This recording has pretty little melodies specifically avoiding screechy high sounds, stimulating rhythms, and confusing patterns, which would be of no value in pain control. It contains no familiar songs, which might tend to evoke memories that would interfere with relaxation. The use of focal techniques and of gentle repetition is conducive to a hypnosis type effect, believed to stimulate endorphins and an alpha wave effect of biofeedback therapy. Use in an automobile stereo system has helped to ease tensions in city traffic, but it is not recommended for highway driving.
COMPLEX enough to command the listener to direct his attention to the stereo spectrum.
SIMPLE enough to put him to sleep.
“My son was in ICU with a terrible electrical burn. He told me this music was the only thing that enabled him to sleep, over all the drugs they tried.”
“I was in ICU for 4 days, after a hip operation, and listened to the “Floating Guitars” CD over and over and over again. It was a really big help.”
