Birdsong is great for relaxation and reducing stress or anxiety.

Benefits of Birdsong

Birdsong is great for helping you to relax, especially when feeling anxious or stressed.

"My husband and I, before he died, used to go to the spa together and the sound playing in the room was birdsong. It used to help us both to relax in what was a very stressful time. It definitely works." - relative of a brain tumour patient, September 2020.
