From the Back of the Book:

Music is all round us. It marks every event of our life, from birth, mirage and death to the phases in-between. Man has long known that music has the ability to calm, cajole and rejuvenate. But it is only recently that science has begun to understand, study and document the effects of music in methodology, which leaves little room for doubt.

It is now an established fact that music helps all living creatures - from plants to birds and animals and man - to grow and rejuvenate. Music permeates the cells of all living beings, alters mood swings, cell division, heals the ailing, includes sleep, creates wakefulness, and dances with the mood, the mind and the soul.

With the rishis of ancient India and the Vedas first documented the effects of music on the human being and all life, it was left to the western world of fashion the more modern concepts of healing through music. There are now serious music therapy courses in the world's best universities and remunerative openings abroad for music therapists. This book dwells heavily on the findings from ancient India and the masters of today who have made music therapy a viable healing alternative. It is the most comprehensive guide on the healing powers of sound & music.
