Crystals have been recognized for thousands of years for their unique healing properties and have been used for centuries as a way of alleviating illness. Crystals vibrate at different rates thus have the ability to affect our entire system. Each crystal/mineral has its own energy frequency. They can be used alone or combined with energy therapy for added strength in a healing treatment.
What is Crystal Healing?
Crystal healing is a form of healing that uses crystals or gemstones. The crystals are mainly placed on specific areas of the body called ‘Chakras’. Chakra is a Hindu term meaning spiritual energy. According to this teaching, there are 7 basic energy centres in the body, each having a colour associated with it.
Crystals are said to direct the flow of energy to the person in a particular part of the body and bring balance to a person’s energy. Ultimately they are used to cleanse the person from bad or negative energy believed to cause an illness, clearing out the negative energy alleviates the physical ailment. Crystals are used for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing. Additionally crystals can be worn, placed next to the person’s bed as they sleep and in some cases around a person’s bath.
Crystal Healing can help with deep relaxation, relief from stress, mind/body balance, greater self-confidence and abundant energy. By placing crystals on different parts of the body and allowing the client to relax, the crystals do their work.
While all of these therapies on this site are widely used to compliment conventional medicine, it is important to mention that they should not be used as a replacement for conventional medicine.
