Drumming can also be used to develop muscle and to increase relaxation. Here’s how: While you watch yourself drumming, clap in rhythm to the drum patterns. If you can, move your feet and body as you clap, stepping to the right and left, forward and back. Tap on your body, using your chest as a drum. This can be quite exhilarating!
Or use the drumming patterns to tap on the acupressure points in the images below (follow which ever is clearest to you). Use two or three fingers of either hand to tap gently on each of these points 6 or 7 times before moving on to the next point. Start at the side of the eye and end at the top of the head.
