Bach Flower

Flower essences were used in ancient Egypt as well as India, Asia, Europe, South America, and by the Australian Aborigines. This system was rediscovered and popularised 80 years ago in England by the work of Dr. Edward Bach. Flower essences work quickly and profoundly, addressing psychological, spiritual and physical states to bring about harmony. When emotional balance is restored by the flower essences true healing can occur. Dr. Bach suggested that physical illness is actually a message from our higher self, calling for a change in our mental outlook and way of living. Positive qualities that reside deep inside us are brought forth and emotional blocks are removed by the essences. Their activation allows us to replace fear with courage, insecurity with self-confidence, and hatred with love, thus renewing your passion for life. During a flower remedy consultation your emotional and physical state will be discussed, allowing the practitioner to design a remedy formulated specifically to meet your needs.

Therapeutically, it helps to boost energy and performance, increase metabolism for weight loss, improve circulation and regulate blood pressure. Bioresonance stimulates healing and reduces pain. It is used to improve digestion and enhance detoxification, to stimulate the immune system, and to increase wellbeing by promoting restful sleep and relaxation. For a deeper relaxation effect, light and sound therapy are combined with the use of LED spectacles and headphones. More than one treatment may be recommended for optimum results.
