If you've never heard of crystal therapy, reiki, or aura photos, prepare yourself – your mind will soon be teeming with those terms. The buzz centers on Sedona’s professed vortexes, or high energy power centers – a phenomenon that stems back to the '80s when psychic/author Page Bryant determined the area to be a vortex site.

Vortex Sites

Vortexes are centered on many of Sedona’s dramatic geological sites, including Cathedral Rock, Bell Rock, Airport Mesa, and Boynton Canyon. These energy fields are said to have the power to energize, enlighten – even heal – those who encounter them.
