Can Crystals Really Help with Pain Relief?
Pain can be described as ‘an unpleasant sensation and emotional response to that sensation’.
One of the major problems with modern life and the ever-increasing longevity is the degree and frequency of the pain that people suffer.
Whether physical, emotional, or psychological, it affects just about everyone at different points in their lives.
Crystal healing can be described as the application of crystals to help the body’s energy system find a comfortable and healthy point of balance to improve the quality of life.
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.
The easiest way to work with a crystal is to use a quartz crystal point.
Hold it about 2 centimeters above the painful area with the crystal termination, or ‘point’, pointing down. 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.
Of course, some kinds of pain can take a little longer to heal.
For chronic pain, try this for ten to fifteen minutes daily for a couple of weeks and you should see improvement.
Just one session does not achieve healing from crystals, though. Especially when you are suffering from chronic pain.
Whatever is causing you to experience pain will continue to be present in your body, so you will need to keep applying the crystal healing techniques.
How often depends entirely on you and how your body responds to your crystals.

Two Important Tips to Boost Pain Relief with Crystals
There are two ways to use crystals in treating pain or chronic illness, and that’s through jewelry and meditative work.
1) Wear your crystals as jewelry.
Sit with the piece of crystal jewelry in your hand and ask it to work on the pain on your body that you need it to.
Crystals have many purposes, and you should direct their energy properly to a specific point so as not to dilute their powers.
Wear your crystal jewelry all throughout the day and take it off regularly for cleansing and recharging. Cleansing and clearing it can be as easy as putting it next to a Quartz crystal.
You can also leave certain crystals under the sunlight or moonlight for a cycle. Just be careful about this because some crystals lose their color when exposed to direct light.
If you’re wearing energy or immune boosting crystals, be sure to wear them only for short periods of time. They can make you feel overloaded, hyperactive, or irritable.
How long is too long depends on you and your own energy levels. If you feel overloaded, or like your skin is tight and stretched out, just take it off.
Any crystal jewelry is beneficial. But the closer it is to the source of the pain, the more effective it will be.
Necklaces are best for beating stress or helping with immune conditions. Anklets are excellent for painful legs and feet.
Rings are also very effective when you put them on your ring finger because it has a direct link to your heart. This boosts the blood flow to the heart and to the rest of the body.
2) Meditate with your crystals.
Once you’ve set your intentions on your crystal, sit down and hold it, or place it on the part of your body that needs its attention.
You can also choose to lie on your back if this is more comfortable for you. Even if you cannot meditate, just sitting quietly and calmly can work wonders on your body, mind, and spirit.
Pain is not only uncomfortable. It also triggers physical and emotional responses that hinder or slow down healing, or in the case of chronic pain, decrease your quality of life.
Painkillers help but they can also cause damage if they are used for too long. Crystals relieve the pain that you are feeling without causing harm to your vital organs.
Crystals vibrate, and these vibrations work to alleviate pain and allow the body to heal.
You need to find the right crystal to help you with the pain, though, because not all crystals vibrate at the same rate or work the same way on relieving the pain.
Some have a higher vibration rate while others are low or moderate.
