Many believe the ancient practice of crystal healing dates back 6,000 years to the times of the Sumerians of Mesopotamia. Egyptians wore crystals and precious stones to ward off negative energy and to prevent illness or to facilitate healing from illness. Healing with crystals is a time held tradition.
In modern times crystal healing is based on old traditional concepts borrowed from Asian cultures, most notably the concept of life-energy (chi or qi) from the Chinese and the Hindu or Buddhist concept of chakras. The energy of the crystals are used to interact with the electromatic field of your body. Each crystal vibrates at a certain vibrational frequency as does the various parts of the human body. This assists in promoting the emotional, spiritual and physical healing of an individual using crystals.Crystal healing is a holistic and natural therapy that taps into the energetic power of crystals and how they affect the body and mind.
During a treatment session, a crystal healer places various stones or crystals on your body aligned with the seven chakra points, roughly in the regions above the head, on the forehead, on the throat, on the chest, on the stomach, on the gut, and on the genital area. The stones used and their positioning may be chosen for the symptoms reported by the client. This is all influenced by the healer's knowledge of, and belief in, the chakra philosophy of disease and energy imbalances and the personal intuition of the healer.
A crystal healing therapist places healing crystals on or around a client to help unblock, focus and guide energy. Crystal healing uses the energy of the crystals for healing. This means it is based on the belief that we are all made up of different energies and that when the energies become dense, clustered, stagnant, unbalanced, or blocked, it can cause illness. The idea is that crystal healing shifts the energy to unblock, balance, and guide the energy where it is most needed, gently supporting the body to heal in a therapeutic way. Crystal healers have extensive knowledge of the various crystals and stones and how they affect you and they are able to use the energy from the crystals in healing sessions. Your crystal healer uses the stones that are products of the Earth to assist clients to be able to accomplish greater potential by having a balanced and healthy body, mind and spirit.
