At the height of the mid-east uprising of 2000, Eliana Gilad initiated the world’s first live healing music project in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). A healing voice and therapeutic singing modality evolved for stress reduction and remaining relaxed and focused in the midst of uncertain change.
Necessity is the Mother of Invention.
The hospital serves a 50/50% Jewish-Arab population. In the best of circumstances, the environment is stressed. During political strife, tension was of epidemic proportions.
The fully funded three year medical research project, proved that live wordless singing and constant rhythm lowers blood pressure, reduces heart rate, increases focus and improves quality of sleep amongst the neonates. Parents and caretakers received healing music programs for stress reduction in the waiting room, while medical staff benefited as well.
Voices of Eden approach is truly universal, bridging cultures and tongues, east and west.
Eliana and Dr. Masaru Emoto presented together at a water conference an the Shores of Galilee in 2004. Emoto expressed interest in researching this ancient healing and transformational music.
“The resultant water crystal showing the positive vibratory effect of Voices of Eden healing music is one of the most beautiful to be formed in our laboratories.” Dr. Masaru Emoto
Beginning of the research and learn how it evolved.
In 2006 an energetic neurological test, evaluating both right and left brain hemispheres Konstantin Pavlides, using the technology of Dr. Konstantin Karatkov, (whose work is applied in all of the major HMO clinics of the former Soviet Union countries), discovered the balancing properties of this five element sound application, used to relieve physically handicapped youth traumatized by the after-shock of war.
In 2010, Eliana was invited to a round table of NICU music experts in a ground breaking project at Louis Armstrong Beth Israel Medical Center in New York to develop healing music training for music therapists in the NICU setting, where she also presented at the Chopra Wellness Center.
