How new-age are you?

by posted in WELLNESS

All too often, high-speed modern lives lead to fatigue. In a bid to rid ourselves from blocked energies and regain our well-being, we are turning to ancient practices such as Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine.

Less conventional therapies, such as crystal healing, are gaining in popularity too. Ancient Egyptians once believed that gems had the power to heal. They even collected them throughout their lifetime to ensure a safe journey to the next realm of existence.

Why not try some crystal healing when holidaying at Six Senses resorts with our Visiting Practitioner Jill Banwell? In a Crystal & Color Healing session, Jill places specific gemstones on the seven major energetic centers of your body, known as the chakras. As chakras themselves relate to colors on the visible light spectrum, the most suitable crystals are matched to these colors.

Pink stones, such as Rose Quartz and beautifully patterned Rhodocrosite, are most effective for harmonizing the loving, compassionate and forgiving qualities of the heart chakra. Emerald, Peridot and other green colored crystals are also good for the heart.

Yellow stones, such as Citrine and Amber, correspond with the solar plexus chakra, responsible for our vitality and motivation. The sacral chakra, our emotional and creative center, reacts well to stones with orange coloration, such as Carnelian and Orange Calcite. The base chakra, associated with being grounded in the body, responds to Red Garnet or Smoky Quartz.

At the throat chakra, for communication and self-expression, the energies of light blue stones are effective, such as delicately patterned Blue Lace Agate or sea green Aquamarine. The third eye chakra at the brow is for clarity of vision and perception. Here, dark blue stones such as gold-flecked Lapis Lazuli or Sodalite work well. Where we connect with our higher self and spiritual guidance, at the crown chakra on the top of the head, purple, clear or white stones are helpful, such as Amethyst or Clear Quartz.

Crystal & Color Healing is a relaxing and revitalizing natural treatment for your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
