One of the many things I learnt when I was at TASK was the power of Bach flower remedies, and how they can really help deal with and clear emotional/negative mental states. Their power to resolve and help to dissolve feelings of Sadness, feelings of not being Validated, feelings of Grief, Fearful feelings, and Anger is quite amazing, particularly when used with Kinesiological techniques.
When testing a muscle you may test any remedy against any weak muscle. If a remedy is relevant the muscle will go strong, this indicates that there is an emotional issue attached to the weakness, the person does not even have to know what the emotion is. Although when told what the remedy helps with, it may well prompt the person to remember the problem and you can then help further with E.S.R.!
You can obtain the full set of remedies from Healing Herbs (Tel: 01873 890218) or buy them individually, although even for family use I would strongly recommend the full boxed set.
The Remedies are great for children and they really enjoy the colour card 'game' which enables you to find out what is going on inside when they might not even know!
Another very effective treatment is to put the remedies on topically to weak muscles or problem areas when an emotion is involved to communicate and reassure the body it is getting what it needs and that the problem is being dealt with and therefore can let it go!
