A crystal healing treatment provides a relaxing time during which the body and mind let go of everyday stress and creates a harmonious feeling to receive change. By placing stones on the body, the gentle pressure of crystals on specific chakra points act to release tension and elevate a sense of peace.Historically, crystals and stones have a long tradition of being used in healing world-wide and their attribution as personal talismans imbued with protective power is well documented.Crystal therapy as part of energy medicine works holistically to cleanse and re-align the chakras, meridians and acupressure points, which may become blocked, weak, over-active or fragmented. Energy healing with crystals can address these imbalances and restore the energy field of the body and assist us in becoming focused, grounded and feeling complete.The efficacy of crystals in energy healing is attributed to their properties of electro-magneticity, colour spectrum and geological composition. Crystals have a unique internal structure according to their formation, e.g., trigonal, cubic, etc, and these varying properties correspond to a certain vibrational frequency that aligns the chakras, meridians and acupressure points of the body.

Applying specific crystals on the body can help to restore its energy systems and invigorate the body?s natural healing ability. A crystal therapy treatment is an effective way in which we can connect to our deeper self through the ‘earthy’ qualities of crystals. This can bring up forgotten issues which need to be released to accelerate healing on the physical, emotional and mental levels.

During a crystal therapy treatment, the chakras of the client are assessed to pick up imbalances and crystals are intuitively chosen to work on the issue. For example, a client with a blocked and weak solar plexus chakra, which is the power chakra dealing with self-confidence, might need a smoky quartz to clear and pull out any stagnation for them to be able to stand in their own power. Or if this chakra is over-active, a calming crystal, such as aquamarine, can be used to achieve balance.

Another example is if a client has problems with their root chakra, which deals with personal and material security issues, a garnet can be used to ground them and to reinforce a sense of security.? Or if the client has an over-active root chakra, a smoky quartz can be placed there to release excess energy and relax this area.

Grids of crystals can be used during a treatment to provide support, to cleanse, or for deep relaxation. A grid of rose quartz can enhance the ability to receive love, while a grid of citrine cleanses and brings in abundance and joy. Or a sodalite grid will promote a very chilled out feeling? for stressed out clients.

Overall, a crystal therapy treatment promotes bodily relaxation by releasing tension and boosts the person’s own healing capacity. Try the below layouts to connect with crystals.
