External Applications in Anthroposophic Nursing

Welcome to the Vademecum for External Applications

This website on compresses, rhythmical oil applications, baths and other external applications is primarily aimed at nursing and medical professionals.

This online handbook is a valuable treasure trove gathered from 100 years of experience in working with compresses, rhythmical oil inunctions (Rhythmical Einreibung) and therapeutic baths in Anthroposophic Medicine and nursing care. It is intended as a useful daily reference site that collects, preserves and publicizes these treasures. The word “Vademecum” (Lat. “go with me”) best expresses our intentions.
