  • Positive effects of Drumming

    “When people drum, something happens to their brain that only happens when people are drumming together or when people are in deep meditation,” he explained. “The brain usually operates with either the left or right side independently. People generally cycle in 20 minutes per side. But when drumming, we experience something called hemispheric synchronization, where both sides work at the same time. Scientists believe this is the basis of transcendent states of consciousness. People feel two opposite emotions simultaneously: energized and relaxed.”

    Friedman authored The Healing Power of the Drum - Read more here

    Drumming as a therapy can be used to aid in the healing of many different illness,  it can be used with Alzheimer’s patients and autistic children, giving them an external stimuli. It helps with attention and focus. It can be used for Parkinsons, post traumatic stress disorder to name but a few. InRhythm have been utilising the therapeutic benefits of rhythm and drumming since early 2002 to help individuals and groups unveil the natural peace and joy that is every humans birthright.

    The facilitation of group drumming requires sensitivity and awareness to the group dynamic - to the personalities of the group.  A drumming facilitator influences the drum circle and can encourage and empower those who are timid and self-conscious about being heard. Become a Drum Therapy Facilitator!

    "Drumming Therapy taps into layers of the mind and body that other modalities cannot. Studies have shown that repetitive drumming changes brain wave activity, inducing a state of calm and focused awareness. Drumming Therapy is a method of utilizing the natural power of rhythm and sound and applying it to an individual or group for the purpose of healing. A truly holistic healing approach, group drumming breaks down social barriers, promotes freedom of expression, non-verbal communication, unity and cooperation. Drumming awakens dormant emotions and unexplainable feelings of excitement, peace, and ecstacy. It can elevate the mood, decrease anxiety, and stress, and it boosts immune system functioning and benefits physical health."

  • What is drum therapy? Where can I get meaningful training?

    ‘We moderns are the last people on the planet to uncover what older cultures have known for thousands of years: The act of drumming contains a therapeutic potential to relax the tense, energize the tired, and soothe the emotionally wounded.’

    So says Gary Diggins, an Ontario sound therapist. Read more here…..


    All expressive therapies have one common thread: human emotion and creativity. Throughout history healers didn’t just use drumming and ritual to heal, they used many different aspects of self discovery to bring their people on a healing journey.


    Drumming was, however, one of the most important aspects of this healingand used in combination with other modalities to aid in the recovery of their people. Nowadays the discussion continues in the therapy world about the importance of in-depth training.


    With regards to drum therapy, a flirtation with drumming is not enough. Only a love of drumming can lead to a felt experience and formed expression. While many therapists are familiar with several therapies, most tend to specialise in one or two that they are trained in and that meet the needs and situation of their clients. Self-expression through drumming, movement, or percussion can remind us of past experiences and even be cleansing for some, but it has been recognised the ability of drumming to contain self expression rather than to retraumatise or cause repetition of troubling memories. When a person works with a drum therapist, they work together where their self expression through drumming is used as a container for feelings, an opportunity to see life from a different perspective, through a different lens and therefore can deepen into a greater self understanding which can transform, heal the individual emotionally, resolve internal conflict and will provide an overall sense of well-being.


    ‘Drumming Therapy taps into layers of the mind and body that other modalities cannot. Studies have shown that repetitive drumming changes brain wave activity, inducing a state of calm and focused awareness.’
