How does it work?
Crystals look outwardly serene but they are actually a molecular mass vibrating individually at a certain frequency, this is what gives a crystal its energy. Healing can be defined as bringing the body, emotions, mind and spirit back into harmony. Crystals do not imply a cure, they are a gentle energy that creates balance on all levels which stimulate or calm the body to help rebalance and activate support for self-healing.
In present times the use of crystals, mainly quartz, in modern technology is apparent. Crystals have the ability to receive, hold and transmit a regular vibration and when placed under mechanical stress the quartz crystal can produce electricity called piezolectical, hence the every day wristwatch. The use of quartz can also be found in radios, microprocessors, microphones, timers, clocks and buzzers.
What is chakra?
The term Chakra originates from the Sanskrit word “wheel”. Every one of us house in our physical body seven main chakras, each having their own individual colour. These chakras are spinning vortexes of subtle energy located near the spine where particular internal organs and systems are focused. Crystals are placed on some or all of the seven main chakras to remove any blockages allowing the realignment of the self into balance.
What is Crystal Therapy?
Crystal therapy is a complementary therapy that works on the physical, mental and spiritual levels. By interacting with these energy fields we can assist the body to heal, calm, stimulate or adjust energies to bring the mind, body and spirit back into balance.
The current and rising interest in crystals is not a new discovery but rather a reawakening, a discovery of the Earth and her energies. What we are learning now was practiced by our ancestors, crystals have been used throughout history all over the world for their therapeutic and healing properties. Egyptian tombs and temples have been discovered revealing crystals. The Aztec culture of Mexico considered turquoise sacred to the gods, as did the Native American Indians. Kings and queens have been adorned with crystals as a display of wealth and as an aid for the wearer to instil power and protection.
How do crystals work with the body?
Well, firstly we are more than physical beings. We are beings of energy that constantly vibrate and are influenced by other vibrations. Crystals can be placed around the body to support the energy fields surrounding our physical body known as the aura or subtle bodies. The subtle bodies flow and interact in harmony but when this is disrupted the knock on effects may lead to stress and dis-ease. Imagine these subtle bodies like layers of glass letting light into a room, as dust and dirt accumulate on one layer it will cast a shadow on to the others and the room itself. Using crystals to balance these levels can be a very effective tool to disperse these energy disruptions as the subtle bodies resonate with the unique vibration of each crystal. Crystals can be placed on the chakras to bring them individually or collectively back into balance.
What to expect during a crystal session.
Your first visit involves a consultation (approx 15 minutes) followed by a treatment (approx 60 minutes). Subsequent visits include a summary of how you felt after your last visit and how you are feeling now (approx. 60 minutes). You remain fully clothed and most people find the therapy a deeply relaxing and calming experience, you may even fall asleep! Crystals will help support your energy over a period of time, it’s not like taking a pill, the vibration needs to integrate into your energies in order for the body to heal itself.
After three sessions most people will feel different or better and will notice an improvement in their overall well-being. Crystal therapy is suitable for anyone, any age. However, children under the age of 16 require parental consent. My aim is to provide a calming influence on the ripples that upset and disturb our lives.
