Music Therapy is the implementation of a musical intervention by a trained professional. It is used in oncology in preventive, curative and palliative care to address the physical, emotional, cognitive and social needs of cancer patients.⠀
Two techniques are used:⠀
- Interactive music therapy (where the patient is actively involved in improvisation or singing)⠀
- Passive or receptive methods (including listening to live or recorded music, doing progressive muscle relaxation whilst listening to music or using imagery to induce relaxation)⠀
A meta analysis on the benefits of music therapy for cancer patients found that music lowered anxiety, improved depression, had positive effects on pain management, lowered heart rate and respiratory rate, and improved quality of life. ⠀
Music Therapy is very flexible: it can be offered individually or in group settings, can be used at home during recovery, or in hospital whilst undergoing active treatment (chemotherapy or radiotherapy). It is tailored to the individual (i.e. their favourite pieces of music are played) to maximise therapeutic benefit.⠀

Asking all perth people ✨✨ what are your favourite wholefood stores and healthy shops ? 💫
Mindfulness is hard to come across nowadays in our extremely busy lives.
Try incorporating it into you daily routine - even if it is just 10 mins before going to sleep.
Yes! ✨ 27 and finally learning how to take care of myself. Feels good! & bad sometimes, but mostly good. The more I see about myself the closer I get to a healthy mind, body, and spirit. The yucky feelings won’t last forever, soon I’ll be feeling better than I ever have.
It’s not always easy to reflect on our own behavior, to truly question why we do the things we do, or feel the way we feel. To truly look at oneself from a third party perspective. To watch every action, to observe.Lately I’ve been reflecting on my feelings and actions. I ask myself, “Are you reaching for the phone out of habit? Do you eat when you are lonely or bored? Do you feel rushed?” I can honestly say that acknowledging my feelings and behaviors throughout the day has led me to feel more content and mindful... Obviously, I still make mistakes, we all do! But questioning everything, paying careful attention, without judgement has freed me. This world is full of mysteries beyond the minds ability to comprehend. Namaste 💕🌞 #journey #mindfulness #mindful #free #love #awaken #awakening #awakeningoflife #love #life #happiness #flow #rant
:: The Mind + Body Connection :: 🧠✨💕
The Mind + Body connection, is what I have been focusing on lately. Tying together my physical healing aspirations, with mental and emotional wellness. Personally I have been working through this mostly through spiritual practices lately (meditation, journaling, introspection, lots of reading) to help strengthen my Mind + Body connection.💆🏾♀️
In learning more about how the mind, body, and spirit are ALL interconnected and how they contribute to your overall health; I am realizing more and more about how we possess the ability to heal and prevent SOME illness through discipline and a holistic practice versus treating symptoms. 🌿
Although, it may not always be possible to completely eradicate oneself of illness. For me I’m not satisfied treating my chronic illnesses with pills alone and putting MY health in some else’s hands.
I’ve been working hard, learning how to reprogram my thought process, opening up my chakras, and how to better manifest. Emotionally coming out of my comfort zone to healing and grow spiritually. Research. Read. Meditate. Cry. Listen. Journal. Reflect. Grow. 📖🧠💫💕
In order for me to transcend my physical illnesses and continue my self-healing journey, I must rework my negative thought process and let go of anger and resentment. Because the mind and body are interconnected things like, negative thoughts and emotional trauma can manifest as physical symptoms and undermined healing. .

THE RITUAL OF UNIVERSE „Es gibt Augenblicke, in denen in unseren Leben Widrigkeiten auftauchen, die wir nicht verhindern können. Doch alles hat seinen Grund. Erst nachträglich begreifen wir, warum es sie gegeben hat.“ - Paulo Coelho
Ich habe Erfahrungen und Schicksalsschläge erlebt, die im ersten Moment schmerzhaft waren und meine Lebensenergie ausgesaugt haben. Als ich verstanden habe WARUM ich sie erfahren durfte, war mir alles klar. Es war die Botschaft vom Universum: „Auf dich wartet etwas viel höheres. Es ist noch nicht deine Lebensaufgabe, WARUM du auf dieser Welt bist.“ Jeder Mensch auf dieser Welt ist nicht ohne Grund hier. Wir sind hier, um unsere Lebensaufgabe zu leben. Dadurch hat unser Leben erst den Sinn, wofür wir bestimmt sind. Das Schöne ist, wir brauchen ihn nicht zu suchen, er ist in uns selbst.
Erst in der Stille und mit den richtigen Fragen, bekommen wir die Antworten von unserer Seele, unserem Geist und unserem Körper.
In der Stille erkennen wir, was wir wirklich wollen, was unsere Bestimmung ist und können aus unserer inneren Weisheit schöpfen. Dadurch können wir erkennen, dass wir in unserem Herzen einen wundervollen goldenen Samen haben. Einen Schatz von unermesslichen Wert. Diesen goldenen Samen freizulegen und zum Strahlen zu bringen.
Bewusst werden, dass wir eine Weltenseele sind und verbunden sind mit dem ganzen Universum. Zu verstehen, dass das Universum für uns ist und uns so lange Botschaften sendet, bis wir unser WARUM leben.
With all my love and wisdom

Live Bold and Courageously! 💪
So often people say that they can’t afford a massage/pedi/retreat or that they don’t know WHAT to do for self-care 🤷♀️ or they don’t have time for self-care. 🙋🏻♀️ I get that. I used to be the same. But there is another way.
So I have some Monday afternoon choose-your-own-self-care inspiration for you, lovely ✨✨ ... simple, nourishing, easy to do on the bus on the way home or while you’re making dinner.
Choose from creativity or an idea 🤔
If you choose to fill up on creativity, take 5 minutes to dance to a song which reminds you of being 18 years old 💃🏼 or sing in the shower 🎶 🚿 or draw/paint/sketch what you are grateful for today.
If you choose to fill up on an idea 💡, listen to a podcast - some of my favourites are @mumswithhustle @mitlesouthey
‘s Spirited Sister Podcast, @jessclively
‘s The Lively Show, and @realrobbell
‘s Robcast ... or a @ted
talk - @brenebrown
‘s talk on Vulnerability is one of my all-time favourites as is @elizabeth_gilbert_writer
... or go to the library and read one of your favourite books from when you were little ... or journal on the question “What does your soul want you to know?” - inspired by @rebeccathoughts
‘s event last week.
I would love to see and hear what you choose and how it leaves you feeling 😘😘 #zimzummotherhood #zimzumselfcare #chooseyourownselfcareadventure #selfcareisthebestcare #takingcareofyou
The state you are in right now is always temporary. Nothing in life is ever permanent. Embrace change cause it is an eternal nature.

One of our students at Southwestern went hiking with a friend at the Rio en Medio Trail and wanted to encourage everyone not to let a day pass without having a little bit of fun! Thanks Samara!
