Crystal healing has been gaining popularity in recent years, but what is it really and how does it work?
What is crystal healing?
Crystal healing is an alternative medical technique that uses crystals and stones to cure ailments and protect against disease. It is believed that by placing crystals and gemstones on the patient’s body healing energy can flow into the body and negative, disease-causing energy can flow out of it.
Even though it is getting more and more popular in the New Age circles, many refer to it as ‘pseudoscience’ as there is no scientific proof that it helps with preventing or reversing disease in the body. Nevertheless, many people run to it and report wonderful results after crystal healing session that often is paired with Reiki or some other practices.
Where does it come from?
How crystal healing came into being? The practice of crystal healing is ancient and dates back to the times of the ancient Sumerians and Mesopotamia. Even ancient Egyptians used to adorn themselves with crystals to ward off illness and negative energy.

How does a crystal healing session look like?
During a treatment session, a certified practitioner places various stones and crystals on person’s body, aligned with chakra points. This is all based on healer’s knowledge and belief in energy imbalances and chakra philosophy. Again, there may be no scientific proof for this method of healing, yet many people report feeling better after the session. Is it placebo or there’s really something to crystal healing, we may only guess.
There were various experiments conducted to test the efficiency of crystal healing and results show that both groups, those using real stones and crystals and those using placebo, reported feeling better after the session was over. So, it is individual decision whether to embrace and test yourself this new healing method.
DIY crystal healing session
The good thing about crystal healing is that you don’t need to spend a lot of money and visit a trained practitioner, you can test it yourself in the comfort of your home if you have some crystals and gemstones to work with. Lay down in comfortable position and start placing crystals on your body. You can do this by placing each crystal on one of your chakra points or you can go by your intuitive hits and place them in random manner. How to choose the right crystals? Again, you can either do a bit of research or you can simply go by the color and make it match the color of each chakra that you are placing a crystal or stone on. After you are done with placing the crystals, lay down comfortably as long as you wish and try to relax as much as possible.
Christopher French said: “There’s no evidence that crystal healing works over and above a placebo effect”, but even if that’s true, why not allow yourself to experience that placebo effect, if it will bring you any kind of relief.
Other than crystals and gemstones, you can also add Orgonites into your little private crystal healing sessions and we highly recommend these Baby Orgonite Pyramids that you can place on your chakra points while you are laying down in relaxed state.
