Testimonials from Clients
"Soo Hwa's ability to recognize what most do not has allowed her to employ tools and
techniques that were largely unavailable and certainly under-utilized. By employing one
or more of unique therapies such as Quantum-Touch, The SomEsse Process or Bach Flower
Essences, and by knowing what combination to use on a given client, she can move that
client toward a more balanced existence. Positive progress can proceed as fast as the
client is willing to go. This is the most rapid, least traumatic, totally non-invasive,
drug-free healing I am aware of. I am very grateful that such powerful and yet gentle
techniques have fallen into the hands of a truly compassionate person."

"Finding Soo Hwa has been the best thing I have ever done for myself. Through her
abilities to facilitate The SomEsse Process, she has been a major catalyst towards
my own personal growth and healing. I feel that the process has allowed more of my
true self to emerge from the prison of acquired emotions to which it has been sentenced
for most of my life. An important necessity when working in the healing arts profession."

"I received four
SomEsse sessions with Soo Hwa, over the course of an eight-week period. During that
time, I became less angry and impatient. My relationships with my spouse and co-workers
improved. I attribute the positive changes to the work I did with Soo Hwa. The SomEsse
Process is very effective for releasing the frozen patches of energy from past trauma
and freeing the body to channel joy and love. Soo Hwa also blends other modalities with
the SomEsse Process to round out her unique healing repertoire. I am grateful for all
I've healed and learned from her. I whole-heartedly recommend her and her healing services
for anyone seeking health and happiness."

"I came to Soo Hwa to do emotional work that might help in curing a 10-year-old chronic
cough my mother used to have too. I also have a left hip problem caused by a sports
accident nine years ago, which Soo Hwa sees as related to the cough problem. First of
all, in Soo herself, I met one of the most caring, kind, balanced, harmonious and loving
people I know. Then, with the help of The SomEsse Process, I was able to notice and
release ways of perceiving that had become adapted and deeply ingrained in my childhood
and youth. I don't think I'm finished yet, if I ever will be. In Soo's presence, I feel
so reassured and secure that I can allow anything to arise. In my case, I have cried most
of the time we worked together. I don't cry much normally, and surely not with people.
I've also been astonished, again and again, how precisely and clearly, with what intuition
and wisdom, Soo recognized the adaptations I had made to my own later detriment. There was
a genuine, compassionate, truthful person totally present for me, most eager to help me on
the path to living my true essence. The Bach Flowers she selected to support my process
were very effective. I noticed clear shifts in feeling, in behavior, and in perceptions
while and after taking them. And if I were able to pay more attention to my healing
process, I'd notice even more. I feel deeply grateful that Soo is who she is and does
what she does. A blessing for whoever works with her.

"I have done energy work for about 10 years, however there are some blocks that just
don't seem to want to move. The Bach Flower Essences were a gentle but powerful way to
release some of those blocks. With the very first dose of BFE I could feel energy move
along the gall bladder meridian in my left calf. The response was almost instantaneous,
which really surprised me. This type of energy movement continued for a day or two. After
that the response was not so obvious. I experienced a greater calm and an improvement in
my bodily functions (digestion and elimination).
The SomEsse Process has been an amazing experience for me. These processes have given me
another opportunity to experience my body as my wisdom teacher. The various pains and
aches are messages that there is unfinished business I need to address. Addressing that
business is a multi-faceted effort. It has removed the blocks to my energy triggered by
events that I no longer remember; facilitated a deeper awareness of my deepest, truest
self; brought about a positive energy connection between me and the person associated with
the hurtful events or events, thereby benefiting not only me, but the other person as well.
When those kinds of positive energy connections are established, the entire universe
benefits. That is quite an awesome thought!
For many years I have realized that my body is my wisdom teacher, however I had limited
ways to access that wisdom. I feel that I am learning more ways to listen to Her. This
frequently makes me mindful of a comment made during a retreat, again, many years ago:
"Anything we do for our physical well being is a spiritual practice."

"Thank you for the powerful session last week. The rigidity and extreme tightness in
my mid-back is so, so much better. And my stomach spasming is better, too. That
controlling pattern and the false power energy patterns in me have really gotten a
good shake-up. Wow! Your SomEsse work is the most effective and powerful way to access
my unconscious material I have found. Thank you very much."
~ Deborah Barber ~
"The session we had helped me very much to awaken to parts of myself I had no idea
were there ... and shift and move to new beliefs, ideas, and ways of being that I was
not able to or thought possible before now. I have come to a HUGE place of acceptance
I have never been at before and it feels so good and gives me so much peace. Thank you
for your service and helping me and the universe take another step towards peace!"

"Since the 1970s I've had two slipped disks in my lower back. I went to many doctors
first and all they did was put me on drugs that really ruined me mentally. Of course
they wanted to operate and I said no. My M.D. told me it would take me over a year to
recover from the operation. I had physical therapy too but that didn't solve the problem.
My back was the first thing Soo Hwa worked on. I used to experience severe pain in my back
and I don't have those serious problems anymore. I would go to the chiropractor at times for
adjustments but considering the fact that I used to have trouble walking at times and wore a
back brace before - my back is 200% better. In1997, I had tendonitis in both my hands and
arms. I went to 22 doctors - every type of doctor you can imagine for years. Soo Hwa and I
worked together and my arms are 95% better.
A lump was discovered around my chest area. Lump moved around to different areas of my
breast and under arm. I had seen a doctor about similar breast issues before where I had
a cyst fixed. I also had a nipple-bleeding problem too. When the lump appeared I didn't
want to go to the doctors, who wanted to operate. After seeing Soo Hwa for 2-3 sessions,
the lump was gone. I have not had any problem since that time. I finally decided to stop
going to the doctors, psychologist, and chiropractors, massage person, physical therapy
and work with Soo Hwa exclusively. I am very grateful for all of her help, knowledge,
compassion, honesty, sincerity, and passion with her work. I am so lucky to have met
her and am continuing to learn more about the process and how my mind and body works.
Soo Hwa gives me hope and encouragement."

"I really believe that the Bach Remedies have made a difference for me. In fact,
I felt it immediately and intuitively. How to describe it? There are physical
manifestations. I am sleeping better - a less troubled sleep. I have more energy.
My system just seems to be working better. My (slight) constipation has gone;
food tastes better. But the spiritual effects are more noticeable. I seem to be
in better tune. Together. Balanced. Lighter. I don't know quite how to describe it.
I have done some reading into the Bach Remedies (incurable researcher), and find I
am in agreement with the basic principles. I think you captured my "deficiencies"
or "qualities" quite well. So just to let you know that you are making a difference
in my life. Thank you."

"Thank you so much for all your help with both our kids. I especially want to acknowledge
the amazing results we have experienced with Bach Flower Essences as you have recommended
them for our son Daniel.
At 10 months, Daniel had a virus of some kind. Toward the end of the week, we noticed
something 'funny' with his face. Well, long story short, as you know, after all the yucky
tests the neurologist could come up with to rule out certain things like meningitis, he was
diagnosed with bilateral Bell's Palsy. His face was partially paralyzed. They (the doctors)
told us it would eventually go away. We didn't want to just wait and see. We pursued
several alternative healing methods - and didn't much care which one worked as long as
Daniel's face went back to normal!
After contacting you and having a consultation, we started Daniel on the essences in every
formula bottle all day. Your questions get right to the point and seem very intuitive. I
really felt like you were getting to know Daniel over the phone and I trusted that you were
putting together a safe combination that suited him. After 5 days, you told us to apply 2
of the doses each day topically. From that day forward, his face started coming back to
normal. We kept up with that "prescription" until the palsy was completely gone.
We are thrilled. And, he is doing great. In fact, our 3 year old is a great helper in
remembering both Daniel's and her own 'fairy drops'."

"My adopted son has been having difficulty with impulsiveness, anger management, moods,
and opposition and defiance. The reports from school placed him in the ADHD spectrum
with high marks on all counts (average 8.75 on scale of 10 for 17 criteria). Over the
course of approximately one month, my son has gotten unsolicited praise for his behavior
in the classroom. The previous ratings for ADHD dropped within just one month so the
average is now 7.65. Prior to and during this period, we have been using HANDLE techniques
to improve my son's cognitive abilities. The program runs six months and began 12/1/03.
The addition of the Bach Flowers in mid-January appeared to have helped my son 'turn the
corner'. However it happened, I am grateful to have found a non-toxic and safe intervention
to help him better realize his potential. He now says he's 'just like all the other kids'.
That's huge at 9 years old!"

"Soo Hwa Yeo introduced me to the Bach Flower Essences about a year ago. I have been
working to heal myself for many years and remove what felt like blocks to my being as
effective in my life as I knew I could be. I was battling depression, trying to set
boundaries with the people in my life, healing past hurts from my childhood and other
issues that seemed to persist even with years of counseling and other methods of healing
such as hypnotherapy, massage therapy, and even anti-depressants. I would notice
improvements but still the feeling of blockage and being stopped in my life persisted.
Finally, in what I believe was an answer to a prayer, I was introduced to the practices
of Bach Flower Essences and the SomEsse Process by my massage therapist, also a client
of Soo Hwa.
The first time I visited Soo Hwa, I felt a sense of her commitment to empowering her
clients to heal and become fully themselves. Soo Hwa created a wonderfully safe and
spiritual environment where unhurried time was spent talking about what was happening
in my life. We would do the SomEsse Process and I could feel energy that no longer served
me release from my body. The results of the SomEsse session and our conversation provided
her with the information to skillfully determine what essences to put into my personal
formula. I began to incorporate taking the drops into my life very easily. I'd keep the
bottle in a convenient place and would take four drops four times a day. Over time, I
noticed subtle differences in myself. Situations that would normally upset me no longer
caused me stress. I began to notice that it was easier for me to set boundaries with the
people in my life. Over time, I was no longer struggling to get through each day but
feeling a sense of well being and energy that propelled me to accomplish my goals.
After I had experienced such positive results with the Bach Flower Essences, I brought my
10-year-old daughter to Soo Hwa. Christine was experiencing spontaneous outbursts of anger
and had put on some weight around her stomach. I felt that she had some emotional issues
that were causing the physical symptoms. Our chiropractor had given her some supplements
that seemed to help to a degree with her stomach but it had not completely healed.
Christine immediately felt as ease with Soo Hwa. It was very easy to get her to take the
drops on her own where it had been a struggle each day to get her to take the supplements
which were in pill form. Over the next few weeks, as the drops performed their energetic
magic on my daughter, she began to feel calmer and her stomach was healing. Now, her
stomach is healed and she seldom has an outburst.
My teenage daughter benefited from the Bach Flower Essences as well. I think she witnessed
the changes in her sister and was intrigued by the fact that she was actually beginning to
enjoy her sister's company! I took her for two sessions with Soo Hwa and she began to take
her own drops. She felt positive changes in her energy almost immediately. Being a teenager
is a tough job and the essences helped her to feel more comfortable with herself.
I am very thankful for being led to the Bach Flower Essences. They have made such a
difference in my life and yet they are affordable, safe, non-evasive, and so subtly
powerful. I highly recommend that anyone interested in living their life to the fullest
and/or healing your emotional life give them a try."

"One year before I was diagnosed with cancer, I experienced certain symptoms that could
not be identified: nausea several times a week, diarrhea, shingles on my upper thigh
every few months, cold sores in my mouth, fingernails that constantly broke and remained
thin and short and finally, an unknown depression that went on for a few months. The
diarrhea, cold sores and the fingernail problem cleared up following all of my treatment.
The nausea continued, as did bouts of depression. A new symptom showed up and started the
day I was diagnosed. I was unable to sleep at night, mostly because of the chemotherapy
and certain injections I had to receive for a low white blood count. I was placed on an
addictive sleep medication for about a year and finally weaned myself off of it. I still
required something to help with sleep so I found an all-natural sleep aid that I took
every night. Some nights it didn't help at all. When I began my Bach Flower Remedies,
I realized that after a month had gone by, I was beginning to sleep every night (and I
have since). I have not had any recurrence of shingles and I have had my emotions under
control. To my greatest delight, I have had no recurring nausea. As an added bonus, though
I have always had nice, soft skin, the chemotherapy dried it out a bit. Another benefit of
the remedies is that my skin is soft again and even silkier than it has ever been. The
most important thing I remember every day is that: recognizing the reason for taking a
particular essence allows us to consciously cultivate the 'opposing' virtue, and finally
it is this learning of the lesson that completes the healing."

Testimonials from Lectures and Courses
"Soo Hwa was an excellent speaker and presenter. She knows her topic, is passionate about

Bach Essences and I am now excited to learn more and to use them."
~ Mary Drillock ~
Lecture, Twin Lakes College
"Very thorough and informative with stories interlaced, making the essences even more
understandable. The speaker was very clear, steady in presentation, sweet with warmth
and a good sense of humor. Obviously loves the Bach Flowers and what they do."
~ Vondo Sunyata ~
Lecture, Twin Lakes College
"I have attended the earlier talk [on Bach Flower Essences and the Family]. I strongly
recommend it. It will help us to understand human behavior, including ourselves and to
respect our children as individuals with their own life/characters. Our responsibility is
therefore to help/guide them to be what they will aspire to be and not impose our values
on them or live our dreams through them.
Soo Hwa is an all loving person who truly wants to help fellow human beings to find
harmony between body and soul as we journey through life. Within the two hours, she
provides the background on Dr Edward Bach's work and shares with us the various human
behavior/personalities and their negative impact on family members, especially our children."

"Absolutely terrific! The course has turned out to be everything I hoped and more!
Bach Flower Therapy meets every requirement I can think of, regarding my concerns
and I have a feeling that the concerns of many can be addressed the same way. To get
the knowledge out there faster, more people are needed to disseminate it. And for that,
more people need to know that courses are available so they too can get the knowledge."

Fantastic! All aspects of the essences were covered and I appreciated being tested on
the knowledge with the group activities. Cannot get that experience from a book. Soo
Hwa was very approachable and down to earth, concentrating on subject at hand and not
drifting into self-appreciation as I have found with other seminar teachers.
