The Secrets of Rhythmic Drumming
Rhythmic drumming can make a difference in the lives of those affected by Parkinson’s Disease or Aging – so can you!
People affected with Parkinson’s experience shaking, tremors, muscle stiffness and loss of balance. As we get older, memory loss, sleep deprivation and loneliness slowly creep into our daily lives. The good news is these symptoms and more can be improved through rhythmic drumming.
The rhythmic motion of drumming improves motor skills, develops muscle tone, and stimulates brain functions. Drumming also increases dopamine and serotonin levels which helps to create an overall healthy emotional outlook. And the social aspect of drumming in a group can decrease stress levels, regulate blood pressure and improve sleep habits. Not to mention – it’s just plain fun!
