Are crystals used during reiki?

 Your practitioner may use crystals during your reiki session. Crystals are thought to   add an extra element of healing to the treatment by helping to release emotional,   mental, or spiritual blocks.

 Crystals may be placed on or around your body or you may be asked to hold a crystal.   There’s no research to support the use of crystals as improving the healing. But some   people claim they can have a calming effect and help with their healing.

 Examples of crystals that may be used include:

  • rose quartz
  • amethyst
  • moonstone
  • topaz
  • tourmaline
  • aquamarine
