drum therapy

The drum and probably the flute are the oldest known instruments known to man but as they were made of organic material the earliest examples do not exist. The drum has been used for thousands of years to create beats for rituals, sacred ceremony’s and dances. We don’t use expensive musician’s drums for sacred drumming we use single skin hoop drums.

Yes there are double skin drums but they are for the more advanced and a lot harder to obtain. We can play the drum on our own or in drum circles the latter being a very powerful experience always greater than the sum of its parts but no less healing. Twenty minutes of drumming a simple lub dub beat 1 2 1 2 1 2 at around 54 beats a minute will lower high blood pressure. A simple 8 beat at 180 to 240 beats per minute will create an altered state of consciousness to travel in the spiritual realms to shamanic journey for yourself or others.

As always depending on the need of the client and the intent different beats will be used to restore balance to the human condition.

" I’ve been having regular healing sessions with Ruby. As I don’t live in UK, all of the sessions have been done via Zoom. When we started, I wasn’t sure how it’s going to look like and if it will feel as good as during the regular, in person session, but I have to say Ruby and her abilities blew my mind. "

I loved discovering how I can connect to my ancestors and how to heal things that might still be influencing me and my family now. I’ve never really felt like I belong but doing this course changed that. "

" With Ruby, we have been able to get to the root cause of a number of persistent feelings and patterns of behaviour and I have gained knowledge and strategies to help me cope in a better way. Ruby has been so helpful and I would wholeheartedly recommend her services."
