John of God Crystal Healing Bed

On Friday, my mom and I both tried a John of God Crystal Healing bed. My mom has some issues with her neck so when she was visiting this weekend, we checked it out.

I first learned about this bed through this article. I was intrigued after reading Harry Oldfield’s Invisible Universe and learning about the medical uses of crystals, especially in conjunction with light therapy.

The approach is straightforward – for 20 minutes (you can work up to 60 minutes at a time) you lay on a bed while 7 Vogel cut crystals are angled towards your chakras, or main energy centers of your body. Each light has a corresponding color that aligns with each of your chakras.

The instructions I was given were to be well hydrated, wear all white (even underwear) and to set an intention then relax and remain still.

For 20 minutes I listened to relaxing music and gurgling water while the lights flicked on and off, shining through the crystals positioned over my body. I wasn’t sure if I was going to feel anything, but a few minutes in, I felt a shiver of energy go through my torso and arms. I felt it move through my legs and then I lost track of time.

When Jeni, the owner of the crystal healing bed, came in to let me know the session was over, I felt like I was coming out of a trance or deep massage. It took me a few moments to re-ground myself and when I sat up, I felt completely relaxed and at peace.

For $30, I thought it was an excellent treatment option for anyone looking for a non-invasive way to treat their body on not just a cellular but etheric level as well.

I slept like a rock that night.

Has anyone else had an experience with this bed or other crystal therapies? I’d love to hear about your experiences!
