The Music

The Music at the Chair Master Shop

Music provides spark, incentive, emotional connection, rhythm, and timing. By linking the activities to specific songs, it becomes easy to know when to move on to another activity.
Music CD’s add an element of fun and ease to the actions. My early research on the use of music during exercise with extremely frail elders revealed that participants experienced less pain and had a greater range of motion when music accompanied the same activities. For group leaders, each music source has a matched list “sorting” the order of exercises to make it easy to have variety from one session to the next. The order and mix of exercises is always scientifically sound.
