How Music And CES Therapy Ease Anxiety
Can music, combined with CES therapy or cranial electrical stimulators, ease anxiety?
This is a question that is asked quite often and the answer is yes, at least most of the time.
CES therapy devices are devices that help ease anxiety while also helping individuals sleep better. The usual protocol when using CES therapy stimulators is to use them in a quiet environment that is free from distractions. However, there are situations where background music can be quite beneficial.
Cranial stimulators or CES therapy devices are often recommended by therapists and health professionals to help ease anxiety symptoms, ease insomnia and improve mood. The therapists and health professionals that recommend these devices often suggest adding soothing music to CES therapy sessions.
It's important to mention that music that is combined with CES therapy stimulators be "calming". Common choices of music often include "spa type" music or new age, smooth jazz is very popular as well. Music is also often played through noise canceling headphones during session. This can help filter out distractions. Also, recommended CES therapy sessions are typically about 30 to 45 minutes long so you want to be sure that you have uninterrupted music to accommodate the length of your CES therapy session. Music that stops or is interrupted by commercial during your CES therapy session can be detrimental to positive results.
