IN THE NEWS 68 @dayspamagazine • Januar y 2019 Listening to yoga music at bedtime is good for the heart, according to research presented at European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress 2018. The study included 149 healthy people who participated in three sessions on separate nights before sleep—each one involved listening to either yoga music, pop music with steady beats or no music/silence. Each session, heart rate variability was measured for fi ve minutes before the music or silence started, for ten minutes during the music/silence, and for fi ve minutes after it had stopped. Anxiety levels were also assessed before and after sessions using the Goldberg Anxiety Scale, and the level of positive feelings was subjectively measured using a visual analogue scale. The researchers found that heart rate variability increased during the yoga music, decreased during the pop music and did not signifi cantly change during the silence. Anxiety levels fell signifi cantly after the yoga music, rose signifi cantly following the pop music and even increased after silent sessions. Meanwhile, participants felt more positive after the yoga music than they did after the pop music. "More research is needed on the cardiovascular effects of music interventions offered by a trained music therapist, but listening to soothing music before bedtime is a cheap and easy-to-implement therapy that cannot cause harm," says study author Naresh Sen, MD, consultant cardiologist at HG SMS Hospital in Jaipur, India. u A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC JANUARY 23-24 Indie Beauty Expo Los Angeles JANUARY 26-28 The International Salon and Spa Expo (ISSE) Long Beach, California MARCH 1-5 American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) Annual Meeting Washington, D.C.
