WHAT IS CRYSTAL THERAPY?
Crystal therapy is an ancient, non-invasive and therapeutic energy-based healing technique dating back thousands of years, whereby crystals are specifically chosen to relate to the client’s needs and then precisely placed on and/or around a fully clothed person to induce a state of deep relaxation, with the intent on clearing any energy blockages. The practitioner then helps to direct the crystals energies through your own energy field with the ultimate goal of re-balancing your energy system on all levels (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) thus returning the whole body back to a state of equilibrium, helping you to activate, support and often accelerate your body’s natural healing abilities. Crystal healing is natural and holistic, meaning it acknowledges the link between mind, body and spirit and the need to treat the root causes of dis-ease, not just the symptoms so it can be very effective in assisting the healing process.
HOW DOES CRYSTAL THERAPY WORK?
In the context of crystal healing, when we are healthy and happy, natural life force energy flows through our body freely and carries an energy vibration which promotes healing. When we are stressed or not functioning at our optimum, our life force energy is drained and depleted leading to an imbalance in our energy and vibration which leads to a lack of wellbeing. In crystal healing, the perfect, stable vibration of the crystals are used to resonate with our energy flow bringing it back into balance. It is based on the belief that crystals positively affect imbalances in the human energy field; science has proven the existence of the electromagnetic energy field around every physical body and organism and crystals absorb, focus, direct, detoxify, shift and diffuse energy as they interact with the electromagnetic forces and subtle vibrations within the human energy field, realigning the aura that surrounds you. Healing means bringing the body, mind and spirit back into harmony, restoring the body’s natural rhythm and equilibrium, it treats the causes rather than the symptoms so it has a deeper healing effect and they aid your body to heal itself from within.
WHAT HAPPENS IN A CRYSTAL THERAPY TREATMENT?
After a brief discussion to assess your needs for the current session you will be asked to lie down on the therapy couch and I will ensure you are comfortable with pillows, blankets and knee bolsters if required. All you then need to do is to close your eyes and relax, just allowing yourself to enjoy this special time to yourself whilst I create the space for your body and mind to heal naturally. To start the treatment, I will be using a crystal pendulum to check for any energy imbalances and then, using the information you have given me plus my intuitive assessment, I will select and lay out the appropriate crystals on and around your body in a gentle and non-intrusive way. Whilst the crystals are in place, I may be doing some energy work with crystals in the space around your body or some reiki healing to aid the energy flow. When the treatment has come to an end, I will remove all of the crystals and gently touch your shoulder and say your name to gently bring you back to everyday awareness. I will then offer you a glass of water to assist with the detoxing process and some time to sit and chat if you wish to about your treatment, during which I will offer you some simple aftercare advice to get the most out of your treatment.
HOW WILL CRYSTAL THERAPY BENEFIT ME?
Crystal healing can be used alongside traditional medicine and can benefit anyone with an open mind, which means being open to whatever may occur with no preconceptions or expectations, as being cynical is a barrier to healing. The benefits of crystal healing are varied and occur at different levels:
