Healing With Crystals
Crystal healing is basically a healing therapy that uses a combination of crystals and gemstones. These healing crystals are placed on specific areas of our bodies called ‘chakras’. ‘Chakra’ is a Hindu term for life force energy, and there are 7 main energy centres in our body, each having a colour associated with it.
When involved in crystal healing it is important to place the same colour healing crystals as the colour of the chakra on the person to enhance his/her flow of energy. Healing Crystals are said to direct an increased flow of energy to a particular part of a person’s body – helping to correct and heighten their inner balance of energy.
