External applications are a specialty of the anthroposophical approach to health care. Healing substances are applied to the skin to stimulate the inner healing impulses. This can be as simple as you applying an ointment for an achy 'rheumatic' knee. Or you may visit a trained health professional, such as an Anthroposophic Nurse for a consultation and an individualised treatment programme that could consist of a footbath followed by rhythmical massage. Often the practitioner will teach you how to carry on with treatments yourself.
A list of some practitioners in New Zealand and Australia can be found on the Anthroposophic Practitioners page.
