    Why Drumming?

    The Rhythm of the Drum touches something deep inside us, which makes it a powerful tool for healing and personal transformation. We all have a natural rhythm and if its out of alignment with our life rhythm, we feel discomfort and imbalance in ourselves. If you are constantly in a faster rhythm (stress and anxiety), your system can be out of balance and this can lead to dis-ease.

    Have you ever tried a drumming cardio class or participated in a drum circle? Drumming releases endorphins, enkephalins and Alpha waves in the brain, which are associated with general feelings of well-being and euphoria, which may help people who suffer from mental illness.

    As stated By Michael Drake:

    Drum therapy is an ancient approach that uses rhythm to promote healing and self-expression. From the shamans of Mongolia to the Minianka healers of West Africa, therapeutic rhythm techniques have been used for thousands of years to create and maintain physical, mental, and spiritual health.”

    The benefitsare endless! Drumming has so many benefits that have been recognised throughout the ages and is very much alive today as evidenced by the number of drumming circles emerging daily. It calms, focuses, treats stress, fatigue and a wide range of mental health issues. It can help with chronic pain and can boost your immune system. The drumbeat evokes many powerful forms of energy and is an aid in helping to focus one’s attention and to see clear intentions.

    It provides people with a connection, which is sorely missed in these modern times. As our community disintegrates and becomes more fragmented - people become more socially isolated, suffer from a lack of direct interaction with others - social bonds are weakening and our society is becoming less cohesive. Worry over the tyranny of community has been replaced with a worry at the lack of cohesion and feeling of belonging. Therefore to have a powerfully connecting activity like drumming is important and essential. You can feel a deep connection with something beyond yourself, you connect with others through the rhythm and the group creates something greater than themselves. Read more on this article here.

    • Drumming boosts the immune system
    • It reduces stress and anxiety
    • Creates a sense of calmness
    • Releases negative feelings
    • Can help chronic pain
    • Aids to aleviate depression

  • What is drum therapy? Where can I get meaningful training?

    ‘We moderns are the last people on the planet to uncover what older cultures have known for thousands of years: The act of drumming contains a therapeutic potential to relax the tense, energize the tired, and soothe the emotionally wounded.’

    So says Gary Diggins, an Ontario sound therapist. Read more here…..

    All expressive therapies have one common thread: human emotion and creativity. Throughout history healers didn’t just use drumming and ritual to heal, they used many different aspects of self discovery to bring their people on a healing journey.

     

    Drumming was, however, one of the most important aspects of this healingand used in combination with other modalities to aid in the recovery of their people. Nowadays the discussion continues in the therapy world about the importance of in-depth training.

     

    With regards to drum therapy, a flirtation with drumming is not enough. Only a love of drumming can lead to a felt experience and formed expression. While many therapists are familiar with several therapies, most tend to specialise in one or two that they are trained in and that meet the needs and situation of their clients. Self-expression through drumming, movement, or percussion can remind us of past experiences and even be cleansing for some, but it has been recognised the ability of drumming to contain self expression rather than to retraumatise or cause repetition of troubling memories. When a person works with a drum therapist, they work together where their self expression through drumming is used as a container for feelings, an opportunity to see life from a different perspective, through a different lens and therefore can deepen into a greater self understanding which can transform, heal the individual emotionally, resolve internal conflict and will provide an overall sense of well-being.

     


    ‘Drumming Therapy taps into layers of the mind and body that other modalities cannot. Studies have shown that repetitive drumming changes brain wave activity, inducing a state of calm and focused awareness.’
