Hi, I am Mandie Danks, a Flower Essence & Reiki practitioner (and dog training coach) based in North Ayrshire, Scotland where I live with 2 girls, my dog Flynn and husband – I really should mention him before the dog!
I first came across Flower Remedies, around 20 years or so ago (where does the time go?) when I was competing in the show ring as a professional handler. Nerves had started to get the better of me, so looking for something natural to help calm me I came across Rescue Remedy©. I have to say I was skeptical at first but once I had discovered how effective this little yellow bottle was for me I set off on a path to discover more about Bach Flower Remedies and other essences.
As I started to learn more I began to use essences for myself, my dogs and my family then I started to mention Essences to some of my dog training clients when their pets were making a certain amount of progress but then seemed to hit a wall. It wasn’t long before friends started to ask if I could recommend something to help them, their children or their pets and from there the word started to spread. Since those early days I have gone on to study how Flower & Vibrational Essences can help support us through the challenges and stresses of everyday life and how in times of turmoil they can bring relief, calm and clarity to our thoughts. Essences are now very much part of my everyday life and I have studied with the Bach Centre to qualify as a registered Bach Flower Remedy Practitioner and hold membership of the British Flower & Vibrational Essences Association Essences. In addition to offering Flower Essences I am also a Reiki practitioner, working with people and animals, dogs in particular.
Outside of work, if you can call it that, you will find me outdoors in the woods, swimming in the sea (when it’s not too cold), snugged up with a book (I’m a bit of a serial studier) or just hanging out with my family. I look forward to chatting with you sometime and feel free to get in touch either through the contact form below or pop over to Facebook to say hi.
About Flower & Vibrational Essences
Flower & Vibrational Essences (or remedies as they are also known) are a safe, gentle and effective form of energy healing suitable to be used by people and animals of all ages. The Bach Flower Remedies are perhaps the most well-known of the Essences but there are many different ranges of available all working to help restore emotional and energetic balance.
Essences can help support us to let go of emotions which no longer serve us, gain clarity when we are struggling to see our way forward, find our inner confidence, deal with the stresses that life has a habit of throwing at us and help us to work through fears or anxieties such as flying.
Each individual Essence is created by imprinting the unique energetic signature from flowers, plant, crystals or other natural sources onto water which is then preserved with alcohol or other suitable substance. From this tincture stock bottles are produced which can then be used singularly or in a blend tailored to your individual needs.
It is important to say that Flower & Vibrational Essences are very much about supporting us on an emotional rather than a physical level and are safe to be used alongside any medications being taken or therapies.
