds help alleviate anxiety and kickstart the feeling of peace. Just enjoy!
