Research shows that guided imagery and music before, during and
after a surgical procedure may result in positive benefits:
• Helps patients prepare physically and mentally for surgery
• Empowers patients in their own health care
• Lowers use of drug therapies
• Reduces hospital stays
This music was written at exactly 50 beats per minute by Janalea
Hoffman to help slow body rhythms to decrease anxiety and pain.
Both Pre-Surgery CDs have identical music, only the covers are
choose the cover that you find the most comforting for your
wellness (Tulips or Rose)
A Personal Note from Janalea about
"When I started my private practice, I had a lot of referrals from 3
different medical doctors. They had patients who had used my 50 beats
a minute music to help lower blood pressure and saw significant results.
These skeptical doctors became believers and starting referring
patients to me for Music Therapy."
"Since I was specializing in music and wellness, a big part of my
practice was to help patients deal with their stress through
music/relaxation techniques instead of drugs. My personal interest in
meditation was a motivator for me to develop music that was specifically
designed for deep meditations. I also needed something that would work
quickly because a lot of my clients were not willing to commit to
meditation or relaxation practices every day. Trying to meditate at
home can be very frustrating with all the distractions and one can give
up from frustration."
"After experimenting with lots of classical music, I determined that
there was a big need to write music specifically to slow people down on
a physiological basis. Deep Daydreams was actually written while
visiting a state park in Southern Missouri where I heard a very slow
rhythmic waterfall that I found very grounding and hypnotic."
"The peace of this pure spring water and the unspoiled nature spot felt
healing to me and actually moved me to tears just from the purity. I
heard the music there and came home and put it on a CD! This CD has
been used for deep relaxation, to lower heart rate and blood pressure,
and also for individuals on the autistic spectrum who cannot handle a
lot of complex sound."
Your internal body rhythms- heart beat,
blood pressure, and breathing always try to harmonize with external rhythms.
Your heart near another's will find a mutual pace.
