Has been scientifically proven: music, before-during-after a surgery, helps the post-op recovery, considerably increasing patient’s satisfaction.


A study, just published on the scientific journal “The Lancet”, shows that music, any kind of, listened before, during or after a surgical treatment, will improve the recovery.


Music reduces pain, anxiety and the use of painkillers, increasing patient’s satisfaction. The same beneficial effects are obtained even when music is “listened” during general anesthesia!
