A new class will begin tomorrow in Tulsa, OK, called "Flower Essences--The Basics." Flower essence therapy was first developed in the early 1900's. Flower essences are infusions of flowers in spring water, usually preserved with brandy, which are used to promote the healing of the body, mind, and spirit. This introductory course will acquaint you with this gentle method of healing through instruction and experience. The summer class is being taught on Wednesdays, June 5, 12, and 19 from 10:00-11:30 (new time). An autumn series will be offered on Mondays, October 13, 20, and 27 from 6:00-7:30 p.m. Information to register can be found at www.ourhealingroots.net.
One example of flower essences is Bach Flower Therapy. In a 2009 Spanish study, 119 subjects received individualized Bach Flower Therapy. Subjects had an average of 3.4 visits. 87.4% of subjects reported good or very good results with the Bach Flower Therapy being very well tolerated overall (only 2% incidence of gastric intolerance).
