You can credit singer/massage therapist, Karina Yanku, and composer, Joao MacDowell, for a new modality called OanaMassage.
Your right brain (creative side) enjoys the music. The tempo stays at a constant 60 beats per minute, which is slow. The chords progress along the seven main chakras. Research has shown that listening to music at this tempo helps with right-left brain synchronization. Your brain waves slow to the alpha state. Your left-brain (logical side) recognizes the music patterns and the massage together, and over time, relaxation comes faster.
Since we are bombarded by stress in different forms, any opportunity to become calmer, more creative and increase your physical performance and this modality is said to deepen the therapeutic effects of your massage. You are calmer, more creative, and your physical performance increases. That sounds like a win-win situation.
