What are Flower Essences?
Flower essences are a system of vibrational medicine that works on the subtle emotional level of illnesses. They are made by distilling flowers in water and then taking that essence and preserving it in alcohol. This is the mother tincture, which is then used to make preparations.
What are Bach Flower Essences?
There are many different systems and sets of flower essences. Bach Flower Essences were the first flower essences to be made and the most commonly available. Dr. Edward Bach created the flower essence system in the 1920s and 1930s and these 38 flowers are still in use today. You may find a system that is specific to where you live, using the flowers of where you are from, which can often be more potent.

Naturopathy is an area of health that focuses holistically on relevant aspects of human health. Through nutrition, promotion of healthy habits and the use of medicinal herbs and floral essences, seeks balance in the human body.

The Japanese word “Reiki” means “mysterious atmosphere, miraculous sign.” It involves healing of energy points called Chakras. The practioner strategically places their hands lightly on or hovering over certain parts of the client’s body creating a sense of relaxation and wellbeing.
Developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist, Dr. Mikao Usui, Reiki soon spread to the western hemisphere in the 1940s, and to Europe in the 1980s. It’s based on the idea that “life force energy" flows through our bodies, targeting energy fields called Chakras.
When your energy is low, we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. It can enable relaxation, reduce pain, speed healing and reduce other symptoms of illness.
This is a natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. For those who have never experienced and are curious about Reiki I invite you to try it. Even as a form of relaxation, it will help for so many reasons. This is a complementary non-invasive therapy with many benefits that includes mind, body and spirit.
