The practice of placing gemstones and/or crystals on or around the body to draw out negative energy, promoting balance and healing within the body on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.
While there is limited scientific research in the field of crystal therapy, crystals and gemstones have been used for thousands of years for protection and healing. The Ancient Sumerians and Egyptians were known to adorn themselves with crystals thought to ward off illness and negative energy.
Crystal Therapy is not intended to be an alternative to conventional medicine, but rather an enhancement.
