Eurythmy therapy

When treating pain, it is usually advisable to start at the periphery and enter into fluid movement there. Once this has been achieved, we go with the resulting flow of movement to the cramp-like condensing movement caused by the pain, to “flood” it to a certain extent and thereby dissolve or at least alleviate it.

The therapeutic approach

  • Swinging movement in a figure-eight pattern
    The effective sounds are mainly “I”, “finger I” and “S”, the sound sequence “L – M – S” and “EI” , to bring the movement into a swinging figure eight pattern, comparable to the rocking of a child. The use of a copper ball can be very helpful (known as the “ball figure eight”).

  • For abdominal pain “M” and “D”
    M” and “D” are particularly helpful in treating abdominal pain. “M” is a kind of “miracle sound” in movement, which gently and intimately stimulates the flow in the fluid organism and thus leads to relaxation.

  • The sound movements “L” and “D”
    A small “L” and “D” with the feet or toes can have a soothing effect. In case of pain, it can also be useful to move the feet passively, because this creates a deepening feeling of well-being that leads to a loosening or resolution. The patient often subsequently falls asleep.
