Crystals have been valued for thousands of years for their protective,
healing and restorative properties. The ancient Greeks used them in
Amulets and good luck charms and the Egyptians ground them up to
make eye make-up and astringents for the skin.
Crystal energy is partly derived from the mineral elements the Crystal
was exposed to and took on as it grew. The human body is made up
of these same elements. This means if we experience an in-balance
or deficiency in a certain area we can use a Crystal, containing that
element, to bring about re-balance and positive change.
In a rapidly changing world it’s becoming increasingly important to find effective ways to balance our hectic lifestyles with the need for improved health, renewed vitality and emotional stability. A Crystal Therapist can help you do this by placing well-chosen crystals on and around the body to influence positive change. For instance Malachite, which contains the element copper, can be used to reduce inflammation and joint pain when worn next to the skin.
As well as targeting specific physical concerns a Crystal Therapy session can be used as a great way to relax, de-stress and balance both the mind and spirit.
About your Therapist - Sally Peachey
Sally has trained under the traditional Japanese system of Reiki devised by
Mikai Usui and passed down directly by Master to Master to Sally. She had been
drawn to Reiki whilst trying to heal her son of a sudden immune reaction and was
amazed by the benefits the treatment brought him.
Sally is a qualified Reiki Master and loves to help others with the deep relaxation
and rebalancing effects of Reiki. Reiki is suitable for all ages and ailments, whether
you are suffering from stress, anxiety, sleep problems, recovering from injuries and operations or
undergoing medical treatments. It can clear emotional and energetic blocks and relieve
depression, grief and the effects of traumatic and past life events. A Reiki treatment can
also just be a thoroughly relaxing chance to unwind!
She has also trained on an ITEC Holistic Massage Course, studying Anatomy and Physiology and Holistic Massage, passing with Distinction. Where required she is able to incorporate her Reiki Skills into Massage treatments to the benefit of her clients.
More recently she has qualified in FHT Indian Head Massage and Deep Tissue Massage, offering massage treatments that are wonderfully relaxing whilst working on the tensions and tightness for beneficial results.
She is delighted to be associated with Holly Blue Holistics, a charity set up to provide holistic therapies to Gloucestershire residents who would normally not have access to treatments.
