Connecting with Your Energy Stones and Crystals
Crystals and Stones experience their consciousness through the energies that flow through them. This means the energies of the natural forces and other minerals around the crystals connect you, your beautiful intentions and your interactions with your crystals.
When you connect with your crystal or energy stones you are initiating this crystal to the virtuous action of co-creating with you. Always clean and de-program your crystal before beginning your co-creation with your crystal.
The Importance of Cleaning your Crystal or Gemstone:
There are many ways to energetically clean your crystal or gemstone. Crystals and or gemstones are structured to absorb energy, utilize energy, magnify energy, transmit and receive energy. The general operating system of a crystal is to collect and absorb from its environment and this is why it is important to clean them. The following information is how I clean my crystals, however, there are other methods to cleaning crystals and gemstones.
Depending upon the use of your crystal or gemstone it is advisable to clean them weekly or monthly or daily.
Cleaning Instructions for Crystals or Gem Stones:
- Use one part salt (regular salt is fine), and two parts water. The water is best at room temperature or tap water.
- Submerge the entire crystal in the solution. Allow for the crystal or gemstone to remain in the solution for at least 15 minutes – 1 hour. If the crystal or gemstone is too large, use a spray bottle and mist the crystal or gemstone with the solution. As you are spraying the solution on the crystal or gemstone it makes for a more powerful cleansing if you chant while spraying.
- After a thorough saturation, use clear water to rinse the crystal or gemstone.
- Use a towel to dry the crystal.
- The recommended chant is “I ask that any previous program on this crystal to be removed” and “ may this crystal be empowered with peace, peace and perfect peace”
You can also use Witch Hazel as a replacement for the salt component for the cleaning solution. These two solutions are the deepest and simplest way to clean and clear your crystals or gemstones.

Sound Healing Technique’s for the Feet
A Tuning Fork Technique for the Feet
Sound is an intricate part of our world. While you probably already provide soothing music or background sounds during your massage sessions, incorporating sound therapy, such as tuning fork therapy, into your sessions can add a serene, spa-like element to a massage and leave your clients feeling even more relaxed and rejuvenated.
My first experience with sound:
I have been fascinated with sound since I was a little girl. I recall my first experience regarding sound, during a quiet school morning. I rushed into my second-grade classroom and observed a blind man very intently using a tuning fork to tune our classroom piano. As I watched how he took an old, broken-down piano and turned it into a wonderful-sounding instrument, an interesting thought came into my mind: If he could fine-tune an old piano using sound, I was sure sound could fine-tune our bodies. Many practitioners use the power of these vibrations to create custom tuning fork techniques.
Sound and healing practices:
I am Native American, and as in many indigenous cultures, sound and nature are often incorporated into healing practices. The combination of my being Mescalero Apache and a massage therapist and instructor has given me the opportunity to develop wonderful techniques that utilize the healing properties of sound.
I have developed training courses for massage therapists and bodyworkers involving sound therapy using tuning forks. Basic training is required; check your state and local laws to be sure you meet the requirements before offering any sound therapy technique.
A tuning fork session for feet:
Sound therapy with tuning forks is very relaxing for clients and allows you to provide an easy, practitioner-friendly therapy to specific areas of the client’s body. In a tuning fork session I designed for the feet, I focus on the sound of om, which is at frequency 136.1 hertz; I have found this sound to be successfully relaxing for my clients.
I start by using warm, moist towels to wrap the client’s feet for a few minutes, to relax the feet. I cover one foot and massage the other foot, using a slow, sweeping stroke. I strike a tuning fork on a rubber striker, and using light pressure, place the tuning fork on the ball of the foot. I continue on the tips of the toes, starting with the big toe and working my way to the baby toe, striking the fork on the striker before applying it to each toe tip. Then, after striking the fork again, using light pressure, I finish the routine by placing the tuning fork on several points of the heel of the foot, working from the left of the heel to the right of the heel. I then cover that foot and begin on the other foot.
Getting trained in tuning fork therapy is one way to add a simple, unique offering to your menu of spa services.
