Trouble falling asleep? Try brain music therapy
Apparently, a Russian neuropsychiatrist at Columbia University has pioneered a groundbreaking insomnia remedy known as brain music therapy. And, no, it doesn't involve a bottle of Stolichnaya or a trip to a Russian banya. Barbara Hoffman in the New York Post describes how the sleep technique developed by Dr. Galina Mindlin at Columbia University works:
"Developed a decade ago in Russia, it involves recording the brain's electrical activity, or brain waves, via an EEG, during a time when you're most relaxed and transforming those same waves into synthesized musical sounds, which are recorded on a CD and played back at bedtime... The theory is that listening to your brain at rest helps your mind to relax into sleep."
