How To Use Crystals For Pain Relief?

Pain has a serious and damaging effect on your quality of life, and crystals can be highly effective in removing pain. Crystals can help ease, handle, or treat pain in several ways. They can work directly on the pain, and certain crystals can generally help particular areas of the body.

  1. The easiest way to work with a crystal is to use a quartz crystal point.

  2. Hold it about 2 centimeters above the painful area with the crystal termination, or ‘point’ pointing down.

  3. Move the crystal slowly in clockwise circles over the pain.

Don’t be concerned if the pain gets a little worse when you do this. Sometimes the pain gets worse before it gets better. But after a short time, you should see a rapid improvement. For chronic pain, try this for ten to fifteen minutes daily for a couple of weeks and you should see improvement. And of course, some kinds of pain can take a little longer to heal.
