Drumming for healing and meditation is an ancient practice. In tribal cultures the power of sound over the body and spirit is well known, and now in the western world there is research supporting this- making this ancient wisdom more palatable to modern minds. Research shows that brain activity can actually be affected by drumming, and there are studies showing how the sounds of a drum can help with illness and emotional trauma. The combination of the energy of Reiki with the ancient practice of shamanic drumming , whether for healing or journeying leads to a powerful yet gentle healing. Biofeedback research has indicated that drumming (even for short periods) can influence bran activity, bringing them into the meditative alpha state and reducing stress. We know that stress levels are linked to the onset of many diseases, flare-ups of chronic conditions, and the strong tensions in the body. In releasing and reducing stress we are contributing to ones overall health and wellbeing.
