Crystals that offer support to sufferers of Chronic Pain

Many of us will have to deal with pain over the course of our lives at some point, but sadly, for many it develops in to Chronic pain, a daily  constant presence which never goes away. Pain comes in so many forms, from severe permanent and totally debilitating pain resulting in daily struggles, undoubtedly affecting both body and mind, down to short lived or minor pain which can be more be easily lived with, but still affects mood and our general enjoyment for life.

Those suffering with long term pain often turn to the energetic properties of healing crystal stones to compliment traditional medicine and support their ability to cope with daily life and deal with the relentless pain. Far from being a new age idea, crystal healing has been practiced by healers, holy people and shamans throughout history for thousands of years by successfully incorporating crystals into their spiritual and healing practices.

Science has proven that locked within each object on earth there is energy and this is of course true for crystals as well, their healing powers come from the energy and vibration that they hold within. Our physical bodies also have an energy and is it this that crystals interact with to hopefully provide some relief. Crystals can align the chakras, unblock and balance energies running through the meridians (the energetic pathways through the body) and cleanse auras. The healing vibrations of crystals are said to soothe tired muscles, strengthen the physical body, calm emotions and bring balance to a nervous system coping with many stresses and strains. This is what we'll focus on with this top ten run down of crystals for pain.
