Most people use crystals every day without knowing it!
Crystals have been used as far back as 6000 years to the time of the ancient Sumerians of Mesopotamia. Romans, the Chinese, Indians, Ancient Greeks, Egyptians and Japanese have used them to promote healing and enlightenment.
A simple example is Quartz. Quartz is used in transistors, all computer chips, watches, optical filters, telephones and advanced electronic systems. Crystals transmit, move, clear and send energy. Energy is Qi and Qi is life force. When we have stagnation in our Qi that is when illness and dis-ease creep in. Using meridians and chakra points crystals can be laid in specific patterns to help assist in creating a positive flow of energy throughout and surrounding your body. They can clear stagnation/blockages in the organs attached to the meridians and the energy pathways returning mind, body, spirit and environment back into harmony and balance.
The types of crystals used and the positioning of them will depend on what the patient is seeking support for. This could range from a physical concern to more emotional or spiritual concerns.
