It’s pretty subjective isn’t it? My favourite piece, isn’t necessarily yours and vice versa. My daughter’s most definitely isn’t my cup of tea, but at least she’s moved on from One Direction. But when she went through a phase of playing Bruno Mars’ Grenade over and over, I just wanted to lob one into her bedroom. Perhaps that’s just me?!! (Sorry Bruno, I like most of your compositions, just not that one).

When it comes to music in my treatment room, I suppose it’s the same thing. I tend to use music that doesn’t have lyrics because when I go for a treatment, I want to still my mind and not be wondering what the singer just sang, as sometimes lyrics become lost in the cacophony of noise. (Sorry, there I go again, being judgmental).

Really switching off and following the music’s journey, losing yourself in the quiet, slow, rhythmic, calm perhaps interspersed with some natural sounds – rain, rumbles of thunder, etc can be a sublime experience. I don’t use whale music as this to me is still conversation and I always start imagining these majestic creatures at sea having little chitty-chats, which leads me to think about conservation, our use of plastic, etc – again not particularly relaxing as my brain is actively working.

The music here at Harmony Holistics fits with my ethos of creating a calm, quiet and safe space for my clients. My default is to have the music playing in the background and no one has ever commented that they don’t like it. However, it’s not a question I routinely ask “do you like the music?”

It may be that to relax and switch off, you like a little William Tell, Rimsky Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee, Motorhead or ZZ Top so I suppose I need to start asking the question. However, if you request One Direction, I may just send you on your way!!! It’ll certainly be interesting to give a massage to some of these rather upbeat pieces and iff that’s your thing, then do let me know.

If you’d like to book in, please send me a message or call me on 07850 414271.

I look forward to seeing you soon.
