Frame drums are some of the oldest musical instruments, drumming for healing and meditation is an ancient practice.
The Reiki Drum Technique
Combining Reiki and Shamanic medicine drumming, creating a powerful and protective healing method. Popular in the United States, (where it was formed by Michael Arthur Baird of the Infinite Light Healing Studies Centre).
We use the drum to introduce Reiki energy into a person’s energy field to bring about deep relaxation, shifting blockages and releasing tension.
Biofeedback research has indicated that drumming (even for short periods) can influence brain activity by inducing an alpha state, brainwaves associated with wellbeing and euphoria.
Research and studies show:
Drumming can improve right brain functions like creativity and intuition
The sounds of a drum can help with illness and emotional trauma.
Drumming has been linked with positive effects on Alzheimer’s and Dementia patients, emotionally disturbed teens, recovery addicts and trauma patients.
Drumming can increase the production of the body’s natural painkillers.
In tribal cultures, this ancient practice of using the power of sound, for healing the body, mind and spirit is well known. Now in the western world (as there is a lot of scientific research supporting this), this ancient wisdom and knowledge thankfully is becoming more acceptable and feasible to modern minds.
