A recent Oxford University study concluded that sound can be used to overcome hypertension. According to the Cardiovascular Society of Great Britain, certain music can decrease blood pressure and reduce heart rate. When music matched a patient’s body rhythm, it kept the heart under control.
From The Daily Telegraph:
Author Professor Peter Sleight, a cardiologist from the University of Oxford, said: “Music is already being used commercially as a calming therapy but this has happened independent of controlled studies into its effectiveness.
“Our research has provided improved understanding as to how music, particularly certain rhythms, can affect your heart and blood vessels.
Professor Jeremy Pearson, associate medical director at the British Heart Foundation, said: “We know that stress can play a role in cardiovascular disease so the calming effect of music may have some potential as a therapy.
