To listen music is a lot relaxing and soothing, but there is a particular song whose notes have the power to reduce anxiety by up to 65%. The confirmation comes from a British study, conducted by Dr. David Lewis-Hodgson of Mindlab International.
The "therapeutic" song is Weightless. Sound-based therapies have been known for some time and have been shown to be effective in increasing relaxation. For centuries, indigenous cultures have used music to improve their well-being and health conditions.
The study was conducted on a series of volunteers who were asked to solve difficult puzzles as quickly as possible. Solving the task increased their stress levels, but in the meantime the participants listened to several songs, while the researchers measured their brain activity and other parameters including heart rate, blood pressure and breathing rate.
According to Dr. David Lewis-Hodgson who led the research, Weightless was the song that produced the greater state of relaxation compared to any other newspaper to date, to the point of reducing participants' overall anxiety by up to 65 percent.
In reality it is not just any song, but a set of notes put together with this precise purpose. The group that created "Weightless“, The Marconi Union, did it in collaboration with the sound therapists. Her carefully arranged harmonies, rhythms, help slow down the listener's heart rate by reducing blood pressure and lowering levels of cortisol, the stress hormone.
