Details of treatment
I prepared myself firstly before applying the treatment by wearing very light and airy none restrictive clothing. I felt more comfortable too by having bare feet. I sat myself in a quiet area on a chair with my feet firmly flat on the ground. I closed my eyes and took three deep breaths in through my nose and out through my mouth. I imagined a white glowing vine entering the top of my head and slowly run down through the centre of my body filling my body with the white light. As the vine got to my feet I imagined it leaving through the soles of my feet entering the ground going deep into the earth and wrapping itself around a solid pipe. When I felt myself reach a relaxed, grounded state I put my hands on my heart and invoked the angels to send me divine guidance throughout the treatment I was about to perform. I also asked for my spirit guide to come forward and assist me during the treatment.
I prepared the treatment area to ensure complete relaxation. Beginning with dimming the lighting and placing some small white candles around the room. I prepared my treatment couch with a comfortable blanket for the client to lie on and a white sheet ready to cover my client with from shoulders to feet during the procedure. I played some very relaxing gentle instrumental music quietly so none intrusive in the background. I had my variety of crystals next to the couch in an open wooden box. I had previously cleansed my crystals by using a bowl of salt water and rinsing them under cold water.
When my client sat on the couch we discussed how they were feeling and how they wanted the treatment to be beneficial to their needs. I proceeded to fill out a treatment card as follows;
1. Have you or do you suffer with any health issues past or present? (I asked them to tell me about any issues in depth, so I could fully understand them).
Client’s reply- Client suffers from depression and anxiety and stress, which has a tendency to cause irritable bowel syndrome with him feeling wound up. He has arthritis at the base of his spine called Spondylitis. He also suffers with Osteoarthritis in his hips. He does not take any regular medication for the ailments he has reported. Client also said that he suffers with sleepless nights due to negative thoughts and not being able to wind down after a hard day at work.
2. Have you undergone any surgery in the last nine months?, if so please specify.
Client’s reply- Client has had no surgery recent or past.
3. Is the client pregnant or wanting to become pregnant?
4. Does the client suffer with epilepsy?
Client’s reply- No
5. Do they have any metal implants, a pacemaker or body piercings? (Making the client aware that in some cases before treatment such as massage they may need to consult their doctor, to make sure the treatment is suitable).
Client’s reply- No he does not have any body piercings or a pacemaker fitted, or any other metal implants.
6. Rate their level of stress 1 to 4(1= low stress and 4= high stress)?
The client’s answer- At the time of the treatment Client was feeling quite stressed due to the day at work so I rated him as a level 3.
7. Do they have any special skin problems?
Client’s reply- No Client does not suffer with any skin conditions.
8. What does the client want to achieve from the treatment?
Client’s reply- Client hopes that the treatment will help clear his mind of negative thoughts and stress. He said he would also like to have a good night’s sleep, which he feels may be achieved by cleansing his mind of all the debris of stress, emotional pain and negative thoughts. As he suffers with spondylitis in his lower back, he would like the treatment to help ease the niggling pains and stiffness he gets after being on his feet all day and the same with the pain he suffers with in his hips.
9 Do you have any allergies, or is there any essential oil that may cause problems?
Client’s reply- No he does not suffer with any allergies. And essential oil has been used before when he received a massage treatment.
10 (If using oils) are there any essential oil that you dislike the smell of?
Client’s reply- Client does not like the smell of Eucalyptus oil.
After I asked the questions and Client answered them all, we went through his answers again just to make sure everything he had told me he was happy with and there was nothing important that he had forgotten to mention.
I explained that during the treatment I was going to ask him to lie on the couch and I would place a white sheet over his body and with the guidance of intuition and the angels I would choose suitable crystal’s to help the ailments of his body and place them on the centre of each of the seven chakras. Whilst doing this I would ask him take himself to a comfortable relaxed state. Placing the crystals I would ask guidance from the relevant Arch Angels to assist me. I explained that I would leave the crystals placed on the chakras for 15 minutes allowing them to infuse and send their energies into his body.
This consultation took 30 minutes.
START OF TREATMENT
At the start of the treatment I asked Client to lie on the couch and I took a few moments to concentrate and connect with the Angels when choosing the crystals that I felt drawn to and were relevant to Client’s chakras.
CHAKRAS AND CHOSEN CRYSTALS.
ROOT CHAKRA- Garnet
I felt that this crystal would work well for the Client’s root chakra because it has the property to regenerate the body from tiredness and aching muscles. I thought that it would work well with Client’s Spondylitis condition as well due to its healing treatment for spinal disorders. Garnet is also good for boosting self-confidence, which I feel would help Client because of him suffering from a low self-esteem due to his depression, I feel this would uplift him.
SACREL CHAKRA- Tigers eye
I felt this crystal would benefit Client a lot due to it carrying healing properties for lower back pain and broken/aching bones. Tigers eye can also aid in helping with constipation which I think would help as he does suffer with bowl problems. This crystal also is a good aid for helping with emotional issues.
SOLAR PLEXUS- Amethyst
The reason I chose this crystal is because I felt I had to use it on the third chakra. Reason being it having such good properties for not only relieving physical and emotional pain, it also relieves psychological pain and this is good for aiding restful sleep. I felt that this crystal is a good all round healing stone for Client.
HEART CHAKRA- Rose Quartz
Rose Quartz is good for healing and purifying the heart which opens it up and enables you to love yourself. It creates calmness and enables the body to release unexpressed emotions that are locked away. I feel Client would benefit a lot from having this crystal on his heart chakra as it can help him accept himself and release the emotional debris and cleanse his heart.
THROAT CHAKRA- Aquamarine
This crystal enables you to open up more by speaking your mind and say what you feel rather than keeping it inside and letting it all build up. From listening to Client this would aid him in opening himself up more and releasing the stress that builds up and causes him to feel so fed up.
3RD EYE CHAKRA- Charoite
As this chakra is the window of the mind body and soul, I felt I had to use the crystal Charoite on Client’s 3rd eye chakra. This crystal aids in overcoming insomnia which would be of great benefit to Client’s sleepless nights. Charoite also has the ability to change negative energy that passes through the body into healing energy, re-energizing tired and exhausted bodies.
CROWN CHAKRA- Clear Quartz
I was drawn to using this crystal on Client’s crown chakra because it has a very healing and harmonizing property which enables a deep cleanse of the body. I feel this is what Client needs with his day to day stress levels.
I mixed two drops of each of my chosen essential oils, Jasmine oil, Lavender oil and Patchouli oil with carrier oil. I asked Client to smell the oils to make sure he was happy with the aroma of the blend I chose explaining that the oils I had picked were very complimentary to his treatment. Jasmine is a good component for Amethyst and Clear Quartz crystals. Lavender is a good component for Rose Quartz and Patchouli oil for the crystal Garnet. Once I knew he was happy with the selection I placed it in my oil burner.
When Client was comfortable and relaxed on the couch, I covered him with a white sheet. I then proceeded to place the stones very slowly making sure the choices were correct at each placement. Starting with the base chakra and working my way up to the crown chakra. As I placed the Amethyst crystal on the solar plexus chakra and the Charoite crystal on the 3rd eye chakra I invoked the help of Arch angel Zadkiel as he works well with the properties of these crystals and I felt he would help with Clients guilt, anger and bitterness issues causing his depression. When I placed Rose Quartz on the heart chakra I invoked the help of Arch Angel Chamuel. This is because working with Rose quartz they create a great combination for creating pure love and replacing deep sorrow and negativity with unconditional love. As Client has issues with harbouring guilt and bitterness I feel would Arch Angel Chamuel could help remove the pain and hurt from Client’s heart and open it up to true happiness. When I placed the Tiger eye crystal on Client’s Sacral chakra and the crystal Aquamarine on his Throat chakra I invoked the help for these chakras from Arch angel Michael. Due to the emotional strain Client is under on a day to day basis, Arch angel Michael offers great protection physically and emotionally to aid healing. I feel with his help Client would benefit from a good night’s sleep too as he works so well with Aquamarine and tiger’s eye.
I left the crystals placed on Client for 15 minutes and let them do their magic. When the 15 minutes were up I gently one at a time removed the crystals starting with the root chakra and working my way up to the crown chakra ensuring that Client felt as little movement as possible whilst doing this, and returned the crystals to the box ready to be cleansed. I them proceeded to run my hands along Client’s aura ensuring his balance is restored. I then proceeded to move to the end of the couch and hold Client’s feet and imagine a white light travelling from Client’s head slowly down to his feet and it travelling down through my feet to ensure he was safely grounded. I waited for a few minutes to enable Client to come back into the room in his own time with no sudden rush or movement.
Treatment time- 15 minutes
AFTER THE TREATMENT
When Client had come round and was comfortable I suggested he sit up slowly as he may feel a little light headed. I offered Client I cup of tea and sat with him. I asked him how he felt after the treatment. He said he felt very relaxed and a little overwhelmed with emotion, but in a good way like a weight had been lifted from his shoulders. I asked if he felt anything unusual or specific during the treatment. He said the main thing he could feel was warmth around the heart chakra as if someone had their hands on his chest, he said it was very soothing, very healing and made him feel relaxed and light. Client proceeded to tell me that his body didn’t feel achy at all and he felt quite tired, but thought he could sleep for hours once he got to bed. He said the whole experience was very relaxing and he thoroughly enjoyed the treatment.
Relaxation after treatment 15 minutes
AFTER CARE ADVISED
I explained to Client about the possible energy shift due to the intensity of placing the stones. Also that there may be a detoxification process and the changes that may occur will be very gentle and positive. I explained that treatments like this can be very beneficial to the client over a long period of time due to the balancing of the chakras.
I asked Client a few days later after the treatment how he was feeling. He said he has slept brilliantly since the treatment which amazed him. He also said he felt great very positive in himself and the aches and pains aren't as often as normal.
This case study is an excellent example from one of our students whom has fully understood her course material and ensured that the clients treatment card was completed and took the time to gain feedback from her client.
