WME Tip Calming Anxiety with Music

Use slow, low (tones) and simple music (preferably played on one instrument or voice) to calm anxiety in humans and dogs. 

Slow, low, warming, and simple music also works for balancing the Vata dosha of Ayurvedic medicine.  The low tones discharge the nervous system, the simple melody or music gives the brain a rest (it doesn't have to decipher a complex pattern or rhythms) and the slow tempo slows the heartbeat and pulse.
