Crystal Therapy for Animals
What is Crystal Therapy and how can it help my animal?
Crystals have been used for thousands of years as a method for healing a range of ailments for both animals and humans.
An animals body has 7 chakras (or energy points), all crystals have a charge which when positioned correctly help the body's natural energy flow to be restored. When the body is suffering injury or disease its normal energy flow is disrupted - the crystals help to resolve this, thus facilitating the body to heal itself.
As with other therapies such as acupuncture and shiatsu there are specific points throughout the body where different ailments can best be treated. For instance an animals throat chakra influences: respiratory system, lungs, forelegs, paws and mouth.
What Crystals are there for my animal?
There are lots of different Crystals (and gems) that can be used. These include the following:
- Aventurine - show nerves and fear
- Calcite - skeletal system
- Emerald - nervousness and digestion
- Gold - for treating depression
- Herkimer diamond - stress
- plus many more..........!
Caring for Crystals
It is important that crystals are cared for properly, with regular cleansing, re-nourishing and rebalancing. To do this there are a variety of options including:
- Soaking in salt water (preferably sea salt)
- Place in the moonlight
- Place in direct sunlight (the UV rays help to recharge)
How can you use crystals with your animal?
You could place in your pet's basket (obviously locating so as not to cause any discomfort when your pet lays down!), or hang from your horse's headcollar or rug. You can hold in your hand and locate your hand near the appropriate chakra. As with many therapies (including aromatherapy), your animal will let you know if they're finding it of benefit (symptoms or ailment improves) or if it's causing discomfort (by tail swishing, ears back, etc). Sometimes the crystals can have an intense effect which is only tolerable in short doses - especially to begin with, a qualified therapist will recognise these signs and use the most appropriate crystals.
Please remember that as with any complementary therapy - it should not be used to replace qualified Veterinary advice, diagnosis and treatment.
