Any ideas? I think listening regularly relaxation music may have permanent effects at brain regard to stress relief. Have you tried? Which recording preferably free would you recommend?

not a single recommendation? something like brainwave entrainment for powerful relaxation, would you recommend neuroprogrammer?

Tempo of the music is directly related to the relaxation of the mind. I find personally that some good classical music or even Trance does the trick. Personal favorite albums include BT- "Binary Universe", "These Hopeful Machines" and "ESCM." For the Classical relaxation promotion variety I would recommend "Classical Relaxation" by Lumiere String Quartet or even some Samuel Barber.

I've never come across any research suggesting certain sounds help heal the brain although there are many programs out there that supposedly promote "brain functioning" while listening to the music. Holosync is one product that I've used while meditating, it's nice but I wouldn't say it's any better than a "meditation" cd you could find at walmart. Just a bunch of bells and natural sounds mixed with a little ambient music. I think the best you'll get for promoting brain functioning in the lines of music are just types of music that promote performance while listening.

Find some self-hypnosis sessions. It takes a little practice (and is pretty hard if you have ADD), but can have a much more profound relaxing effect than relaxation music or brain entrainment (like holosync).

Also, it's probably not necessary to bump your threads if you don't get a reply in a few hours. It's hot enough outside that the forum is pretty slow atm.

I have found the CD's by "Effective Learning Systems" to be very relaxing www.effectivelearningsystems.com/. They have a free MP3 you can download titled "Alpha Break".

I find that numerous different styles and genres of music can have different kinds of relaxing effects.

Trance Albums: A State of Trance (Armin Van Buuren) Volumes 2004-2010, Anjunabeats (Above & Beyond) Volumes 1-8, Night Music (The Thrillseekers) Volumes 1-3, In Search of Sunrise (Dj Tiesto/Richard Durand) Volumes 1-8
Trance is great for getting into a relaxed state of mind while doing a task such as driving, cleaning, exercising, contemplating things.

Also artists such as: Air (great for just chillen), Ulrich Schnauss (great for deep relaxation and thought), Euphoria, Steve Roach (great for total clearing of the mind), Ozric Tentacles (a more upbeat psychedelic relaxation), Andy McKee (Relaxing acoustic music), Phoenix/The Kooks/Silversun Pickups/Falling Up (Indie rock that is a good change from the more hardcore rock), 311 (Songs like Champagne, Stealing Happy Hours, Love Song, Amber), Sunlounger (Trancey chillout tunes), Pogo (Can be relaxing if you get used to the chopped up samples style) Deadmau5 (Songs like I Remember, Jaded).

Other genres to consider: Psychedelic Trance, Deep House, Progressive House, Indie Rock

And of course there is iDoser which I don't know if it works, I have yet to check it out.

Although these aren't extremely deeply relaxing suggestions, listening to them throughout your day if you don't have time for the intense mp3's will definitely make you feel more calm, happy, and at peace throughout the day.

iDoser is good. You can pretty much download anything there. The sleep ones are pretty good and work everytime for me (they can last up to 45 minutes). I never got around to downloading any for relaxation purposes but they have pretty much everything there (including drug states if that's your thing)

Debussey, particularly Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, Grieg, some Beethoven and Tchaikovsky, Brahms,
The seam that lies between late Romantic and Early Modern is probably the best place to find the compositions you are looking for.
The richness and depth, soaring heights and lowest lows, all still deeply rooted in the western tonal system so as to not be too jarring, and yet not too early, not too Classical or Baroque, so as to be too quaint, too dated, or almost cold, as far as Baroque goes.
It must soothe first before inducing relaxation.

I do enjoy dream trance on occasion but do not think it is particularly relaxing, except in an artificial sense, like taking medication more than tensing and then relaxing every fiber of your existence.
Just because a beat is slow and the crescendo barely discernible does not mean that it will relax and de-stress you!
Trip hop is probably more deeply attuned to relieve stress than any other form of electronic music.

And, though seriously cliched, nature sounds are efficacious. But, they have to be authentic and the sound recording excellent. Someone has to literally walk into the woods to and to a stream with a high quality stereo microphone, set it down and record for 6 hours to get something of value. Anything less, like repeated loops, will disconcert and produce an opposite effect than what is desired.

Cheers and enjoy the weekend.

I'll second selfhypnosis, and also recommend beatless ambient (you can find a whole lot of albums for free on jamendo or a netlabel that specialises in that genre, earthmantra.com for example)

Also: http://www.rainymood.com/

Will take a while to learn it, but it's rather easy and the results are stunning, or were at least to me.

I love trance and particularly Armin Van Burren & Tiesto, but certainly don't find them relaxing.

Ambient music is my choice to relax to...I also like a lot of Jean Michel Jarre, some of his music is very relaxing even hypnotic.

And this track takes some beating...Pure ambience...Check it out...Awesome!

I can understand that trance may not have the same deep relaxation effect that Brian Eno and Steve Roach would have, but it can definitely be considered relaxing if you listen to the right trance songs. Some trance songs are way too intense to be relaxing or too upbeat. As a side note, I didn't recommend the artists Armin Van Buuren and DJ Tiesto but instead I recommended music from those albums I listed.

Here are some examples of indisputably relaxing trance songs (at least when compared to the rest of trance):

"The Lost Chord" and other CDs by Jonathan Goldman... also "Chakra Chants", "Infinite Om". are his best IMO. Constructed from many many many simultaneous layers of human chanting and singing, instumentals and drones, beat-sync elements, all very expertly layered together. The Lost Chord is especially amazing, creating an almost instant state of altered consciousness and feel of being in a Sacred Space, it ascends and descends the chakra frequencies, each track has a very distinct sound, so its not all too "same" and boring, really keeps your interest with its astounding complexity.

This guy is a genius and the best in the world at making these sort of discs.

Thanks a lot for posting this. I've been doing this exercise since I was about 11, but I never knew what the name was, and progressive muscle relaxation was the closest thing I was able to find to it. I've been getting back into self-hypnosis the past few months, so I'm glad I know what it's called now.

Definitely recommended.

I find music by an artist "Erez Yaary" to be particularly relaxing.
Not too sure about the genre but it's something like trance I suppose.

Probably one of my favourites, Solar Voyage IV from his Solar Voyages album:
