More than ever, we are turning to alternative healing methods in this time of uncertainty. Crystal  Healing is a holistic healing tool used for self-healing and has been used for centuries. This specific modality is a complementary and natural approach, meaning it can be used alongside traditional medicine and has no side effects.

It is based on the belief that we are all made up of different energies and that when this becomes stagnant, unbalanced or blocked, it can cause illness. Besides being aesthetically beautiful, crystals’ energetic frequencies directly correlate to certain chakras, making crystal healing an extremely useful healing method. The crystals used during the session is determined by the healing that is needed.


Chakras and energy healing

Here is a quick guide on the 7 chakras:

First Chakra: Root Chakra

Physical identity, stability, grounding. A blocked root chakra can manifest as physical issues like arthritis, constipation, bladder & colon problems or emotionally through feeling insecure about finances or our basic needs and well-being.


Second Chakra: Sacral Chakra

Sexuality, pleasure, creativity. Issues with this chakra can be seen through problems with the associated organs like urinary tract infections, lower back pain and impotency. This chakra governs your emotions, your creativity, sensitivity, sexuality, intimacy, emotional well-being, and self-expression.


Third Chakra: Solar Plexus Chakra

Self-esteem, confidence, our personal power. A blocked solar plexus chakra can be experienced through digestive issues like ulcers, heartburn, eating disorders and indigestion. Also related to self-esteem and self-confidence.


Fourth Chakra: Heart Chakra

Love, compassion. Issues here can physically manifest through heart problems, asthma and weight issues. People with heart chakra blocks often put others first to their own detriment. It also represents our ability to love and connect to others. When out of alignment it can make us feel lonely, insecure and isolated.


Fifth Chakra: Throat Chakra

Communication. Voice and throat problems as well as any problems with everything surrounding that area such as the teeth, gums and mouth can indicate a blockage. Blocks or misalignment can also be seen through dominating conversations, gossiping, speaking without thinking and having trouble speaking your mind.


Sixth Chakra: Third Eye Chakra

Intuition, imagination. Blockages can manifest as headaches, issues with sight or concentration and hearing problems. Those who “know it all” or who are not in touch with their intuition may have a block.


Seventh Chakra: Crown Chakra

Awareness, intelligence. The crown chakra is linked to every other chakra (therefore every organ in this system) so it affects not just all of those organs, but also our brain and nervous system. It is considered the chakra of enlightenment and represents our connection to our life’s purpose and spirituality. A blocked crown chakra can be indicated by narrow-mindedness, scepticism or stubbornness.
