Group Empowerment Drumming

Remo HealthRHYTHMS®


The foundation of all of our drumming programs is the evidence-based HealthRHYTHMS® Group Empowerment Drumming Protocol. Scientific research has demonstrated that as a wellness strategy, HealthRHYTHMS® can create positive changes in the immune system, reduce burn-out, and improve mood states. Participating in HealthRHYTHMS® Group Empowerment Drumming provides an extraordinary opportunity to discover your personal rhythm and enhance the overall quality of your life.


HealthRHYTHMS® is an evidence-based Recreational Music-Making (RMM) program that leverages the benefits of group drumming as a life-enhancement and empowerment tool. HealthRHYTHMS®’s group drumming protocol is being utilized as a cost-effective strategy for inspiring successful living and offering exceptional support and personal expression. By giving people permission to play, group drumming and rhythm exercises have been scientifically shown to boost the immune system, improve mood, and reduce stress and burnout. 


HealthRHYTHMS® may be used to create a health-promoting environment, empower people to move beyond their perceived limits, bring to the surface what is difficult to express in words alone, draw people together, and enhance communication and morale.
