Rhythmical Einreibung Foundation Course

A Foundation Course in the Art of Rhythmical Einreibung

  • Are you a nurse, carer, masseur, naturopath, body worker, or health care professional?
  • Do you treat frail or sensitive patients?
  • Are you looking for a more gentle therapy for your clients?

Rhythmical Einreibung is a very gentle method of therapeutic touch developed for nurses and carers and useful for everyone working in caring or healing professions. It focusses and strengthens the patient’s powers of self-healing through the art of rhythmical touch and is used to warm, calm and harmonise the body to provide comfort and relief. Because of its gentle, calming nature it can be very beneficial for patients who are too frail or sensitive for other hands-on therapies, including those who are at end of life. In palliative care therapeutic touch can relieve anxiety, and reduce feelings of fear, through relaxation a positive effect on symptoms including pain and shortness of breath can be experienced.

The programme is delivered over 2 modules of 5 days each and one module of 2.5 days over the period of a year. The duration of the programme is designed to allow the participants to practice and develop the skills they are learning over time. Participants will carry out and report on 10 part RE treatments on family and friends.
