Mind, Body & the Smooth Groovin’ Zone
JAZZ washes away THE DUST of every day LIFE.. Art Blake
Listening to Jazz can actually have an effect on the type of brain waves you produce – which can be stimulating or relaxing. THETA brain waves (4-8 hertz): Listening to the distinctive syncopation of some jazz can bring about theta brain waves, the most highly creative brain wave. They inspire new insights and solutions to unresolved problems (“Eureka!” moments).
Since stress is the root of many health problems, the relaxing effect of jazz music can have an incredible healing influence. It physically changes your body by lowering your heart and respiratory rate. Listening to jazz for 30 minutes boosts immunoglobulin A (IgA) levels. IgA resides in mucous linings of the body and acts as an antibody; preventing virus, bacteria, and infection. The effect on IgA levels continues for an additional 30 minutes after the music stops playing
A study conducted by Dorothy Retallack in 1973 played music to plants for two weeks. Plants “listening” to classical and jazz music physically leaned 15 to 20 degrees toward the radio while plants “listening” to rock music grew away from the radio, became sick, and died.
