Having worked as a complementary therapist for 17 years, I have stumbled across the positive use of crystals many times in my training, but it has only been in the last 3 years that they really caught my eye and captured my imagination. I then embarked on a 2 year course studying them. Rather than leave my chosen crystal on my bed side table or window sill, collecting dust, or in a pocket only to pop out and be lost on the floor, I decided to start wire wrapping them into bespoke pieces of jewellery, which I couldn’t lose. I worked more closely with them by wearing them and choosing a different one each day according to how I felt.
Through attending Mind, Body and Spirit Festivals and Craft Fairs, I’ve noticed men and women are drawn to crystals for various reasons. It may just be their beauty, but many are also fascinated by their perceived properties. You often find you are attracted particularly to one or two, which hold a meaning relevant to yourself, as current issues and events occur in your life. The crystal becomes a symbol for you of attributes you may want to draw into your life, or a direction you want to take. Working and wearing the crystal keeps you aligned and focused on this path. It is a lovely concept to work with.
…working with crystals usually takes place within the other treatments, rarely as a stand alone session. It’s something we seem to get drawn in to, finding ourselves attracted to a certain crystal, reading about it’s meaning, something seems to fit. They are the icing on the cake, can be used in so many different ways, and are scattered around my treatment room, waiting for you to notice them.
Crystal Reflexology, Massage, Meditation, Reiki and Jewellery…
Reflexology- I can use wands ( pointed crystals) to work on certain points on the feet, we may choose a certain type of wand, based on the chakra it’s aligned with or other qualities we may perceive it has. Clear quartz is often one I use for its cleansing and clearing properties.. This could be used on hands as well as feet. Some crystals may be placed on chakras during the session, placed around you or held. The nature of the reflexology sessions are that of deep relaxation, we are aiming for a change in consciousness. To facilitate this I often start with awareness of the breath, a visualisation/meditation and our chosen crystals in there too. The desired outcome is that of a rebalancing of mind, body and spirit, the more we do it the more it becomes second nature.
Massage- I can place your chosen stones around you or on you as I massage or use them as palm stones, directly on your body, again we are aiming for deep relaxation, so the session may start with a visualisation/meditation and breath work.
Reiki- also combines nicely with your choice of crystals.
