Drumming for Health with Warrior Beat at Roseburg VA Health Care System
The Roseburg VA Health Care System is pleased to host a weekly session of therapeutic drumming known as 'Drumming for Health with Warrior Beat'. This is a unique program designed to introduce Veterans and VA caregivers to the healing power of drumming. The sessions are held every Wednesday from 10 am to 11 am. The venue is Roseburg VA, Building 2, Room A111. You may choose to join us in person, or you may prefer the convenience of our live stream.
Drum Your Way to Healing
Drumming has been used in many cultures for centuries as a means of healing and self-expression. The rhythmic beating of a drum creates a soothing vibration that can help to reduce stress, alleviate depression, and manage pain. Studies have also shown that drumming can boost energy levels and reignite the joy of self-expression.
During each session, participants will learn a range of drumming techniques and rhythms. This interactive experience fosters a sense of camaraderie among the participants, further enhancing the therapeutic benefits of the activity. At the end of each session, participants will have several minutes of guided reflection, allowing them to internalize and process their experiences.
