A good place to start in understanding crystal healing is with this blog on Chakras in the human body.
Crystal healing works in conjunction with the Chakras in your body. Crystals themselves emit vibrations that can help you with opening and clearing blocked chakras. Working with crystals in the colours that match the Chakra colour will help you achieve a more peaceful mind and a revitalized outlook. They may even uplift your physical state of being.
The history of Crystal healing can be traced back as far as ancient Sumerians. Crystals were used for magic or divination by Egyptians, the ancient Greeks, in historical East India, and Indigenous peoples of North America. So it can be said that you are in good company when you are getting this treatment!
Normally a session would look like a recipient laying on a massage table on their front or back, and the practitioner would explain as they lay various stones about the body of the recipient. The stones may be on the skin, or through clothing. They may encourage the recipient to hold stones in each hand, and crystals may also be placed alongside the body, either on the table or at specific points in the room.
A Crystal healing sessions is generally shorter than a Reiki sessions, as there are different vibrations at work in each instance. A 30 minute Crystal healing session can help brighten your day and leave you feeling exuberant and ready to face all of life’s challenges. A first session might even be a little disorienting, as generally we aren’t used to having our Chakra’s functioning so well!
Another great feature of Crystal healing is the ability to ground the recipient. If things seem like they’re spinning out of control, it is a good time to check in with your body and make sure you are connected. Your root chakra may be bugging for some attention, fighting to keep you rooted in the Earth and not flitting about in the Astral realm.
It is important to note: Crystal healing is absolutely NOT a substitute for proven treatments for life-threatening conditions. Generally speaking, Crystal healing is offered in the realm of massage therapy, hot stone treatment, and fire cupping. There is no empirical evidence that what one experiences during a Crystal healing session is real. That is for the recipient to decide on their own. Science suggests it is the placebo effect at work when a Crystal healing sessions produces unexplicable results. However, there are hundreds of thousands of people across all walks of life and culture who would vehemently disagree.
Whether you’re already a believer and just looking for a reputable practitioner, or you’re a complete disbeliever but a little bit curious, send me a note and let’s see where we can find common ground.
