What is Crystal Healing or Crystal Therapy? Crystal Healing is the ancient and sacred art of laying crystals, gemstones and minerals on the body in accordance with energy centers known as chakras. The energy delivered by the arranged crystals blends and resonates within the energy centers of the body to promote self-healing. This form of vibrational medicine allows the body to resolve energetic imbalances and to help facilitate a healing response. Crystals can absorb, amplify, transmute and balance energies in the body to assist healing on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.
Each crystal has a unique vibrational resonance. They owe their unique qualities to their mineral content, their inherent (sacred) geometry and the color frequency they emit. That’s why crystals are used in watches, computers, machinery, laser technology etc.
Some of the earliest recorded history of crystal healing has been traced back to Ancient Egypt and references can be found in the Ebers Papyrus. India’s Ayurvedic records and traditional Chinese medicine also mention healing with the use of crystals dating back to 5000 years ago. Crystal Healing was also widely used by the Native Americans, by the Ancient Greeks, the Druids and many other cultures.
Crystal healing 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.
What happens during a crystal healing session? A crystal healing session will begin with a brief consultation which allows me to determine which crystals would suit you best. Then, you will lie on the table, fully clothed while relaxing music is playing in the background. We will begin by sensing the energy in the chakras to determine if it’s flowing properly, then I begin placing the appropriate crystals. Throughout the session I will continue to check your breathing and how the crystals are performing, making changes as needed. At the end of the session we will discuss any imbalances, answer any questions and make recommendations.
….Vibrational healing, of which crystal healing is a form, attempts to transform human consciousness and deal with illness by working with the energetic patterns that guide the physical manifestation of life. It is based on the principle that each human being is more than the physical body that we can see and touch. The physical body itself is made of matter that is now believed to be a complex network of interwoven dynamic energy fields. This energetic network which represents the physical/cellular framework is organised and nourished by subtle energetic systems which coordinate the life force within the body. It is primarily from these subtle levels that health, and illness, originates. These unique energy systems are powerfully affected by emotions and levels of spiritual balance, as well as by nutritional and environmental factors. The practitioner will try to help the client address all the issues concerned as well as help their subtle and physical bodies to re-establish their natural balance…. ~Dr. Richard Gerber,Vibrational Medicine
