In the 20 years that I have been working with surgery patients, helping them choose their perfect music to relax them and assist them through their procedure with a minimum of drugs, I have yet to find a procedure that music can’t help.
This dear lady came to me because she was in the midst of a series of eye surgeries to treat her macular degeneration and her glaucoma.

She had emerged from the first two with splitting migraines and a body so stiff and tense she could hardly move for the next several days.
