Healers and Sharmans have known for centuries the curative and restorative properties of gems and crystals. Our cells interact with electromagnetic fields and can absorb energy from gems and crystals. Crystals and gems are piezoelectric, which means they hold energy, and they generate a tiny electric voltage.
Crystals are millions of years old and were formed during the earliest parts of the Earth’s formation. Crystals emit a vibratory frequency. Crystals have a similar wavelength to the human body and it is believed that they can enhance the body’s own natural healing process. Crystal healing as a modality harnesses the energetic properties of crystals to influence the client’s energy field.
The use of crystals in beauty dates back as far as the 7th Century in China, where the skin was scraped to promote oxygenation and regeneration. Crystals can aid in the reduction of puffiness around the eyes and promote lymphatic draining as well as tightening of pores.
Certain types of crystals have the ability to be warmed and also cooled providing unique benefits to the skin. When used in a facial under the correct pressure they can release tight fascia, allowing the skin to detox and radiantly glow. Myofascia are released easily when the skin is warmed. Hence why we warm the stones to around 50 degrees. The heat generated relaxes the myofascia and muscles allowing neck tension to be released and for the warmth to increase circulation. When the fascia is over used it folds in on itself causing the formation of wrinkles.
Skin after crystal therapy has an acceleration of both blood and lymph as the circulation is increased, allowing the skin to detoxify. Muscles are relaxed and nutrients are brought to the skin. In a crystal treatment a blend of hot and cold therapy is used for its healing abilities on the skin.
