What is Crystal Therapy?Crystal therapy is a deeply relaxing holistic treatment in which crystals are selected and precisely placed on or around the client's body in order to restore health and and harmony on all levels.
Crystals generate, store and radiate energy and can be used for many purposes - for example, to treat physical ailments, to help release emotional wounds, to reduce stress and to calm a busy mind. A crystal therapy treatment is unique for each individual but the aim is to help regain a sense of balance and wellbeing.
There are thousands of different types of crystals, each with their own unique properties to treat specific physical or emotional conditions, so it is impossible to list all the possible positive effects of crystal therapy! However, some of the more general benefits of a crystal therapy treatment can include:

What to expect from a Crystal Therapy treatment?Crystal Therapy Sunshine Holistics Hertford: On your first visit, a free consultation will be given before the treatment. This is an entirely confidential discussion which will help to establish the reason for your visit as well as give you an opportunity to ask questions. You will be asked to complete a short medical questionnaire and sign a consent form.
You remain fully clothed throughout the 1 hour treatment, and lie on a massage couch in the tranquil surroundings of my home-based treatment room. Soft music will be played to aid relaxation and you will be covered with a blanket.
To begin the treatment, I use a master crystal to scan above and around your body to detect any imbalances in your auric field and to clear these. The aura is the energy field which surrounds you and the stronger and healthier it is, the more healthy and balanced you will be. Next, specific crystals are selected and placed on the 7 main energy centres of the body known as ‘chakras’. Additional crystals may be placed in grids around particular chakras either to release any trapped negativity or to give them an extra boost. When your chakras are working in harmony, you too will function at your optimum level and enjoy a sense of balance in body, mind and spirit. If any extra crystals are needed in addition to the chakra crystals, I will position these on or around the body before completing the treatment with a final chakra balancing technique.
During the crystal therapy treatment clients often report a sense of calm and relaxation. People experience the energy of crystals in different ways, so do not be surprised if you feel a change in temperature (either hot or cold) or a tingling sensation. You may experience a gentle release of emotions or a reduction in aches and pains. Everybody is different and there is no right or wrong way to feel. Following a treatment, some people feel re-energized whilst others feel calm and tranquil – again, everybody is unique and the effects of crystal therapy may vary each time you have a treatment according to your needs at the time.
How does Crystal Therapy work?Crystals have been used for thousands of years throughout the world for their holistic healing properties although modern science is only just beginning to understand more about the potential of these solid forms of minerals. The energy inherent in crystals is already used for things such as keeping time by using quartz crystals in watches and in creating electrical components in smartphones and computers.
Like everything in the universe, crystals vibrate. The exact structure of molecules in crystals is a very tight and specific pattern called a ‘lattice’ which causes them to emit tiny vibrations which are recognised by our bodies neurological system. The vibrations emitted by crystals have the ability to absorb and clear negative energy from our bodies and energy field (aura) as well as being able to detect energetic imbalances too. Crystal therapy is an effective way of removing energy blockages, revitalising and rebalancing us into a state of harmony and wellbeing.
