How to Use Healing Crystals on Your Body For Beginners

Using Healing Crystals and Stones

It's easy to become crystal obsessed. 


After all, what’s not to love? They’re sparkly and fascinating and you can use crystals on your body. 


There is literally a crystal for everything! So much so that oftentimes my clients become overwhelmed.


They aren’t sure which crystal to pick, and further, they aren’t sure how to use the crystals once they take them home.

I oftentimes hear, “I like crystals but don’t know what to DO with them.”


Sound familiar? Fear not! This blog will take you step-by-step through laying on of crystals on your body.


You’ll learn how to place crystals on your body and which crystals are made for what purpose and body part.

Why place crystals on your body?


laying stones on body

Well, scientifically crystals have a very stable structure; crystals are actually one of the most ordered structures on Earth.


Because of their remarkable order, they emit stable energy.


This is why crystals are used in clocks and computer chips!


By laying crystals on and around our body (or wearing them in jewelry) we allow the body’s energetic frequency to become entrained by the crystal’s frequency.


Simply put, the energetic frequency of the crystal overpowers our own, making our energy less chaotic, and more ordered.

So, how to begin?


The colors and frequency of crystals correspond to the body’s chakra system; it is almost foolproof and there really is no way to get it wrong.


The most important rule is always to start and end with the chakra at the feet (Earth Star Chakra); the crystals at your feet will be the first crystal placed and the last crystal removed.


Starting at the feet ensures that you remain grounded through your session, allowing you to feel more comfortable and less buzzy.

Moving Through Your Chakras


From the Earth Star Chakra move upwards from the Root Chakra to the Crown Chakra, placing a corresponding crystal.


Keep in mind, you don’t need to place crystals on your body at every chakra point.


If you’re feeling a blockage at the throat, for example, you can ground at your feet and place a piece of blue kyanite at your throat.


It doesn’t hurt, however, to place a crystal at each chakra point.

Crystals & Chakras


Not sure where to get started?

You can choose to place a crystal or crystals at each chakra point or place where you feel they are most needed.


Take a few deep, centering breaths, call yourself into the present time, and listen to your intuition.


It will not steer you wrong!


Remember, however, to always ground yourself with a crystal at your feet no matter what other crystals you are using.


Again, this crystal is the first you will place and the last you will remove.


Relax and allow the crystals to penetrate your energetic and emotional bodies.


Perhaps listen to relaxing music or simply focus on your breathing and pay attention to what you feel and what thoughts come up.


Keep a journal handy to record your experiences. Your experience can vary by day, by the hour, and by crystal used.

If you feel “buzzy” or “uneasy”


If you feel uneasy with the crystals on your body, remove them!


Laying on of Stones should not be uncomfortable.


Just please remember to remove the crystals at your feet last!


If you’re a crystal beginner, start off with five or ten minutes of crystal healing at a time, and work up from there.


Do what feels right, and never force it!

Types of Crystals


There are hundreds of different crystals and dozens of choices that correspond to each chakra on your body.  


Below find a few crystal “families” and the correspondences.


Each family comes in a variety of colors that correspond to each chakra.


  • Quartz is a master healer. It magnifies energy, clears and cleanses. Amethyst and citrine are both members of the quartz family.


  • Calcite brings movement and flow where there is physical stagnation.


  • Tourmaline deals with the emotional body and heart issues.


  • Fluorite brings balance and order. Helps mind issues. Absorbs and neutralizes harmful and negative energy.


I hope this blog helps introduce laying on of crystals on your body to you.


Remember to always follow your intuition; your body and your higher-self knows what crystals are best where.


Try not to second guess yourself, relax, and approach each healing without attachment and with curiosity.
