Over many years of study, English physician Dr. Edward Bach discovered 38 flower remedies that act on the disharmony within the patient and pave the way toward recovery. Intended for practitioners and lay readers alike, Bach Flower Therapy describes these remedies and their underlying psychological concepts. Author Mechthild Scheffer is Europe's leading practitioner of the method.
Bach Flowers for Crisis Care examines 50 common life crises and how the 38 Bach Flower remedies can turn crises into growth opportunities. The appendix lists strengths and benefits of each flower, explaining how to personalize remedies for your current condition.
Scheffer provides a therapeutic profile for each remedy, diagnostic guidelines, interview questions, progress evaluations, and body maps to guide both practitioner and novice to the proper remedies for many emotional and physical ailments.
The first practitioner to recognize the psychological underpinnings of the Bach flower remedies, Scheffer demonstrates that emotional and physical well-being are inextricably linked and shows how the therapies can be a powerful tool not only for healing individual symptoms, but for putting the course of one's life back on track. Includes a thorough diagnostic questionnaire and color plates of the most popular flowers.
