Training as a Rhythmical Massage Therapist involves not only mastering the techniques of the massage itself, but also developing an understanding of the human being in health and illness, both from a conventional and anthroposophical perspective. You will learn a subtle rhythmical quality of touch which works with levity rather than gravity to strengthen and enliven the life-supporting processes in the human body.

Teaching and learning take place through a combination of lectures and hands-on practice, mixed artistic media exercises, discussion groups, tutorials, regular between-module medical assignments, year-long independent projects, case studies and special seminars. Through these methods, students can develop a thorough, in-depth, and holistic approach to the theory and practice of Rhythmical Massage Therapy.

The first year’s theme is the healthy human being both from a conventional and an anthroposophical point of view. After that, the focus will be on the dynamics of health and illness in its varying manifestations. During the two years, you will learn the basic forms of Rhythmical Massage Therapy and then deepen these massage movement skills qualitatively by learning how to transform the archetypal forms to suit specific illnesses.


  • The course is intended for mature learners. You must be 21 years of age or older. Applicants must have adequate knowledge of written and spoken English.

  • Applicants must, as a minimum, have either completed or be in the process of completing training in Swedish ( Remedial ) Massage as recognised by the General Council for Massage Therapy ( GCMT). Physiotherapists are welcome to apply and other physical therapy backgrounds will be considered on an individual basis.

  • The RMTT encourages applications from people from different ethnic, religious, gender, sexual and minority backgrounds.

Provisional start date is summer 2022. For the exact dates please see the Course Overview.
