Each of our students must write a minimum 1000 word case study as part of their exam. Here is a Crystal Therapy Case study that has been submitted by one of our students.
I used a massage table with an organic cotton, unbleached sheet, a head pillow, a leg rest, and a dark red blanket. The head of the table pointed north; the foot, south. In the north part of the room (the hearth of my living room), I lit a candle and placed a garnet for Earth. In the east, for Wind, a moss agate. In the south, for Fire, a rutilated quartz. In the west, for Water, a rose quartz. For the energizing/healing section of the treatment, I played “Healing Waters” by Dean Evenson.
I gave the client a client form to fill out. I explained that crystal therapy is not a substitute for orthodox medicine given by an accredited physician.
I set the intention that the energy offered to the client be for his highest good.
Clearing: I instructed the client (my husband) to take deep breaths in through the nose to the slow count of four, and out-breaths through the mouth also to the count of four. Meanwhile, I placed six quartz crystals (singing quartz crystals) around him to form a six pointed star. All crystals pointed out. The first pointed from the crown chakra, and two pointed away from each knee. Two more crystals pointed away from each elbow, with another crystal between his feet, pointed away from the body. I used a large quartz crystal to energize and connect all six crystals. I circled clockwise around the client seven times, linking each crystal. When I was done, I sat and watched the client for a few minutes.
It was my sense that the client was ungrounded with an unstable energy field. When the energy felt clear, I removed the clear quartz crystals.
During this part of the treatment, the client fell into a state of relaxation so deep it looked like he was sleeping.
Balancing: I first performed Healing Touch to balance the chakras. (I have taken Healing Touch Level 3 and have done dozens of sessions as a volunteer and student..) Healing Touch is a type of energy healing that can be done hands-on or hands-off. It is quite similar to Reiki. (I’m currently studying Reiki through a Canadian school). I spent as much time as felt needed at each chakra, spending the most time with the solar plexus, sacral, and root chakras. I grounded the energy through the client’s feet. I also sent energy to the client’s hands, shoulders, and knees.
During this part of the treatment, the client’s color improved.
Energizing: On the pillow above the client’s head, I placed an amethyst crystal pointed toward the client’s crown chakra. On his third eye, I placed a small lapis lazuli, which happens to be his birthstone.. For the throat chakra, I used a larimar crystal, which I rotated over the chakra until the energy felt complete. For the heart chakra, I placed a piece of malachite. For the solar plexus, citrine. For the sacral, orange calcite, and for the root chakra, a rough ruby, which I placed between the feet.
Because the ciient wanted to feel less anxious, I gave him a larimar crystal to hold in his right hand and an aquamarine in his left hand.
Here are my reasons for using the above crystals:
Source: The Crystal Bible, by Judy Hall
Amethyst: relieves physical, emotional, and psychological pain or stress, alleviates migraines (client has frequent migraines); transmutes negative energy.
Lapis Lazuli: The client’s birthstone, lapis lazuli helps migraines, benefits the respiratory and nervous systems, alleviates insomnia and vertigo, and lowers blood pressure.
Larimar: Larimar works simultaneously as a clearing stone, removing attached entities and blockages as well as stone that promotes self-healing. It is a gorgeous calming aqua blue, a favorite color of the client.
Aquamarine: A calming stone that gives courage and reduces stress.
Malachite: A stone of transformation that draws out deep feelings and psychosomatic causes and breaks unwanted ties. It enhances the immune system and stimulates the liver to release toxins.
Citrine: An energizing stone that fortifies the nerves.
Orange Calcite: A highly energizing and cleansing stone that balances the emotions, removes fear, and overcomes depression.
Ruby: Ruby is said to be extremely beneficial for the heart and circulatory system, stimulating the adrenals, kidneys, reproductive organs, and spleen. It relates to the root chakra.
All the stones stayed where I’d put them. The client liked holding onto the aquamarine and larimar stones.
Grounding, Closing Down, and Protecting:
I removed the stones from the chakras and the client’s hands. Holding my hands a few inches above the client’s body, I smoothed down the etheric body, emotional, and mental bodies and sent the intention to close the client’s chakras. I finished by pulling excess energy from the client’s calves and feet and into the ground.
I set the intention that the energy be grounded and that the client’s chakras be closed (leaving the root chakra “one petal” open), and that the client be protected by white light from all unwanted energies.
When the client was ready, he sat up and I offered him water.
I gave the client a bowl of touchstones, from which he selected an orange and cream coloured moss agate. I suggested that the client use this agate as a touchstone for when he felt anxious. I instructed him on how to ground his energy through his feet and surround himself with a cocoon of white light.
The client reported feeling much more relaxed. We’ll continue with further sessions.
