Removing Stress in the World One Body at a Time
We have categorized our treatments based upon the Chakra system of the body. This color coded energetic component of the body gives another avenue to explore, discover and enhance one’s understanding of their body. Brief explanations of how each set of treatments corresponds to each of the major 7 chakra are given.
The Blue Treatments: Blue is the color of the Throat chakra. The Throat chakra gives us the energy for complete and honest expression and communication. Often pent-up emotions can affect the physical body– we’ve all heard that stress and unexpressed frustration/anger can result in physical problems such as ulcers. Bach Flower Remedies are used to help us acknowledge and clear these emotional states.
Bach Flowers for Women
These specialized flower homeopathic remedies directly address your emotional state, relieving stress and negativity, promoting psychological and physiological wellbeing.
How do Bach Flowers treatments work?
As women, we often live an emotional conundrum. We are taught it is ok for girls to cry, yet if we fully express our emotions we are told we must be PMSing and/or looked down upon as weak within the male oriented culture we live in.
Dr Edward Bach , developer of the Bach Flower RemediesTM (BFR), based this revolutionary system upon his personal observations of patients whose physical illnesses seemed predisposed by negative psychology or emotional states such as fear, anxiety, insecurity, jealousy, shyness, poor self-image, anger and resentment. “True healing involves treating the very base of the cause of suffering.” Dr Bach said, “Treat people for their emotional unhappiness, allow them to be happy, and they will become well.”
Each flower within his system, preserved by homeopathic methods, provides a gentle coaxing out of a specific emotional state. As homeopathic remedies, only the essence of the flower is preserved in the mother essence. It is from a personal combination of mother essences as a specialized formula that is developed for your specific needs.
BFR are different from other forms of complementary therapies as they do not treat specific physical conditions. Rather, they are relating to the psychological and emotional states that predispose the body to physical dis-ease.
Traditionally BFR are taken as oral droplets. But there are instances when we have “swallowed” our emotions, housing them deep within the body leading to chronic pain. Without a full release of the emotions associated with an accident or trauma, these emotions can also insinuate themselves into our tissues leading to pain or issues that do not easily succumb to treatment. Therefore a Bach Flower Massage (BFM) may be just what is needed.
A negative body image plagues many of us women, from teenage years throughout life. BFM is all about respect, reflection, recovery and empowerment. By helping you connect with both your body and emotions, you will become empowered into a new sense of whole-being.
Bach Flower Massage– Lora’s Specialty
Traditional Massage is proven to relieve tension, decrease stress, and increase the body’s natural ability to heal itself, but what if the problem lies within the emotions. Our emotions are energy and energy needs to move. Naturally we should release and express our emotions fully. Unfortunately we often choose not to. It may be unsafe to. It may be unwise to. We may believe we just shouldn’t. These unexpressed emotions get locked within our body causing pain and discomfort. By adding Bach Flower Remedies to the massage oil, this specialty massage can help unblock and gently release that which is locked, restoring ease and wellbeing.
What to expect during a session
As a massage therapist, Lora has often seen areas of tension that seem to refuse to let go. In order to help alleviate these stubborn areas, she has begun adding the BFR to the oil used within a massage session. A specialized formula is developed based upon your specific condition in one of two unique ways: 1) if you are so inclined and comfortable, you may discuss with Lora specific emotional states that have been difficult for you or 2) you can allow your body to tell her (she has a specialized chart that refers different body areas to each remedy, therefore allowing the body to “talk” about emotional states not foremost in the conscious mind).
After your Bach Flower Massage, you may have a marked improvement in your emotional state. BFR is subtle in its ability to lead you through your deep emotional states. You may feel nothing but well-being and peace from a great massage. Others have deemed this unique type of massage as their “Moody Massage”; hence, they have strong emotional releases afterward. It all depends upon you and how deep your emotional states are.
Although Lora is not a Psychologist, she is more than happy to listen, and if needed, can refer you to someone better suited to your needs. Her ultimate goal with offering this treatment is to empower each woman to embrace her emotions and use their power to live happy, healthy and peace filled lives.
