Crystal Therapy

Gemstones transmit a specific wavelength to the body, which converts these rays into a chemical form that the body can utilize to improve its functioning both on a physical and an emotional level.  
Crystal Healing is a Holistic Therapy which means that the focus is on the individual as a whole, rather than on physical symptoms alone.

The aim of crystal therapy is to restore wholeness, balance and health to emotions, mind and spirit as well as the physical body. Crystal healing works upon the electromagnetic field around our body known as the Aura.

The auric field directly relates to our emotional, mental and spiritual make-up and so, when we are well and healthy, the energies flowing through it are clear and balanced.

Any form of disharmony in our lives, however, can cause blockages or other disturbances in our aura and when not addressed, they may eventually manifest as physical illness.

You will be asked to remove your jewellery and to lie on a therapist’s couch during the treatment, fully clothed (minus shoes). The healer will help you relax and place some crystals on or around
your body. You may experience a slight tingling or nothing at all. Changes do still happen on subtle levels. At times, existing issues may slightly intensify before being released. This occurs usually within three days of a treatment and the healer will always explain to a client what to expect or do should this happen.

How Crystal Therapy works

Crystals have the ability to hold and emit energy vibrations. When a crystal is put in a watch the battery sends a constant charge through the crystal. The crystal absorbs the charge, and then releases it at such a precise rate it is used to make the watch keep perfect time. Crystals affect our electro-magnetic energy fields or subtle bodies which surround and permeate the physical body. These include the etheric, emotional and mental bodies, which are collectively called the Aura.

Crystal Healing can be used to help someone achieve goals or work towards their full potential. In this way, Crystal Healing does not simply ‘fix’ something that is out of balance or in a state of dis-ease. It can be used to create more coherence within the whole person to move forward in their life.

Crystal Healing often involves some form of change in a client’s overall way of being. It may be through a relief of stress and tensions, through revitalisation, relaxation or establishing a greater amount of peace and harmony. Crystal Healing is also helpful in complementing most forms of allopathic medical practice promoting ‘wellness’ and helping to prevent physical illness.

Crystals absorb, focus, direct and diffuse our energy fields to enable a diseased or out of balance body to find it’s natural energetic rhythm once again. Appropriate crystals can be placed on the seven main chakras, which look like different coloured spinning wheels of subtle energy, running up the centre of the torso. These link the subtle energy fields of our Aura with our emotions, glands, organs, physical body parts and subtle and physical circulatory flows. This is why wearing certain crystals such as yellow Citrine may uplift you, Rose quartz may help to ease heartache, and Amethyst may calm a busy mind and help you to sleep.
