Rhythmical massage

Congestion and stagnation in the fluid organism can be brought into motion again by integrating the shaping and warmth-engendering forces of the “I” and sentient organizations back into the physical-etheric organization through appropriate qualities of touch.

After each treatment with rhythmical massage therapy, the patient experiences clear general relief and alleviation of the accompanying symptoms, such as nausea and the feeling of pressure in the abdomen. Furthermore, there is an improvement in their general sense of well-being, even if no objectively measurable changes occur.

Qualities of touch to be used

Soft, locally sucking, warming qualities of touch that are rhythmic, breathing (with binding/loosening), not restricted to what is happening locally.

Treatment options

The patient sits or, if he is too weak, lies on his side.

  • After short introductory grips on the back with rhythmically breathing, slightly sucking, two-handed kneading, as well as a transverse figure-eight along the back, prepare the upper back, especially the shoulder girdle, with strongly sucking, invigorating grips.
  • A connecting figure-eight between hip and shoulder.
  • Two-handed kneading with a soft, sucking quality along the flank line from below to above, starting at the armpit and then progressively caudal.
  • Treat the hip and sacrum with soft sucking qualities of touch, in figure-eights between hip and sacrum, on the sacrum and seminal figure-eights.
  • A Rhythmical Einreibung treatment of the kidneys
  • Abdominal treatment with the patient in a supine position.
  • Binding and releasing circular tours around the navel.
  • Two-handed kneading: soft, sucking, binding and loosening, locally warming on the whole abdomen.
  • Soft, lifting into lightness, wringing treatment with a slight sucking character, right and left of the navel.
  • Breathing-relieving treatment of the lower edge of the chest.
  • Stroke in a figure-eight form, from the pubic bone to the sides; emphasizing the stroke leading up to the sides, while allowing the returning stroke to just glide.
