Efficacy proven by clinical research

Music Care continually works to improve its applications through research.

To date, over thirty clinical studies and 150 abstracts were published by 20 university teams and research institutes worldwide.

The results of these clinical studies confirm the efficacy of our music care sessions in the field of pain and neurological disorders.

Research and development (R&D)

In the scope of our R&D, Music Care is also investigating the new emerging theories in the application of sound for therapeutic care. Music Care is able to incorporate those new emerging concepts in an attempt to measure and evaluate their potential.

Binaural beats

When signals of two different frequencies are presented separately, one to each ear, the brain detects the phase variation between the frequencies and tries to reconcile that difference. In doing so, as the two frequencies mesh in and out of phase, the brain creates its own third signal - called a binaural beat -, which is equal to the difference between those two frequencies. Several studies have suggested that binaural beats, which are perceived as a sound beat of low frequency, would have a positive effect on psychological disorders such as anxiety.


French physist, Joel Sternheimer, offers a new explanation of biological effect of music. His work suggests that music could directly influence the protein synthesis. From his work was created a method called "proteodies" which was used successfully in the agricultural field but could also have an interest for the medical field.

432 Hz Tuning

Most music worldwide has been tuned to A=440 Hz since the International Standards Organization (ISO) promoted it in 1953. However, when looking at the vibratory nature of the universe, it's possible that this pitch is disharmonious with the natural resonance of nature and may generate negative effects on human behaviour and consciousness. Several writers have suggested that the use of the 432 Hz tuning could improve the effect of music on the human being. Even if nothing has been proven yet, Music Care is exploring those claims in order to validate their effects at a clinical level.
