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.
Current research is now verifying the therapeutic effects of ancient rhythm techniques. Recent research reviews indicate that drumming accelerates physical healing, boosts the immune system and produces feelings of well-being, a release of emotional trauma, and reintegration of self.
Using the energy of drumming requires focus, visualization, and intent.
These three things can, when synchronized, with the rhythm of the energy you create when drumming, cause wonderful changes to happen all around you.
Each tone the drum makes is a different vibration. Each vibration corresponds to an energy type.
The nature of the combination of the tones and their rhythm and order all determine the type of energy you raise.
These sessions are usually done with frame drums.
