The power of Crystals

Crystal healing is an ancient practice of using natural gemstones and crystals to heal the body, stimulate the mind and activate the soul. Countless proofs have been found throughout history where the healing power of crystals has been mentioned in various cultures and civilizations. We have long known from Egyptians, Mayans, Sumerians and Indians that they adorned themselves with crystals to ward off evil and protect themselves from dark forces.

Crystals are natural minerals usually found beneath the Earth and formed through thousands of years of crystallization in various environmental conditions. Because crystals are inherently connected to nature, they have an incredible power to sense pain and unease in a human body and to heal the body and mind.
