Every crystal or stone has a unique electromagnetic vibration that facilitates healing through its placement on or around the body. Crystals act as conduits of energy allowing positive healing energy in, while at the same time allowing negative energy out. During my energy sessions I combine Crystal Therapy with Reiki and Qi Gong because they complement, reinforce and enhance each other when healing the body, the mind, and the soul. Additionally, they induce relaxation and reduce stress levels.
The use of crystals as a healing technique dates back at least 6,000 years when the Ancient Sumerians and Egyptians used several crystals to prevent illness and block negative energy. The use of jade in China has been known since before 3,000 BC due to its healing qualities. Today, Crystal Therapy is a widespread healing modality. There is more understanding about the qualities that each crystal brings based on their composition, structure and colour.
During my Crystal Therapy sessions, I place the crystals and the stones at the chakra centres. Usually, the colour of the crystal selected corresponds to the colour of each chakra. Some of the most common crystals used for healing include:
First Chakra: black tourmaline, hematite, smoky quartz, obsidian
Second Chakra: carnelian, moonstone, orange calcite
Third Chakra: tiger’s eye, citrine, yellow jasper
Fourth Chakra: rose quartz, jade, malachite
Fifth Chakra: sodalite, chrysocolla, blue calcite
Sixth Chakra: amethyst, lepidolite, lapis lazuli
Seventh Chakra: clear quartz, amethyst
