Although crystal healing it often associated with the New Age movement which grew in popularity during the 1970's, the practice of using crystals for healing and wellbeing actually dates back thousands of years. Crystals were used by the Ancient Sumerians as far back as 4000 BC and in Ancient Egypt were widely used for health and protection.
Today as well as being used for spiritual healing, crystals are used to reduce stress, promote calmness and tranquility and to improve focus and mental wellbeing. They're also used in conjunction with meditation and reiki.
