The word crystals come from the Greek words – 'Krystallos' and 'Kryos', meaning 'ice' and 'icy cold, respectively. Crystals are living bodies. They listen to you, heal you and fill you with positive energy, absorbing all the negativity. They have been considered to be powerful healing tools since eras. They also boost your spiritual healing power. Crystals can help with physical, emotional, spiritual and financial health. They are alive as they are filled with energy and are conductors of energy. They are now being used in modern applications in watches, radios, and numerous modern medical devices.
The Crystal Healing idea was first popularized in the West in the 1930s when famous American trancepsychic, Edgar Cayce, claimed that his visions revealed that, before Atlantis sunk beneath the waves, crystals were used as a source of energy that could even power airships.
The most popular crystals are those from the quartz family and are generally imported from Brazil, Arizona and Australia. Most are comparatively inexpensive and can be purchased by mail order, in "New Age" shops, some health shops and jewellers we've even seen them on sale in Boots!

By placing crystals on these chakras areas the healing effect of our system is boosted to bring better health and well being.
