Crystals are having a full-blown moment on the wellness scene, and Kalisa Augustine's quartz-filled Upper East Side studio is right in the middle of it.
Crystal healing has joined the ranks of acupuncture, Reiki, sage cleansing, and guided meditation. More people than ever before are placing great faith in these hot rocks that date back to ancient civilizations and have even been referenced in Sanskrit. Wearing them on your body or positioning some in your home is said to create an energy balance that aids in relationships, healing, and reaching one’s full potential.
It might seem questionable to call something so historically established a "trend," but the New Age stones are causing more buzz than ever these days. Spiritual influencers like Gabrielle Bernstein are devoted to crystals, and so are celebrities like Madonna, Katy Perry, Miranda Kerr, and Victoria Beckham. The beauty industry is also giving a nod to the gems, with a just launched crystal-inspired highlighter from Glossier, and crystal-infused skin care from luxe brands like Kita. Even the social media masses are tuning into their #vibes.
Augustine is an energy healer and entrepreneur with a kind, modern-goddess-like presence whose practice has become an oasis for stressed city-dwellers seeking calm and regeneration. She's taken traditional crystal healing to another level with her crystal beds that create a full body, energy-balancing experience. If one crystal has power, imagine resting on a bed that’s packed with the healing stones.
