Jo is currently studying Bach Flower Remedies and invites everyone to volunteer as case studies.
Jo has used the crisis formula, more often known as Rescue Remedy, to aid her whilst regaining her riding confidence. She has also used it on her horses when they are placed in stressful situations such as attending a clinic at a new location.
With no other experience of the remedies, but with an unbound curiosity, Jo attended the Level 1 course at Mount Vernon, the Bach Centre in Oxfordshire, home of Dr Bach himself. The course gave a basic grounding in each of the 38 remedies, their benefits and uses, and experience in selecting and producing bespoke remedies. Jo then attended a Level 2 course which gives more detail on each flower essence as well as assessing similarities and differences to enable selection of the most appropriate essences when creating a bespoke remedy.
The remedies are flower essences and work to balance moods and emotions. From a holistic point of view Jo feels that her equine clients will benefit if their riders and owners are less tense and nervous around them, for example. However, the remedies were researched by Dr Bach to work on all emotions, so Jo is willing and able to help anyone, not just those who are nervous around horses.
Recently Jo has completed the Level 3 course and successfully passed the first of three assessments, and is currently working through the remaining two to become a qualified Bach Foundation Registered Practitioner.In the meantime, whilst Jo is studying, she is looking for volunteers to be case studies.
Case study volunteers are required to undertake an initial consultation either over the phone, via email, or face to face, take the given remedy for a period of three weeks, and a follow up consultation at the end of the three weeks. There is currently no charge for the consultations, however a small charge of £12 (plus £3 P&P if required) is made to cover the cost of the remedy themselves.
