Crystal Reiki Treatments
I am fully Qualified in Crystal Chakra & Crystal Reiki this may be defined as the use of crystals in combination with the channelling of reiki (healing energies) to stimulate the self-healing mechanisms of the mind, body and spirit.
As many people are interested in, and positively affected by, both reiki and crystals, some treatments and courses in crystal reiki have become popular.
History of Crystal Reiki
Crystals are believed to have been used for healing for thousands of years by many ancient cultures. Modern reiki healing dates from the re-discovery of reiki by Mikao Usui in Japan in the 1890s.
What does a Crystal Reiki Treatment involve?
As in the case of many therapies, there is no fixed format common to all practitioners.
Finding a Practitioner
Crystal Reiki is a combination therapy that may be offered by Reiki practitioners or Reiki Masters
Prior to the Treatment
The practitioner may start by clarifying the issues to be treated then conducting a brief consultation.
The practitioner may ask about the client's reasons for requesting the treatment and about his / her general health (so that if the client requires - or may require - the practitioner to take any specific actions then this is known).
Similarly, if the practitioner considers that crystal reiki is not appropriate for that person at that time (e.g. because the person has a suspected un-set broken bone) then he or she should also say so and not proceed to the treatment.
The Crystal Reiki Treatment itself
A typical treatment may be scheduled for one hour, but actually take 45-50 minutes, the rest of the time being for the consultation before the treatment and a few minutes for the person to become fully awake and leave the treatment room afterwards.
The actual treatment may take the form of the therapist first ensuring that the client is comfortable and able to relax (perhaps playing gentle music and/or burning incense to facilitate relaxation). The therapist may then lay an arrangement of crystals around and possibly on the client. As the treatment progresses these crystals may be moved and the practitioner may spend some time channelling energy to the client using either 'hands-on' or 'hands-off' techniques. Treatments may also involve energy or chakra balancing.
