The benefits of drumming
The scientific facts
Drumming synchronises the left and right brain, Drumming accesses the whole brain. The sound of drumming generates dynamic neuronal connections in all parts of the brain even where there is significant damage or impairment such as ADD.
The more connections that can be made within the brain, the more integrated our experiences become. There is no age limit on drumming.
Drumming induces natural altered states of consciousness which have a wide range of therapeutic applications. A brief session of drumming can double Alpha brain wave activity dramatically, reducing stress. The brain changes from Beta waves to Alpha waves producing feelings of euphoria and well being. Alpha activity is associated with meditation.
The actual physical vibration of the drum plays a huge part in the healing process. The vibration penetrates our own energy field and gently pushes against emotions thoughts and feelings that no longer serve us which enables us to release them.
After a session of drumming, you will most definitely feel lighter and more in control of your own life.
It is also a wonderful way to get connected.
