Emotional Wellbeing and Healing with Flower Essences
Dr Bach, a Physician, Homeopath and researcher, first developed Flower Essences as a system of emotional healing in the 1930s. After wandering the British countryside for a few years, he identified 38 negative emotional states, and created a flower remedy for each one. Here in Australia, Ian White a Naturopath and Herbalist, realised that modern life had many more complex emotional states than Dr Bach had accounted for, and developed a range of Flower Essences with Australian plants and flowers. He travelled the country and created what now stands at 69 different flower essences, most of which are native to Australia.
Naturopaths commonly use Flower Essences as part of their treatments, to help address emotional issues that may play a part in the overall healing of their patient. While there are many biochemical and physical causes of emotional distress, there are others that are simply caused by the stresses and trials of modern life, as well as simply being human!
While I am qualified to prescribe Bach Flower Remedies as well, at present I only work with Australian Bush Flower Essences (ABFE) which is just a matter of my personal choice. Bach remedies can be available with prior arrangement.
A Flower Essence consultation with me will consist of a brief discussion and some questions from me, followed by a Flower Essence Card reading. Once we have established which Essences will be of benefit to you, I will custom make an Essence for you to take home with you.
Flower Essences are perfectly safe, will not clash with any prescription medications or supplements, and can be taken with confidence.
A 30 minute Flower Essence Consultation is $65 and includes a reading - with images of the cards emailed to you if you wish, and a Flower Essence to take home.
