AllMusic Review by

Music for Healthy Living is a three-disc compilation of music designed for stress relief, relaxation, and sleep inducement. Pairing natural sound recordings of rain, running streams, and ocean waves with languid synthesizer and piano melodies, two of the discs in this set contain music by new age veteran David Bradstreet, a Canadian composer who formerly recorded for the successful Solitudes series. Bradstreet's gentle melodies slowly evolve over long-form mood pieces that last nearly 15 minutes each. The middle disc features music by new age artist Ron Allen. Allen has also composed for the Solitudes series, and his music also pairs natural sound effects with the tranquil music of the native flute. The three discs combined contain about two hours' worth of unobtrusive and serene music that will slow the pulse and calm the soul.
