This therapy employs sound in an organized or rhythmic form to disentangle the stressed out nerves and brain, relaxing the mind-body as a whole. Certain sounds have telling effect upon the state of our brain. Most of the sounds heard in the world today are `dis-charging` sounds, draining the brain of its vital energy. Sound therapy is a method of beneficially recharging the cortex of the brain and distributing the latent energy throughout the nervous system. Usually, the effect of therapeutic sound upon a person is one of vitalizing, harmonizing and healing at almost every level of being. Sound therapy is one of the most preferred techniques for relieving negative effects of stress.Brain energy is a form of electricity, engendered by the central grey nuclei. These are like batteries constantly recharging the brain. The cells of the cortex are the ones which are most energy laden and are accumulated particularly in the zone of the high frequency. High frequency sound transmitted to the brain via the ear activates these cells and releases hitherto untapped energy. As a consequence the balance in body vibration is restored and one can feel relaxed, and lighter.Sound Therapy is simple in practice. It consists of listening to therapeutic sounds, on quality equipment, for at least three hours a day to a total of 100 to 200 hours. The therapist decides the length of time depending on the condition of patients.Sounds of NatureApart from these specially created sounds, we can access and utilize the natural sounds all around us. Nature has a vast repertoire of soothing and rhythmic sounds. We seem to overlook the sounds of ocean, breeze, rustling of leaves, bubbling sounds of a cascade and even the sound of silence (anahata sabda in yoga). Listen to the note they transmit, then go deeper into the sounds and listen to the note behind them. Then let the sounds resonate through your entire body washing tensions and worries.In Indian spirituality, chanting or listening to mantras are considered to be greatly relaxing and uplifting. It has been proved that meditating on the sound of `OM` can have therapeutic effects on nerves, muscles, circulation and brain.Sound therapy is found to be extremely beneficial in almost all stress related problems. It can be helpful for:• Easier, more effective sleep. • Regaining vitality and a sense of well being.• Obliteration of tiredness.• Deep relaxation, relief from anxiety and consequent healing of stress-related disorders such as high blood pressure, hypertension, digestive problems.• Correction of stammering and other speech defects induced by psychological disturbances. Dyslexia, hyperactivity and behavioral problems in children can also be effectively treated by therapeutic sounds.• Weight loss. A balanced body vibration ensures reduction in stress effects and metabolism rates. This can diminish artificial craving for food as under stress.• Increasing mental focus and concentration.WALKING FOR STRESS RELIEFTension, anxiety and anger can be enormously overwhelming feelings. Their unchecked expression can ruin our outer existence and suppressing them can vitiate our inner being. But such negative emotions can be effectively expended by taking long walks in open environments.Walking provides you with an excellent opportunity to recharge and invigorate your body with extra intake of oxygen and release of muscle tensions. Through long walks, important organs such as heart, lungs, digestive system, and muscles get thoroughly exercised, facilitating blood circulation.The act of walking is recognized as a therapy with multifaceted benefits. Walking is also an effective and handy stress buster.How Walking Repulses Stress:—The walk can be a three-part exploration of your stress. You can begin at a moderate pace and then increase your speed. As you walk at a moderate pace, raise your eyes to the middle ground 6 – 8 feet ahead of you. This is a warm up pace, which allow your feelings and thoughts to open up. It helps you explore the cause of the emotional turmoil, whether it is inside you or came from a situation outside yourself.—As you pick up fast pace it makes you feel more energetic and helps speed up your thinking process. You try to find solution to the problem. You even exhaust the pent up negative emotions when you complete a fair round of walk. You may choose to forgive people and forget the causes that created the situation.—At the end you can slow down to a pace where inner feeling are more accessible. You may size up the stressors and discover methods to avoid them in future by modifying your thinking and attitude.Regular walking sessions can make you feel surer about you, can improve your physical and mental discipline apart from keeping your body healthy. In the process you release your blocked energy and negative feelings and thoughts.MUSIC THERAPYMusic, or sound coordinated in a rhythmic manner, is known to appeal to our inner being so powerfully that it can effect healing in our body. The science of yoga reveals that body is made of vibrating energy. Difference in physicality suggests the presence of different types of vibrations in that energy. Music, whether vocal or instrumental, basically sends out various forms of vibrating sound-energy to its surrounding. People are generally attracted to the types of music appealing to their inherent body vibration. Some people may love to listen to the high and racy vibrations of jazz, but to some other it`s the slow and lilting sound of flute that appeals most.The sound of music, when coordinates well with one`s inner vibration, untangles the knotted and stressed out nerves, soothes the mind-body, and promotes well-being in human as well as other species. Music can be a source of emotional enjoyment, whether one performs or just experiences it as a passive listener.In human body, the music appreciation center is located in the right hemisphere of the brain. By listening to music one `switches-over` from the left hemisphere (dominant for binary activities) to the creative right hemisphere. It helps stimulate one`s thinking pattern. Music has tremendous relaxation effect on our mind as well as our body. Surveys on the effect of music therapy reveal that favorable musical vibrations can promote a positive thought process in an individual.Modern therapeutic science says that music has a massaging effect on our brain. Perhaps, that is the primary reason for widespread usage of music as an anti-anxiety and antidepressant therapy and the handiest tool for relaxation.So, each day massaging your brain with a few moments of your favorite tunes and melodies, can go a long way in making you a cheerful and positive person.AUTOGENIC TRAINING FOR STRESSAutogenic training is a European method of relaxation based upon passive concentration and body awareness of specific sensations. Since the last century it has been successfully applied in relieving most stress-related disorders. The affected person learns to use the techniques in relieving stress symptoms such as anxiety, tension, sleep disorder, and examination stress as well as in chronic stress induced medical conditions. The technique`s disease alleviating capabilities has given it the status of a therapy in the western part of the world.Though autogenic training is effectively used for reducing stress it is contra-indicated for person`s suffering from diabetes, hypoglycemia, heart conditions, and high or low blood pressure. BIOFEEDBACKBiofeedback is a technique in which stress affected persons are taught to improve their health and physical performance by altering their brain activity, blood pressure, muscle tension, heart rate and other bodily functions. Under stress these functions become unusual. Patients are taught to use signals from their own bodies, recognize the anomalies and redirect them accordingly. This technique of `bio-feed-back` came into being in late 1960s following successful laboratory tests on patients.Despite initial skepticism, researchers proved that many individuals could really alter their involuntary responses by being ‘fed back’ information either visually or audibly about what was occurring in their bodies. Studies have also shown that we can actually have more control over so-called involuntary bodily functions.Under Biofeedback method of treatment, mechanical sensor devices are used to pick up electrical signals from the muscles and translate the signals into a form that people can decode. This device triggers a flashing light or activates a beeper every time muscles become tenser. If one wants to relax tense muscles, one must try to slow down the flashing or beeping. People learn to associate sensations from the muscle with actual levels of tension and develop a new, healthy habit of keeping muscles only as tense as and for as long as that is necessary. After treatment, individuals are often able to reproduce this response at will without being attached to the sensors.Biological functions such as skin temperature fluctuations, heart rate, sweat gland activity, and brainwave activity are commonly measured and used in similar way to help people learn to control their physical functioning.At present Biofeedback techniques are widely used for an increasing number of stress induced disorders. Some of these ailments are discussed below:• Migraine headaches—The American Association for Headache cites Biofeedback as an acceptable treatment. Repeated clinical and laboratory experiments shows that Biofeedback is an effective treatment for migraine and tension headaches both among children and adults.• Stress and strain—Numerous experiments, using biofeedback training, have shown that people suffering from anxiety, tension and other stress disorders have been successful in controlling these conditions. Studies on women with PMS have shown biofeedback can help relieve the symptoms.&bull
