About Our Music Therapy & Nature Sound Videos:
We offer a wide variety of videos for relaxation, meditation, deep sleep, reducing stress, white noise, sounds of nature (i.e. birds, wildlife, thunderstorms, ocean waves, etc.) studying, working out, and more.
It can be easier to fall asleep – or to sleep better – when listening to “white noise” such as the sounds of a waterfall, rain and thunder sounds, birds chirping, crickets, and other sounds of nature that’s relaxing to listen to. The same applies to studying, reading, or just resting. It’s nice to have white noise in the background, or the subtle sounds of nature.
One of the most popular types of videos for reducing stress and for promoting relaxation is nature sounds like gentle (or heavy) rainfall as well as sounds of thunder. For decades there have been CDs and DVDs that feature these nature sounds for relaxing, and the visuals are an additional treat.
Here on the CBOS network, we have put together a series of nature and music therapy videos for your entertainment and relaxation purposes.
Some videos feature classical music, space themed music, jazz music, and other popular instrumental music (even Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Chopin, etc.) with beautiful scenes of nature.
Being able to relax is important for your spirit, soul, and body.
“Music therapy is an evidence-based clinical use of musical interventions to improve clients’ quality of life. Music therapists use music and its many facets— physical, emotional, mental, social, aesthetic, and spiritual— to help clients improve their health in cognitive, motor, emotional, communicative, social, sensory, and educational domains by using both active and receptive music experiences. These experiences include improvisation, re-creation, composition, receptive methods, and discussion of music.
Some common music therapy practices include developmental work (communication, motor skills, etc.) with individuals with special needs, songwriting and listening in reminiscence, orientation work with the elderly, processing and relaxation work, and rhythmic entrainment for physical rehabilitation in stroke victims. Music therapy is used in some medical hospitals, cancer centers, schools, alcohol and drug recovery programs, psychiatric hospitals, and correctional facilities.
There is a wide qualitative and quantitative research literature base for music therapy. Music therapy is distinctive from Musopathy, which relies on a more generic and non-cultural approach based on neural, physical, and other responses to the fundamental aspects of sound.
Evidence suggests that music therapy is beneficial for all individuals, both physically and mentally. Benefits of music therapy include improved heart rate, reduced anxiety, stimulation of the brain, and improved learning. Music therapists use their techniques to help their patients in many areas, ranging from stress relief before and after surgeries to neuropathologies such as Alzheimer’s disease. One study found that children who listened to music while having an IV inserted into their arms showed less distress and felt less pain than the children who did not listen to music while having an IV inserted.
Studies on patients diagnosed with mental disorders such as anxiety, depression, and schizophrenia have shown a visible improvement in their mental health after music therapy.
Music has played an important role in the research of dealing with autism, mainly in diagnosis, therapy, and behavioral abilities according to a scientific article written by Thenille Braun Janzen and Michael H. Thaut. This article concluded that music can help autistic patients hone their motor and attention skills as well as healthy neurodevelopment of socio-communication and interaction skills. Music therapy also resulted in positive improvement in selective attention, speech production, and language processing and acquisition in autistic patients.
Music therapy has been proven to be of beneficial use to older adults all over the world. Dr. Hanne Mette Ridder, a musical therapy expert from Denmark, studied the importance of the roles of musical therapists and caregivers on the mental well-being of patients suffering from dementia. The use of musical interaction has been proven as a key factor in many countries for the improvement of older adults overall health. According to Karen Stuart, South Africa has poor quality services provided by hospital care facilities to elders dealing with dementia, therefore she discovered singing to be an effective method for improving patients well-being. The playing of classical music or therapeutic singing resulted in: enjoyment, awareness, and engagement.”
