A winning assortment of time-tested and drug‐free musical remedies for a wide variety of common ailments Ö ranging from mental and physical lethargy through a bad case of the blues to that up‐tight, jittery feeling (among many other maladies). Itís good for what ails you!

Ever since psychologist Amelia Haygood founded Delos in 1973, the company has been inspired by the concept of great music as therapy. As a reminder of that insightful founding principle, we offer - in Delosí 40th Anniversary year - a set of three carefully compiled 'Wellness' CDs, each of which is expertly formulated to alleviate different afflictions of the body, mind and spirit! These are: Laugh with Classical Music, Classical Caffeine and Classical Chamomile.

All musical selections have been chosen for both their proven 'medicinal' benefits and the outstanding artistry and technical quality of their performances.
