Music for Massage, Yoga, Relaxation, and Contemplation

"Michael Strening Jr.'s Falling Water: Music For Relaxation is a collection of piano solos he composed specifically for massage therapy. (A Chicago schoolteacher by day, Strening was able to return to his piano playing after massage therapy helped his carpal tunnel syndrome, and this collection is part of his payback.) Put on these nine original songs—romantic melodies played with grace and finesse—and let the music work its quiet magic, relaxing and unwinding tension in the room and within the listener. Strening's luminous melodies embody the intuitive skill and gentle healing of many massage modalities. The synergy between the two art forms—music and massage—makes this collection an exquisitely sensitive companion to healing work."

— Clare La Plante, Massage Therapy Journal, Winter 2009

"Michael composes and records music for massage therapy, having found this calling when massage therapy provided clinical and quantitative healing which literally saved his music career. ... With each new play, you'll notice another layer you missed previously."

"I am not a professional music reviewer, but I will tell you why these albums are great for a massage. Both albums are piano solos. Nothing more. Simple and easy. Both albums are over 75 minutes. One is not better than the other in my opinion, both are equally impressive. This is music a majority of clients will appreciate. It is not New Age, ocean noises, Celtic drums, Indian guitar, or a babbling brook. Just beautiful piano solos. Like a massage, the music is soothing, therapeutic, and calming from beginning to end.This is music a majority of clients will appreciate.
