Dietmar Kramer, one of Germany's most innovative practitioners of Bach Flower Therapy, has developed powerful new therapeutic applications that remain true to Edward Bach's wish for simplicity and ease of use. New Bach Flower Body Maps details Kramer's unique system of diagnosis, in which 242 areas of the body are correlated with each Bach Flower Remedy, and are mapped out in diagrams indicating the relationship between remedy and body zone.
By reading the body maps, one can treat both physical symptoms and their emotional causes more directly. Physical ailments are relieved when the flower essences are applied to the skin, and underlying emotional problems improve more rapidly after topical treatment than after taking the drops orally. Preventive treatments are also possible using the body maps.
The author demonstrates that the effectiveness of the flower remedies is greatly increased when they are applied in the form of compresses or ointments. Kramer's procedures are illustrated by many case studies which confirm the effectiveness of this significant new extension of Bach Flower Therapy. Bach Flower Remedies are also used in beauty therapy. Many practical examples illustrate the use of Bach Flowers in skin care.
