According to NYC luxury wellness center, Modrn Sanctuary, Crystal Bed Therapy opens, balances and clears the Chakra system…one of your body’s primary energy systems. There are so many different ways to change our vibes and balance our energy, but I most recently put Crystal Bed Therapy to the test! Here’s what happened when I tried Crystal Bed Therapy at Modrn Sanctuary.
A modern (get it) loft with a swinging chair, adult coloring books, and crystallized water. The whole place smells like Palo Santos (not to be confused with weed). Once through the waiting area, I entered a room with a bed and 7 crystal lights for each primary chakra or energy point in the body. Fun fact- there are actually thousands of chakra energies in our body, but The Crystal Bed focuses on the first 7: root, sacral, solar, heart, throat, third eye, crown.
First, I was asked to pick a frequency, aka chakra or energy to focus on healing during the session. I was also asked to pick an intention for the practice. Treatments are offered in 25 minutes to 45-minute sessions and are customized based on the intention and health benefits you are looking to achieve.
My session included crystal therapy, color therapy, vibration therapy, binaural beats, and infrared/bio mat. I laid down on a Quantum Resonance Crystal Bed which “utilizes vibrational tools of light, color, crystals, aromatherapy, and sound to pump energy into the cells of the body. As the color relating to each chakra is transmitted through the crystal, the chakra is cleansed, energized, and brought into balance with all of the other chakras.” English translation: Your energies will be aligned AF.
I was told based on the energy I wanted to focus on to think of the color red – our root chakra, which grounds us and balances the whole body’s energy. While imaging red I also was told to repeat my intentions into the universe. Huge headphones create sounds catering to your chosen Chakra and a mask covers your eyes.
Overall, I felt the different energies in my body working together. My body felt tingly yet relaxed, I felt chills yet warm. I felt light as a feather and repeated my intentions until I eventually dozed off into an energetic wonderland.
After the session, I went into the Himalayan (millennial) pink salt room post drowsy state to come back to a conscious relaxed state. Modern Sanctuary hosts yoga classes, private events, and private sessions in the pink salt room as well. I even contemplated joining the lunar eclipse/retrograde discussion in the salt room afterward to learn about astrology and how these new moon changes can affect my birth chart.
I was told that the treatment affects everyone differently and that I might feel the benefits immediately or days later. I went home and tested it by using my pendulum and all of my chakras were open (I know, I am weird). That night my fitness tracker told me I got 7 hours of restful sleep (coincidence, I think not).
