Synopsis

Since
1991, Dr. Mitchell Gaynor has been achieving remarkable results by integrating
music, vocalization, breathing, and meditation techniques in his work with
patients. In
The
Healing Power of Sound,

he presents his sound-based techniques for self-healing—techniques that anyone
can use, whether faced with a life-threatening disease or simply seeking relief
from the stresses of daily life.

Numerous
studies have demonstrated the health benefits of music: it can lower blood
pressure and heart and respiratory rates; reduce cardiac complications;
increase the immune response; and boost our natural opiates. Gaynor shows how,
when integrated as part of a mind-body-spirit approach to wellness, music can
play a significant part in maintaining a healthy lifestyle or in healing
serious disease.
The
Healing Power of Sound

includes twelve exercises involving breathing, meditation, and
"toning"—using pure vocal sound to resolve tension, release emotion,
and spur the healing process—that can be used by anyone to improve health and
quality of life.
