The Reiki Drum Technique combines the practice of Shamanic Drumming with the protective and gentle healing energy of Reiki, creating a powerful and transformational healing modality.  Reiki Drumming is a specialized method of introducing Reiki energy into a client’s energy field to facilitate deep relaxation and stress relief.


The drum, together with reiki, works intuitively over the client’s body to deliver a deep healing treatment. Reiki flows on the vibrations of the drum and into the recipient. This is followed by a Reiki session to fully integrate the treatment and ground the client.


Drumming is gaining recognition amongst researchers and scientists as a therapeutic tool.  Recent studies have shown that drumming can boost the immune system and help to reduce stress.    Studies have been conducted and benefits have been recognised with all of the following population groups;  autistic children, recovering addicts, trauma patients, homeless and prison populations and more.  Study results show that drumming can be helpful when treating many health conditions.  Research has found that drumming can serve as a distraction from pain and grief.  It can help promote the production of endorphins and therefore can help control pain.  Research has also demonstrated that drumming accesses the entire brain. Drumming helps generate dynamic neuronal connections in all parts of the brain and can assist within the brain after stroke or neurological impairment such as with Parkinson's Disease.  Drumming has many physiological effects on the body.  

Biofeedback research indicates that even brief heartbeat drumming can double light meditative brainwaves (alpha) and reduce stress. We now know that stress depresses the immune system and has been linked to nearly all diseases.  As stress is relieved, tensions in the physical body are often released as well.

Reiki Drum Cautions and Contraindications

Reiki Drum is not recommended for epileptic clients who experience regular seizures.

Due to the possible imagery content which can be induced by the drumming, caution is required for clients with a history of PTSD, sever emotional disorders, schizophrenia, psychosis or hallucination problems.  It is necessary for an individual to be able to easily distinguish what is real or ordinary reality.  If in doubt, medical / psychological advice should be sought where appropriate.

Caution should be exercised with clients who have pacemakers fitted.  It is generally recommended to avoid the heart area during normal reiki treatments, so the same should apply with the drumming.  Drumming has been known to affect the heart beat, although it can have an normalising effect corresponding to the rhythm of the drum beat.  The pulse can speed up or slow down and gradually synchronises with the drum beat.  

It is suggested that we do not work too close to the head and especially for any head or ear conditions like Ménière's, Tinnitus, Headaches or sound sensitivities ~ we have ear plugs in class to help reduce sound.  Again Medical advice may wish to be saught.

Anyone in the early stages of pregnancy or who have any ongoing concerns around their pregnancy, or past pregnancy history, may wish to take medical advice and may wish to speak with Lorna before attending.
