What is Integrative Energy Healing?

Integrative Energy Healing (I.E.H.)is a gentle non-invasive approach to healing. It facilitates a path to wellness of your body, mind and spirit through accessing information from your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies.

Based on principles of Western scientific energy medicine and ancient Eastern knowledge, the goal of I.E.H. is to awaken your body’s innate healing potential, empowering you to realize total heath through intention, breathing and guidance.

Each session begins with the client briefly sharing information that the client feels is important to the session treatment. Next the client sets an intention for the session. Based on this information, I will select from a range of treatments which best addresses the needs of the client. I use my hands to energetically balance and clear energy moving through and around your body. I.E.H. is equally beneficial with or without direct physical touch and clients are fully clothed during a treatment. Using awareness dialogue, I encourage the client to be an active participant in the healing process.

We will end the session by sharing the experience, bringing greater awareness to any personal transformation and experiences of the treatment.

To complete the treatment there is the option of receiving a personalized Flower Essence. Flower essences are a gentle, effective way of treating and supporting spiritual, emotional and mental issues. They are a vibrational modality and made from the flower of the plant. I use a non-alcoholic preservative which I feel best supports the vibrational quality of the essence.

What are the benefits of Integrative Energy Healing?

  • relieving physical, mental and emotional pain and/or trauma
  • helps to strengthen the immune system and build resistance to disease.assists in relieving stress, anxiety and trauma.
  • allows for a re-connection to wholeness on a soul level. This brings about deep awareness and understanding of the physical body and its emotional/spiritual connection. 

What is Crystal Bed Therapy?

Where did the concept for the Crystal Beds come from?

The concept of the Crystal Bed, also called Crystal Bath Therapy or Applied Chromo Therapy, was channeled to John of God in Brazil who then had it developed for practical use and incorporated it as an important healing modality at his healing center affectionately known as "the Casa". For visitors to the Casa, the Crystal Healing Beds are available to all and are prescribed by the Healing Spirit Guides of the Casa for rejuvenation, alignment and balancing of the our energy fields, which in turn aids in the process of spiritual and physical healing.

What is a Crystal Bed and how does it work?

Crystal Bed Healing combines the power of colour therapy and crystal healing therapy, using seven, exquisitely pure, specially cut, colour-lighted quartz crystals to channel healing energy. As colour is transmitted through each crystal onto the corresponding human chakras (or energy centers), the chakras are cleansed, energized, and brought into balance. This allows for deeper, more subtle energies within the individual to be brought into balance, as well, and places the body in a state to ignite it's own healing. The individual receiving the session rests face up with eyes closed, bathing in the energy

What makes a Crystal Bath so special?

The "Crystal Bed" combines the power of Color Therapy and Crystal Healing Therapy. This energy stream produces beneficial stimulation on many physical and energetic levels of being. This combination of healing energies is further and GREATLY ENHANCED, by the Healing Entities of the Casa de Dom Inacio. These Spiritual Beings work in and around the Casa de Dom Inacio and with all those deeply connected to the Casa family. These are also the entities that are incorporated by the Medium Joao Teixeira de Faria, also known as John of God. The illuminated crystals create a portal that the Entities use to channel their healing energy to the individual receiving the Crystal Bed Healing session.

What will I experience in my Crystal Bed session?

People feel all manner of sensations during and after sessions - pressure, weight, lightness, heaviness, hot, cold, wind, all manner of body sensations, tickling, tingling etc. The crystals can evoke feelings of peace and serenity, and typically a very deep relaxation. You may simply fall asleep and wake up feeling very refreshed and renewed. You may experience insights and release of specific personal issues and memories. You may have feelings of warmth, movement, expansion, cleansing, or a feeling of being touched. Some people feel sensations of physical healing taking place, as they feel the presence of the healing spirits working directly on their physical bodies. Your awareness may even extend beyond yourself to higher states of consciousness.

How is a Crystal Bed Healing treatment conducted?

Crystal Bed Healing is safe and non-invasive. The person receiving the session simply removes their shoes and glasses then lies fully clothed on a massage table below the suspended crystals, so that each of the seven crystal aligns with the corresponding chakra. Once the person is comfortable, an eye pillow is placed over their eyes. The lights in the room are dim, soft music is turned on, and finally the pulsating lights, shining through the crystals are turned on. All the individual need to do is have an open heart/mind, surrender into relaxation or even fall sleep. The light, the crystals, and the healing spirit beings will do the rest. Each and every person who receives Crystal Bed Healing reports a different effect, each experience being relevant and unique to his/her own condition, needs, and level of awareness. Many people who have experienced the crystal bed also feel themselves in an altered state after a session. Many say they feel the sensation of being worked on by spirit light beings, some float back into past lives, and some a feeling of great attunement to spirit. The experience is uniquely individual.

What do I do after a Crystal Bed Healing?

No matter what the experience, it is advisable for the individual to rest after a Crystal Bed Healing session to fully absorb the experience. It is also advisable to drink several glasses of water over the next several hours to help rid the body of any toxins or waste products, which tend to be released through the cleansing action of the Crystal Healing. It also can be helpful to write down the experiences and guidance, which can occur during the healing session, to help integrate and ground the experience into your life.

Ronaye Ireland's Crystal Bed

The Entities often prescribe Crystal Bed Therapy at the Casa de Dom Inacio in Brazil. While in Brazil, Ronaye was given special permission by John of God to own a Crystal Bed and use it in her healing practice. Medium Joao and the Entities of Light have blessed the Quartz crystals of her Crystal Bed. Providing an original Casa crystal bed outside of the confines of the Casa - with the specific recommendation and connection with the Entities - brings the energy and healing vibration of the Casa to you. Because space and time are an illusion, the entities are able to be present here and work directly with those who seek their healing and guidance through the Crystal Bed. It is a special privilege to receive the energy generated from this powerful healing tool without having traveling to Brazil. Ronaye also has a prayer triangle blessed by John of God, used at the Casa to connect to the Entities. To maximize your experience she recommends that you write a prayer or intention to be placed inside the Prayer Triangle while you are experiencing the benefits of the Crystal Bed.

More about these Crystals

The crystals for the Crystal Bed were mined in a small town called Garimbo de Ouro in Brazil where Gold and precious stones, Quartz crystals, and Amethyst lie beneath the surface of most of that area resulting in a profound energy emanating from the land. John of God says that the crystals making up the bed, were "born in beds of water, deep beneath the earth." They were extracted from the earth and personally selected and guaranteed by John of God. Each of the seven crystals came from a single stone and was carefully polished to exacting standards.

Scientific Observations on Crystal Therapy

Crystals have some of the highest molecular orderliness found in nature. Light passing through the crystal will resonate with the structured patterns of the crystal. Water can take on a variety of molecular patterns. It is know that when water forms well organized and geometrically shaped molecule patterns, it has increased surface tension and bonding properties. This is the pure state of water found in healthy cell tissue, while 'un-geometric' and disorganized water molecules are found in unhealthy cells and cancer cells. Thus, one explanation for the health giving effects of crystal therapy is that the well-organized vibration resonating from the crystals helps to organize the water in our tissues and cells. Marcel Vogel, an IBM engineer, spent his lifetime investigating quartz crystals. Much of our understanding of crystal therapy, as well as the precision cutting of the Crystal Bed's Quartz crystals was developed through his research. He designed experiments demonstrating the power of crystals to affect physical processes. Some of the experiments of Vogel and his associates proved the following: 

  • A precisely cut quartz crystal produces a constant vibration of the same frequency as water in its purest state.     
  • Moving water will pick up the vibration from the crystal through resonant interaction and this transferred charge will restructure the water. 
  • A cut crystal can be charged with intent to structure water. Since we are made up of 90% water this carries strong implications for how our body and health can be affected.

What is Integral Sound Massage?

This is a comprehensive method of harmonization of body and mind, progressing you to reach your full potential and alignment of your “one internal system”.

Peter Hess® Sound Massage is the scientifically proven method of sound therapy from German physicist and pioneer in this field, Peter Hess. Peter Hess developed this method in the early 1980's when he was inspired by his experiences in Tibet, India and Nepal and since then, it has found its application in various medical fields and institutions as an integral part of complementary therapy based on observation and research.

How does it work?

The treatment uses high quality Peter Hess® Therapy Singing Bowls which are gently played on the client’s covered body. Their gentle and harmonious sounds and vibrations are absorbed into the whole body, aiding the client into an alpha and partially theta brainwave state (i.e. the state just before sleeping, dreaming / meditative state). This promotes, healing, harmonization and relaxation through perception and processing of vibratory motion of a sound (somatic sensory processing / stimulation). There are different types of sound massages, ranging from basic to more individually tailored treatments (that concentrate on the focal points of the client), as well as Sound Bath or Sound Journey as guided group relaxation experience.

After the initial sound massage, the feedback given by the client will determine the next course of action; designing further sound treatments with a focused approach on individual needs and requirements. Treatment is usually composed of five sessions over a three week period: -initial interview, basic sound massage and client feedback, individually tailored sound massages for up to the next four sessions, at the end of the treatment the therapist and client can discuss the results and agree upon any further treatments.

Sound Massage and tuning forks provides:

  • A deep state of relaxation
  • Harmonization of each and every body cell with gentle vibratory motion
  • Releases tension and blockages of physical, emotional and mental concerns
  • Facilitates the release of negative patterns
  • Strengthens a primal credence of the body
  • Promotes health harmonization by revitalization and rejuvenation
  • Supports and enhances one’s body awareness
  • Enables access and increases the utilization of one’s own resources
  • Strengthens concentration, self-confidence, creativity and motivation
  • Reintroduces joy to life

What happens during and after the session?

As previously mentioned, during the session, sensations are accompanied by various stages of relaxation, sometimes one sees colours and images, experiences emotions, deep sleep and a sense of lucid dreaming. Mainly the sensation of deep relaxation is most commonly experienced. Reactions are individual and they are based on a state of a body and mind – sound massage will first promote health and growth of vital support (healthy) areas and offer harmonization and healing to acute areas.

After a session, drink plenty of water, this will aid the body to release toxins, as most people feel deeply relaxed. A period of an hour is recommended to stay indoors.There is generally a three-day adjustment period after a session. Your body will be healing itself and you may feel aches and pains as the body integrates the healing you have received.

In some cases, sound massage will reawaken a body memory from parts physical trauma (i.e. operation, broken bone), and a sensation will return for a while before disappearing altogether.
