Music's Power to Heal: Your Emotional Mind
Music's Power to Heal is the first ebook to be released in a series revealing how the Music Medicine Protocol works, in short reads. Imagine making music work like medicine to heal trauma, control moods, regulate emotions, develop emotional fluidity, deepen empathy, improve emotional intelligence - and more.
My career as a professional violinist changed - from working with iconic music legends such as Elton John, Natalie Cole, Metallica, Barry Manilow, Andrea Bocelli - to healing thousands of people struggling with addiction, mental health, abuse, trauma, and PTSD.
It all began when a nurse discovered that my solo violin music replaced routine medication for my husband-at-the-time directly after emergency back surgery. Ignoring pursuits of fame or fortune I passionately embarked on a passion to understand the power of music - from all styles, not just classical, including Soul, R&B, Country, Rock & Jazz, Rap, Metal and Hiphop too.
Could I craft music prescriptively to positively impact human physiology? Decades after my hospital experience, I developed the Music Medicine Protocol which is automated in ecourses, experienced in music therapy sessions, personalized in trainings, and now available in the first of a series of easy-read ebooks/paperbacks on the topic.
"A very informative, educational, and logical treatise on "music therapy." An easy read. Music is in all our lives and it can be transformational, both positively and negatively (think romantic ballads such "The 12th of Never" versus hard rock). Thank you, Judith, for your talent as a musician and "music therapist." You are the best!"
- Ted McAdam, Lt Colonel, USAF Retired
"Judith Pinkerton's insightful journey through the way music can modify a person's response to pain is quite a revelation to me. As a retired surgeon, a patient myself, and fervent work-out enthusiast, it explained a great deal about the roots of our mental reaction to various types of songs. Judith's New Way to U.S.E. music is an engrossing read, and she has explained where and when various songs help dampen noxious influences, like pain, without medications. I enjoyed this book!"
- Kathy Mahon, MD
"We each connect with music as a natural response to the human condition. It is familiar. Pinkerton demonstrates stunning examples of the evolution of how we have thought about and value music that may shock you."
- Andy Kuniyuki, PhD, Professor, Nevada State College
"As a former private investigator in Las Vegas I read everything with a skeptical eye on the details. This has been an eye-opening look at the power and potential of music that I couldn’t have imagined. The author’s quest produced insights that have changed the way I see things in the world."
- Arleen Sirois, Author, Madam P.I., True Tales of a Las Vegas Private Investigator
