pain relief

'Zoe is my first child and breastfeeding was very painful. Often I was so very tense, the milk wouldn't come. Now I put on Calmtime first, which relaxes both of us and feeding her is now an enjoyable experience.' Leslie, Bristol, UK

All the research mentioned here has been based on using conventional quiet music. It's worth remembering that Calmtime, with its powerful combination of relaxation aids, is likely to bring you a much stronger effect.

music can reduce 'chronic pain'
Listening to music could considerably reduce chronic pain, say scientists.

Sandra Siedlecki of the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, along with other researchers, studied over 60 patients who were suffering from osteoarthritis, disc problems and rheumatoid arthritis for an average of six and a half years. (This was reported on the online edition of BBC News.)

They found that those who listened to soothing music reported a lessening in pain levels of up to 21 percent and in depression of up to 25 percent, compared to those who did not.

The Journal of Advanced Nursing study also found music helped people feel less disabled by their condition.

Professor Marion Good, who also worked on the study, said: "Listening to music has already been shown to promote a number of positive benefits and this research adds to the growing body of evidence that it has an important role to play in modern healthcare."

arthritis pain
'The Calmtime music seems to help me take my mind off the joint pain in my shoulder, especially at night.' Jenny, Devon

Scientists in Florida have found that just 20 minutes a day of music was enough for patients to report more than a 50% reduction in pain levels. The research was published in the Journal for Advanced Nursing. It was based on tests on 66 older people with chronic osteoarthritis.

Over the 14-day listening period, the amount of natural pain relief continued to increase. Half spent two weeks listening to music for 20 minutes a day and the others spent 20 minutes sitting quietly.

back pain
"My average amount of sleep had been between 4-5 hours a night. I would wake in the early hours and the pain in my back made it impossible to get back to sleep. Now I play Calmtime and get back to sleep for another 3 hours. Marvellous.' Margaret, Cornwall

Lead researcher Professor Ruth McCaffrey, from the Florida Atlantic University College of Nursing, said: "Listening to music is thought to cause the release of endorphins, which reduce pain, such as muscle pain and decrease blood pressure, the heart rate, respiratory rate and oxygen consumption."

Dr. Cathy Stannard, of the British Pain Society, said other studies had shown music could have a positive impact.

muscular pain
Muscular tension produces aches and pains, particularly in the neck and back.

Stress causes increased muscle tension which has a direct effect on increasing your pain levels. Therefore, reduction of stress and muscle tension helps to reduce your pain. Stress saps your energy and reduces your ability to cope with the pain and your life.

post surgical pain
Recent studies indicate music can soothe severe pain for patients recovering from medical procedures. Music may be a good complement to pain-relief drugs, according to a new review of clinical studies.

Patients who listened to music after surgery reported less pain than other patients who were not exposed to music, the review found. Music also reduced the patients' need for morphine-like drugs.

The review appears in the current issue of The Cochrane Library, a publication of The Cochrane Collaboration, an international organization that evaluates research in all aspects of health care.

pain relief and dentist appointments
Many dentists use relaxing Music. If your dentist does not yet offer this service, you are often allowed to bring your own personal stereo and listen to the music during treatment. When you are relaxed and at ease, pain more or less disappears.

nothing helps you relax?

It lasts for 20 minutes and the music is from the orginal calmtime CD. www.calmtime.co.uk/download.htm You can hear a sound sample on the home page if you click on Listen.
