Darwin, Australia – Australian Nature Sounds(C) has announced the launch of its ‘Back to Nature’ iPhone app, which features recordings of 100% authentic nature sounds of Australian rainforests, deserts, beaches and the birds and animals of Australia to help listeners relax, reduce anxiety levels and to aid with sleeping problems. ‘Back to Nature’ is the result of Dr. Eric Fassbender’s professional research and his desire to bring relaxation and wellness to people who do not have easy access to natural surroundings from where they are living.
The studies that Dr. Fassbender conducted on the effects of music and nature sounds on the body and mind suggest what a lot of neuroscientists confirm: that spending time in nature recharges our batteries, reduces fatigue and stress and improves overall feelings of wellness and happiness. This understanding of how nature sounds affect our mind and body goes back for centuries when natural healers and shamans used nature sounds to enhance healing. The sounds of ocean waves, the chirping of birds or rain falling in a forest can help reduce stress and bring about health benefits like lowering blood pressure and reducing the risk of cardiac arrests and strokes. Furthermore, listening to authentic nature sounds is outstandingly effective to help people who are suffering from sleeping problems/insomnia and to soothe your baby, whether in the cot or in the womb.
Listening to nature sounds is becoming increasingly important in today’s busy world where noises from the outside world intrude more and more into our minds. The authentic sounds of ‘Back to Nature’ are not merely magically captivating but physiotherapists as well as meditation and yoga instructors find that using these recordings greatly enhances the effects of body therapies and anti-stress techniques. With this new offering on Apple’s iTunes, anyone who has an active iTunes account can download the quality recordings to their iPad or iPhone that runs an operating system upwards of iOS 4.0. For listeners without an iOS device the nature sound albums are also available for download on the Australian Nature Sounds website.
Categorized as a lifestyle app on Apples’s iTunes, ‘Back to Nature’ is a high-quality app that utilizes the sounds of nature as an aid to relax, de-stress and sleep. Although ‘Back to Nature’ has been available for download since September 2012, it is only now that Dr. Fassbender makes his sounds available to a greater audience. The download of 112 MB is rather large, however, this is due to the authentic high-quality sounds, instead of the artificial loops that many of the other apps utilize. The free version of ‘Back to Nature’ features one and a half minutes of demos for each track. 30 minute and full albums versions (over 67 minutes) are available as in-app purchases for $3.99 and $7.99, respectively.
