Using the Bach flower essence remedies for pain relief in my house keeps me busy playing Doctor Mom… seems like ALL the time! I usually use the body mapping as tested and outlined by Dietmar Krämer.
This information can be found in the book New Bach Flower Body Maps: Treatment by Topical Application. It includes a comprehensive atlas of body maps indicating treatment zones for each flower essence and areas of the body.
In my growing experience with using these topical treatments, we have found his body maps to be spot-on accurate. They are a great starting point for using flower essences topically for treating pain, swelling, and acne.
Muscle testing is another fantastic way to “work up” which are the right Bach flower remedy or remedies to use to alleviate pain, detoxify certain parts of the body or clear energetic blockages.
I had to use the body mapping techniques just this morning on my husband. When he sneezed (major pollen season in Georgia) I heard him wincing in pain. I knew something was up… My husband is not a big ole baby! As a matter of fact, I am always yelling at him for turning things over or pulling them off the grill without gloves or utensils! He’s so crazy when it comes to pain. Most of the time he has no idea how he got cuts, scrapes or bruises. You know the manly man type…
It seems last night he pulled the muscles in his neck and shoulder big time. He got up from his chair and “Bitty Kitty”, our thin and most dainty cat moved in on his spot. She loves the cushions in our kitchen chairs and she especially loves them after someone has been sitting in them and they are still warm. When Darren went back to his seat, he tensed up to keep from crushing her. I didn’t realize last night it was as bad as it was.
After one application of the flower essences mixed with plain lotion applied gently to the painful area, most of his pain, soreness & stiffness was GONE! To this he reminded me “You are my favorite GOOD Witch.” He is always joking about “Nobody doing the Voodoo like YOU DO!” If anything I try to be an angel of mercy relieving pain and suffering wherever I find it. Believe me I don’t ever have to go looking far to find it!
I have used this body mapping technique time after time for so many painful issues like… Muscle Aches, Menstrual Cramps, Lower Back Aches, Painful Feet, Bursitis, Tendonitis, Headaches, Acne, Arthritic Knees and too many other “Boo-Boo’s” to count. I am never less than impressed if not shocked by how quick and effective it is!
In fact, we’ve found them so usefully that I am really considering making a line based on body parts. I was inspired after hearing the kiddy song… “Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes”. Isn’t it funny how we get inspiration in the goofiest of places or such random past experiences?!
