A Song that Reduces Anxiety 65%

A Song that Reduces Anxiety 65%

Posted on: December 17th, 2016 by Neurohealth Associates

Recently there was a group of musicians, sounds therapists, and neuroscientists that teamed up to develop a song to aid in anxiety reduction and stress relief. The song lasts roughly 8 minutes and has a track record of reducing overall anxiety in participants of a UK-based study 65%.

The group that composed the song uses scientific theories related to sound therapy in every aspect of the composition. Things like BPM, tones, harmonic intervals, nature sounds, Buddhist chants, and certain instruments. During the listening experience your blood pressure will fall, your heart-rate will come down to a low resting rate that will eventually match the pace of the song (slows to around 50 BPM).

Studies find it more relaxing than even a massage, a walk, or a cup of tea.

The song is ‘Weightless’ by Marconi Union. Have a listen.

What Clients Say About Us


Julie W.
Teachers made huge comments on his math skills and behavior. I also saw this at home with understanding of what I said to him registering more with him. I saw this in his eyes: recognition. Fewer outbursts of anger.

Anita M.
I am extremely happy with my son’s outcomes and feel very fortunate to have encountered Dr. Bonesteel early in my child’s life. This method has dramatically changed his ability to focus and take initiative. I feel confident that my son’s life has been dramatically enhanced. I can’t express my appreciation fully in words.

Mary B.
Dr. Bonesteel has masterfully, compassionately, and extremely kindly helped me navigate through a history of childhood and marital abuse, a child with twenty years of struggle with life-threatening physical and emotional illness, extended family discord, and disharmony with my child with severe depression. I am blessed to have found Neurohealth Associates.
