A sign that reads "Frequently Asked Questions"

WHAT IS CRYSTAL THERAPY AND CRYSTAL HEALING?

"Crystal therapy" is a treatment where crystals are placed on and around the body. Crystals can also be moved over the body (for example by using a pendulum).

"Crystal healing" is when crystal therapy is combined with another holistic treatment, such as massage, Reiki, acupuncture, etc.

I combine crystals with tuning forks to work with a client's energy on different levels.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

On a molecular level, crystals resonate at different frequencies (depending upon structure/colour/etc), and placing them on or around the body can help to bring your energy into balance. This in turn helps a person to feel more relaxed and positive, allowing the body to heal itself more effectively.

DO I HAVE TO TAKE MY CLOTHES OFF?

No, all treatments are carried out with the client fully clothed, although you may find it more comfortable to remove your shoes.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?

A treatment will usually last around 45 minutes to 1 hour. I ask that clients allow 1.5 to 2 hours so that we may have a discussion before the treatment about any specific issues that would like to be addressed. I also like to allow a few minutes discussion after the treatment in order for the client to fully ground before they carry on with their day.

WHAT EFFECTS WILL IT HAVE ON ME?

Everybody's experience is different. Most people find crystal therapy relaxing but a few people may find that they feel some discomfort. Don't worry about this, if this happens then please tell me immediately so I can make some adjustments to help you feel more relaxed. Your comfort is always paramount.

CAN IT HURT ME IN ANY WAY?

Crystal therapy and healing cannot hurt you, but sometimes a client may feel slight discomfort as their body adjusts to the surrounding energy. Taking deep slow breaths in and sighing out can help with this feeling, but please always let me know if you are uncomfortable so that I may make some adjustments and help this feeling pass.

I HAVE HEARD THAT SOMETIMES IT MAKES PEOPLE FEEL WORSE FOR A WHILE... WHY IS THIS?

After the treatment, as your body is adjusting to the change in energies, you may find that you feel tired or have a headache, or aches and pains in other parts of your body. It is also common to need to go to the loo more frequently, as toxins are eliminated from your system. This is normal and keeping hydrated with plenty of water will help any toxins to be flushed through.

It takes about 3 days before any effects are experienced. Very rarely some people may have diarrhoea or vomiting. Again, this is nothing to worry about, everyone reacts to the crystals in different ways.

DO I HAVE TO REST AFTER THE TREATMENT?

You should be able to carry on as normal. It is important to make sure that you drink plenty of water after a treatment, as keeping hydrated will help your body's energies to adjust.

WHY DON'T I FEEL ANY DIFFERENT AT THE END OF THE TREATMENT?

You may wonder if the crystals have worked for you, as you didn't "feel" anything. This is not unusual, as it can take about 3 days for your body to adjust. It is recommended that you experience at least 3 sessions, this is when most clients will notice the difference.

WHAT PRIVACY AND CONFIDENTIALITY PROCEDURES DO YOU HAVE?

Before your first treatment I will ask you a few health related questions. Whatever is discussed during a treatment will remain confidential. Client's details are filed in secure storage and are not shared with any other parties.
