Music is Magic – from Parkinson’s to Longevity

Is there anybody out there who doesn’t like music of any kind?    I don’t think so.   AND – that’s a good thing.

Cause I’ve just discovered that my shower singing, going to live music events and dancing to my favourite music can make me healthier and happier.

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind,
flight to the imagination and life to everything.”

                                                                                                                            ― Plato

Scientific studies have shown an increase in life expectancy for people who attend live musical events.  Apparently, just 20 minutes at a live gig can increase feelings of well being by 21 percent. Music reduces pain, helps with sleep, curbs the appetite and reduces depression.

BUT – Seeing is believing.  I came across a video of the absolute magic of music with severe Parkison’s patients.   You’ll have to see it to believe it.   You can click here or on the image below.

How powerful to actually see these people enjoy the music and allow it to free up the body.  If you are intrigued to discover further benefits of music, below are a couple of links to check out:
