Didgeridoo Sound Therapy
The low frequency range of the didgeridoo entrains our brainwaves to a state of deep relaxation. By slowing down activity in the parietal and frontal lobes of the brain, there is a feeling of deep relaxation and the logical and rational mind also slows down. The result is that our creativity and imagination is given a chance to be in control.
I consistently find that Didgeridoo Sound Therapy sessions brings a state of deep relaxation for children of all ages and abilities. Reducing stress, sound sensitivities and destructive behaviours occur on a consistent basis.
For children that are higher functioning, Didgeridoo Sound Therapy sessions boosts creativity and imagination. Many children are able to engage in creative writing after a session of listening and relaxing to the didgeridoo.
I can also provide plastic didgeridoos for children to have a go on and teach them how to play. Learning to play the didgeridoo is beneficial for learning how to breathe in a way that reduces stress and also boosts our health and vitality. This also boosts confidence through using their voice and making sounds through the didgeridoo.
Stress management for schools
The sounds and vibrations of the lower frequency didgeridoos entrain the brain waves to states of deep relaxation and is therefore beneficial for reducing stress, anxiety and behavioural problems.
Enhances concentration and performance
The sounds and vibrations of the higher frequency didgeridoos entrain the brain waves to energised states and therefore helps students to re-energise and refocus which has enhanced their performance.
Non touch sound massage
The vibrations of the didgeridoo gives a non touch sound massage and may therefore alleviate muscular and skeletal pain.
Special Needs Schools and Students with disabilities
Didgeridoo Sound Therapy sessions has proven beneficial for students with a broad range of disabilities including:
- Physical disabilities
- Learning disabilities
- Sensory disabilities
- Autistic spectrum
- Mental ill health
- Profound and multiple learning disabilities
For children and young people with limited or no communication, the didgeridoo is an effective communication tool to mimic the students sounds and movement.
