"In TIMEAUS Plato records an event he witnessed whereby musicians trained by Pythagoras visited the bed of a seriously ill man. According to his account, the man was not expected to live the night, but by morning was to be found not just alive but healthy.
He states that many have reported the apparently miraculous healing power of music that the Pythagoreans had mastered. Clearly, music and rhythm have played a major part in many ancient societies in matters of magic and ritual, but Plato's account is the first direct reference of music being used for healing.
The Pythagoreans held that a high ringing tone, the Music of the Spheres, can be heard by all if they simply tune into it. This is the "Audible Stream of Life" and once you are reconnected with this healing can occur. In the modern day, there is an upsurge of interest in this ancient art. A recognized pioneer in Music Healing research is Professor Tomatis and many know of the book "The Mozart Effect" by Don Campbell.
