Healing Crystals: Finding the Right Crystal For Your Ailment
Updated: Nov 2, 2022
First of all, what is a crystal?
Crystals are incredible rock formations that represent nature's organization. In Lamen's terms, a crystal is formed when atoms come together in an organized manner with a repeating pattern. They can be found in a number of different shapes & sizes - what they are made of determines how they are formed. For example, salt crystals form cube-shaped crystals. Some elements can even create more than one shape!

Crystals have a wide variety of functions.
Many of the first radios ever invented used crystals to transmit radio waves. Some watches, such as quartz watches, still use crystals today. Their most common application is in jewelry. They have always been seen as something of beauty & are often placed with diamonds or other stones - even today! Another popular way to use crystals is in alternative medicine for physical & mental healing.
What is crystal healing?
Crystal healing has been used since ancient times & has seen an increase in popularity recently. Ancient Egyptian, Chinese, & Greek civilizations are only a few that have been recorded using crystals for healing.
Today crystals are used in alternative medicine - medical treatments that are used other than mainstream or traditional therapies. They are used for physical & emotional benefits, including disease prevention & the cure of ailments.
Crystal healing is energy based.
The practice of crystal healing is rooted in the belief that we are all made of energies & when they become stagnant, unbalanced, or blocked, it can cause illness. Crystals enable positive, healing energy to flow into the body, while negative, disease-causing energy flows out. The crystals themselves help to unlock, balance, & direct energy to where it is most needed, supporting the body to heal in a therapeutic way. Different crystals have different energies. You can choose which crystals best suit your ailment or use them as a preventative measure.
Wearing crystals is one way holistic therapists suggest to use crystals.
There are a number of different ways holistic therapists use crystals in healing sessions. The most common way for a therapist to use them is for the patient to lie down & place the crystals on or around the affected areas. They type of crystal & the way it is positioned on your body will have different affects. However, crystals are extremely powerful & merely touching them can allow you to feel their energies. Wearing crystals in the form of jewelry is an easy way to use them at home & keep them with you throughout the day.
This is not a scientifically based healing practice.
It is worth noting that this is not a scientifically based healing practice. There is not scientific evidence to support it. Here at Saul & Saul Designs we use crystal healing as a supportive method to modern practices, rather than a substitute.
