24 participants in 4 patient groups

Eurythmy Therapy Movement "R"
Experimental group
Description:
EYT exercise "R": Positioned between two steps and forearms parallel to the ground, the patient performs a rolling movement like wheels on a wagon. The movement is positioned below shoulder height and is initiated from the shoulder blade.
Treatment:
Other: Eurythmy Therapy Movement "R"
Eurythmy Therapy Movement "L"
Experimental group
Description:
EYT exercise "L": In a circular and flowing movement the patient leads his hands upwards in front of his body and down again laterally. During elevation of the arms, the patient performs a small hop onto the toes and into knock knees. Lowering his arms, he releases the legs and straightens up again.
Treatment:
Other: Eurythmy Therapy Movement "L"
Eurythmy Therapy Movement "B"
Experimental group
Description:
EYT exercise "B": The patient describes an embracing movement with both arms and the left leg while balancing on one foot. He then returns to the initial position and repeats the movement using the other leg.
Treatment:
Other: Eurythmy Therapy Movement "B"
Normal movements during walking or standing
Active Comparator group
Description:
Control exercise: Participants slowly walk across the room, their arms swinging in a natural way. This was designed to control for the most basic upright movement, shifting thermoregulation from resting conditions to exercise conditions, triggering non-thermal factors.
Treatment:
Other: Normal movements during walking or standing
