Crystal healing is believed to date back as far as 6,000 years ago, to the time of Sumerians in Mesopotamia. It is also believed that ancient Egyptians were some of the first to practice crystal healing. Today, crystal healing is predominantly based on traditional concepts in Asian cultures where some of the people believed in life-energy (chi or qi). Chakras, a part of modern crystal healing, also date back to traditional Asian cultures through Buddhism and Hinduism. These are said to connect the physical and supernatural elements of the body.
Crystals are used in holistic medicine to heal the body and cleanse the environment around us. Practitioners who use crystals believe that crystals contain forces and energies. Over time, they need to be cleansed of any unwanted energies so they can be used to their full potential. You can find crystals at new age stores, through a holistic practitioner, and online.
Therapists will usually place crystals on the part of the body that is suffering from a certain ailment and will use a crystal that is supposed to cure or alleviate that symptom. If you are suffering from a headache a therapist may put a crystal that alleviates tension on or around your forehead.
