A headache is one of the most intolerable discomforts. If you have already tried all kinds of treatments, it may be time to try alternative therapy. Through a guided or individual relaxation exercise, the pain may not be controlled but will at least diminish the intense feeling of pain. It is a natural remedy based on a relaxation to the sound of soothing music.
Scientific data seems to confirm that music therapy may be an effective remedy against physical pain. A recent study by Yale University states that certain physical ailments can be offset with flowing melodies and rhythms that can help distract us from the pain.
The answer is in the concentration that involves placing the attention and the senses in the music, internalizing it completely and not seeing it as a simple musical complement or as background music.
By using an exercise in music therapy one could relieve headaches of short duration but may also aid chronic pain treatments for such ailments such as arthritis and fibromyalgia, making them more bearable since the gentle stimuli caused by the soothing melodies eases the pain.
