Dona Totten RN

Anthroposophic Nursing and Rhythmical massage

Dona has been working as a RN for over 20 years in hospital, institutional, and home health settings. In May, 2013 she graduated as an Anthroposophic Nurse, successfully fulfilling all requirements of the North American training. Dona's interests include finding ways to gently and rhythmically restore health, whether through applying hot compresses and wraps, bathing and wrapping the feet and legs, or rubbing in therapeutic oils and ointments in a process known as "Einreibung." Dona also offers Rhythmical Massage, a gentle moving, but dynamic form of touch which works deeply through the skin surface and into the supporting tissues and organs. This form of massage has frequently been compared to the ebbing and flowing of streams of water. Strengthening and supporting substances used in this work include herbs, oils, ointments, and creams which have been produced in anthroposophic pharmacies. Dona strives to address each person’s unique needs, and accompanying them in their journey to wholeness and well being. Dona enjoys playing the piano, choir singing, and water color painting.

How we work

Anthroposophic medicine is a modern integration of conventional medical research and insights, with more traditional and spiritual views of health and illness. Founded nearly 100 years ago, it brings a holistic view that incorporates standard measures of the physical body (lab tests, x-rays, biopsies) and expands them with an understanding of the importance of healthy life rhythms, of a balanced emotional and sensory life, and each person's unique pathway through the healing process.


Anthroposophic medicine is practiced in more than 65 countries worldwide, including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Switzerland, France, Germany, Austria, Italy, the U.K., Sweden, Russia, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa. Anthroposophy (Greek: the wisdom of the human being) was developed by the scientist, philosopher and scholar Rudolf Steiner. His contributions toward a more complete understanding of the human being have also been brought into the realm of education (Waldorf Education), agriculture (Biodynamics), care and education for individuals with special needs (Camphill communities), economics (Rudolf Steiner Foundation), the arts (eurythmy, painting, music) as well as the course and path of self development (Anthroposophic Society in America).
