In this recent post to MusicThinkTank, Jenny Susan explores how music can help calm the brain and assist in allowing listeners to fall asleep.
"Music therapy involves using these soothing sound waves such as lullabies and nature sounds to create an optimum setup for the distressed or somnipathy minds to relax faster and drift off to sleep.
