Reiki Drumming is a specialized method of introducing Reiki energy into a client's energy field to facilitate deep relaxation and stress relief. As stress is relieved, physical, emotional and spiritual tension may also be relieved. In Reiki Drumming, the drum acts as an amplifier of the Reiki Practitioner’s intentions - focusing and intensifying the Reiki energy. Through a process called entrainment, the beating of the drum actually raises the vibratory rate of the client’s immune system - which may allow her or him to accelerate their innate healing processes. Drumming also reminds our body of its ideal vibratory rate, which is in harmony with the pulse of the earth and the Universal flow of creation.
There are three applications or techniques employed. The first is to use the drum as part of a normal Reiki session to increase the effectiveness of the session. The second technique uses Reiki Drumming in conjunction with an affirmation to facilitate the re-patterning of thought processes and behaviors. The last technique uses Reiki Drumming as a metronome for an unguided meditation journey. In this application the drumming aids the client in reaching a meditative state. Such journeys are very useful for helping clients relax as well as to work through issues and problems.
