After the nuclear accident at Chernobyl many children developed blood pressure too high for their age norm. Having already observed a decrease in high blood pressure in pregnant women during Medical Resonance Therapy Music (Gerasimovich, Einysh, 1999; Gerasimovich, Sidorenko, 1995; Sidorenko, Tetiorkina, Korotkov, 1997) we studied the effects of the Medical Resonance Therapy Music[R] (MRT-Music) on such children--with very positive results: the treatment with the music preparations demonstrated a clear sympatholythic effect and led the disturbed haemodynamic state back to its healthy age norm.
Patients and methods
Sixty children with different degrees of initial sympatheticotonia in the children's hospital No. 3 in Minsk were studied. Two groups were examined: one group of 32 children with an absolute sympatheticotonia, in which 75 to 100 percent of the initial autonomic tonus were built by the sympathetic part of the autonomic …
