A musician, composer, recording artist, and teacher for more than 30 years, David Ison's music has been used by hospitals, healthcare practitioners, and individuals worldwide. His music has been played for patients in such esteemed health centers as Bethesda Naval Hospital, Scripps Center of Integrative Medicine, and Children's Hospital in San Diego. A three-year study by the National Institutes of Health found that Ison's music effectively induces the relaxation response, and relieves many symptoms of anxiety and stress. The "Ison Method" resulted from David Ison's own healing experience after a serious car accident left him unable to walk. Not wanting to rely on surgery and medication, he drew upon his expertise as a musician, longtime meditator, and an energy practitioner to explore how sound, breath, and meditation could help him heal, and eventually enjoyed a full recovery. Along the way he learned powerful lessons about how to tap into his own life force energy, sometimes referred to asqiorprana, to facilitate healing on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. He later refined these techniques into a unique program of transformational healing music with special meditation, breathing, and listening techniques that can help anyone connect to their own wellspring of healing potential and unlock the life-force within. David continues to explore the effectiveness of sound and music, creating new compositions with his longtime collaborator Paul Wegmann. David regularly lectures and conducts training workshops on The Ison Method at conferences and medical centers around the country.

The concept for this irresistibly soothing musical recording was initially conceived of by David Ison as he was trying to find a way to heal himself after a serious automobile accident. After making a full recovery, which shocked his doctors, Ison perfected the musical innovations he had discovered and created this highly effective musical relaxation tool. Later the National Institutes of Health launched a three year study that proved that this music does indeed elicit the "relaxation response" in patients. Dr. George Patrick, the not retired Chief of Rehabilitation at the NIH now says that "Ison's music is the NIH music of choice." The first two tracks will introduce you to the concepts behind the recording, teach you how to use it, and also lead you through a guided process that will help you use your breath to release anxiety and tension. The third track is music-only. Simply listen in the background anytime to experience the powerful effects of this unique recording. After just a few minutes your breathing pattern will "lock onto" the music, and gently slow down. As your breath deepens and slows, you will be lead easily and naturally to states of deep, rejuvenation relaxation.
