Crystals have a long tradition of being used for crystal healing. Each variety of crystal has a unique internal structure, which causes it to resonate at a certain frequency. It is this resonance that is said to give crystals their healing abilities. Applying this resonance in a coherent way can help to restore stability and balance to the bodies energy systems, stimulating the body’s natural healing mechanisms. Crystal therapy is a gentle non-invasive form of alternative healing that works holistically to harmonize the mind, body, emotions and spirit, helping to increase our feeling of well-being, neutralize negativity, lift depression and to help us to become integrated, whole beings. Using Crystals for Crystal Healing Crystals can be placed on specific points of the body to bring relief or can be swept over the body using, for example, a crystal pendulum healing technique or a crystal wand healing technique. Carrying or wearing a crystal that resonates with a physical condition can also gently ameliorate the condition. Specific colour crystals can be used for chakra healing. They can be placed on the body using the Seven Colour Chakra Layout. Below are some examples of conditions and the crystals that can be used to alleviate them.
