Generally crystals can be used during other treatments as an additional source of vibrational energy (e.g. reiki, reflexology, Indian Head massage), even if only for grounding during the treatment.
A crystal therapy session, however, involves the recipient lying fully-clothed on a couch, although it can be done with the recipient sitting in a chair or lying on the floor. The therapist will possibly use a crystal pendulum to dowse what layouts/crystals are required for the recipient and will place them accordingly on/around the recipient's body.
Whatever layout(s)/techniques the therapist uses, one of the main aims of the session is to allow the recipient to feel relaxed and calm.
Potential benefits of a crystal therapy treatment include:
- a deep sense of relaxation, thereby reducing stress levels
- enhancement of other complementary therapies and treatments e.g. reiki, massage
- quick & effective balancing of the energy system
- an effective aid to spiritual & personal development
