Flower healing dates back to the pre-Christian era and indigenous Australians have been using flowers for therapeutic purposes for generations. Modern flower essences were developed by Dr Edward Bach in the 1920’s and since then there have been a number of additions to the family namely Ian Whites Australian Bush Flower Essences and the FES Quintessentials. At Butterfly Wellness we are practiced in the use of all three and will use them singly or in combination depending on the nature of the clients condition.
Like all natural forms of healing flower essence therapy is holistic in approach, that is it is the client who is treated not their symptoms or disease. The strength of flower essences lies in their ability to heal not only on a physical level but on an emotional one as well. Many cultures and holistic healing therapies believe that dis-ease stems from an imbalance in the ones emotional make-up which, if left to its own devices, will manifest as a physical problem or disease. Therefore when you heal on an emotional level you will also create profound healing in the physical body, healing which is deep and lasting.
Flower essences are a safe and effective therapy that, simple though they seem to be, can bring about profound healing and change. Everyone can use flower essences, they do not adversely interact with either prescribed or over the counter drugs, nor are they contra indicated for children. In fact children do remarkably well on flower essences and with them there is no fear of any harmful or unwanted side effects. Even animals can benefit from the wonderful healing power of flowers.

Homeopathy was developed by the German physician and chemist Samuel Hahnemann more than 200 years ago. It is a holistic form of healing that is designed to work with the body’s natural healing processes rather than against them thereby promoting lasting good health and well-being.
The founding principal of homeopathy is that ‘like cures like’ meaning that what in large doses can make you sick in small doses can cure you. This principle is the basis for vaccinations although in that case the small dose of the substance is used as a preventative rather than a cure.
Homeopathy is a safe and effective way of treating the causes of illness. It can be used on its own, in conjunction with other natural therapies or with conventional medications without any adverse effects. During the course of treatment it is possible that one experiences a return of old symptoms, this is because homeopathy gets to the root of the problem eliminating all causes of disease rather than just having an effect on the immediate. A healing crisis may also be experienced whereby you feel an intensity of symptoms which will be followed by a greater feeling of wellness as the body begins its healing process.
Homeopathy can be used to treat any problems from acute illness to long-term chronic conditions. It is practiced the world over and is recognised as a legitimate form of health care by the World Health Organisation.
A homeopathic consultation may come as a surprise to some, particularly if you are not used to the holistic approach. The initial consultation can take up to an hour and a half, unless the complaint is an acute one. The reason for this is that a detailed case study is required to ensure that the right remedy is given. The consultation will take into consideration all aspects of the problem, the physical, the emotional, the mental and any prevailing environmental factors that may be causing concern.
Homeopathy is particularly beneficial for children and can be used to treat the family pet with wonderful results.

HOLISTIC HEALTHCARE for ANIMALS
Animals have been treating themselves naturopathically for thousands of years, instinctively knowing what natural substance will provide them with the best healing outcomes and anyone who has watched a dog eat grass can see that they are still doing it today. In fact it is from observing animals that much of our original naturopathic knowledge was gleaned.
Animal naturopathy takes a holistic approach to wellness, one that looks at the causes of disease rather than just treating the symptoms. It is a non-invasive form of healing that aims to promote good health and wellbeing in all animals.
Using herbal medicine, homeopathy, essential oils, flower essences, massage techniques and nutritional supplements animal naturopathy encourages the animals’ own healing system to bring back balance and restore good health and vitality.
Diet and lifestyle are also important factors that are taken into consideration when focusing on a natural approach to wellness.
Sonya Marshall is a qualified naturopath, homeopath, aromatherapist and massage therapist with certified training in animal behaviour and animal natural healthcare.

Crystals have been used for their healing energies since the beginning of the human era and they are still viewed today as a natural part of holistic medicine.
Crystal healing is a form of vibrational medicine. Crystals carry their own unique energy signature, they have the ability to hold, amplify and emit energy vibrations and they can absorb, focus and direct the energy in our etheric energy fields to cleanse and rebalance them.
Crystal therapy can offer a deep and refreshing form of healing. Energetic blockages can be removed, ailments can be relieved and balance and harmony can be brought back to our souls.
Castlemaine Natural Health uses crystal essences to create healing remedies that can be used on their own or in conjunction with other therapies, remedies or supplements. We also offer a range of crystals and are always happy to help you determine the best way you can bring their wonderful healing properties into your life.
