I Tried This Super Vibrator To Heal My Chakras

And it worked wonders.

Last month, I received an invite to try out a Super Vibrator treatment at Spa Esprit to give me a happy ending. Obviously, I jumped on it because, who doesn’t want a happy ending, right? But if you’re imagining a giant sex toy that sent me into waves of ecstasy or a naughty massage that ends with a “happy ending” you’re… wrong. The treatment at Spa Esprit used vibrations and definitely delivered a happy ending—just of a different kind.

So what is it exactly?

The Spa Esprit Super Vibrator treatment combines the healing benefits of scent, sound and touch to heal your chakras. For the uninitiated, everyone has seven chakras or energy centres in their bodies. Think of these as the electrical wiring system of your body—they regulate the flow of energy.

However, due to illness or stress, the energy centres can get blocked. This is similar to Qi blockages in Traditional Chinese Medicine resulting in irregular energy flow throughout the body, which can cause even more stress and/or manifest itself as tension or muscle aches and other ailments.

A couple of weeks ago, I visited a TCM clinic, and was told by the physician that my Qi energy was, in fact, low. This was confirmed at my Super Vibrator treatment—every session starts with an aura/energy reading, which helps determine which chakras are lacking in energy. All you have to do is place your left hand on the biofeedback machine, close your eyes, clear your mind and take a few deep breaths. The reading takes less than a minute and you get your results on a printout.

In case you didn’t know how chakra maps work, here’s a map.

This was my reading before the treatment.

Given that I was a bit stressed and had the beginnings of a bad throat, my energy was low at the Root, Heart and Throat chakras. Then, I was asked to smell a couple of essential oils that were put on corresponding crystals, and had to pick one that resonated with me most. I picked Red Jasper—a blend of frankincense, cedarwood and orange on a red jasper crystal. Frankincense and cedarwood are both known for their healing properties, and orange for its ability to uplift the spirit.

It’s crucial to pick the scent that resonates with you the most because that will be your massage oil. Don’t overthink it, or go with notions of scents or other perfumes you like. Trust your instinct.

The treatment

Once you’ve picked out your massage oil, you’re ushered to a gorgeous treatment room. Forget the usual white, sterile massage rooms you know—mine was a rich purple and had crystals.

Before the full body Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage begins, the therapist will tap the Tingsha cymbals. These traditional Tibetan Buddhist cymbals are attached to each other with a leather string and are used in Buddhist religious rites as well as mediation. In this treatment, they are used to clear negative energy in the room and allow you to focus on the present.

As I focused on the crystal tone of the Tingsha cymbals, I felt the chaos in my mind slowly die down. The 100 thoughts that had been running through my head seemed to disappear.

All I could do next was focus on how good the long, flowing strokes felt on my muscles. Unlike other massages that focus on one area at a time, this involves strokes that go the length of the body. Another big difference is that it mostly involves the use of the forearms rather than palms. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it also incorporated gentle stretches and joint rotations.

I could feel the tension in my muscles melt away and my mind float in pure relaxation. Somewhere in the middle of the massage, the therapist brought in a warm Tibetan Singing Bowl filled with water and placed it on my abdomen, using the wooden mallet to rim it and create the vibrations that help move the energy in the chakras. I could feel it resonate deep within my abdomen. The vibrations on my stomach made me feel like a purring cat. Later, I found out that this was a sign that my body was attuned and balanced. She repeated the same on my back.

At the sound of the Tsingsha cymbals, I was brought back to reality feeling like I had awoken from a deep sleep.

So does it work?

This was my reading after the treatment.

At the end of the session, not only were my muscles relaxed, I felt lighter too—like a weight had been lifted off me or like someone had taken care of my never-ending to-do list (they had not). I felt calmer and more grounded. And my throat felt better (though I do not suggest you swap this for a doctor’s visit). I did another aura reading to make sure it wasn’t just a deep state of relaxation that was making me feel so calm.
