Therapeutic music can transform how you feel
Receptive music therapy plays a positive psychological role in mental and emotional health, stress, sleep, focus and healing. When we listen intentionally, we can meet or enhance our personal and professional goals. Backed by science and emboldened by spirit or faith, music makes us whole. On some level we all know this intuitively.
Mishi takes the potency of music further by letting you customise each track to your own unique needs. We are proud to be the first dedicated music wellness platform with a full set of modalities from the ancient to the modern. We are driven by social values, with a free tier and/or trial, volume discounts and charity pricing. All our music is made by us, for you, with heart and soul.
We believe that music offers a more effortless and natural way to release stress and improve the brain chemicals and neurotransmitters necessary for restorative rest and holistic health. We invite you to discover what therapeutic music can do for you.
Everyone's music medicine is unique
With 14 music categories, 40 soundscapes and 6 nature sounds
there are unlimited combinations of music. Tune in to your own bio-rhythms, zone out with mindfulness, or set intentions with bells, bowls or beats.
Some listeners find adding a mesmerising motion video enhances their experience by making it multi-sensory. (Aroma and fresh air make wonderful accompaniments too!). Others play Mishi music in the background for a subliminal shift in mood.
Wellness at work and in life
Music therapy is highly accessible and complementary but often under-utilised, especially in the workplace.
We spend a third of our waking lives at work with more and more of us at a desk, with reduced movement, limited human interaction, and almost continuous time at the screen. Serious health issues are inevitably set to increase from the way we unconsciously work. The lines between work and home, in fact life, are blurred and balance is key.
Music is psychologically soothing at work, can reduce stress and eliminate fatigue, and creates a more relaxed and comfortable environment. It fosters creativity and productivity.
Beyond work the average screen time per UK adult is a further 5 hours! Too much screen time not only impacts mental health, but physical health as well, including eye problems, poor posture and muscle strains.
Music outside of work can break the pattern of screen compulsion and help people tune in with their physical, emotional and mental needs. In turn, it helps them to improve their work performance and enjoyment. This is what most of us want: to work well, achieve more and enjoy our business day.
