If the holidays have you a little stressed out, new reports indicate that crystal therapy might be a good alternative treatment. This natural therapy may have a wide range of benefits, from aiding relaxation to being an alternative healing therapy.
The New York Times recently drew readers’ attention to how crystals can be used for healing. Some use warmed jade as part of a body massage. Others, particularly in Asia, reportedly use crystal "wands" to promote healthy skin and positive energy.
Crystal therapy has even made its way to Hollywood, according to InStyle magazine. Sienna Miller reportedly enjoys a massage by Neom Organics because it incorporates crystal therapy into a massage treatment that uses organic products along with aromatherapy practices.
According to the site peacefulmind.com, crystals can be used for a range of therapeutic purposes. They are believed to have a certain kind of power, and this is then transferred to the sick individual. He or she is "healed" by the crystal’s energy.
Energy in a crystal can be replenished when the object is cleaned. For example, the news source explains that to "clean" agate, it must be rinsed and "cleared" under warm water and placed in the sun to absorb this energy.
