Who would have thought that the noise of the hair dryer could hook you! Yes, and a lot. Many become addicts to the noise. Who knows what would think Alexandre Godefoy, the French hairdresser who invented the device in 1890. The hum is monotonous and has a reassuring effect. According to those “addicts”, it isolates the person from the surrounding noises. It has no ups and downs, so it relaxes them and makes it possible to sleep.
The British medical journal of pediatrics “Archives of Disease in Childhood” analyzed the effect of white noises, such as that of the hair dryer, on infants. Two groups of 20 babies each were formed: 80% of them fell asleep within five minutes of sounding.
Other people use their noise when they are nervous. In case of hyperactive people, the sound deeply relaxes them and helps them sleep like babies. They love their continuous and keen frequency. It seems that the frequency which the hair dryer emits exerts a barrier of thoughts.
Although it is very common in babies, it is still rare to find cases very often in adults. It is also a good pain reliever for those who suffer from their partner’s snoring. The noise makes you forget those annoying sounds.
A book that has caught our attention is “The Therapy of the Hair Dryer”, written by physiotherapist and follower of traditional Chinese medicine, Liu Zheng, who offers us another utility: in Chinese medicine, there is a technique similar to acupuncture called moxibustion. It stimulates the weak points of the body with hot air. For this reason, the Chinese expert and owner of the Madrid acupuncture clinic Medizen, uses the hair dryer. The technique activates the blood fluid, relaxes the muscles and helps recovery from injuries. Ideal for contractures in the neck, she takes the dryer and points the hot air to that area. In a few minutes, the pain calms down. And if your dryer is GIUBRA, much better.
