'Relaxation Suite,' Latest CD from Steven Halpern

Steven Halpern, the multi-million selling recording artist, composer, producer and pioneering sound healer, today released Relaxation Suite, the latest achievement in a 33-year career of contemporary instrumental, ambient and atmospheric music for physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

RELAXATION SUITE offers 70 minutes of deep physical relaxation, stress relief and inner peace. Featuring Grammy -nominated cellist and composer David Darling, whose soulful cello joins Halpern's grand piano and Rhodes' electric piano to create an experience that is as beautiful as it is effective.

"From the very first notes, listeners find themselves breathing more deeply, and tension in the neck and shoulders melts away, " said Halpern. "Within moments, they feel relaxed and at peace."

Halpern's latest release taps into a growing concern about the pervasive and health-damaging effects of stress on hypertension, heart disease, depleted immunity, and sleeplessness. His music has been tested alongside the most relaxing classical music and has proven significantly more effective at reducing stress and creating a sense of inner calm.

"Steven's music represents a more cost-effective choice when someone wants to use the ancient healing art of music to heal and promote health and wellbeing, " said Amy Gordon-Fisher, CEO of MedCalm, a leading audio/video provider for hospitals, hospices and other caregiving environments. "People in all walks of life are recognizing the power of music and Steven Halpern's recordings in particular as he continues to set the standard of excellence in the field after 30-plus years."
