Using hand drumming for therapy
The Drumming Guys have done a number of therapeutic drumming
sessions - with cancer patients, nursing staff, caregivers
and children with special needs.
Hand drumming has proven to have a number of therapeutic benefits,
one of the most well known is stress relief. But there are many more
benefits to group drumming sessions for therapy.
Studies have shown that after only a few minutes of hand drumming,
subjects reported a marked improvement in their mood. Drumming is
known to be beneficial in the treatment of depression.
Drumming has been used in many countries to benefit people with various
medical conditions - studies in cancer patients have shown
that it improves the immune system response.
"Studies have shown that music therapy can even have
a positive impact on immune cells, which are essential in the bodys
fight against cancer."
Drumming has also been used effectively in occupational therapy
to assist mental health patients, recovering addiction patients,
and for children and teenagers with special needs.
