How was everyone’s #sundaydrumday Labor Day weekend?
Drum Therapy: well, I needed to work out some *issues* and schlepped myself over to the store’s kit to get the blood pumping to some System of a Down. High octane, ponytail, sweat flying, messy pounding out my emotions. #itcounts #itworks
According to a Psychology Today article, drumming is actually linked scientifically to reducing stress and, “Neurologist Barry Bittman, who co-developed a program for REMO called Health Rhythms with music therapist Christine Stevens, found that group drumming and recreational music making increases the body’s production of cancer killing t-cells, decreases stress, and can change the genomic stress marker. Bittman says drumming ‘tunes our biology, orchestrates our immunity, and enables healing to begin.'”
Woo! Now that’s what I call #drumtherapy
