Health Rhythms Group Drumming Empowerment Program



Drumming is a recreational, active music-making program for health & wellness.


**This is an excellent program for employee wellness and staff retention reducing the cost of turn-over.**


  • Drum therapy is evidence-based showing that the physical transmission of rhythmic energy to the brain synchronizes the left and right cerebral hemispheres.  
  • All people actively engaged in drumming and rhythmic expression experience a boost in their immune system, relief from chronic pain and improved mobility and motor skills.
  • Drumming produces feelings of well-being, provides stress relief and makes you happy because you are making your own music. 
  • Participation in a drum circle encourages expressive fun, brings new social connections, and builds community. 
  • Drumming increases the body's production of the natrual cancer-killing T-cells for a healthier you!
  • Drumming is adaptable for people of all ages and of all life situations. 
  • Participation in a drum circle decreases anxiety, depression and social isolation.
  • Our bodies are a vast network of rhythmic systems and drumming tunes our biology.
