Internationally Acclaimed Music and Medicine Program Comes To Waconia
Connect, de-stress, and transform an ordinary weekend into an extraordinary opportunity to change your life.
Valencia (I-Newswire) February 12, 2014 - World renowned HealthRHYTHMS® Group Empowerment Drumming facilitation training program will be offered in Waconia, March 8-9, 2014. This weekend training includes cutting-edge information on mind-body medicine techniques for facilitating a research-based protocol using group drumming for health outcomes.
The Health Rhythms Division of Remo, Inc., based in Valencia, California, provides research, training, articles, instruments, and programs pertaining to the use of group drumming in hospitals for integrative medicine, in schools for reducing stress and achieving better academic outcomes and in corporations for employee wellness and teambuilding, and for community and intergenerational events. The evidence-based one-hour protocol integrates group drumming with proven health strategies to support individuals in their quest for well-being.
Six supporting research studies have been published since neurologist, Barry Bittman, MD led a renowned research team in the first biological study on the effects of group drumming in 2000. Published in The Journal of Alternative Therapies, this study showed a significant increase in NK (Natural Killer) cells, circulating white blood cells that seek out and destroy cancer and virally infected cells, after the one hour drumming protocol. Featured as an expert guest on CNN Headline News, Dr. Bittman spoke about his study published in Advances in Mind-Body Medicine (2003) on the use of the HealthRHYTHMS group drumming protocol for long term care workers. The study indicated it improved mood, reduced burnout, and resulted in significant economic savings due to the actual 21.8% staff turn-over reduction experienced.
Annie Heiderscheit, Ph.D., MT-BC, FAMI, NMT, Director of the Master of Music Therapy Program at Augsburg College and Graduate Associate Professor at the Center for Spirituality & Healing, University of Minnesota in Minneapolis uses HealthRHYTHMS for family therapy sessions and group work with eating disorder patients. Professor Heiderscheit notes "there is a tremendous process that takes place during HealthRHYTHMS sessions which not only connects people to their inner spirit, but also connects them to their community at large".
Remo, Inc. and HealthRHYTHMS Trainer Frank Thompson, who teaches HealthRHYTHMS at Arizona State University, are appreciative of the opportunity to partner with Cheri Bunker from Women's Drum Center in St. Paul and the CAIM Center in Waconia to bring this transformational training to Minnesota.
