Drum therapy is an ancient and profound way to restore the vibrational integrity of the body/mind/spirit system and has exceptional benefits in trauma therapy. The rich sound waves produced by the drum transmit their energy to the drummer and the calming effect produced by this wave of energy can be a powerful tool for relaxation, making it easier to cultivate awareness during acute or chronic trauma therapy.
When humans drum, our bodies, brainwaves, and spiritual energy centers begin to vibrate in a harmonious response and we are better equipped to handle the intense emotionality and deeply affective feelings that can be brought to the surface during trauma therapy. Forming new harmonic alignments and becoming one with a universal life force is an extraordinarily effective way to alleviate the toxic emotions produced in addiction help, chronic pain management, or other form of trauma therapy.
Although the ancients have known for thousands of years the benefits of music in psychic healing and trauma therapy, even science is now verifying the therapeutic effects of drumming. A recent medical research study indicates that drumming boosts the immune system dramatically after just one drumming session. Other studies have demonstrated the calming, focusing, and healing effects of drumming on Alzheimer's patients, autistic children, emotionally disturbed teens, substance abusers, trauma therapy patients, and prison and homeless populations. Study results demonstrate that drumming is a valuable treatment for stress, fatigue, anxiety, hypertension, headaches, asthma, chronic pain, arthritis, and sleep and emotional disorders.
