Dr. Nelson Bach designed the flower remedies in the early 1930's and his work has reached internationally from his Mount Vernon facility in England.

Flower remedies can have a profound effect on our moods and general outlook on life. The Nelson Bach remedies can create great change and yet they work gently and subtly.

Color therapy is widely used in homes and businesses and this discussion will focus on its regenerative and healing uses for home and personal use.

Different ways to incorporate color will illustrate how simple changes can create profound effects. We will discuss how using the vibration of color moods can be uplifted, clarity can be achieved, and increased well being manifests. Color therapy, also known as chromotherapy, is often facilitated in the healing rooms of alternative health practitioners.

Methods of infusing color into our bodies will be discussed and a personal treatment will allow participants to feel the changes created by absorbing certain colors into the body and auric field. Personal color choices will be discussed and individuals will have opportunity to experience different ways of being with a color or range of color. Color is simply a form of visible light, of electromagnetic energy. All the primary colors reflected in the rainbow carry their own unique healing properties.
