Trauma therapy is.................. exhausting

I’ve never found any peace in earphones, I’m envious of you, as I’ve always found peace with music pouring through me so loud my bones could feel it. Whether in a vehicle, or all but curled up inside of -or dancing on top of- a speaker as big as I am.
For me some beats feel like a brain massage. I love deep bases. Recently I learned about binaural music where it plays left and right side alternately. Haven't found any tracks that I would like though.

Self tapping therapy works well too. I find in conjunction with music it works really well. There is a way to "reset" working memory using tapping that my first T taught me. I don't use it often because it feels like making good solid contact with 220V to me. (Don't ask how I know...)

I like turning the music up until I feel it - which is why I have car and home systems that will play it loud enough you can feel it.....
 
Finding the same sense of relief/release/rightness with earphones would HUGELY open up that coping mechanism.
I do this! Didn't realise it was a thing, but only coping mechanism for me so far pretty much..... Asking with cleaning, cleaning and blasting my ears.

Was going to say that I use over ear, nose cancelling headphones, really soft ones, perfect.
