12 Musicians And Music Recommendations For Empaths And Sensitive People

Music For Empaths Sensitive People

Everyone tends to enjoy music from different perspectives, some may like the song, some likes the lyrics and some may prefer the tune. For empaths, music is a virtual human presence, a stimulus that connects them to the original roots of empathy. For sensitive people, music is a way of healing. So give yourself the opportunity to heal. Here is the list of top healing music for empaths and sensitive people.

Music and Empaths

Empathic people love music. It is a balm for their sensitive soul. Listening to it, playing it, admiring it. Music can wash over and nurture you. It can elevate your spirit. I am excited to share my favorites with you and hope you enjoy my picks and that they enhance your peace of mind.  

Music therapy has been used to treat depression, anxiety, and chronic pain. Neuroscientists have found that tranquil music increases positive emotions and stimulates dopamine, the brain’s pleasure hormone–and that highly sensitive people may respond to music similarly to how they experience empathy.

I am excited to share my favorites with you and hope you enjoy my picks and that they enhance the peace in your body and soul. Let yourself dance to the music, meditate to it and let it lift you up beyond the details of everyday life to the realm of inspiration and the muse. More information about music as a form of self-care is in my book “Thriving as an Empath”.
