Crystal Healing

Crystals have been recognised for thousands of years for their unique healing properties and have been used for centuries as a means of alleviating illness. Crystals vibrate at different rates thus having the ability to affect our entire system. Each crystal / mineral has its own energy frequency; they can be used alone or combined with reiki for added strength in a healing treatment.

Crystal Healing - What is it?

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 seven basic energy centres in the body, each having a colour associated with it. Crystal healers place the same colour crystals as the colour of the chakras on the person to enhance the flow of energy.

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 bad spiritual energy alleviates the physical ailment.

Crystals are used for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing. Not only do people visit "crystal healers", in some places, professional nurses are being trained to use crystals for their patients. Additionally, crystals can be worn, placed next to a person's bed as they sleep, and in some cases placed around a person's bath.

The originator of crystal healing is unknown. However, this practice has been around for centuries. People have used amulets, magical stones, and gems all throughout history (though mainly in the eastern cultures). It is now making its way into the western culture.

Crystal healers commonly prefer clear quartz, because of its shape and colour. However, since chakras have colours associated with each area, they may place the specific colour crystal/gemstone on the same colour chakras. The crystals/gemstones are said to have vibration frequencies that are shape induced, interconnecting the earth's and the individual's energy field. The crystal is used to amplify, or realign, human 'psychic' or cosmic energy by directing vibration energy.

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.
