De-stress, Calm Down, Balance, or Energize with Special Drumming Techniques! Give your nervous system an enlivening workout with this healing method of drumming and body entrainment! Entrainment and Beat Induction are processes where a beat or a rhythm from a source can induce the same beat or rhythm in a second body.
The first example that I learned – when studying Entrainment – was the case of a roomful of clocks. In a room with multiple mechanical clocks (clocks with a pendulum), a dominant clock (such as a large Grandfather clock) will entrain the periods of all the other clocks nearby. Eventually, all of the clocks will be beating in time (in-phase) – their pendulums will sway together. The master clock has entrained its beating with all of the other clocks present.
