But why exactly Mozart? Why not Bach, not Beethoven, not the Beatles? Mozart did not create the stunning effects that Bach’s mathematical genius was capable of. His music does not make waves of emotions like Beethoven’s works. It does not relax the body like folk tunes and does not set it in motion under the influence of the music of the “stars” of rock. So what’s the deal then? Probably that Mozart remains both mysterious and accessible. His mind, charm and simplicity make us wiser.
Mozart’s music helps many to find peace of mind. If it restores the energy balance and harmony in the body, it performs the function that all medical systems strive for. Acupuncture, herbal medicine, dietetics and other methods are aimed precisely at restoring the energy balance, which we call health.

Musical rhythms are known to affect the rhythms of the nervous system, which regulate the vast biological landscape within our body. It is therefore not difficult to understand how important the simplicity and clarity of Mozart’s music is for our emotions and for the whole organism.

The situation is the same with music. Its diversity gives us a wealth of sensations, but only certain forms streamline and stabilize our feelings. Tomatis is convinced that Mozart’s music is unparalleled in its ability to bring harmony to the human soul. He uses Mozart, as his works purify better than any other music. In the case of Depardieu, it was precisely the set of vibrations that his body needed most of all. According to Tomatis, Mozart’s works are a perfectly balanced musical “dish” containing all the necessary components.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – a child with a prophetic gift, who wrote operas, symphonies, concerts and sonatas for piano, music for organ, clarinet and other instruments before he was twelve years old, and seemed to know that he was destined to die young, left the world has the most amazing and harmonious musical vibrations, whose healing power has yet to be appreciated by us and our descendants.

Then a number of scientists studied the influence of Mozart’s works on the mental potential of students and increasing their ability to absorb program material.
“Mozart’s music can“ warm up ”the brain,” says one of the researchers. He believes that Mozart’s music undoubtedly has a positive impact on the processes of higher brain activity required for mathematics and chess. After the publication of the results of these studies, buyers literally dared Mozart’s works from the shelves of music stores. However, not only Mozart’s music has certain effects.
