Crystal Healing in Healthcare

Updated: May 8

As an integrative oncology healthcare practitioner and specialist physiotherapist I love to combine clinical methods with holistic techniques to offer my patients a well-rounded and truly transformational experience. One aspect of metaphysical support I love to introduce is crystal healing – as I have found crystals to be incredibly useful on my own healing journey and have seen how much they have helped others through my holistic practice, too.

In this article I’ll share the basic foundations of crystal healing and explain how you can use the energy of crystals in your daily life to help you feel your best and achieve your goals.

What are crystals?

Crystals come directly from the earth – and are made up of varying combinations of minerals to give them different properties including stunning colours, textures and shapes. Each crystal has a different frequency and vibration, corresponding to different parts of the body and our emotional health to bring harmony and balance.

How does crystal healing work?

There’s no hard scientific evidence that explains how crystals work to help heal body and mind – but that’s the thing – crystal healing needs to be felt to be understood. In the absence of studies there is plenty of anecdotal evidence indicating the benefits of crystals for a wide variety of physical and mental difficulties. People commonly use crystals for emotional wellbeing – but they can also be used for physical illnesses and ailments, too.

One of the wonderful things about crystals is how easy they are to use – in fact, anybody can harness their healing benefits. But first, you need to choose your crystal and learn how to care for them properly to maximise their properties.

How to choose your crystals

Choosing crystals really is an intuitive process – it’s less about you choosing the right crystal, and more about the right crystal choosing you!

I recommend choosing crystals in person – that way you can really feel their energy and use touch and visual cues to decide which one is right for you. They have different ways of attracting us – usually you’ll be drawn to a specific crystal right away. If you do need to source your crystals online, though, trust that the right one has found its way to you!

If you are looking to use crystal therapy for a specific illness or difficulty you are facing, you might like to take a look at online guides to see which crystal is best suited to your needs. Each crystal has corresponding properties and specialist areas – for example, Labradorite relives anxiety and stress, whilst Citrine helps with purification and abundance and Amethyst improves immune function, hormonal health and relieves grief.

Some good all-rounders everybody can benefit from include:

Clear Quartz: To heighten psychic abilities and intuition, a master healer. Carry it with you on your person for balance and cleansing.

Rose Quartz: The crystal of unconditional love – for yourself and others.

Selenite: A master cleanser and protector. You can use Selenite to cleanse your other crystals – but be careful not to get it wet, as it will damage easily if it comes into contact with water.

Obsidian: For protection and grounding – this is a powerful crystal, especially when worn on your person.

You don’t need to buy crystals in their raw format for them to be effective. Crystals now come in many different forms, shapes and sizes – you can wear them as bracelets or jewellery, incorporate them into your daily routine through water infusion, bathing and candles, or buy wands and other tools to cleanse and balance your space. It’s also important to be sure you’re choosing genuine and ethically sourced crystals.

To get started, choose one or two crystals that resonate with you and begin to collect additional ones as and when they are needed. If you’re anything like me, you’ll soon have quite the collection!

Cleansing and caring for your crystals

In order for you to get the most out of your crystals, it’s important to take care of them well. This doesn’t require a huge amount of effort – but there are a few important things to remember when using and looking after crystals for healing:

Always cleanse before and after each use: This is important especially if other people have handled your crystals. Be sure to periodically ‘cleanse’ them energetically or using other methods (detailed below) and before using them.

Recharge under the light of the moon: The full moon harnesses powerful energy which can be used to ‘charge up’ the healing properties of your crystals. To bathe them in moonlight, simply place your crystals on a plate or cloth in full view of the full moon overnight, ideally on the night when the moon is at its fullest.

Use water or other cleansing tools: Crystals can be cleansed physically or energetically using smoke (from sage, incense or Palo Santo) or with water – but take care when using water, as it can erode certain types of crystals. Never use soap or harsh detergents, as this can damage your crystals.
