Music can have a therapeutic and relaxing effect after a stressful day. If you aren’t sleeping well, try playing a relaxation or meditation CD while lying in bed. This type of music tends to be monotone without a lot of crescendo. It is ideal for helping your mind to slow down and stop working so hard, which is usually what is keeping you up. I have made many CDs of the music I use in my facials for clients who were either under stress or just having trouble getting to sleep from time to time.
Here are links to a few of the favorites that I play during my facial treatments (and some client favorites, too!):
Aeoliah’s Angel Love
Here is a list that encompasses most of the music in my facial treatment CD library. Please know I do not receive any compensation or anything for you clicking through to Amazon with the following links. In some cases you can listen to snippets from the CDs on Amazon, so I thought this might be helpful to you.
- Deuter: Tibet, Wind & Mountain, Earth Blue
- Steven Halpern: Music for Healing, Gifts of the Angels, Crystal Bowl Healing, Spectrum Suite
- Relaxation & Meditation with Music & Nature: Summer Solitude
- Aeolah: (see above), The Liquid Light of Healing
- 33 Bowls: Tibetan Singing Bowls—I don’t play this often in facials, but I do play it a lot at home. In fact, I love the sound of these bowls!
- Brian Eno: Ambient 1: Music for Airports, Ambient 2: Plateaux of Mirror
- Daniel Kobialka: (see above), Timeless Motion
- Steve Roach: Structures from Silence, Quiet Music
- Paul Horn: *Music (1997), Inside the Taj Mahal
*For some reason I couldn’t find this particular CD on Amazon. I wanted to include it here because once in a while a client wants me to change the sometimes “eerie” or spacey music I have on, and I always grab Music by Paul Horn.
