HOW DOES CRYSTAL THERAPY WORK
We know that the crystals work on unbalanced energies within our bodies, but you may be wondering how this is possible. Crystals are used for healing because they have the ability to emit energy vibrations and absorb and diffuse these waves to balance out a sick or diseased body. An example of this can be seen in a watch; when a crystal was placed in a watch, the battery released a consistent charge throughout the crystal. The same idea is true in our bodies; the crystals act on the electromagnetic fields within the body.
A typical crystal healing session begins with an initial consultation where a therapist will assess your ‘aura.’ The aura is directly related to the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual condition and determines the way energy flows within the body. Your therapist will then select the appropriate crystals based on the assessment; these will be designed to restore the balance of energy within the body. After your initial consultation, patients are asked to lie down in a relaxing setting and the crystals are placed on the body. Some individuals report calming effects and symptoms of energies shifting within the body.
CONDITIONS THAT CAN BE TREATED
Crystal therapy can be used to treat the following ailments:
• Stomach, Liver, and Throat Issues – The aquamarine stone is associated with the thymus gland and throat chakra making it helpful in treating a variety of everyday ailments. This centuries old treatment was practised by the Romans to cure diseases of the stomach, liver, and, throat.
• Headaches- Crystals can be an effective headache relief tool once you have determined the type and source of a headache you are experiencing. Amethyst, amber, and turquoise placed around the head is most effective for a tension headache, while lapis lazuli is the best treatment for a migraine headache. For headaches caused by stress, lack of food, or an imbalance of energy, solar plexus balancing stones like citrine or moonstone are the most efficient treatment.
• Mind Healing- A healing session with crystals or wearing them near you can help with blockages or if you are experiencing emotional distress. To treat these conditions, choose a traditional healing colour known for the reduction of mental and emotional stress like green jade. Other stones known to cleanse emotions are blue lattice agate, rose quartz, opal, amethyst, and amber.
• Lack of Energy- To boost your energy throughout the day, red, yellow, and orange healing crystals can give you the drive you are trying to achieve. Gemstones like tiger’s eyes, jasper, and dark citrine will also increase motivation.
