Crystal Healing

Crystal chakra balancing is a holistic approach to wellness, based on the eastern concept of energy centers in the body or chakras and application of inherent energy of crystals to restore these energy fields.   The basic concept of life energy or chakra originates with some of the ancient Hindu and Buddhist thought systems.   It is very similar to the idea of ‘qi’ or life force common to the practice of yoga, acupuncture and Chinese medicine. 

The word ‘chakra’ is taken from the Sanskrit word ‘cakra’ which means wheel or circle.  The idea is there are seven primary chakras in the body.  Each chakra, like a wheel, is spinning.    Lifestyle, emotions, patterns of thinking and past experiences all can affect the integrity of these chakras and can mean blockage of energy within the body.

One technique used to clean, revitalize and restore the health of the chakras and in turn the wellness of the body is using crystals.  Each chakra vibrates at a specific frequency and reacts to the varying wavelengths of light.   Each crystal has its own vibration or energy and is chosen to match each chakra.   Here are examples.   First Chakra, the base or root chakra is located at the base of the spine. The energy focus is physical energy, security, grounding.  The corresponding colors are red and black.  A good choice for a stone is the smokey quartz.   Third Chakra is the Solar Plexus located below the breastbone.   The corresponding colour is yellow and one choice for a corresponding stone might be golden calcite.   

A typical session will last about 1 hour.   Usually the practitioner will begin with a consultation with the client to discuss general health and specific issues the client would like to address and also will explain the crystal balancing method.  Crystals are placed near or on the client during the session.   Often crystal chakra balancing is done as part of a combination with other techniques such as hot stones, Reiki and meditation.  Benefits include but are not limited to the following conditions:  fatigue, headaches, migraines, relief of pain, stress reduction, depression, and anxiety.
