Crystal Healing involves laying crystals on the body, enabling the recipient to receive the healing energy from the crystals. It is a gentle and relaxing but powerful treatment which can assist with mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing.
Crystal Healing is a form of energy healing, which means that it is based on the belief that everything, including humans, is made up of energy. Sometimes this energy can become blocked, or stagnant due to life experiences and this can cause pain or illness.
A crystal therapist will place healing crystals on or around a client to help unblock, focus and direct energy to clear any negative, blocked or stagnant energy, gently supporting the body to heal.
Different types of crystals have different properties and uses and therefore there are unlimited combinations and uses of crystals for healing. One common relationship is between crystals and chakras (the body’s main energy centres) for chakra balancing, which in turn, brings balance to the mind, body and soul. However, crystals may be placed and used on or around other areas of the body depending on the clients wants and needs.
Crystals have long been used throughout history for their properties, for instance Ancient Egyptians being buried with Lapis Lazuli charms, Ancient Greek soldiers would reportedly rub ground up crystals on themselves before battle as they believed it would make them stronger and to this day many Native American tribes hold turquoise as sacred. There are also examples of stones having similar perceived properties across different cultures even when there had been no interaction between the cultures, for instance, Jade was considered to be a kidney healing stone by the ancient Chinese, Aztec and Mayan civilisations.
Recipients remain fully clothed and lay on a massage table for the duration of the treatment.
