Overview

The evidence is in: music is not just entertainment - it is medicine. Sub-titled Using the Power of Music to Heal the Body, Strengthen the Mind and Unlock the Creative Spirit, this book unifies medicine, Eastern wisdom and the new science of sonic healing.

The Mozart Effect offers dramatic accounts of how doctors and others use music to deal with everything from anxiety to cancer, high blood pressure, chronic pain, and even mental illness. For example, the director of a Baltimore hospital's coronary care unit found that half an hour of classical music produces the same effect as 10 milligrams of Valium. And students who sing or play an instrument score up to 51 points higher on SATs than the national average.

Drawing on the personal experiences and uplifting stories of ordinary men and women. Campbell shows us how to put the healing power of music into action. And he recommends specific, easy-to-follow exercises to help you raise your spatial IQ, sound away pain, boost creativity, and make the spirit sing.
