Sound Healing Using Drumming

Sound Healing – Drumming


Why is drumming therapeutic?


Drums are among the oldest and most widespread instruments in the world, most ancient cultures used drums in varying forms in story telling, healing ceremony and ritual for their rhythmic, hypnotic qualities and for their ability to unite and motivate us – it’s all in the rhythm!


The deep resonant tones are very grounding while the repetition of a steady beat is very hypnotic and leads our brain into its meditation state as all primordial sounds do and this is where deep healing can take place.


Shaman and traditional medicine men were very aware of this and used drums to take those who needed rebalancing to altered states through the use of drumming sessions to find their own inner wisdom around any situation.


The use of drumming therapy can be a very powerful one for you and your clients. While you facilitate a very deep relaxing meditation for them, you find yourself also, in a deeper state of awareness creating a temporary energetic connection to the spirit of the drum, ancestors and probably your client.


Clients may react differently to the treatment. Some fall asleep, some feel very physically aware and some feel like they have drifted off to a very happy place! Following a session, the client can continue to experience the benefits of having been in the meditative state for some time.
