Synopses & Reviews
Like millions of other people, when you're feeling "blue", you might listen to music to reflect your feelings, or to cheer you up. Dr. Ortiz has focuses on this basic impulse and created an effective, systematic way to deal with life's vagaries. He offers "Musical Menus" of carefully selected songs and melodies, reflective of specific emotional states that you can use to progress from identifying your pain to healing it. He provides creative exercises, koans (mediative questions), anecdotes, and case histories that reveal the transformative power of music. Dr. Ortiz uses behavioral, cognitive, and affective psychological techniques incorporated with toning, chanting, affirmations, and visualization to help you deal with issues such as chronic pain, lack of self-esteem, depression, anger and more. You can use music to change your life, and Dr. Ortiz shows you how!
