5 INCREDIBLE BENEFITS OF DRUMMING - WHICH ONE DO YOU WANT?
DRUMMING CONTROLS STRESS AND ANXIETY- Stanford University School of Medicine conducted a study and found that participants in a weekly music therapy group were less anxious; less distressed; and had higher self-esteem. (Friedman, Healing Power of the Drum, 1994).
DRUMMING IS A NATURAL PAIN KILLER - Research suggests that drumming serves as a distraction from pain and grief. Specifically, drumming promotes the production of endorphins and endogenous opiates, the body's own morphine-like pain killers, and can thereby help to control pain.
DRUMMING MAKES YOU SMARTER - Drumming is a great workout for your brain and can actually make you smarter. Research shows that the physical transmission of rhythmic energy to the brain actually synchronizes the left and right hemispheres. Why? When the logical left hemisphere and the intuitive right hemisphere of your brain begin to pulsate together, your inner guidance system ñ or intuition and becomes stronger *
DRUMMING PUTS YOU IN THE NOW - While drumming, you are moving your awareness toward the flow of life. When you are flowing with the rhythm of life, you cannot be caught up in your past or worrying about your future.*
DRUMMING CONNECTS YOU TO A HIGHER POWER - Shamans often use drumming as a means to integrate mind, body and spirit. They focus on the whole body and then integrate the healing at both the physical and spiritual level by drumming, which connects spiritual forces.*
*Christian Northrop, MD
