“Rhythmic Einreibung” is a therapy of rhythmic body oiling. Its techniques were developed by Dr. Margarethe Hauschka on the basis of suggestions from Dr. Ita Wegman, founder of the clinic in Switzerland that bears her name. Dr. Wegman trained in Swedish massage, and rhythmic Einreibung is a development of this technique that emphasizes rhythmic elements and qualities to create lightness rather than pressure. The strokes work with the surface of the skin rather than kneading the body as is done with conventional massage techniques.
The book features numerous practical exercises that help build the practitioner’s ability. It is suitable for both beginners and for those who wish to deepen their understanding of these techniques.
