Loey Colebeck

Loey is an accredited clinical Flower Essence Therapist through SEDIBAC (Catalonia Society for the Study and Diffusion of Dr. Bach’s Therapy), and Trauma Constellation facilitator. Her extensive training took place in Spain where Bach Flower Therapy flourishes as an advanced clinical practice for both body and mind, as physician Dr. Bach originally intended. She provides a truly holistic view in treatment.

Loey has worked with clients to successfully treat physical conditions, such as migraines, eczema, fever illnesses, trauma, menstrual complaints, breathing and circulation among many others. Likewise, emotional, mental and existential states (which affect the body), such as grief and loss, trauma, anxiety, self-esteem, identity, family issues, insomnia and focus, spiritual work such as purpose, and deep issues surrounding sexuality, all of which are supported by her broad training, study and practice.

In treatment sessions, we will approach the mind, heart and physicality as parts of the whole, always with respect and at the client’s pace. Loey uses Chinese Medicine, Taoist theory, Gestalt psychotherapy and Family Constellations as bases upon which to support our holistic process. She prepares personalized Flower Essence formulas in oral drops &/or in creams for topical application. She may also make dietary adjustments and suggest movement and meditation exercises and herbal remedies to support our holistic healing work. For information about “Constellation work” for perinatal and ancestral healing, see “treatments”. As each individual is unique, so is each healing process. Loey provides customized tools and support.

A Minnesota native, Loey’s interest in natural medicine began in the early 1990’s when she started making herbal medicines in rural Wisonsin. After graduating with degrees in Spanish, fine art and dance, she studied Herbal Medicine at Pacific School of Herbal Medicine in San Francisco in 1998. There, she began using flower essences.

In 2003, Loey moved to Spain where she spent a decade of deep and intensive growth, healing and discovery both as teacher and student, client and therapist. In 2009, she earned her certificate in Bach Flower Therapy from the Superior Institute of Traditional Medicine (ISMET), in Barcelona. She continued Flower Essence Therapy (FET) training in Barcelona at various institutes: psychotherapy tools for flower essence therapists with author Carmen Rosety at Anthmon Institute; Chinese Medicine and FET, and Taoist Sexuality and FET with author Pablo Noriega; FET for pathologies in the female reproductive system with Carme Roig; and a vast range of other applications for Flower Essence Therapy during weekly seminars held at SEDIBAC. In 2011, Loey began working with the powerful Australian Bush essences which she now offers to clients. During the decade she lived in Spain, Loey provided sensual dance therapy and integrated FET and movement therapy to help women through sexuality issues such as femininity, suspended menstruation, menopause, effects of abuse, low sexual desire, grief and loss, and ancestry.

Besides dance, Loey is also trained in Pilates to provide core and pelvic floor psycho-physical strength, and holds a practitioner’s certificate in Traditional Japanese Reiki.

In 2013, Loey lectured at the fourth bi-annual SEDIBAC Flower Essence Therapy Congress along with some 30 other FET professionals. She has published articles in the SEDIBAC quarterly and translated Pablo Noriega’s book, Bach Flower Essences and Chinese Medicine to English (Inner Traditions, 2016). As the field is very advanced in Spain and Latin America, with many books and scientific studies published in Spanish, she has more book translations planned for the future.

Loey prescribes flower essences based on clinical observation, in accordance with the SEDIBAC code of ethics for accredited professional Flower Essence Therapists.
