Eurythmy therapy as an art of movement originates from music and the sounds of speech, both vowels and consonants. Each sound quality has its own deep relationship to the human being and the activities within the human physiology. In Eurythmy they are then transformed into movements of the whole body. When used as a therapy the movements and gestures are worked with in such a way that they stimulate processes in the human being on both an organic and souls spiritual level.
Eurythmy therapy helps to strengthen, regulate and harmonise. The exercises help too improve posture, mobility, spatial orientation, rhythm, breathing, circulation and warmth. Eurythmy therapy stimulates the life forces and powers of healing which are inherent within the human being. It also strengthens a sense of well-being and self-confidence. The therapy is used in the treatment of a wide range of conditions such as cardio-vascular disorders, neurological problems, muscular-skeletal disorders, and irregularities in child development, life crises and associated medical complaints. It is also helpful in the treatment of mental illness.
Like other anthroposophical medicines, Eurythmy therapy supports your own body in its healing efforts. It can compliment other treatment such as chemotherapy nurturing the resilience of the body to cope easier with the impact of the treatment.
This is a one to one therapy. Eurythmy therapy is designed to meet the need of each individual and a programme of exercise is developed with each client to be practised at home. It is a therapy in which one takes an active role in the process of healing. The exercises are done either standing, sitting or lying down.
