Crystal therapy is based on the premise that crystals can, in a sense, communicate with the energies flowing around the human body. On a microscopic level, a crystal is a network of repeating geometric patterns made up of compressed ions, atoms and molecules. According to crystal therapy, every crystal has its own unique electromagnetic charge (healing vibrations). These healing vibrations interact with the body's energy centers (chakras) to remove negative energies, blockages and restore a healthy flow through the body and mind.
While you are receiving Reiki, specifically chosen crystals are placed on your chakra points during the session.
