The Harvard Heart Letter notes that there are several ways to let music into your heart. One is to work with a music therapist. If you can’t find one through your cardiologist or medical center, try the American Music Therapy Association. Do-it-yourself music therapy is another option. Find some music that makes you feel good. Then sit and listen to it for 20 minutes or so.

The Harvard Heart Letter is available from Harvard Health Publications, the publishing division of Harvard Medical School. Subscribe at www.health.harvard.edu/heart. And to read more about the use of music in the spa, check out Skin Inc. magazine's December 2009 article "The Sounds of Spa."
