Crystals Are a Chakra’s Best Friend: What You Need to Know About Crystal-Bed Natural Healing

Natural healing—healing that involves mindfulness of your body's needs rather than a reliance on pre-made medicines from a pharmacy—can be done in all kinds of ways, from essential oils to massage therapy to mindfulness meditation. However, essential healing happens first inside the body through the relocation and channeling of energy through the centers of the body (commonly known as the seven chakras). So if you're curious about a natural way of healing that involves relaxation and the natural healing abilities of crystal, then here's what you need to know about crystal-bed natural healing.

What is it?

Crystal-bed natural healing was invented by a Brazilian man by the moniker "John of God" (whose full name is Joao Texiera de Faria) who uses the healing powers of crystals in combinations with your body's chakras to heal malaise caused by all sorts of stressers and sources. This type of healing claims to help restore your natural energies, cleanse your body of all manner of impurities, and balance your spiritual, mental, and physical well-being so that your body, mind, and soul work together in the way they should without any blockages along your chakras' natural paths.

How does it work?

The crystal bed is deceptively simple in its design; seven carefully cut quartz crystals are suspended over a massage table. The person being cleansed lies down on the table, and the crystals are each aligned over one of your body's seven chakras. Differently colored lights are shone through the crystals at different rates, pulsing gently onto the chakras below. These different rhythms aid in the cleansing process, allowing your chakras to clear and balance themselves. Throughout this process, you have a covering on your eyes so that you aren't blinded by the light and can relax deeply (even to the point of falling asleep). This type of healing can help reduce aches and pains all over your body, including lower back pain, helping your body function better.

Are there any side effects?

Like with most natural healing practices, there aren't any side effects to healing in a crystal bed. There is a chance that you may feel slightly sleepy, woozy, or disoriented after the session, but that's only natural after physically and mentally relaxing, healing, and rejuvenating for a long period of time. So if you're fed up with your bottles upon bottles of prescription medications, endless doctor visits, and countless supplements that do nothing to help ease your aches, pains, and malaise, then a session or two of crystal-bed natural healing might just finally give you the boost you need to greater physical, mental, and spiritual wellness.
