The Reiki-Crystal Practitioner is a channel for universal energy(called Ki in Japanese). During the session, the Practitioner may place a layout of crystals around and on the body, especially the chakras, or if using Reiki alone, will lightly lay her hands on, or above, areas of the recipient's body associated with the Chakras and major organs of the body, channeling this energy into the recipient. The recipient's natural body energy is enhanced, and aids in self-healing of the emotions, the spirit, the body, and the mind. The recipient remains fully clothed, and usually will also be covered by a blanket, as body temperature may drop during the session. The recipient generally enters a state of profound relaxation, similar to a meditative state, and may even fall asleep.
Reiki and crystal layouts will benefit the receiver in the same way, whether or not she or he believes in the process, and whether or not she or he is awake or asleep.
Reiki and crystals work well as complementary healing with traditional western medicine, to help restore balance to the body, to lessen or relieve pain, and to encourage the body’s own energy in the healing process.
