Precious stones have surprising powers, they help your body and mind thanks to their vibrations and each has a particular healing power that is significant to that stone. It is therefore important to take care when choosing your stone and to research its effect! For example the Rose Quartz stone is known best for its healing powers after a break up.
Lithotherapy – What is it?
To put it simply, lithotherapy is a mix of ancestral techniques which use both stones (hot stone massage) and chromotherapy (that uses colours) to heal a wounded body and mind. Lithotherapy works on the idea that all stones emit a vibration and an energy and this energy is then absorbed into your body which then has healing powers.
How does Lithotherapy work?
In order to have the best effect, the stones can be worn as jewellery – necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings or can be arranged in a room in its original form. The influence of the stone changes depending on factors such as its size – the bigger the stone the bigger the vibrations and therefore it’ll have a better healing power.
The receptivity of the body that the stone is in contact with changes depending on the levels of minerals in the organism. Iron, magnesium, potassium are just a few of the minerals that are in the human body and that are incredibly sensitive and responsive to the minerals that are present outside the body/in the stones.
