Music for spa areas

Research shows music fundamentally affects the release of neurochemicals in the brain. It increases the release of serotonin and dopamine and reduces the effects of cortisol. This makes it a crucial component of gyms, spa areas, receptions and waiting rooms.

How does Music Help?

Music has been shown to engage some of the broadest and most diverse networks of the brain. While the auditory cortex in the temporal lobes close to your ears are activated helping you hear, that’s just the beginning. Music triggers a variety of memory regions and the parts of the brain involved in emotion and the motor system. This activates almost all brain regions and network, helping keep your brain networks strong, including the paths and networks involved in well-being, learning, cognitive function, quality of life, and happiness. Participating in social activities is another way in which it is possible to engage so many brain networks all at once, combining the two is even better.

According to one survey both casual and focused listeners had higher average scores for mental well-being and reduced levels of anxiety and depression compared to others. We all know prolonged periods of stress can wreak havoc on our bodies. This is why experts often recommend listening to relaxing music to help lower physical and psychological stress.

How does this affect my AV?

From reception areas to libraries and other zones where guests are invited to relax, such as saunas and steam rooms, music is a vital component to get the ambience right. Although having music in these areas is important, it is crucial to make sure the correct Tech is used. Environments such as saunas, steam rooms, swimming pools and bathrooms, have elevated levels of humidity and heat, which can affect quality if the correct systems aren’t installed. Our experts can help you select the best solutions for the area – and budget.
