The Benefits of Gemstone Therapy
Gemstone Therapy has been around for centuries and has now gone mainstream. It’s an alternative medical technique that involves placing gemstones on the body to draw out negative energy, heal various ailments, and more. The energies from crystals and gemstones amplify our energy, picking up and transmitting a specific wavelength to the body, which in turn transforms them into chemical sand elemental particles that can be used to better function on both the physical and emotional level.
“We live in a world of energy problems and we need an energy solution,” says Jennifer Marcenelle, a Board-Certified Holistic Nurse, certified Gemstone and Diamond Therapy Associate Practitioner, and CEO of Burn Bright Today. “As far as I know, Gemstone and Diamond Therapy is by far the most cutting-edge, all-natural, no side effect technology available in the world today.” Here, she answers some of the most common questions about Gemstone Therapy, its benefits, and more.
What is gemstone therapy and how long has it been around?
Gemstones are high-vibration crystals that carry their own unique healing energies. When certain high-vibration crystals are shaped into a rounded or spherical shape, they can be worn on the body or placed in the aura to provide healing therapy. The healing powers of gemstones work with the energetic anatomy and the thoughts, memories, and emotions of a person’s being—often where the cause of many illnesses and stressors are rooted.
It’s not a new practice—in fact, there is evidence that the healing power of gemstones was recognized as far back as the Greek and Egyptian civilizations, as well as in the Vedic period in India. According to online research, archaeologists discovered evidence of systematic mining for gemstones in Egypt more than 7,000 years ago, as well as in Afghanistan’s Oxus Valley.
The Vedas, a large body of religious texts originating in ancient India, are acknowledged as the original “authority” on gems with their description, potencies, and prescriptions for effective use. According to the Vedas, “imbalances could be set right either by wearing gems against one’s skin or using them as an ingredient to make medicines and potions to be taken internally.”
Another interesting fact: even the gems worn by royalty over the years were not merely used for decoration. Gemstones adorned the crowns of kings and queens primarily for their hidden strengths, and they were believed to be capable of influencing the powers of nature and wealth.
Why is everyone obsessed with crystals all of a sudden?
Recently, The New York Times did an entire exposé on the healing capabilities of crystals—not just one piece but nine articles in 12 months. Upscale hotels and spas in California have long offered crystal therapies. Walk down the streets of NYC today and you’ll be bombarded with ads for gemstone beauty treatments. Now, thanks to celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Adele, Victoria Beckham and Princess Kate, crystal healing went from a new age curiosity to a mainstream sensation. The real reason it’s so popular? Because Gemstone Therapy works.
How is Gemstone Therapy being incorporated into people’s daily lives, spa treatments, etc.?
In light of today’s crystal craze, Gemstone Therapy is available in many new and innovative ways. Crystal clusters are now in every corner of all the best spas, while high-quality gemstone spheres are being used in facials and aesthetic treatments. The healing energies of the gemstones are available in sprays to clean and clear the aura before a spa treatment, and nourish and protect the aura during and after select spa treatments. Homeopathic gemstone sprays are now widely available for home use and personal support between those luxurious spa treatments.
What are some of the benefits of Gemstone Therapy?
The therapeutic benefits of gemstone energies run far and wide—there’s a reason why it’s been around for centuries. Gemstone Therapy can provide relief from a wide range of mental, physical, and spiritual challenges. From helping with anxiety and depression to chronic and acute pain, sprains, and even skin rashes and disorders, Gemstone Therapy energizes the body and mind, decreases blood pressure and inflammation, frees blocked emotions, reduces toxins, minimizes stress and attracts positive energy.
Practitioners of this alternative therapy know that gemstones carry certain vibrations which, when placed within an individual’s aura, have the effect of altering it. It’s believed that the human aura contains nine colors, and any deficiency or excess of these colors, according to the theory and practice, can upset the human body’s energy balance, leading to illness. Gemstones help you heal by restoring the balance to the original composition of these nine colors. The balance and restoration of these colors are a fundamental and absolutely necessary part of health and wellness.
Gemstone Therapy has been around for centuries, it works, and is widely available for every home. It’s time for these amazing healing tools to become a part of our personal commitment for health and wellness. Gemstone Therapy is here to stay—and in a BIG way.
