"In bio-mechanical approaches to health it is regarded that structure governs function, however the Podo-Rhacidian Mobilisation Therapy regards emotions to be the underlying cause of structural instability."

PHYTOBIOPHYSICS is a relatively new, very gentle therapy which uses flowers and colour to help promote self-healing. It has helped both supermodel Jodie Kidd and Michael Cable's daughter Natasha to regain their health and vitality and, although there is no scientific evidence to show that Phytobiophysics works, there are plenty of personal testaments to its success.

Complementary practitioner Diana Mossop developed this philosophy nearly 20 years ago and there are now about 4,000 practitioners worldwide. The basic premise is similar to that of traditional Chinese medicine: that our health depends on the free flow of chi energy, the life force within our bodies. When this is impeded by factors such as physical or emotional trauma, poor diet, pollutants and other toxins in the environment, the result is ill health.

According to Diana, Phytobiophysics uses the inherent energies of flowers and other plants to rebalance energy flow, act as an antidote to toxins, improve the body's ability to ' absorb nutrients from food, boost the immune system and promote self-healing.

"The vibrational energies of flowers resonate and work like a tuning fork within the body, restoring harmony and health," she explains.

Like other flower remedies, Diana's formulae are produced by infusing flowers in sunlit water. However, they differ from others in that each of the 20 formulae contains the essence of thousands of flowers instead of just one.

The colour of the flowers in each formula is also important and links them with specific parts of the body. For example, Flower Formula 4 contains the essence of violet flowers — including thistle, foxglove and lavender — and is linked to the crown. This may be used to treat problems such as psychological disorders and insomnia.

This system corresponds with the Eastern idea of the body being divided into seven chakras, or energy centres, each of which has its own colour, the crown chakra being violet.

What happens

As well as taking a detailed case history, a practitioner of Phytobiophysics will use a diagnostic technique called electro-acupoint testing. A probe attached to a device called a galvanometer is placed on different points on the body, including those used in acupuncture. This measures the body's electromagnetic, (or energy) field and indicates possible causes of your ill health. Patients then help choose their own flower formulae from a colour chart. "People are attracted to the colours they need for healing," explains Diana.

Other holistic methods, such as gentle manipulation and massage, nutritional supplementation and dietary advice, may also be used to aid the healing process.

As practitioners of Phytobiophysics are generally qualified in other areas of complementary and orthodox medicine, such as homoeopathy and physiotherapy, they may also incorporate these therapies into their work with flowers and colours.

"Phytobiophysics enhances a patient's ability to respond to other treatments and medication," claims Diana.

During treatment sessions, people often become very tearful. Occasion-ally they experience a healing crisis -–  that is, they feel worse before starting to get better. “This is the body’s way of telling us it is strong and active enough to recover,” says Diana.

What it can do for you

Phytobiophysics is said to help relieve physical ailments including digestive disorders, hormonal imbalances, migraine, skin complaints, cardiovascular disorders and allergies, as well as emotional and psychological problems such as depression, grief and addiction. Some parents of autistic children, and also cancer patients, say that it has helped to relieve their problems.

Practicals

A course of treatment typically takes from two to six sessions, with an interval of two to four weeks between each session.

Prices for treatment vary, but are likely to be about £50 for the initial consultation and then £30 for each follow-up session.

You can also buy the formulae, together with a colour chart and instructions, from selected outlets and by mail order.
