Where we find weakened human rhythms for whatever reason, we find ill health. The Hauschka rhythmical massage addresses the rhythmical processes in the body, in the circulatory and respiratory systems and working via the warmth organisation, brings all bodily functions such as digestion and excretion etc, into equilibrium and harmony. Each cell feels the effect of a new path of streaming warmth and as a result, the human being’s guiding principle, the ego, can organise itself anew.
Based on the Anthroposophical understanding of the human being, the aim of Hauschka rhythmical massage is to re-establish the harmonisation if the ego, astral. etheric and physical bodies.
With rhythmical movements and specific forms that engage the patient’s own healing forces, the rhythmical massage strengthens the middle rhythmic system countering imbalances in the strength of intellect or the will, the metabolic limb system and thereby reconnects the individual to the greater cosmic rhythms so necessary for life. The massage movements stimulate life giving forces and when specifically directed, can support weakened organs.
The rhythmical grips and strokes are consciously and sensitively carried out in relation to the patient’s individual needs. A cleanliness of line is experienced in a similar way to music reflecting the cosmic forces of order. Special oils are chosen to soften hardening processes or to strengthen weaknesses for example, away from or towards the heart with the strength dependant upon age and condition. The hands ”listen” to the fluidity needs of the glandular processes, the tensions of the nervous system and over the course of massage, bring warmth and life to the patient in a truly healing way.
Based on Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual research, this new rhythmical massage was developed by Drs. Ita Wegman and Margarethe Hauschka. Rhythmical massage is suitable for everyone from babies, children and teenagers through to adults and the elderly.
Charlotte Rogers studied the massage in Germany and has worked with adults and children as massage therapist for 30 years in her own private practice.
A recent comment made by client:
Charlotte’s healing rhythmic massage
I just wanted to share my gratitude to Charlotte for her amazing ability work with Rudolf Steiner’s rhythmic massage. The healing effect
on my children has been incredible.
We moved to Bellingen this year and it has put an unbelievable amount of stress on my boys who have dealt with a new school, new house and moving away from family. From a parents perspective we underestimated how much They stress of all this change had on our children which came out in challenging behaviours which I now understand to be their way of expressing stress overload. Both boys did one session a week for 6 weeks. From the moment we walked in, Charlotte’s warmth and open hearted kindness put myself and children at ease.
First by By giving them a foot bath followed by a massage. Charlotte used a variety of oils which which relaxed them into a deep sleep. Each week I would notice both boys slowly settling down and sleeping better, nightmares started to calm down and anger and frustration during the day seemed to slowly disappear. They started having better days at school, a positive outlook and were more grounded and happy within themselves.
