Aura/Chakra Analysis January 28, 2016 12:00 pm to 7:00 pm at Crystal River Gifts 

Aura Photography


Interactive Aura Photography uses a technology known as “Biofeedback,” since a physical reading of one’s bio-signs is the main method of an Aura analysis. This information is received from a hand sensor plate. The hand sensor itself has various contact points on it, connected to certain organs of the body. These data parameters are projected as a radiant, color aura field around the body on a photo or a computer screen. This imaging truly brings out the energetic manifestation of your soul! The colors actually reflect your spiritual and auric state. Through Interactive Aura Photography, you can see the effects of crystals, flower essences, essential oils, and energy healing as it is happening in real time.
