Did you know that drumming is a universal language?
According to Project Resiliency, social drumming allows people to connect with themselves and others so they can release, restore and heal.
“It is a universal language where can experience life with an open heart,” the organisation says.
According to one class participant, Renee*, drumming has helped her during times of joy, sadness, and change.
“There’s something soothing about the rhythms, which can bring you closer to other people and help you tap into deeper wells of courage.
What are the benefits of drumming?
Research indicates that drumming accelerates physical healing and boosts the immune system.
Studies conducted by professionals in the fields of music therapy and mental health show us that drumming:
- Reduces tension, anxiety and stress
- Helps control chronic pain
- Boosts the immune system
- Releases negative feelings, blockages and emotional trauma
Drumming is said to induce deep relaxation, lower blood pressure, and produce feelings of wellbeing.
How drumming builds community
Drum circles help people connect with others and experience interpersonal support.
Feeling connected to others, especially those in similar situations, offers numerous benefits.
