How long does a Crystal Therapy session take?
When scheduling a crystal therapy session you will be asked to allow 30 minutes. Sometimes you may need 45-60 minutes, if there is a fair amount of work to be done. You will be asked to stay up to 15 minutes following the session to "ground" yourself before driving or taking part in your everyday activities. You are not charged for this "recovery" time and tea, water, light snacks are provided to you to help you get grounded once again following your session. Not everyone needs this time - it depends on how sensitive you are to the changes in energy flows within your body. It's just best to plan on the time in case you feel the need to "sit for a bit."
Do I ever lose consciousness during a Crystal Therapy session ?
No. During a session you are fully conscious and remain fully conscious - but often the client becomes very relaxed initially during the session. As your body's energy becomes more in balance often clients will feel energized or revitalized.
Do I need to change into any special clothing or disrobe for the session?
No. You stay in whatever you wear to the session - it is suggested that you wear something very comfortable to you.
What can I expect to happen during my session?
A practitioner will discuss with you the reason for your session and then place the necessary crystals (stones) on that body (or chakra) area to best aid in alleviating symptoms. These crystals are not heavy or cumbersome and assist with promoting your wellness. There will be low lighting, sometimes the light colors may change, some soft music will be playing, and possibly some aromatherapy (incense or oil), if agreed upon. There is minimal physical contact - just placement and removal of crystals. There is no massage or prolonged physical contact.
Can I bring someone with me?
You may bring an adult with you, if desired, but whether they will accompany you into the session is determined on a case-by-case basis. Generally, the session includes the client and practitioner. Children are not allowed in the session nor are they to be left waiting for you as they can become a distraction to the client.
Is there an age requirement?
You must be 18 years of age in order to participate in a Crystal Therapy session. We do occassionally have children as clients and a parent/legal guardian is present with them during their entire session. Any sessions involving children are on a case-by-case basis. We ask that you not bring siblings to avoid distractions and to allow our undivided attention to the child participating in the session.
Is the session confidential?
Absolutely. That is why having someone else in the session room other than practitioner is on a case-by-case basis. We place our highest priority on confidentiality for all of our clients participating in any of our offered therapies.
How much does a Crystal Therapy session cost and is it covered by insurance?
One crystal therapy session is $60.00 for a 30-minute session. Each additional 15 minutes is at a $25 rate. At the beginning of a regimen for a chronic issue the session can last 45-60 minutes. A booking fee of $40.00 is due at time of scheduling via PayPal or other pre-approved method. Remainder of payment is due at time of session. If you must cancel your appointment, we request a minimum of 24 hours notice. Last minute cancellations and no-shows will forfeit booking fee. At this time, Crystal Therapy is not covered under medical insurance plans. We do offer a variety of therapy packages at varied prices and payment plans. See our page for more information.
6,000 years to the time of the ancient Sumerians of Mesopotamia. Ancient Egyptians are also were among the first people to have adorned themselves with crystals — including lapis lazuli, amber, quartz and turquoise — to ward off illness and negative energy and to promote wellness.
The concept behind modern crystal therapy is also based on traditional concepts borrowed from Asian cultures, most notably the Chinese concept of life-energy (chi, ki or qi) and the Hindu or Buddhist beliefs of chakras, which are centers along meridian lines of this life-energy, which connect the physical and subtle energies within the body.
In a crystal therapy session, stones possessing various properties are placed the body aligned with these chakra points and subtle energy meridians. The crystals used, and their positioning, are chosen to facilitate reduction of symptoms being experienced by the client. Crystal therapy can also be enhanced by the use of crystals and stones worn on the body or placed under pillows to ward off sickness, shed negative energy or absorb positive energy.
Crystal therapy is not a replacement for regular Western medical diagnosis and treatment, and no one should dismiss their regular medical treatment for any alternative holistic therapy.

FAQ's Regarding Crystal Therapy & Bodywork
CRYSTAL THERAPY & BODYWORK
Crystal therapy is an alternative holistic modality in which crystals and other stones are used to facilitate healing and promote wellness. Crystals facilitate wellness by allowing positive, healing energy to flow into the body as negative energy flows out. Crystals, although inanimate, have a resonance or frequency that is emitted and can contain their own energy within. These are the properties that are "tapped into" to facilitate and promote healing and wellness.
Crystals being used for wellness dates back to ancient times-dating back at least
