Treatments involve deep relaxation and the balancing of the body’s own energies. It is advisable to wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing. Initially, a full history of the client is taken and work is done to establish where imbalances or blockagess occur. This may be done with a hand-held crystal or with a pendulum. Appropriate crystals are chosen and placed on the body at chakra points and along the meridians or pathways down which the energies flow. Crystals may also be placed over specific areas of pain with excellent effect.
Although it is possible to obtain benefits immediately, it is usually recommended that a course of at least three treatments be followed. This is so that the healing crisis, which sometimes results, can be managed by the practitioner.
