Music with Surgery:  Why?

Why would you want music during surgery? As I travel the country talking with people about the importance of music during surgery, there is one question that arises over and over. The question is a good one: why would you want music during surgery if you're going to be asleep? Very logical question and luckily, the answer is very logical too.

For thousands of years humans have known that music soothes, calms and comforts them. In ancient time it was drumming and chanting. In the 21st century it's iPods and wireless headphones. Everyone had their favorite music and for them, that is what will work best during surgery. The fact is that once you're under anesthesia, only your subconscious mind will be responding to the slow steady pulse of the music.

Music during surgery is not about entertainment; it is not about soothing a person or even comforting them. The whole point of using music during surgery is to relax the body so that less anesthesia is needed. Secondarily, when you have music coming through headphones, the music enters the brain through the eighth cranial nerve and entrains or synchronizes the heartbeat and breathing with the tempo of the music. The more relaxed the body, mind, and spirit can be, the less anesthesia a person will need in order to be effectively anesthetized.

For For this reason, you want to choose music with the tempo of the healthy resting heartbeat. You also want to choose music that is purely instrumental, i.e., nothing with lyrics. The third and final reason to use music through head-phones during surgery is to block out comments and conversation of the medical staff that might be negative or pessimistic and influence you subconsciously. Many people do not have a lot of advance notice that they need surgery and do not have time to select the ideal music.

For that reason, I have put together the music that is proven to have the best results on the subconscious mind and body; music that has a slow, steady tempo and is purely instrumental. This music can be ordered and downloaded from http://www.HealingMusicEnterprises.com/surgical_headphones
