Anthroposophic physicians, nurses and pharmacists are fully qualified professionals who have undertaken further training in Anthroposophic Medicine. Comparable rules apply to body therapists, art therapists and eurythmy therapists. In social therapy and education for people with special needs there are also officially recognized training programmes.
Anthroposophic Medications can be administered orally, via injection, as suppositories, via inhalation, and externally in the form of compresses, gentle rhythmic oil applications, and baths. Talks with the doctor, medications, nursing and external applications may be augmented according to need by artistic therapies, psychotherapy, rhythmical massage therapy and other treatments. Meditation and mindfulness exercises have been an important part of Anthroposophic Medicine from the beginning.
