Dr Bach MD pioneered the use of flower essences as homeopathic type remedies to treat the emotions. Many ills have an emotional root cause. Since Bach’s time other flower essences have been developed. Today, we have Australian, Californian & African flower essences all based on the same homeopathic principles.

The Bach Centre

Based at Mount Vernon, the home and workplace of Dr Edward Bach during the years when he completed research into his flower remedy system. “When we have given freedom to every creature, everything around us, then we are free ourselves ” – Dr Edward Bach, 1932

Bach Foundation Registered Animal Practitioners (BFRAPs) are specially trained to look at the behaviour of animals and use this to identify how animals feel, so as to make accurate remedy choices. www.bachcentre.com/centre/bfrani.htm
