    What does drumming do for the mind?
    Drumming has been used in healing in every culture since the dawn of man, and for good reason.
    It releases endorphins, enkephalins, and alpha waves which are key ingredients for improving your sense of well being. The physical transmission of rhythmic energy to the brain synchronizes the left and the right brain. When your logical left brain and the intuitive right are in harmony, your inner guidance system or intuition becomes stronger. The sound of drumming generates new neuronal connections in all parts of the brain, integrating our experiences and deepening our sense of self-awareness. Science has only scratched the surface regarding the influence of the mind on healing, however, traditional healers have been aware of this connection for centuries. But science is finally starting to pay attention,
    and study is being devoted to the effect of drumming on a brain-related illness such as Parkinson, autism,
    stroke victims and headaches. This is a vibrational healing is a soothing meditation for anxiety.

    What does drumming do for the body?
    You may hear traditional healers talk about the mind/body connection, but what does this mean?
    Simply put, an unhealthy mind generally results in an unhealthy body. They are interconnected. For example, people who worry a lot tend to suffer from stomach related disorders. Likewise, those who are under great stress tend to suffer from heart-related illnesses. Chinese medicine states that emotions correspond with organs; grief resides in the lungs, anger in the liver and so on. Drumming has a number of effects on the body. It can help control chronic pain by producing endorphins and endogenous opiates, which are the body’s natural pain killers. It boosts the immune system by increasing the production of T-Cells and lowering cortisol levels. Decreased cortisol levels also allow a healthy production of serotonin and dopamine. This means that drumming can have a positive effect on many conditions such as anxiety, depression, and various mental illnesses.
