Healing through Percussion aka Drum Therapy…
Energy Fitness, downtown Memphis, offers a variety of healing arts …
Everyone feels anxious, nervous, or uncomfortably edgy sometimes and we all have to find a method of release for this energy flow and drumming is one of our suggestions in this blog post. Having a calming spirit can be achieved by noticing the imbalances in your body and mind, then bringing them back into balance through changing any patterns of thoughts and actions that are thwarting a calm existence.
Did you know that Drumming Reduces Tension, Lowers Blood Pressure, Reduces Anxiety and Stress?
Energy Fitness’ Reiki Master/Healing Arts Practitioner talks about the healing benefits of a drum. (FYI…After Diana has used her own drum on me in sessions twice I had to go and buy my own and the drum pictured is mine which was only $35 at the Drum Shop in Memphis.

Drumming Helps Control Chronic Pain
Chronic pain has a progressively draining effect on the quality of life. Researchers suggest that drumming serves as a distraction from pain and grief. Drumming promotes the production of endorphins and endogenous opiates, the bodies own morphine-like painkillers, and can thereby help in the control of pain.
Drumming Boosts the Immune System
A recent medical research study indicates that drumming circles boost the immune system. Led by renowned cancer expert Barry Bittman, MD, the study demonstrates that group drumming actually increases cancer-killing cells, which help the body combat cancer as well as other viruses, including AIDS. According to Dr. Bittman, “Group drumming tunes our biology, orchestrates our immunity, and enables healing to begin.”
Many shamanic cultures place great emphasis on drumming, for the drum unites masculine and feminine energies, generating the force that weaves the web of life. Drumming cultivates life force energy in the lower energy centers of the body, which is then stored in the area of the solar plexus. This energy can then be directed back to the higher chakras or toward healing and creative endeavors. Focusing your attention on the individual chakras while drumming, you may experience each energy center becoming active, balanced, and aligned with the other chakras.
