Music Scientifically Proven to Help You Sleep
Who doesn’t love music? It has the power to energize or soothe and has been long been regarded as a powerful means of self-expression. We’ve been musical beings for a very long time – the earliest known musical instrument was made of bone and dates back over 40,000 years.
What we’re unsure of is where our musical appreciation comes from in the first place. Since the beginning of recorded history, renowned cultures such as the Greek and the Egyptians have been known to regard music as a means of healing the mind and the body.
In today’s society, we no longer integrate sacred rites or elaborate rituals with, but we are still using it to heal – musical therapy in the 21st century has been shown to alleviate the symptoms of a wide range of disorders and ailments, including everything from schizophrenia to heart disease.
But what role does music play when it comes to improving sleep loss issues?
A new online platform called Genote was recently launched and has been clinically tested to help treat some of the most common sleep disorders and problems, such as insomnia, anxiety, and more.
Genote has been quoted as being “dedicated to studying, researching and promoting innovative technologies for the application of all rigorous scientific findings in the correlation between music and health.”
The online platform is made up of a library of streaming music that is tailored to its audience, which ranges from children to the elderly, and is a result of over 20 years of sleep and music research. This library is called Health Music, and it was developed and curated by a team of musicians, health professionals, scientists, and sound engineers. This team worked with medical and scientific institutes from all over the world to research and create a musical platform that delivers itself to people in an easy to use online application. Health Music includes selections from composers of the Early Music age, all the way to the contemporary era, including Jazz, Far East, and Middle Eastern artists.
You might be asking what makes this online musical platform different than white noise or a more generic online music platform when it comes to soothing people to sleep. Genote is different for several reasons:
- Music Selection: Genote has done numerous studies in controlled environments that show them what type of music triggers (and improves) certain psychophysiological functions.
- Sound Quality: Genote puts each piece of music that they include in their library through a rigorous process to ensure that the caliber of sound engineering of the streaming service not only meets but beats musical industry standards.
- Measurable Results: The Genote online platform allows users to make sure that their sleep and health issues are being addressed by giving them a way to measure the results they have from integrating music therapy into their daily lives.
The hope of the Genote team is that people can benefit not just from the healing power of music, but be able to measure the results through their platform. They believe that music can greatly change not only the world’s health but also the lives of those that listen in – Genote wants to introduce music therapy into the mainstream.
