Listen Upon Diagnosis – Music for Cancer Care
As someone who has walked two journeys with breast cancer, I know the anxiety, fear, and uncertainty that comes with an initial diagnosis (see Meet Amy Camie below). Feelings of confusion and lack of control are familiar to many new patients, their family members, and friends.
Listening to this music helps lessen anxiety during the initial time after diagnosis, as soothing melodies gently wrap you in a soft blanket of sound, reminding you, you’re not alone.
Sleep is often difficult as uncontrollable thoughts and feelings keep us awake. This extended single track of Healing Harp Music helps calm your mind and relax your body, allowing you to drift into peaceful sleep, leaving you more rested and prepared for your next series of tests and treatment plans.
Listen During All Forms of Treatment – Music for Chemo
Listening to this music during treatment helps support your body’s brainwave and immune system function.
“…studies suggest that listening to The Magic Mirror solo harp CD can be used in combination with other therapy for cancer or physiologically stressed patients to reduce the magnitude and duration of the effect of their disease." Waheed A, Kossor D, Collins W, Camie A (2018) Effect of Specific Music on Psychoneuroimmunological Responses. Int J Oncol Res 1:012. (download Supportive Research below)
I listened to this music daily during chemotherapy and radiation and experienced minimal side effects from these treatments.
Listen as a Conscious Self-Care Choice - Music for Cancer Wellness
For many, a cancer diagnosis is an opportunity to slow down and start taking care of themselves. My diagnosis was the beginning of a conscious self-care journey – a journey to remember how to love myself again and live a wellness lifestyle from the inside out.
This music played during my biopsies, surgeries, yoga classes, massage therapy sessions, acupuncture treatments, and throughout the day in our home – a continual reminder that I was loved and supported.
Finishing treatment(s) comes with a paradox of emotions as patients often feel relieved and excited to be finished and yet alone and untethered to the professional care and support they had during treatments. This creates another cycle of fear, anxiety, and uncertainty as we now walk into their unknown future.
Listening to this music can help as it calms the mind, relaxes the body, and gently soothes the soul - reminding you, you are loved and never alone.
