You just need to remember that any such rhythm, responding in the nervous system, can cause resonance phenomena in the most unexpected points of the body. Physiologists know the vibration frequencies characteristic of various organs and systems, and such a resonance is far from always useful.

Biophysical resonance explains, for example, both the well-known effects of infrasound and the action of "audio drugs" that became known several years ago.

Because when a person perceives a rhythm and enjoys it, he synchronizes it with the motor parts of the brain. Apparently, the brain interprets this as a positive stimulus and responds with a sense of pleasure. It is believed that this fact is related to the range of intervals that we are able to perceive as a rhythm: usually from 30 to 300 beats per minute. The most comfortable rhythms - from about 70 to 120 - synchronize well with the movements we are used to: walking, breathing, shaking the head, and so on. The faster ones are synchronized with the movements of the lips and fingers. I wrote more about this here: mtrpl.ru
