How does Sound Therapy work ? 

For decades, sound healers have used sound therapy to rid the body of unhealthy energy cycles and return you to a state of harmonious vibration. Sound therapy will help to balance the nervous system, heal tissue, and get you into a state of inner peace over time.

When sound waves reach our ears, they are converted into electrical signals that travel up the auditory nerve into the auditory cortex, the part of the brain that processes sound.

Once sound waves reach our brains, they trigger responses in our bodies.

This process alters our emotions, releases hormones, and triggers certain impulses.

How to Care for Your Tongue Drum ?

Caring for your tongue drum is easy! Simple precautions and being mindful of what your tongue drum can and cannot do goes a long way. When playing your tongue drum, keep the following recommendations in mind:

  • Use appropriate force with either your palm or a mallet. 
  • When playing, your wrist should provide the motion, not your whole arm or elbow. 
  • Do not play the middle of the tongue with your fingers. Instead, focus on the sides and bottom half of the tongue. 
  • Avoid wearing rings or bracelets while playing. 

`When you are not playing your tongue drum, store it in a safe and dry location indoors. Tongue drums should not be left outside or exposed to the elements.

 

How to Cleanse your Chakra with Handrum™ ? 

To cleanse the chakras with a tongue drum, simply start by playing the C note of your drum and begin to meditate and focus on the location and wellbeing of your root chakra. 

 

Advanced Playing

Once you feel more comfortable playing your tongue drum, you can begin practicing more technical and advanced playing. Here are some exercises that can help you:

  • Play with both a mallet and your hands at the same time.
  • Try dampening notes with your finger after playing them. 
  • To dampen or shorten all notes, try stuffing the drum with something soft. When notes do not resonate as long, you can play faster melodies. 
  • Experiment with mallets. Alternate between hand sticks or rubber or felt mallets.
  • Follow along to drumming patterns and sheet music you find with our package.
