What is Drumming Therapy

Drumming therapy, or drumming, is an approach that has been around since ancient times. This approach to healing focuses on self-expression. This therapy has been used for thousands of years to strengthen and maintain physical, mental, and spiritual health. Research shows drumming can have a therapeutic effect because it produces:

  • Feelings of well-being
  • Boosts immunity
  • Promotes healing physically
  • Encourages people to release inner trauma
  • Helps them relax

Part of Recovery

Participation in drum therapy can be very rewarding. People sit in a circle and drum to different types of music like jazz, rock, blues, and more. Sometimes the hands are making noise like using drumsticks. People may sing or clap to musical beats. When people get into it, they can release their inner emotions and stress. They may even go into a meditative state or practice mindfulness. Drumming offers a lot of individual benefits as a group activity and encourages people to work together as a team to communicate. Some of the benefits include:

  • Stress reduction
  • Relieve chronic pain
  • Boost immunity
  • Access the brain and empower it
  • Promote deeper awareness
  • Encourage connectedness with others
  • Connect to a source or higher power
  • Connect with a higher power
  • Release negative feelings, emotions and trauma
