Our next meet we will be covering chapter three and four. Ray will be facilitating the discussion.
Synopsis Since 1991, Dr. Mitchell Gaynor has been achieving remarkable results by integrating music, vocalization, breathing, and meditation techniques in his work with patients. InThe Healing Power of Sound,he presents his sound-based techniques for self-healing-techniques that anyone can use, whether faced with a life-threatening disease or simply seeking relief from the stresses of daily life. Numerous studies have demonstrated the health benefits of music: it can lower blood pressure and heart and respiratory rates; reduce cardiac complications; increase the immune response; and boost our natural opiates. Gaynor shows how, when integrated as part of a mind-body-spirit approach to wellness, music can play a significant part in maintaining a healthy lifestyle or in healing serious disease.The Healing Power of Soundincludes twelve exercises involving breathing, meditation, and "toning"-using pure vocal sound to resolve tension, release emotion, and spur the healing process-that can be used by anyone to improve health and quality of life.
