Flower Essences† Flower essences were first discovered in the 1930ís by renowned British physician and scientist Dr. Edward Bach. The flower essences act on the mental and emotional aspects of life to gently restore balance and emotional equilibrium. The true nature of oneís self is far beyond recognition or identification with emotional judgments. We are not our emotions. We are more. Through there ability to help us see our true nature, the 38 Bach flower essences allow us to transform fear into courage, insecurity into confidence and uncertainty in decisiveness. When we see our true nature we can not go back to the negative thinking we had before. So we have taken a step forward in our life and are overall more mentally and emotionally balanced and less stressed. Read more.
Metamorphic Technique The Metamorphic
practitioner uses a light touch on points known as the spinal reflexes in the
feet, hands and head.† We all have great
potential, but due to limiting beliefs that we hold about ourselves and our
lives, we tend to get ourselves stuck in particular patterns that kee p us from
fully realizing that potential. These patterns can show up in various ways -
physical or mental illness, emotional problems, limiting attitudes or repeating
patterns of behavior. Beneath these external symptoms are corresponding
patterns of energy. The Metamorphic Technique acts as a catalyst to this energy
(also known as the life force), gently enabling you to transform your patterns
and begin to move from who you are, to who you can be.†† Whereas people may seek medicine or therapy
because they want to be healed of something, they come to the Metamorphic
Technique because they want to transform their patterns. It is an empowering
tool for enabling people to 'get out of their own way', let go of past
limitations and move forward in their lives.
Reiki Reiki is one of the more widely known forms of energy healing. Energy Healing involves direct application of Chi for the purpose of strengthening the clientís energy system. The practitioner places her hands upon the person to be healed with the intent for healing to occur, and then the energy begins flowing. The energy knows where to go and what to do.† It draws through the healer exactly that amount of energy the recipient needs. All this happens without direct conscious intervention by the healer.† Reiki is capable of healing anything because it works at very fundamental levels of reality. Emotional difficulties are just as healable as physical ones since emotional issues are even more energetic.
Therapeutic Touch This therapy was developed by a nurse to help people who could not be touched. She found that by holding her hands over points of heat and cold on the body she could affect pain relief for that person.
