Anthroposophical Therapeutic Speech is an artistic therapy that works not only in relation to the physiology of speech and breathing, but also to the entire human body. In conjunction with a doctor's diagnosis and treatment, it may be helpful for disorders such as bronchial asthma, hyperventilation, heart arrhythmia, chronic fatigue, digestive problems and colitis, migraine, rheumatoid diseases, thyroid disorders, iron deficiency, developmental delays, eating disorders, depression and other psychological conditions, shyness, and as a complementary therapy for cancer and AIDS. It is especially helpful in balancing the upper pole (head, nerve-sense system) and the lower pole (metabolic, limb system). Anthroposophic Therapeutic Speech works with the breath, the sounds, the rhythms and content of language through specific speech exercises and texts.
