Crystal healing is an energy-based system. This means it is based on the belief that we are all made up of different energies and that when these become stagnant, unbalanced or blocked, they can cause illness. The premise is that crystals help unblock, balance, and direct energy where they are most needed, gently supporting the body to heal in a therapeutic way.
Different types of crystals are thought to have different properties and energies. Just holding and being near these crystals is, therefore, thought to affect our own energies on a physical, spiritual and emotional level.
Crystal healers have extensive knowledge of the different stones and how they affect us and are able to use them in healing sessions. There are several different ways this can be done, but the most common is to have the client lie down and place the crystals on or around them in a specific way. The types of crystals used and the positioning of them will depend on what the client is seeking support for. This could range from a physical concern such as headaches or stress to more emotional or spiritual concerns.
The idea of crystal healing may sound far fetched, but if you are open and willing to explore the world of energy healing, this is a wonderful place to start. It can also help to know what to expect before you book a session.
Sessions will be tailored to you and will differ depending on the nature of your concern. Your session will begin with a consultation. This is when you speak with your crystal therapist about what’s brought you to them and what you’re hoping for. Your therapist will ask a number of questions; crystal healing is a holistic approach, meaning it looks at all aspects of health (physical, mental and spiritual) and so your therapist will want to get a full picture.
Once you have had your consultation, your therapist will know what approach will work best for you, which crystals to use and how to place them. You will be made comfortable and asked to lie down (fully clothed) on a sofa or on cushions on the floor. When you are relaxed with your eyes closed, your therapist will begin placing crystals on and around your body. Sometimes the therapist will use a dowsing pendulum to help them determine where the crystals should go.
The crystals will be left in place for a certain amount of time (this will depend on your circumstances but can be anywhere from 20 minutes to over an hour). During this time you are encouraged to breathe deeply and simply relax. Your therapist may add or remove crystals during the session. Some people report feeling sensations (a warmth or tingle) while others feel nothing. Don’t worry if you don’t feel anything; this doesn’t mean your energies haven’t been affected. When the session is over, your therapist will remove the crystals and you’ll be encouraged to ground yourself in your body by becoming aware of your surroundings and physical sensations. Some people say they feel a difference in themselves immediately; for others it takes longer for the healing to take effect.
You may be recommended a number of treatments and often people choose to have ongoing treatments to support their overall health. As the healing takes place, you may experience an energetic detox, when negative energy quickly leaves your body. This can lead to difficult emotions being brought to the surface, so it’s important to ensure your crystal therapist is qualified and experienced to support you.
Crystal healing is a complementary and natural approach, meaning it can be used alongside traditional medicine and has no negative side effects. The benefits of crystal healing are varied and take place on several different levels.
Perhaps the most common benefit reported is the deep relaxation that takes place during a session. This type of relaxation helps aid general well-being and is particularly useful when treating stress and anxiety. It can also help ease tense muscles which can help improve physical pain and sleeping problems.
On an emotional and spiritual level, crystals can help enhance self-esteem, encourage clarity, and inspire a sense of peace and centeredness.
Anyone can enjoy these benefits; however, if you are skeptical about the process, you will naturally close yourself off. Because of this, having an open mind and no preconceptions or assumptions is key.
Some people believe healing crystals work like a magic wand and that everything will be better immediately. The truth is, there is no ‘magic’ behind crystal healing. Instead, they enhance what you are already working on. They are very interactive and rely on you being actively involved in your own spiritual journey. For this reason, it can be helpful to continue your work outside of crystal healing sessions.

Cupping is like a reverse massage – instead of pushing into the tissue, it pulls. Treatment involves placing cups onto the skin to create a vacuum which helps to increase blood and Qi flow, loosen fascia, stimulate healing and remove toxins.The detoxifying effect on skin and circulatory system is also significant, with a visible improvement in skin color. Cupping removes toxins and improves blood flow through the veins and arteries. Especially useful for athletes is cupping’s potential to relieve muscle spasms.Learn More
By releasing sonic energy, an ultrasonic cavitation handpiece allows for the disruption of cellular membranes in adipocytes, or fat cells. The high pressure of the ultrasound waves upon the adipocytes causes a collapse in the cells, and the fatty contents of the cells subsequently leak out into the spaces between cells.Learn More
