special (radio) feature I for the India Music Week (N.Y.):
Energy of the Sound – Raga Chikitsa. [
Subtitle: Healing Music – Nada Chikitsa]

IMW_logo-newIn India had been recognized the response function of ragas as complementary medicine very early for the emotional well-being and health of the people, their physiological effect on the mind, body and soul. In the Indian temples had been used rhythmic sounds of bells, horns and use of shells for the ceremonies, from the knowledge of their therapeutic effect.

Musical sound and its vibrational patterns (Dwhani) are a form of energy in motion transmitted through the medium of air (Vayu) which can penetrate the human body down to each individual cell. In the Indian understanding of music the sound is an energetic form of a cosmic / universal dimension as the source of all being.

Sound has healing power. The rhythm in music is directly related to the heart beat. It finds its equivalence in tempo and rhythm. The breath corresponds to the Hindu understanding as Phrana as the sound of life energy. In the history of South Indian classical music (Carnatic) the Melakarta system was developed as we know it today. It is a classification of 72 main ragams. The number 72 corresponds to the 72 main nerve trunks.

The oldest systematic texts, which are known in human history are the Vedas. There are treatises on philosophy, the sense of life and wisdom for a healthy living. Music is part of Updaveda, a sub category of the Vedas. Upaveda is a science-based system built on the Vedic teachings. There are four (4) Upavedas: 1. Ayurveda (on medicine), 2. Gandharvaveda (about music, dance aesthetics us), 3. Dhanurveda (about archery, war and martial arts) and 4. Sthapatyaveda (on architecture, urban planning, etc.).

In our special feature II for the India Music Week (N.Y.) “Nada – A concept of sound” which is being broadcasted on 8th and 11th October 2013 we will deal dealt with the outer and inner sound, the nada yoga (nada = sound). This topic completes the theme of today’s program: “Raga Chikitsa – Energy of Sound“. It deals explicitly with the therapeutic effect of the Raga scales of North Indian (Hindustani) and South Indian Classics (Carnatic).
Chikitsa raga is a scripture of the ancient India. The translation of Raga Chikitsa is: “The knowledge about the use of ragas for healing.” – Chikitsa comes from Sanskrit and means on its own: “The practice of medical science and its therapeutic application“.

Bringing the knowledge of Indian classical music – Raga Ragini Vidaya – and Raga Chikitsa together, we have the basic blocks to describe the therapeutic effects of Indian ragas.

———————–

Suppl. Note: In the Samaveda, an ancient text of Ayurveda describes in detail the phenomenon of sound for music therapeutic purposes. The human body is dominated by the three doshas: Vatta, Pitta and Kapha. You will find the program “Ragas Time Cycles – Ayurvedic Princips” in our media archive for re-listening: www.imcradio.net/onlinearchive .

special feature I zur India Music Week (IMW), New York:
Energie des Klangs – Raga Chikitsa. [Untertitel: Heilende Musik – Nada Chikitsa]

IMW_logo-newIn Indien hat man die Resonanzfunktion von Ragas für die emotionale Befindlichkeit und Gesundheit des Menschen, ihre physiologischer Wirkung auf Geist, Körper und Seele als komplementäre Medizin sehr früh erkannt. Schon in den indischen Tempeln wurden bei den Zeremonien rhythmische Klänge auf Glocken, aus Hörnern und Muschelschalen verwendet, aus dem Wissen um ihre therapeutische Wirkung.

Musikalischer Klang, das sind Schwingungsmuster (Dwhani), eine energetische Form in Bewegung, die durch das Medium Luft (Vayu) übertragen wird und den menschlichen Körper bis in jede einzelne Zelle durchdringen kann. Im indischen Verständnis ist Musik eine energetische Form, eine kosmische/universelle Form als Quell allen Seins.

Klang besitzt heilende Kraft. Der Rhythmus in einer Musik steht in direkter Beziehung zum Herzschlag. Er findet seine Equivalenz im Tempo und Rhythmus. Der Atem entspricht im hinduistischen Verständnis dem Klang der Lebensenergie, Phrana. In der Geschichte der südindischen Klassik hat sich das uns heute bekannte Melakartasystem entwickelt. Es ist eine Klassifzierung von 72 Hauptragams… die Zahl 72 entspricht den 72 wichtigen Nervensträngen.

Die ältesten systematischen Texte, die man in der Menschheitsgeschichte kennt, sind die Veden. Es sind Abhandlungen über Philosophie, das Empfinden und Lebensweisheiten für ein gesundes Leben. Musik gehört zur Updaveda, einer untergeordneten Veda. Upaveda ist ein wissenschaftlich orientiertes System, das auf den vedischen Lehren aufbauen. Es gibt vier (4) Upavedas: 1. den Ayurveda (über Heilkunde); 2. den Gandharvaveda (über Musik, Tanz uns Ästhetik); 3. den Dhanurveda (über Bogenschießen, Kriegs- und Kampfkunst) und 4. den Sthapatyaveda (über Architektur, Stadtplanung etc.).

In unserem zweiten special zur India Music Week (IMW) Nada – Ein Konzept des Klangs (Sendetermine am 08.10. und 11.10.) befassen wir uns mit äusseren und inneren Klang, dem Klang-Yoga.  Diese Sendung ergänzt das Thema der heutigen Sendung an: “Energie des Klangs – Raga Chikitsa” . Es befasst sich explizit mit der therapeutischen Wirkung der Ragaskalen der nordindischen und südindischen Klassik.

Raga Chikitsa ist eine Schrift des antiken Indiens. In der Übersetzung heisst Raga Chikitsa: Das Wissen über die Verwendung der Ragas zum Zwecke der Heilung. Chikitsa stammt aus dem Sanskrit und bedeutet für sich: Die Praxis der medizinischen Wissenschaft und ihre therapeutische Anwendung.

Bringen wir das Wissen der indisch klassischen Musik – Raga Ragini Vidaya – und Raga Chikitsa zusammen, verfügen wir über die Grundbausteine, um die therapeutische Wirkung der indischen Ragas zu beschreiben.

————-

Ergänz. Hinweis: In der Samaveda, eine antike Schrift des Ayurveda werden Klangphänome für musiktherapeutische Zwecke detailliert beschrieben. Im ayurvedischen Verständnis wird der menschliche Körper von den drei Doshas dominiert: Vatta, Pitta und Kapha. Sie finden die Sendung “Ragas und ihr Zeitzyklus im ayurvedischen Verstaendnis” in unserem Sendearchiv unter http://www.imcradio.net/onlinearchiv .

A traveler’s guide to spa trends… Yoga & Music Therapy…

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on February 4, 2012

A traveler’s guide to spa trends

By Leanne Italie
Associated Press

Posted: 02/04/2012 12:00:00 AM PST (Updated: 02/04/2012 01:39:20 PM PST)

From color therapy to frigid blizzard rooms, fresh trends are surfacing around the world in the $60 billion spa industry.

As destination resorts, day spas and beauty salons shake off economic worries, new luxury is playing out in all price ranges, according to the annual 2012 trends report by SpaFinder, an online spa portal.

Past trends such as wellness pampering and organic treatments haven’t been replaced but are being joined by a broader range of multisensory experiences, foot-healing practices, ice-cold therapies and child-friendly options, says Susie Ellis, president of SpaFinder.

Look for more wow, fun and wellness, and for more spa options in Asia, which Ellis said leads the world in industry growth.
With more than 100,000 spas worldwide, making sense of often-pricey services can be difficult, along with tracking evidence that they work. A nearly year-old, industry-funded website, SpaEvidence.com, is a small but growing clearinghouse for clinical trials and published research on services ranging from yoga and music therapy to Ayurveda, the ancient holistic system of medicine from India, and “thalassotherapy,” the use of seaweed, algae and other materials from the sea.

“You are now moving from not only wellness but to wellness empowerment,” says Dr. Daniel Friedland, an internist and consultant who worked on the site.

Helping spa-goers hunt down research is a game-changer, especially now that more insurance companies and employers are willing to reimburse them for preventive care, Ellis says.

More from the SpaFinder report:

Cold and ice

With saunas, steam rooms, Whirlpool baths and rock massages, spas have traditionally used heat to de-stress and detoxify, but the industry is taking a cue from the Romans, who more than 2,000 years ago finished spalike experiences with a trip to the “frigidarium.”

Look for more ice therapies and cold rooms alternated with hot treatments to reduce pain and inflammation in muscles and joints, Ellis says.

At ESPA locations around the world, clients can scoop ice crystals from fountains to rub down after saunas. At the Qua Baths & Spa in Caesars Palace Las Vegas, visitors can head to the “arctic ice room” to sit amid falling snow as a more gentle transition from heat and steam than the usual cold plunge into a pool.

The luxury Dolder Grand in Zurich has a room for snowball fights.

Visitors to the AquaSpa at the golf resort the Belfry in the U.K.’s West Midlands can head to the “igloo” room and grab handfuls of ice for rubbing.

This month, spa designer Thermarium will introduce touch-screen technology allowing users to choose between light, moderate or blizzardlike snowfalls in cold rooms, SpaFinder says.

With cryotherapy, spa-goers in bathing suits wear protective socks, gloves, mouth and ear gear to avoid frostbite in rooms cooled to minus 184 degrees (visits last just moments).

The chambers are available at the new Sparkling Hill Resort & Spa in Vernon, British Columbia, and Champneys Tring Health Resort in Hertfordshire, England.

Elite athletes first took up cryotherapy. It’s earned mixed reviews from researchers for relieving pain and ailing muscles, but Mehmet Oz of “The Dr. Oz” show recently endorsed it. The first U.S. Cryotherapy Center, a 4,300-square foot facility in Roseville, outside Sacramento, opened in April.

Sensory experiences

Incorporating color, light, music and vibration as ambient afterthoughts is nothing new for the spa industry. Now they’re “becoming the main event,” the report says.

One innovation is software that creates real-time music, tones, beats and other sounds such as wind rustling and rivers to beats generated by a therapist’s movements in tandem with the client’s bodily responses during massages, SpaFinder said. The client leaves with a CD of the “well-being music-art” they helped create. The technology, MUUSA, is from Italy and in use at the Tombalo Talasso Resort in Castegneto Carducci in Tuscany.

During Aura-Soma, a client chooses four bottles of dual-colored liquid containing oils, flower essences and the “energy” of crystals for a reading of spiritual and emotional well-being, complete with a rubdown. Aura-Soma color readings are available in the United States at the Mii amo spa resort in Sedona, Ariz., and Qua at Caesars Palace Las Vegas, in addition to spas in the U.K., where the practice originated.

“I think you’ll see more of it,” Ellis says. “It’s quite an interesting new way of looking at and using color.”
Too far-fetched? Not far-fetched enough?

A Viennese artist who goes by the name “sha.” created canopied, cradlelike “tranquillity pods” for use in “AlphaSpheres” built into spas around the world, including Berlin’s Mandala Hotel ONO Spa and Bulgaria’s Kempinski Hotel’s Zalez facility. Guests are surrounded in blue light, sound and vibrations while they sway to the rhythms of their own breathing.

Happy feet

Chinese reflexology has been around for years. Now spas and wellness centers are targeting problems such as high-heel pain as part of menus for the feet.

Computerized analyses of your gait and foot treatments in zero-gravity chairs are available at the Canyon Ranch SpaClub in Las Vegas. New York City’s Yamuna studio has stiletto classes.

And the feet-only Stride in Palo Alto includes foot Botox to reduce odor and a “Walking on Clouds” treatment of filler injected into the ball of the foot for padding and pain reduction.

Yamuna Zake, the founder of Yamuna, uses small knobby spheres to condition aching feet and teach foot care. “You can’t get anywhere without those feet, yet they come with no education,” she says. “If you get it in your head what feet need, you can turn it around.”

The Mandarin Barber and Mandarin Salon in the Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong are targeting men for a traditional Chinese foot treatment involving 10 razor-sharp blades performed by masters Samuel So and Ben Cheung.

Family affair

More spas are accommodating adults and kids together. Kid-specific spas are also on the rise, Ellis says.

The Jiwa Spa Resort at Conrad Bali Hotel has a “Mum and Me” package, where kids choose from foot baths, foot masks, back massages or chocolate milk baths and get a bath toy to take home while Mom picks her own selection of facials and massages.
Some spas are adding Dad to the mix. Karma Resorts in Indonesia offers “father and son chill-out massages,” the report says.

At the Grand Wailea Resort Hotel & Spa in Maui, Hawaii, guests can book the “family spa suite” and treatments such as chocolate-coconut scrubs and massages for kids as young as 6. At Disney’s new family resort and spa Aulani on Oahu, the Laniwai Spa offers family suites; babies are welcome and young children can have massages.

Wows big and little

Some spas are trying to wow clients with unusual, eye-popping decor that defies traditional minimalism.

At the Boscolo Milano’s Atomic Spa Suisse in Italy, LED-illuminated mirrors cover treatment room interiors, sauna and baths for a bubbly champagne look. In Thailand, a luxurious rain forest wicker treehouse, “The Nest,” serves as a private spa suite suspended from the branches of a banyan tree at the Coqoon Spa at Indigo Pearl in Phuket. Canada’s Sparkling Hill Resort is adorned with 3.5 million Swarovski crystals and has crystal glass fireplaces.

Not all spas are Zen quiet or dead serious. The spa at Travassa Austin in Texas offers a workout on a mechanical bull. The CosquilleArte Spa in Madrid is the world’s first “tickle spa,” using feathers and light touch as stress-relievers during treatments.
