I read something earlier that reminded of our post here on the forum...Music is therapeutic, ive always thought so. I love listening to music...
1) When we listen to music our brain releases dopmaine which is a feel good chemical essential for the healthy functioning of the central nervous system; it has effects on emotion, perception and movement.
2) Music is proven to physiologically affect heart rate, breathing and pulse rate resulting in physical chills of pleasure. A study was undertaken by Dr Mike Miller of Baltimore, who measured the effects of music on the cardiovascular system by measuring blood vessel size before, during and after music playing. When a patient liked the music playing, the blood vessels relaxed and opened up.
Music physically heals – yes really. Fabien Maman, a musician and acupuncturist, devised the Tama-Do Academy based on his extensive research that showed that human blood cells respond to sound frequencies by changing color and shape. His findings demonstrate sick or rogue cells can be healed or harmonized with sound

Or fall asleep, wake feeling rested and rejuvenated.

Even if you can't carry a tune or play an instrument, you can probably reel off a list of songs that evoke happy memories and raise your spirits. Surgeons have long played their favorite music to relieve stress in the operating room, and extending music to patients has been linked to improved surgical outcomes. In the past few decades, music therapy has played an increasing role in all facets of healing.
It's a dirty business, but making sure your little one's bum stays clean and dry is crucial to keeping her comfortable and avoiding diaper rash. Expect to become a diaper-slinging pro, since newborns typically soil ten or more diapers a day. That's more than 300 changes in the first month. (But who's counting ...
You are right kristaball, I wish hospitals would take more thought for more holistic treatment of patients, a positive lifting of the spirits would heal all patients so much quicker. Hospitals in the UK have become so drab, a happier staff may help too lol
