Bach flowers - Bowen

Post by AlleyRose on Sat Apr 26, 2014 10:27 am

Bach flower remedies were formulated by a Welsh physician, pathologist and homeopath, Dr Edward Bach in 1930. Utilising the essences of various English wild flowers, he created 38 different remedies. His objective was to use the healing energy of the flower essence to reconnect the body and soul so as to treat the person and therefore help correct illness.
Australia's equivalent to Bach flower remedies are Australian bush flower essences. These are derived from Australian bush flowers with about 64 remedies in total, but only about 14 being commonly used.
Flower remedies and essences aim to treat the mood and the state of mind (or outlook), not the actual physical condition. They address any negative emotions and mental conflicts, intending to restore balance and harmony to facilitate the body to heal itself. One commonly used remedy is Rescue Remedy, usually used for shock, trauma, stress, and labour pains. The Australian equivalent is known as Emergency essence.
Remedies and essences are usually in a liquid concentrate called stock, preserved in alcohol. The small amounts of alcohol used to preserve the stock is not believed to be sufficient to cause harm during pregnancy, but some caregivers recommend alternatives to administer the remedy for pregnant women and young children, such as vinegar or glucose water. Remedies are generally obtained through health food stores and chemists, or through a practitioner with knowledge in the area of flower remedies or essences.
Flower remedies and essences are thought to be safe to use during pregnancy, labour and birth. If one remedy doesn't work, it is possible to just try another one. Self-treating is generally acceptable, however, if you feel unfamiliar with the remedies it may be helpful to seek a practitioner trained to choose the most appropriate remedy, generally through observations and asking questions.
The Bowen technique was developed by Tom Bowen from Victoria, Australia in the 1970's. It is a system of gentle, precise movements across muscles, nerves and connective tissue in specific areas of the body, with frequent pauses to allow the body time to respond to the moves. The movement causes the neuromuscular system to reset all related tension levels and stimulate energy flow with the aim of promoting natural healing.
Treatments are often used to help maintain good health or treat conditions such as sciatica, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, sprains, joint problems, migraines, sports injuries, stress and tension, neck strains and repetitive strain injury (RSI). The practitioner should be trained in Bowen, with a recognised academy and be accredited.
Bowen is thought to be safe to use during pregnancy, but ideally the practitioner should have experience working with pregnant women. The body's ligaments and joints are more flexible and easily strained during pregnancy due to increased hormone levels.
Some women use Bowen after the birth to help realign their body. It is preferred by some because of its gentle and precise technique that does not tend to use undue force and pressure. Bowen has also been used to stimulate the respiratory system of newborns who have a degree of respiratory distress after birth.
