Put the sparkle back in your life with gem therapy
For over 5,000 years various precious stones have been valued not only for their beauty or rarity but also for their medicinal properties. Throughout Asia, medicines are, to this day, produced from finely powdered gem stones. The powders are microscopic crystals and, unlike chemical medications, do not dissolve in water, are not absorbed by the body and are eliminated by the digestive track. In energy theory, the blood circulating around the stomach and intestines, for example, is thought to be energised with the specific frequencies dictated by the colour of the gem powder. The blood then conveys the energy to other parts of the body.
While the medicinal use of gemstones was once enjoyed only by the wealthy, it is now also available via electronic gem-lamp therapy. The process works by inserting relevant gems into lamps which are said to gently pulse the gemstones' curative energies onto those parts of the body in need of treatment.
An Age-Old Treatment
Gem therapy is perhaps the first truly non-chemical energy medicine to be invented. To receive the benefits of gemstones, or dielectric energy, wearing gemstones close to the skin will have a gentle effect but may take longer to work than gem-lamp therapy.
How It Works
Electronic gem therapy lamps pulse energy at various frequency rates through high-quality gems, such as diamond, ruby, sapphire and emerald, thereby (it is said) stimulating and greatly amplifying the inherent vibrational healing power of the stones.
Targeting the parts of the body with electronic gem lamps can easily adjust these differences in energy levels, thus the reason for the success of the techniques.
Each gem is thought to possess specific healing properties, useful for non-serious (non-clinical) health concerns. For example, for mild anxiety and stress - use sapphire; for mild pain - use emerald and sapphire.
A gem elixir may not be as effective as gem lamp therapy but, for many, elixirs can be a worthwhile alternative. Having a set of beautiful healing stones and placing them on the relevant parts of the body is pleasurable.
Elixirs, like the gem stones themselves, are thought to work vibrationally in "healing" the affected parts of the body or, even, some claim, emotions.
The nine gems most commonly used for elixirs are, as follows:
How to Choose, and Use, Crystals and Gemstones
To be effective, gems have to be of a reasonable size, usually larger than those in jewelry. The nine gemstones together can be used to make a "rainbow" elixir, considered to energize the whole body.
However you wish to use your gemstones, enjoy them. Try electronic gem lamp therapy at home or by visiting a therapist who uses these lamps. Explore gem power and treat yourself to nature's sparkling energy!
