Music actually make you less nervous. For

Music Effect on the Human Body Music has been around since the origin of humankind and it has brought joy ever since. Starting
with rocks, sticks, people singing and ending with modern instruments
and computer programs that create new sounds. Step by step it has become
more elaborated, as well as the instruments use to perform. Now music
has more to offer other than fun and entertainment. Music affects the
human body positively by changing mood, having good impact on the brain
and relieving pain. Listening to
different type of music can vary your mood. If you listen to Blues and
Reggae, it can actually make you less nervous. For example: if your
heart is beating fast or you are angry at something, hearing Blues or
Reggae can lower down your heart rate. This type of music is known for
being relaxing. Another example is Rock and Classical music because it
can change your mood to a better one. Classical music can increase your
brain power and make you more productive. Meanwhile listening to an old
Classic Rock song can bring good memories, increasing your energy. A
research made in the Iowa State University shows that Heavy Metal could
give anti-social feelings but other studies say it helps people deal
with stressful situations. Country music has been linked to cause
depression and even suicide because of the sad lyrics it tends to have.
On the other hand, Broadway music tends to be inspiring. It is the type
of music played in theater with the intention of leaving you wanting
more and with the urge to change the world. (Emily
Whelan, 2015) We know that music can be very powerful for different
types of activities. The ability to understand how music interacts with
the brain requires deep study and an ability to probe the mysteries of
the human mind. Music has the power to enhance some kinds of higher
brain functions such as: reading and literacy skills, spatial-temporal
reasoning, mathematical abilities, emotional intelligence, and recall of
autobiographical and episodic information. (Emedexpert, 2009) That is
why when we listen to music the brain releases dopamine, a
neurotransmitter, which makes people feel happy. Research made by
Ashford University shows that “listening to music is associated with
increases in immunity-boosting antibodies and cells that protect against
bacteria and other invaders. Music has also proven to be effective
across a variety of treatment scenarios for conditions ranging from
premature birth to depression to Parkinson’s disease.” (Ashford
University, 2017) “Music is sound, and sound is connected to vibration.
Led by Dr. Lee Bartel, a music professor at the University of Toronto,
there are several researchers searching whether vibration absorbed
through the body through the body can help ease the symptoms produced by
Parkinson’s, fibromyalgia and depression. This therapy is known as
vibroacustic, it consists of low frequency sound similar to a low rumble
to produce vibration that is applied directly to the body. During the
therapy, the patient lies on a mat, bed or sits on a chair embedded with
speakers that transmit vibrations at some specific frequencies that can
be heard and felt, according to Dr. Lee Bartel. In 2009, researchers
led by Lauren K. King of the Sun Life Financial Movement Disorders
Research and Rehabilitation Center at Wilfrid Laurier University, in
Waterloo, Ontario, found that short- term used of vibroacustic therapy
with Parkinson disease patients led to improvements in symptoms,
including less rigidity and better walking speed with bigger steps and
reduced tremors. In that study, the
scientists exposed 40 Parkinson’s disease patients to low frequency
30-hertz vibration for one minute, followed by one-minute break. They
then alternated the two for a total of 10 minutes. The researchers are
now planning a long-term study of the use of vibroacustic therapy with
Parkinson’s patients, as part of a new partnership with the University
of Toronto’s Music and Health Research Collaboration, which brings
together scientist from around the world who are studying music’s effect
on health.” (Novotney, 2013) In conclusion, music is more than
entertainment. It is a modern tool for psychology and medicine. People
depend on it to survive and to past time. With just a single tune it has
the power to change your emotions and mood. In some cases, it can be
used as a powerful tool for your brain and for learning methods. Who
would have thought that music could help discover many treatments for
many diseases and be used as a therapy method. It can be proven that
music does have a good effect on the human body
