Crystal healing is a holistic alternative medical technique which uses crystals and other stones to cure ailments and protect against disease. It is believed that crystals act as conduits for healing. As crystals carry a certain vibration which is often a higher frequency than ours, they raise our vibration to their own. This allows positive, healing energy to flow into the body, and negative energy to flow out.
This alternative treatment is not however recognised by doctors and scientists, who believe it is a pseudoscience. There is no scientific research to show the benefits of it. Nevertheless, crystal healing is a growing treatment at health spas and therapy centres, and I have personally known people who have benefitted from this.
Crystal healing practitioners believe that crystals have properties that facilitate healing. Research shows crystal healing dates back at least 6,000 years to the Ancient Egyptians who used crystals including lapis lazuli, carnelian and turquoise to ward off illness and negative energy. Eastern Medicine works on the principle of life force energy, that balancing this is key to optimum health. Crystal Healing is about balancing the life force energy.
So how do people do crystal healing:
• People can use crystals themselves by placing them on parts of their body that need healing, or the chakra’s to create a healing effect.
• People become trained in the various different crystal types and themselves become crystal healers
• People combine this with other alternate therapies such as Reiki to empower the healing
Which ever way they are used, they cannot do any harm, so enjoy working with these beautiful natural stones.
