My Mind is Still, My Body is Still

Music as a form of therapy has come to us in a time of need from the wonderful mother and Music Therapist Allison Davies. Allison created a musical massage for Fabrik, designed to support anxiety management and get that happy little mantra stuck in your head, using music to support brain function and reduce anxiety for you and your children.

Take a few minutes out of your day to focus on this musical massage and draw your attention away from anything that may be making you anxious. You could sing along with Allison or even practice some meditation or yoga while listening.

Elements of melody, rhythm and repetition are key to activating positive brain function. When we experience melody, it activates more of our brain than any other thing that research has shown, especially the emotional centre of the brain. 


This is ever as important in the time of uncertainty that we are now facing. When routine is gone, singing can bridge a gap between predictability and joy in our environment, with the immense power music has to make people feel connected.

 

Allison’s Every Little Cell chant has been sung by thousands of people around the world, in many different languages. The chant was created to help manage current worries and regulate breathing; a peaceful and joyous mantra to be sung around the house.

"When we sing really simple little tunes, we can move emotions through us so they don't become pent up. A bonus is that when we sing, it's an outbreath. A chant creates a nice controlled inbreath and out again through singing.”
