Etheric massage uses specific movements applied with rhythm,
lightness and warmth to regulate processes that give rise to symptoms,
back into harmony with the rest of the body.

Etheric massage is based on an understanding of the human being as given by Rudolf Steiner. The massage works with light ryhmical movements to revitalise metabolic activity, rejuvinate the nervous system and harmonise the circulatory and respiratory functions thereby enhancing the body’s natural healing forces through the use of specific massage forms not found in other styles of massage.

As all functions of the body have their own rhythm, any symptom or illness can be seen as a process that has fallen out of rhythm with its surroundings. Etheric massage applied with great attention to rhythm, lightness and warmth, encourages these inner processes that give rise to symptoms to be re-incorporated back into the healthy functioning of the body.
