With a unique treatment menu using natural therapies, here at Fistral Spa we aim to achieve a complete integration of body, mind and spirit. Our Gaia Crystal Therapy experience is one of a kind so we sit down with Amy Harper, Spa Training and Development Manager, as she talks us through the treatment including the benefits and background into this truly unique therapy.
What is the Gaia Crystal Ritual?
The ultimate goal of crystal healing is to bring the whole body back to a state of pure unconditional love. This treatment is very personalized using crystals to douse and discover which chakras are blocked. It includes a full body, face and scalp massage, crystal placement, aftercare, and a crystal prescription. All Gaia rituals start with a welcome foot ritual and consultation and are followed with a Gaia inspired tea.
Where does the concept come from?
Crystals have been used for over 6,000 years. They are used to absorb, focus, direct and diffuse our energy fields to enable an out of balance body to find its natural energetic rhythm once again. We have designed our own unique treatment using the appropriate crystals, they are placed on and around the body, in this treatment we concentrate on the seven main chakras. To give you a treatment full of intention and integrity we use our own natural wellness brand Gaia Skincare inspired by the ancient Greek goddess otherwise know as mother nature.
What is the therapy supposed to do?
If you know what effect each type of crystal has according to its colour, shape and mineral content, then you can make use of them to initiate a specific effect on the energy balance of chakras, meridians, energy, organs and emotions. Crystal therapy will work on physical ailments from headaches to foot pain as well as emotional wellness to boost confidence, self-expression and ease stress.
Is there anything you do to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment?
