New York, NY (PRWEB) September 17, 2007
Many people who suffer from stress and who want to perform better can accomplish this by making music a part of their daily regime. Jay P. Granat, Ph.D., has found that many of his patients and many top athletes respond better to Motown tunes than they do to new age tunes.
"Some patients get more stress relief with upbeat, energizing Motown tunes than they get with New Age melodies that have traditionally been used by many therapists in the past. Motown brings back fond memories to many middle aged patients. It gets them laughing, smiling and dancing. These are all great stress management techniques and this form of music seems to help patients to make contact with upbeat, optimistic and playful thoughts and feelings that can really change the way we feel, behave and perform," according to Dr. Jay Granat.
"Additionally, many athletes use music to get their minds into the right gear prior to competing in their sports. A number of the athletes I have coached love Motown tunes too," says Granat who is himself a big fan of The Four Tops, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and The Supremes.
