Enjoy a healthy, balanced life and abundant musical success.

Become the powerful artist you are meant to be!

March 21, 2024

An Australian study demonstrated that 84% (!!) of professional orchestral musicians experienced enough pain, performance anxiety, and/or depression to cause them to miss work. 😲

Even more surprising: the same study concluded that…“a physically based treatment that doesn’t also address associated anxiety and depression might not be effective.

What does that mean?

It means that if you want to find a truly effective and lasting approach to overall healing and well-being, you need to look at the whole person, not just the body.

If you’ve experienced pain, you’ve probably tried to solve it in one or more of the following ways:

📍Make adjustments to your technique that compromise the quality of your music

📍Meditation or breathing techniques

📍Exercises, massage, or chiropractic

📍A doctor’s visit to get a prescription and possibly surgery down the road (NOTE: if you’re considering surgery, I implore you to try my approach before saying yes to the scalpel!! I’ve helped many people avoid unnecessary surgery naturally.)

NONE of the above partial approaches will really get to the root of your problem and solve it for good, though, because the origin of the problem is holistic in nature…

…and NONE of them can help you understand precisely why you need to change the way you approach your instrument and how to do it for maximum ease and artistic mastery – and minimum tension – which is always deeply connected to the source of the problem.

Nobody tells you where you REALLY need to go first to initiate true healing…

…which is… INSIDE. 💎

The first thing anybody in pain needs to do is pause, reflect, and…

🔥Get in touch with your inner Wisdom. 🔥

You need to a conversation with your body. Not an angry, fearful argument that labels your back or arm or neck as “bad”. Have a connecting conversation that’s more interested in listening and gathering information than blaming and controlling and trying to change yourself.

Your body has untold hidden resources for self-healing, waiting to be tapped by you, if you will only learn how to listen. 🎁

But you’ll never be able to access those if your mind is in chaos, full of noisy clutter, fear, self-critical admonitions and shame.

If you can’t hear what your body is trying to tell you as it whines with discomfort or screams to you in pain, then you absolutely need to learn (1) how to quiet your nervous system enough to listen to it; (2) how to decipher its messages; (3) what to do with the information you pick up.

In short, you need excellent, fully conscious mind-body skills to get your stressed and anxious ego out of the way so your energy can flow, heal, and create from your heart.

Because, even though overcoming pain, anxiety, or depression are incredibly important, you don’t just want to stop suffering; you want to THRIVE in every aspect of your life and become the best musician you can be!💥 🏆🎻

Knowing how sorely lacking and myopic most teachers and therapeutic approaches to musicians’ care are, is what led me to create The Art of Freedom® Method for conscious living and masterful artistry.

My method teaches you how to simplify and integrate every aspect of who you are directly with your music-making, using my 5 Life Pillars: Purpose, Mind, Body, Spirit, and Artistry, so that you can get in touch with your own inner wisdom and start healing your whole self from WITHIN.

Using my method, you’ll learn a powerfully simple, step-by-step process that enables you to access creative flow with excellent mind-body coordination to promote your own well-being…

…without doing stretches and exercises that can make your pain worse

…without drugs or risky surgeries

…without depending on advice from people who don’t understand how you actually play your instrument.

You’ll finally be able to release the physical and mental blockages preventing you from being and expressing the radiant Truth of who you are, and make better and better music with effortlessness and JOY.

It’s time to stop suffering and start enjoying a healthy, balanced life and abundant musical success.

If you want to learn more about The Art of Freedom® Method for conscious living and masterful artistry and stop suffering needlessly for your art, message me or email me at Jennifer@ArtofFreedom.me.

I have a great offer for accomplished musicians who – despite working hard and having tried just about everything out there to feel better and play better – still know that there’s something missing and the quality of their playing can be improved – and who are ready to experience much more freedom, ease and joy while making music.

Just message me here or email me at Jennifer@ArtofFreedom.me for information, and we’ll have a chat to see what would be the best fit for you! 💬
