Foundation Course in Rhythmical Einreibung Part 1
Students will be introduced to the theory of rhythmical and life processes through instruction and practice, and will learn:

  • The qualities of rhythmical touch and how to provide them
  • The meaning of the warmth organism and its importance in therapy
  • Application of the rhythmical qualities in other nursing situations
  • Indications and contraindications of Rhythmical Einreibung
  • Rhythmical Einreibung of the back, legs and feet

The learning process is experiential and imaginative, offering a living knowledge of Rhythmical Einreibung that participants can integrate into their health care practices and life situations.

Pregnancy and some medical conditions are contraindications for receiving Rhythmical Einreibung in a practice setting; please notify the course coordinators if you are pregnant or have a medical condition.

A mentoring process is available to those who wish to complete the Foundation Course.
