Try “pausing” your mp3 player for a few seconds before you “play” to let the stream build up.

Sound healing and music therapy are not cure-alls but should really be included in your medicine cabinet as part of your pain-reduction program.
You often take cough medicine because you know it will bring relief from your symptoms and discomfort, even though you don’t like the taste. The music on the Ease Chronic Pain CD is like music medicine. It is not a taste you recognize or necessarily enjoy, but you try it because you know it will make you feel better. Music to Ease Chronic Pain follows the musical entrainment process for the optimal results in helping you with your pain relief. The music starts out by mirroring your current pain state and gradually shifts to an enveloping, warm nurturing and comforting state. You are carried along with it.
A Musical Massage.
The sound waves themselves have a force that can help relax the blocked energy that may be associated with your pain. Some of the sections of the music are repetitive in nature. This minimalistic approach to repeating a musical pattern may seem odd until you begin to understand and actually feel the hidden benefit. The repetition is intentional in order for the musical passages to resonate in the areas of your being where you have
the most pain — just like fingers kneading a sore back during a massage.
Guided Imagery Helps “Image” Your Pain and Set it Free.
The guided imagery component is designed to help you develop the power of your mind over your body by focusing on your thoughts. The words will help you paint a picture of your pain in your mind, then visualize it as images, light, color, and energy moving throughout and then out of your body. You will feel totally relaxed. The exercise will help you release tension and stress, and experience reduced pain or even a pain-free state.
As you experience the imagery repeatedly over time, you may gradually deepen your ability to use visualizations to achieve more voluntary control over your pain.

“I would recommend ‘Sound Healing: Ease Chronic Pain’ to my clients.”

“It was week two after undergoing a major surgery and I was writhing in pain. I was having a problem easing off of my narcotic pain medications. Howard, my friend since elementary school, knew I was going through a rough time and sensed that the pain management book/CD might help me. I remember playing the CD and being very open to it because I knew that Howard was a brillant pianist and a very kind and healing person. I definitely had an out of body
experience while I listened to the sounds. I focused on the music healing the area where the surgery had taken place. When the discordant notes were played, I imagined them vacuuming up all the painful energy within my body. I completely surrendered to the suggestions of the CD and was totally open to the power of the healing thoughts that were spoken. A few hours later I woke up from the experience to find that the excruciating pain that had been tormenting me was GONE. After listening to the CD, I was able to dramatically reduce my narcotic pain
medications until I got off of them completely. I believe the pain management CD sped up my healing process and I will be forever grateful to Howard for giving me such an important gift of healing.”
—Carole Medway, B.A., R.N. Tarzana, CA
“I had major surgery due to an old injury that would not heal or allow me fall asleep. I couldn't even begin my physical therapy because the pain was unbearable. After listening to your CD the very first time, I was able to sit and stand up straight AND take deep breaths all without pain. Minutes later, I was dancing and days later I began my physical therapy. Thank you Howard and Judy for making it possible to 'ease my chronic pain'
quickly and without drugs.”
“You are most talented. I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, a connective tissue disorder that causes severe joint hypermobility and organ displacement. This has resulted in 21 surgeries, with mixed results. Pain is my constant companion, and your CD is so helpful that I actually got addicted to it at first, and listened 4 or 5 times a day for a couple weeks. Now it's place is more balanced among my meditation repertoire, but it's among my very
favorites. I bought a copy for my friend who has fibromyalgia, etc., and she loved it, too.”
