Children and adults with ADHD, Autism or indeed any Spectrum diagnosis, are often found to be more sensitive to what is going on around them or be affected by something that we cannot see or hear.
This, therefore, suggests that their energy may vibrate at a slightly higher frequency than neurotypical adults and children. It is unlikely that they may have a “sixth sense” although don’t rule it out!
As a result of this raised vibration, they can respond exceptionally well to crystal therapy.
Crystal therapy is a holistic and natural therapy that uses the energetic power of crystals to help support, heal and balance body and mind.
In scientific terms, we are all made up of energy. For instance, if the flow of energy within us becomes blocked or out of balance, this can cause illness and pain.
There are hundreds of different types of crystals, each one having its own unique energy and properties, and by vibrating at different rates.
The energy of crystals can affect our own on a physical, emotional and spiritual level by working with their and our vibrational frequency.
Therefore, by using the right crystal, we can “heal” our energy flow by unblocking, balancing and directing the crystal’s energy to wherever it is needed the most.
Crystal therapy is non-invasive and can be used on its own, as well as in addition to any other therapies.
However, not only can crystals be used during a healing session, they can also be carried about the person, such as in a pocket or in a piece of jewellery, allowing that energy to be with you throughout the day.
One example of this is to have specific crystals for anxiety or mental focus with you during an exam or an interview.
Crystals cannot cure anyone of Autism or ADHD, or ADD, Dyspraxia or any other disorder, but they can help with many of the symptoms in a gentle and non-invasive way.
Many children like crystals – their colours, shape and feel – and are happy for them to be placed on or near their body. But if this is not the case, crystal therapy can take place by distance and is just as effective.
In a healing session we look at treating the body and mind as a whole, as in balances in one can easily affect the other.
At the beginning of each session, we will discuss any requirements and what the ultimate goal is for the therapy.
A crystal healing session takes place with the recipient remaining full clothed and lying down in a comfortable position.
Crystals are then placed on or, if preferred, around the body to support whatever issues were raised during the consultation.
A short reiki treatment is given and then the crystals are left to work their magic!
On average, crystals can be left on the body anywhere between 30 to 45 minutes depending on what it is we are looking to treat.

How can CRYSTALS HELP?
Stress and Anxiety
Stress can exacerbate many symptoms such as hyperactivity. In addition, living with ASD can be stressful in itself. Studies have shown that Reiki can reduce feelings of stress and anxiety, lessening these symptoms and bringing a feeling of calm.
Quality of Sleep
Many people struggling with ADHD or ASD experience sleep disturbances, including trouble falling asleep, trouble staying asleep, problems with sleep cycles and more. These sleep disturbances have a direct effect on health and can make many symptoms worse. Reiki can help to improve these sleep patterns resulting in a more restful, restorative sleep.
People with ADHD can sometimes find it hard to calm down even if there is no obvious reason to be excited. Reiki can help induce relaxation and reduce hyperactivity. Over time, it may prove easier for someone with ADHD to relax outside a Reiki session.
Individuals with ADHD can be impatient, can interrupt and be impulsive, act or speak without thinking it through beforehand.
There are different protocols that can help aid and strengthen communication skills.
Crystals can also help with social kills and enhances group communication in children with autism.
