“When I started reading the old books about the foundation of music, I went all the way to even read about the Pharos and the Meds. Something that grabbed my attention was that they had used music to treat illnesses. I went deeper into this, and started treating illnesses myself playing a violin because it is an instrument that touches your soul and gives you peace. I have a friend that’s always stressed, I once asked him to come and have a cup of coffee with me. When he came, I saw that his hands were shaking so I told him to close his eyes, I will play him some music and asked for his opinion. When I started playing, I noticed his stress getting less, and I was sure that music can treat illnesses indeed. I researched more about it and saw that there are centers in Japan, United States, and even Dubai that work on healing through music. I can diagnose people through seeing their eyes and feeling their pulse, and then play them a piece of music.”
