Ever heard of Rescue Remedy? This is a famous blend of Bach flower remedies sold in most pharmacies and used for shock, grief, anxiety, pre-exam nerves, etc.
Bach flower remedies are a type of vibrational medicine, a safe and gentle system of healing designed to bring back balance. Flower essences are energetic imprints of the life force of plants which interact with these subtle and evoke specific qualities within us and work by a principle of resonance. They are most effective when they match the core mental or emotional challenges faced by the client.
Commonly used for:
- Feelings of stuckness
- Fears and phobias
- Emotional issues
- Feelings of despair
- Grief and shock
- Feeling out of control
- Lack of direction
- Breaking emotional patterns
- Difficulty sleeping
Flower essences, often described as ‘vitamins for the soul’, do not create euphoria, nor banish pain and conflict. They work by stimulating awareness of our conflicts and challenges, and strengthening our ability to heal and work through the obstacles to our health and growth. They also do not work biochemically (like aspirin for a headache) but emotional stress may be alleviated which in turn may relieve muscular tension.
Flower essences work on an emotional rather than physical level and may help people who suffer from physical illness by addressing the emotional responses to the illness, and by working with the underlying conflicts and tensions that may have contributed to the onset of the illness.
A Bach flower consult, much like the naturopathic consultation, takes 40-60 minutes and provides a comfortable environment in which you will be able to discuss your state of health, current and past emotional issues, past illnesses and traumas, medical, surgical and family history. It will also give me an insight into your personality, likes and dislikes, fears, sleep pattern and the way your body reacts to the environment. At the end of the consult, I will discuss with you the remedies I would like to put in your mixture. This will give you an opportunity to provide input if you strongly disagree with anything I have decided. You will then be given a bespoke mixture to take home which should last approximately 1 month. Follow up consultations also last 60 minutes and are scheduled where required by the client.
