Imagine feeling weightless!
Marconi Union produced “Weightless”, a “song” with so many benefits … and we share it with you with excitement … the relaxed kind. ‘Weightless’ has received an award for the song that produced the greatest state of relaxation (over any other piece of music tested to date).
How can music exert such a powerful effect?
“Brain imaging studies have shown that music works at a very deep level within the brain, stimulating not only those regions responsible for processing sound but also ones associated with emotions. When listening to music, we engage both the logical left and artistic right sides of our brain, which is why it can exert surprising and positive benefits, not only in combating daily stress but also in aiding such mentally challenging activities as memorizing, learning a language, focusing attention and developing physical coordination. One of the reasons for the relaxing qualities of certain pieces of music is that they stimulate production of the ‘feel-good’ chemical dopamine.” ~ British Academy of Sound Therapy Study
‘Weightless’ has a gradually sustaining rhythm that starts at 60 beats per minute (bpm) and gradually slows to 50. Your own heartbeat naturally mirrors the music’s change in bpm. A beautiful way to slow down. This brilliant piece of music uses a variety of frequencies, tones, and samples of natural sounds to lull you into a trance-like state.
There have been many studies about ‘Weightless’ … one claims the music is able to induce greater relaxation levels in participants than a massage. Another reports a significant reduction in a listener’s overall anxiety, (and also a reduction in heart rate, breath rate, blood pressure and levels of the stress hormone cortisol).
