We normally “post” topics related to the horrific reality of the “Financial Meltdown” and how it affects homeowners, foreclosures, etc. However, since the Soles Of Passion is a “Band” and music is our primary focus, we are taking this opportunity to post an article about Music and how (and why) it is so good for all of us human beings.
This article was written by Marisa Martin; Here is a direct quote from the article;
“Music may become as common in hospitals as in church. Finnish scientists used music to reclaim memories and help orientate stroke patients to the point of having them sing to communicate (“East-Wing Story”). Researchers find singing can alleviate pain, increase feelings of trust and bonding and cause a rise in molecules that increase immunity in patients. Human brains are highly attuned to music, which helps release dopamine and other brain molecules with tranquilizing or energizing effects – all sans drugs. Music also activates the same area of our brain as opiates and chocolates, without the nasty side effects of incarceration or high blood sugar.”
Now we have a “technical” explanation as to why music makes us all “FEEL SO GOOD” (Just like you knew it would).
