Music Therapy or Sound Therapy?
Didgeridoo Music Therapy
Music Therapy is much more interactive and each participant has use of a plastic didgeridoo and they will learn techniques of how to play the didgeridoo. This is great for boosting confidence, making sounds, using the voice and is really good fun and interactive.
Didgeridoo Sound Therapy
Didgeridoo Therapy sessions are much more passive where participants are laying down and relaxing to the sounds of 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 and Didgeridoo Music Therapy has been 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.
