Harp Music Stabilizes Blood Pressure, Lessens Pain In ICU Patients: Study

(Huffington Post) — Music may be able to help heal — literally.

Beyond its soothing, stress-busting effects, a small new study from the University of Arizona shows how harp music can have physiological effect on patients in an intensive care unit by stabilizing blood pressure levels and decreasing feelings of pain.

The study included 100 adults (many were middle age or seniors). Half of them were given 10 minutes to just relax, while the other half enjoyed a 10-minute harp performance. The researchers measured their blood pressure and pain levels before and after the 10-minute harp or relaxation periods.
