Crystal healing is a holistic and natural therapy that taps into the energetic power of crystals and how they affect the body and mind. A crystal therapist will place healing crystals on or around a client to help unblock, focus and direct energy.
Crystal healing is an energy-based system. This means it is based on the belief that we are all made up of different energies and that when this becomes stagnant, unbalanced or blocked, it can cause illness. The premise is that crystals help unblock, balance and direct energy where it is most needed, gently supporting the body to heal in a therapeutic way.
Different types of crystals have different properties and energies. Just holding and being near these crystals is therefore affects our own energies on a physical, spiritual and emotional level.
Crystal healers have extensive knowledge of the different stones and how they affect us, and are able to use them in healing sessions. There are several different ways this can be done, but the most common is to have the client lie down and place the crystals on or around them in a specific way.
The types of crystals used and the positioning of them will depend on what the client is seeking support for. This could range from a physical concern such as headaches or stress, to more emotional or spiritual concerns.
