INTRODUCTION: Receptive music therapy (rMT) not only provides a good feeling but also a more effective healing process and mastery of stress. METHODS AND RESULTS: In a preliminary study it could be shown that American Doudouk-music (feel-good music) suppressed salivary histamine secretion in two groups (n = 4) of allergic and non-allergic young volunteers. Stress was induced by eating adverse food/allergenic food during music exposure. There was no response in the vein blood samples and no significant difference between the allergic and non-allergic groups. CONCLUSION: It can be concluded that saliva is an appropriate medium for histamine measurements during music exposure.
