When the going gets tough (such as five planets including Mercury in retrograde), you might feel stressed to a clinical degree. If you’re searching for a holistic solution, you may want to consider giving into hype surrounding crystal light therapy.
One treatment that’s performed by Dr. Von in NYC often treats patients who feel they are living day-to-day like a slow, low-voltage short circuit fuse that could blow up in any moment.
First he will perform acupuncture and then place you in a crystal light therapy bed. This light bed has 7 Vogel cut quartz crystals designed to align with specific chakras on your body.
As these colors are transmitted through the crystal, the chakras are cleansed, energized, and brought into balance. This allows the other aspects of our self, whether it be mental, emotional or physical to be brought into balance.
You lie on the therapy bed fully clothed, facing upwards, you are also covered in white sheet overlay. Clients are asked to wear all white or light colored clothing.
You’re Literally Taking A Crystal Bath In Prismatic Light
By the end of the treatment, your chakras will hopefully be harmonized, allowing natural healing mechanisms to function.
Many patients don’t achieve instant nirvana after the treatment, although some say they feel “light, spacey and extremely relaxed” after a session, but everyone is different. Generally, over a few days, your nervous system will likely have found its groove and you’ll be palpably less stressed.
Many find it a wonderful treatment for de-stressing and to bring about a deep meditative state.
Dr. Von’s says of his approach, “I use multiple methods to help people settle into a deeper parasympathetic nervous system mode,” she says.
“I find that the more that we work with the other senses—smell, feel, sound, etc.—and give the eyes a true rest, the easier it is to downshift into true relaxation.”
