Does Relaxation Music reduce Stress?

Stress has been linked to many serious and devastating problems that affect us individually and as a society. The serious consequences of stress can be psychological, physical, behavioral and vocational in nature. For example, some of the psychological consequences of stress are anxiety, boredom, low self esteem, forgetfulness, depression, anger, apathy and worry.
Some physical consequences of stress are headaches, diabetes, fatigue, chest and back pain, hypertension and ulcers. Behavioral consequences of stress can be overeating, loss of appetite, smoking, insomnia, alcohol and drug abuse, sleep problems, emotional outbursts and violence and aggression. Some vocational or work related consequences of stress are absenteeism, accident, reduced productivity, job turnover, poor work relations and low morale.
Enhanced Healing is now introducing Dr. Henshaw's relaxation music to the public as an effective, efficient and safe solution for stress relief. Dr. Henshaw's relaxation music was originally created from his practice of hypnosis and hypnotherapy and has been used in a variety of mental health, substance abuse and military settings through out the country and world for stress relief and stress management.
While his relaxation music, meditation music and sleep music has been very effective in clinically oriented settings, Dr. Henshaw believes that his music's best application is to the general public, to everyone who needs assistance in reducing and managing the stress of daily life. Dr. Henshaw believes that if a person can learn how to experience a relaxed state and on a more consistent basis throughout the week that he will nessarily reduce the harmful consequences that stress could have in his life.
Dr. Henshsaw believes further that it is the design of his relaxation music that causes the beneficial effect for the listener. First, there is the structure of the musical composition. Dr. Henshaw believes that having long, sustained chords or voices, approximately 12 to 15 seconds in duration, with slow transitions between the chords works best. Such a structure causes the body and mind to slow down and begin to relax and as and eventually attain a deep state of relaxation.
The second component of his relaxation music is the binaural audio tones that have been mixed into the music. The binaural beats or tones, through a process referred to as “entrainment” or “frequency following,” gently directs the body to make more of the brain wave frequencies necessary for either deep relaxation or sleep. The recordings for deep relaxation contain binaural audio tones within the theta range while the recordings for sleep contains binaural audio tones within the delta range.
Listening to Dr. Henshaw's relaxation music helps to relieve stress almost immediately. With the repeated, continuous use of Dr. Henshaw's relaxation music he believes that the beneficial effects can be profound and are cumulative over time. As research indicates, some of the measurable effects on the body of using relaxation music are lowering blood pressure, regulating heart rate and breathing. Some of the psychological effects of using relaxation music are feeling calmer and serene, more peaceful and much more at ease.
Dr. Henshaw earned his doctoral degree in Human Development and Counseling from Boston University. Dr. Henshaw currently works in a Drug Rehab program in the Miami area and has a private counseling practice. In addition to his counseling education and experience, Dr. Henshaw is also a musician with 11 years of piano training.
