5 Reasons why Drumming is Good For You!
There are so many incredible health benefits from drumming, its quite amazing, please read on.
Scientific research shows that drumming helps with conditions including: stress, fatigue, anxiety, hypertension, asthma, chronic pain, arthritis, mental illness, migraines, multiple sclerosis, cancer ParkinsonÃs disease, stroke, paralysis, emotional disorders, cancer and a wide range of physical disabilities.
REASON #1: DRUMMING BOOSTS YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
Barry Bittman, MD, neurologist and President of the Yamaha Music & Wellness Institute, has shown that group drumming actually increases natural T-cells, which help the body combat cancer as well as other viruses.
REASON #2 : DRUMMING MAKES YOU FEEL HAPPY!
Drumming releases endorphins and Alpha waves in the brain, which are associated with general feelings of happiness, joy, and euphoria.
REASON #3 – DRUMMING HELPS CONTROL STRESS & CHRONIC PAIN
Drumming can certainly serve as a distraction from pain and stress. Drumming induces deep relaxation, lowers blood pressure, and reduces stress.
And, it promotes the production of endorphins and endogenous opiates, which are the bodies own morphine-like painkillers. Sit on the computer all day?
This is a great way to de-stress from a days work!
REASON #4: DRUMMING PRODUCES SYNCHRONIZED BRAIN WAVE ACTIVITY
Research has demonstrated that the physical transmission of rhythmic energy to the brain synchronizes the two cerebral hemispheres. When the logical left hemisphere and the intuitive right hemisphere begin to pulsate in harmony, the inner guidance of intuitive knowing can then flow unimpeded into conscious awareness, putting our brain in the awakened state, a state similar to that when we meditate.
REASON #5 : DRUMMING INDUCES A MEDITATIVE, RELAXED STATE
The ability of sound to induce meditative states was well known thousands of years ago to ancient Hindu and Buddhist cultures, which used rhythmic chanting, singing bowls, finger chimes and other methods to transcend ordinary consciousness, as well. Drumming, by combining the vibrational tones of meditation and the 180-cycles-per-second beat approximating the base resonant frequency of the Earth itself, thus, becomes not only a powerful meditation tool, but a way to tap into our psychic inner ability.
Aren’t you ready for more Joy? Health? Happiness?
I can promise you that drumming will do this for you.
