Music and wellbeing

Welcome to our page dedicated to exploring the benefits of music on wellbeing. From the earliest days of human civilisation, music has played an important role in our lives. It has the power to evoke strong emotions, lift our spirits, and even change our mood. But did you know that music can also have a profound impact on our physical and mental health?

Studies have shown that listening to music can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. It can also lower blood pressure and heart rate, improve sleep quality, and boost the immune system. Additionally, playing a musical instrument or singing can improve cognitive function and memory, enhance creativity, and provide a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment.

Whether you are a music lover or simply curious about the benefits of this universal language, we invite you to explore this page and discover the many ways that music can enhance your wellbeing.

Multisensory creativity and wellbeing workshop

A NEW, UNIQUE APPROACH TO PROMOTING WELLBEING AND CREATIVITY THROUGH MULTISENSORY EXPERIENCES

Thursday 29th June 2023

These workshops use a range of practices, including sound, breathing, movement, synchrony, contact, scent exploration, and theatre-based exercises, to draw attention, focus and awareness to all of our senses, generating a feeling of connection with yourself, others and your environment. The approaches used during the session are grounded in neuroscience and psychology research and have been tested in clinical and therapeutic contexts with highly positive results.

Our approach focuses on the power of sensory experiences to unlock creativity and promote
wellbeing.
By connecting with our senses, our workshops can help individuals express themselves
through art in all its multisensory forms and build connections with others.
Our workshops offer several benefits, including reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, improving overall mental health, and fostering creativity. Participants can develop skills that can be applied to various aspects of their lives, including problem-solving, innovation, and personal growth.

The facilitator

Valeria Perboni, Brunel University’s Artist in Residence and Music Tree’s teacher, has successfully run these workshops for staff and students of the university. These sessions are designed to create a safe and inclusive space for people to explore
their creativity, develop skills, ideas, and collaborations, and connect with others, without the fear of
judgement or the pressure of producing art at the end (however, in most cases, participants feel they want to create!)

Singing Sounds of Yoga and Yoga Nidra

MANTRA FROM INDIA, FOLLOWED BY DEEP RESTING, FOR GOOD HEALTH AND WELLBEING

Utilising our singing voice for mantras of healing, and then immersing ourselves into deep rest and letting-go with the ancient “conscious sleep” based meditation practice of “Yogic Nidra”, we create a recharging and rejuvenating experience for better health and well-being in body, mind and soul. No prior knowledge of singing or Yoga is needed in order to participate in these workshops.

All are welcome. Everyone is guided to the empowering realisation that healing is always just a thought away.

The facilitator

Stephan Hein. CAM-Practitioner (complementary holistic therapies), Yoga teacher and musician Stephan will guide you into a world of soothing stillness, inspiration and joy with a fusion of sounds from East & West.
