Crystal healing is the use of crystals and other stones to aid the healing of ailments and to protect against disease. The history of this practice is ancient, dating back at least 6,000 years to Mesopotamia. Ancient Egyptians also adorned themselves with crystals — including lapis lazuli, carnelian and turquoise — to ward off illness and negative energy.
But the philosophy of modern crystal healing is based on traditional concepts borrowed from Asian cultures, most notably the Chinese concept of life-energy (chi or qi) and the Hindu or Buddhist concept of chakras, which are centers of this life-energy that connect the physical and energetic elements of the body.
Crystal healing utilizes this ancient knowledge and combines it with modern techniques to create and accelerate healing.
How Crystal Healing Works
In crystal healing, stones are assigned various properties. Amethyst, for example, is believed by some to be beneficial for opening intuition; rose quartz helps the heart energy; yellow topaz provides mental clarity. Colors red through violet are associated with the seven chakra points on the body.
During a healing session, crystals may be placed on the various parts of the body which align with the chakra points. The crystals provide specific energy stimulus to assist with healing.
