The philosophy of modern crystal healing is based on traditional concepts borrowed from Asian cultures, most notably the Chinese concept of Chi, the life energy and the Hindu or Buddhist concept of chakras, which are vortices of this life-energy, said to connect the physical and supernatural elements of the body. Crystal healers believe that crystals and gemstones have properties that facilitate healing. Many sites promoting crystal healing allege that the history of this practice is ancient, dating back at least 6,000 years to the time of the ancient Sumerians of Mesopotamia. Ancient Egyptians were among the first documented people to have adorned themselves with crystals — including lapis lazuli, carnelian and turquoise — to ward off illness and negative energy
In crystal healing, stones are assigned various properties to cure ailments and protect against disease by the crystal healer. Amethyst, for example, is believed by some to be beneficial for the intestines; green aventurine helps the heart; yellow topaz provides mental clarity. Colours of the visible spectrum, red through violet are associated with seven chakra points on the body. It is believed that crystals act as conduits for healing- allowing positive, healing energy to flow into the body while negative, disease-causing energy flows out. During a treatment session, a crystal healer may place various stones or crystals on the body aligned with the chakra points, roughly in the regions above the head, on the forehead, on the throat, on the chest, on the stomach, on the gut, and on the genital area. The stones used and their positioning may be chosen for the symptoms reported by the patient.
Crystal healing offers excellent stress relief and is particularly useful for people who suffer from migraines, insomnia, panic attacks, pain, stiff joints, digestive disorders, and chronic or severe illnesses such as cancer that require long-term support. It has also been found to be helpful in infertility and behavioural disorders. At an emotional level, crystal healing can stabilise moods and enhance self-esteem. At a mental level, it induces clarity and enhances focus.
