Have you heard of crystal healing or stone healing?? Hi friends, I’m so excited to share this information with you!

For the past several years, I’ve been studying more natural solutions to health care, such as dietary changes, exercise and yoga, meditation and even the benefits of crystals.  Fortunately, right before this whole Covid_19 thing began, a friend of mine, Jennifer Von Behren, offered me a free mat therapy session to experience her new invention The Body Mat®  which utilizes stone therapy which may help to heal areas of the body.

Just like most of the rest of you, I’ve been in quarantine for over a month now. All of our routines have changed and it’s been stressful for many reasons. We can’t spend time with our friends, we go to the gym; our only real retail therapy involves food, medications…. and the never-ending search for toilet paper!

I had begun to practice meditation in the past 2 years but it has become even more important now. I run my own business, take on too many projects and I’ve only just realized that I have anxiety and probably have had it since I was 11 This is why I was so excited to not only experience a body mat session but to be given a personal mini mat to use for my meditations!

Anything that exists in our universe, whether seen or unseen, broken down into and analyzed into its purest and most basic form consists of pure energy or light which resonates and exists as a vibratory frequency or pattern. All matter, thoughts and feelings have their own vibrational frequency. ~  Jennifer von Behren

The session was great!  It was relaxing and I felt a cooling sensation on my back, which is interesting because I’ve having trouble with it lately.

The Body Mat® comes in several sizes: Practioner, Personal – great for lying on and for yoga , Mini, Little Lotus and one just for pets. Here’s my personal Mini Body Mat! The stones are encased in a substance that is environmentally friendly and
100% EMF Pollution-free.
