- What I Treat -
Plant Spirit Medicine focuses on the underlying constitutional balance of each individual. When this balance improves, the symptoms of physical conditions also improve. PSM brings healing to the underlying cause, the root, of the patient’s physical, emotional or spiritual concerns. This is where sustained healing begins. Medicine for the body cannot heal a broken or suppressed spirit, but medicine for the spirit brings improvements throughout. Physical pain is a message from the body that something is wrong. Similarly, an excess or lack of any emotions, indicate that something is out of balance in the seasons of the spirit.
PSM is rooted in the ancient Chinese Five Elemental theory. Everything within and without is an expression of the dance of these five elements. Every day is a microcosm of a year; morning like Spring, night like Winter. Sometimes this inner cycle does not flow freely, so we may find it hard to get going in the morning or in life. Or we may have trouble sleeping peacefully at night. Joy, fulfilment and a sense of connectedness may elude us. We may feel unsupported and become resigned, over dependant or obsessive. Grief may overwhelm us until we are unable to move on. Fear or despair may dominate our life. Anger and resentment may consume us and damage our relationships.
Plants live harmoniously throughout this cycle of seasonal energy, both annually and daily. That is why they can help us repair at the elemental level.
- What to Expect -
During and after a session the client usually feels quite relaxed. It is best if they can organise themselves to have a quiet time for a while after a treatment.
Treatments are usually timed weekly at first and then will become more spread out depending on individual needs.
Each person’s healing process and the medicine itself, needs to be honoured with the appropriate amount of time needed to heal; epically when the imbalance, the need, the pain has been with the person for a number of years. It is important that the client be prepared to make the necessary commitment to enable their own process of healing to occur.
