I love the way Kumi leads the sessions - she makes everyone feel welcome; gives clear instructions; makes everything fun and high-energy; shares fascinating stories about drums and drumming in many cultures; encourages and acknowledges everyone, and manages to fit lots of interesting activities into a one-hour session.

What participants say...

Hand Drums

The programme helped me to open up, be uplifted and to find deep freedom within; a whole new experience for me! 

Geoffrey L. 

Being in the moment with others and able to release and be creative with a sense of privacy; I would usually feel a little reserved to sing if everyone could hear me.

N. Lee

Loved the creative session in which I could imagine myself walking in a  jungle listening to bird's song.  I feel relaxed.

M.Z. 

Kumi's talents in drumming, music and facilitating events are astounding!

"HealthRHYTHMS is a here-and-now experience; it takes you away from your current worries and fears. It gives your mind a good rest.  Also, it is a communal experience.  By drumming in unison with others, you enjoy the communal feeling, rather than focusing just on the self. A wonderful programme!"
CancerLink, Hong Kong Cancer Fund
HealthRHYTHMS® is an evidence-based whole person strategy which promotes socialization and ensures a healthy non-strenuous workout.
 
On a deeper level, it builds bridges while fostering nurturing, support, camaraderie, self-respect and respect for others.
 
It is not about mastering of drumming technique, but uses the drum as a tool for personal expression and connecting with others.
 
HealthRHYTHMS has been integrated as a therapeutic strategy in group counseling sessions, support groups, rehabilitation centers, schools, hospitals, elderly facilities and more.
