One of the most elusive pseudoscientific practices of alternative medicine has to do with simply placing colorful crystals on your body for a soothing, calming effect. They harmonize your inner energy and subtly soothe your aura at first before healing physiological ailments.
Crystal Healing History
Crystals have been used to heal and restore balance since the earliest times. Egyptians, Chinese, Romans, India’s Ayurvedic medicine as well as traditional Tibetan medicine, Native Americans and more have all had some connection with crystals.
These civilizations have utilized the power of crystals to facilitate the free flow of energy throughout the body. Ancient Egyptians believed crystals to be protective, while they’ve been used as talismans (a stone used for protection) and healing stones (typically jade) for thousands of years. Of course, countless cultures collected them for their beauty in jewelry and ornate décor, usually symbolizing status and wealth.
Hidden Power of Healing Crystals
Since our minds control us, body and spirit, then even having colorful, natural raw gems next to your bed, or laying on your desk will do a world of good. Bear in mind that your body is made up of energy patterns that differ in densities. These patterns form an intricate electromagnetic system, known as the vibrational energy system. When these patterns of energy flow together, there is inner harmony and your body is in its healthiest state.
Any disruption of these patterns will send this state of harmony into a frenzy, and things get bad pretty quickly. This could be anything from a migraine to a more serious disease with serious repercussions.
Crystals are structured so that they act as the perfect electromagnetic conductors. They have a positive effect on our health and well-being. They act like a tuning fork that retunes our bodies to their original innate natural patterns of energy. They are a reliable and consistent source of harmony and vitality.
Each stone resonates with a slightly different geometric pattern. They are living, active participants in nature. Protons, neutrons, and electrons fly around in balance and participating in patterns.
Modern crystal therapy is generally thought of as a noninvasive, holistic treatment for both mental and physical ailments.
Those who rely on this type of treatment depend on the fact that upon carefully placing certain crystals on various parts of the body will result in a form of healing and relaxation.
There may not be a lot of supporting scientific proof to strongly back up crystal therapy; it has stood the test of time, which is more than enough for some people.
The Healing Crystal Practice
Quartz crystal and our bodies are made up of the same mineral, silicon dioxide. This is why our bodies are in tune with the vibrations emitted by crystals. Each type of crystal has special, one-of-a-kind properties, ranging from resonance, to color, to energy, to mineral content and inherent geometry.
Crystal healers, or practitioners, choose the stones that are most beneficial to you at that specific moment based on color and metaphysical qualities.
When these crystals are placed onto the body, they create a powerful vibratory effect that surges from the crystal to you.
Since different crystals resonate at different frequencies, this helps in the release of negative energy, therefore aiding in the physical and emotional healing process.

Every one of us has inside him three mentalities, the positive, the negative, and the neutral. Due to our hectic lifestyles, we have been programmed to seek out the negative mindset first, before even thinking of applying the positive or the neutral. It’s our natural protective instinct.
When our negative mindset takes over, we see everything as undesirable, unattractive, and depressing. One of the best ways to relieve this negativity is by pursuing the healing powers of crystals. When used as a means of therapy, they can help us become more grounded and centered, connecting body, mind, and spirit.
