Gemstone Healing Services with Maria

Blessings of peace and warmth to you all! I hope you and your loved ones have fared well during the storm, and have been safe, healthy, and warm. As I was cozy inside my home during the storm, I spent a lot of time in meditation; I sent out a blessing of love, peace, healing, and safety to everyone affected by the storm. During this time in meditation, I received some creative inspiration for new treatment services I could offer to the community that would bring in much-needed healing light, warmth, serenity, and sparkling energy.

Since I was a child, I have always collected and worked with gemstones and crystals. I have studied extensively with gemstone/crystal healers from around the world, as well as immersed myself in rigorous study in the art and science of gemstone and crystal healing techniques. During my Reiki trainings, I would receive insight during sessions on what gemstones could be used and placed along the Chakra System; I am constantly called to use gemstones during Reiki sessions, and I use them daily at home when I give myself Reiki. My meditations over the stormy weekend gave me a very clear message that it was time for me to merge the sparkling energetic power of gemstones with relaxing Reiki techniques, and create 2 beautifully unique and economical healing services for the community.

Gemstone and crystal healing techniques have been used for centuries to help the whole body heal and renew energy reserves, balance and unblock stagnant energy in the Chakra System, ease physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual distress & pain, and raise one’s spiritual vibration. As the gemstones are placed along the body, they gently send their healing light into your being. During the session, crystals are held in my hands as they channel Reiki energy to help activate the healing energy to penetrate even further, allowing you to enter into an even deeper state of pure blissful relaxation.

I look forward to introducing you to the these new treatment sessions, and I am grateful to have the opportunity to share with you the beauty and healing power gemstones and Reiki have to offer. Sending you all blessings of love, light, and peace for your month ahead!

Bergamot and Peaceful Moon Massage Oil Recipe

Bergamot is a small citrus fruit originating from Italy. Its uplifting scent can help lift one’s spirit and put anyone at ease.

bergamot

Scent: citrusy, fresh, rejuvenating

Therapeutic properties: bergamot makes a great air freshener, as it has antiseptic and anti-viral properties that may protect against airborne bacteria.

Emotional healing properties: calming and anti-depressant. It can help ease and release the symptoms of depression, improve moods, ease anxiety, and help one heal through grief. The scent can also help stimulate and regulate one’s appetite.

Skin healing properties: bergamot is a lovely essential oil to use in a facial oil blend to help heal acne. It is also blends well with other calming essential oils to make a massage oil that is helpful in calming down any stress-related skin condition.

**Please note: citrus essential oils cause photosensitivity in skin. If you are going to use citrus essential oils in a facial or massage oil, wait at least 6 hours after using it before going out in the sun (citrus containing facial oils or massage oils are best used at night). Never use essential oils undiluted (or neat) on your skin.
