Crystal bowl playing produces strong pitches and it's through these vibrations that people say they are healed.
Anita Wilder was born with scoliosis. The pain was enhanced after a car accident 25 years ago.
"I've been dealing with pain, I've been dealing with doctors, so I was very open. I wanted healing. I wanted to be healed so I didn't hurt," said Anita Wilder who says she was healed.
Anita says within five minutes of hearing the vibrations from crystal bowls, her spine was straight.
"It was a healing. I could just feel it come in through the crown of my head and straight down through my body," said Wilder. "I feel so much better. I don't hurt. I can carry my wood in and out of my house. I can pick up my grandchildren."
The bowls are different shapes and made with all sorts of gems, which have varying affects on the body.
"These gem stones like citrine, if you research this, has a profound affect on the power center. People are told if you feel weak, wear citrine. It will pump you up. When you put this in a crystal bowl things are amped up even that much more," said Michael Taylor or "MT" who is a metaphysician.
Each bowl makes a unique pitch, which corresponds to a part of your body, or chakra, which is an energy center.
"So each chakra as it's note resonates, produces a color: red, orange, yellow, green for the heart, blue for the throat. The third eye is indigo and the crown is violet," said MT.
The colors correspond to parts of the body and soul. MT says he can see color, which is energy and so can the people being worked on.
"People are stressed out to the max. This goes out of whack and in turn affects this and in turn affects the adrenal glands, so we get worn out. By balancing this stuff out, these organs, with energy, people can get on with their life," said MT.
The vibrations are supposed to have a calming affect emotionally and physically and re-distribute the energy. MT says he doesn't plan what or where to play, but is guided.
"Most of us have either emotional or mental blocks and these bowls tend to release that and help us move on with life," said MT.
