The Benefits of Chakra Crystal Healing for Spa Clients
By Lori Vargas, founder of 360 Wellness Education
Chakra Crystal Healing Stone Therapy is a deeply meditative experience to aid in bringing the body’s seven main Chakras into alignment which may leave clients feeling calm and in a state of harmony, resulting in an increased feeling of well-being. Chakra Balancing is a form of energy healing that focuses on channeling energy into the seven chakras focusing on the energetic body. The body is not only made up of the physical body but there is energy that extends beyond our physical well-being.
Chakra Crystal Healing Stone Therapy is considered an alternative medicine technique. It uses semi-precious stones and crystals that may include Red Jasper, Citrine, Tiger Eye, Aventurine, Turquoise, Quartz Crystal, and Amethyst. The treatment session involves placing various crystals and minerals on or around a fully clothed or covered client in order to:
• induce deep relaxation.
• release stress and pain.
• re-balance energy within the body.
Crystal healing focuses on Chakra points on the body and works to remove any blockage in the chakra point, therefore enabling energy to flow freely. It is suggested that crystals can have healing powers. Although there is no scientific basis for this claim, most clients claim they experience enhanced relaxation and a feeling of well-being.
There are 7 main energy centers or chakras that run along the spine:
1. Root Chakra – at the base of the spine or tailbone.
Physical imbalances may manifest as problems in the legs, rectum, tailbone, immune system, male reproductive parts, and prostate gland.
Emotional imbalances may manifest as feelings affecting basic survival needs; money, shelter, food, and the ability to provide life’s necessities.
2. Sacral Chakra– two inches below the navel.
Physical imbalances may manifest as sexual and reproductive issues, urinary problems, kidney infections, and hip, pelvic, and lower back pain.
Emotional imbalances may manifest as fear of commitment to relationships, expressing emotions, fears of impotence, betrayal, and addictions.
3. Solar Plexus Chakra – three inches above the navel.
Physical imbalances may manifest as digestive problems, liver dysfunction, chronic fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, stomach ulcers, and colon issues.
Emotional imbalances may manifest as issues of personal power and self-esteem.
4. Heart Chakra – at the heart.
Physical imbalances may manifest as asthma, heart disease, lung disease, issues with breasts, lymphatic system, and upper back and shoulder problems.
Emotional imbalances may manifest as jealousy, abandonment, anger, bitterness, and fear of loneliness.
5. Throat Chakra – at the throat.
Physical imbalances may manifest as thyroid issues, sore throats, laryngitis, ear infections, neck, and shoulder pain.
Emotional imbalances may manifest as fear of communication, willpower, and being out of control.
6. Third Eye Chakra – in the middle of the eyebrows.
Physical imbalances may manifest as headaches, blurred vision, sinus issues, seizures, hearing loss, and hormonal imbalance.
Emotional imbalances may manifest as moodiness, volatility, and self-reflection.
7. Crown Chakra – top of the head.
Physical imbalances may manifest as depression, inability to learn, and sensitivity to light, sound, and the environment.
Emotional imbalances may manifest as confusion, prejudice, and self-doubt.
These chakras bring in and emit energy that flows in our day-to-day lives. Each chakra relates to a different part of our life and being. In times of struggle or change, the energy can stop flowing freely and cause the Chakra(s) to become blocked or imbalanced. These blockages can manifest in many ways. For example, the throat chakra is strongly linked to communication, if you are in a relationship where you are not able to say how you truly feel you may lose your voice physically.
The aim is to release any chakra blockages and promote a free flow of energy to restore balance and a sense of well-being. By balancing Chakras, you may be able to:
• Remain calm in everyday life
• See challenges for what they are, and not be as affected by them
• Overcome past life experiences which could have left their mark on you
• Help others without their problems affecting you
• Develop confidence, energy, freedom, and happiness to feel good about yourself and life every day
The client’s experience during a chakra treatment will vary with some experiencing an emotional release during or after the treatment. The aim is to leave you feeling completely relaxed and refreshed with a great sense of calm and overall well-being. This is a perfect treatment for someone going through anything significant in their life or for anyone wanting to maintain balance, well-being, and energetic health. Integrating treatments with singing bowls uses sound and vibration to aid in clearing the channels.
