Could Music Calm You Down During Awake Surgery?

Recently, we were having a talk with a mother about music therapy, she mentioned an experience with awake eye surgery. She said, the doctor played music during the surgery, it makes her feel calm and relax. In fact, music is one of the most common ways for doctors to calm the patients, especially doing awake surgery.

So, what music will you listen to when you try to relax?

The director of IMTC and registered music therapist, Kingman, said music with a positive message could lead to releasing Dopamine, Endorphin in our brain, which allows us to reduce pain and feel calm. However, everyone has their own list of music, we cannot determine a specific list of music to bring the same effect to everyone.

Therefore, if you would like to have your own list of music, you could consult a registered music therapist, to receive a professional opinion and different point of view, to create the best list of music for you!
