Crystals have been in use for hundreds of years for a variety of purposes. Their physiological and spiritual benefits have made them quite popular with healers and regular people alike.
Take crystal massage wands, for example. Their therapeutic and healing properties have made them the go-to choice for a lot of people.
If you have ever wondered how to use crystal massage wands, I make things clear in this easy guide. But before I get to that, let’s first take a look at what crystal massage wands are and why they are so important in the world of healing.
What Is A Crystal Massage Wand?
Crystals come in all shapes and sizes. The ones that have a more cylindrical shape to them are usually known as crystal wands. But these, too, can differ in terms of length, girth, surface texture, and roundness at the tips.
Also, they are made of a variety of materials. For example, you can get clear quartz crystal wands, black obsidian wands, amethyst crystal wands, rose quartz crystal wands, and many other types.
Crystal wands are powerful objects since they possess tremendous healing energies. In fact, since they emerge out of the Earth most of the time, practitioners say that they serve as channels for our planet’s natural healing energy.
How To Use Crystal Massage Wands
Since different types of crystal massage wands have different types of healing energies, they can be used for a variety of purposes. And each use case has a different set of steps that you need to follow.
Therefore, it’s important to learn how to use crystal massage wands properly. Below, we mention some of the most common use cases and their respective steps.
1) To Relieve Pain And Relax
People usually get massages to get relief from pain and experience deep relaxation. A massage coupled with crystal massage wands can augment this experience to a whole another level.
The wands are great at extracting stale energy out of the system and infusing fresh energy. This allows for much faster pain relief and much deeper relaxation.
You can use an amethyst crystal wand or a clear quartz crystal wand for this purpose. For an effective healing massage, you can follow these steps:
- Gently massage the areas of the body where you experience pain. Use the rounded end of the wand for this purpose.
- Massage the body parts slowly in a circular motion. Make sure you apply the right amount of pressure. Too little, and the massage won’t be that effective. Too much, and things will get even more painful.
- The massage will help clear out toxins and improve blood circulation in the affected area. It will also help remove stale energy from the body. This twin-effect of a crystal massage wand makes it ideal for pain relief and relaxation.
I personally suffer from migraines, so I always keep amethyst crystal massage wands in the fridge, ready to combat an attack. Applied to my temples to massage the area, they provide great relief.
2) To Release Tension And Treat Illness
Sometimes, our muscles and joints can become stiff due to over-exertion. Also, energy can get stuck at various places throughout the energy body. This can cause a lot of tension and even illnesses to manifest.
To address these issues, you can use a rose quartz crystal wand, jasper wand or tigers eye wand. Let’s see how you can do so.
- Identify the areas of the body where you experience stiffness or tension. Form an intention in your mind that you want to heal these areas.
- Then use the pointed end of the crystal wand and apply gentle pressure on those areas. You can also apply pressure on the common pressure points of the body, such as the neck, shoulders, back, wrist point, between the thumb and forefinger, and so on. These help release stress and promote healing.
- The stimulation of the pressure points using the pointed end of thy crystal wands can also help in healing various illnesses. However, you will need to identify the right pressure points for various organs and body parts. This information is quite easily available online.
3) For A Face Massage
This is also one of the most common uses of crystal wands. In fact, many people first start learning how to use crystal massage wands because they want to keep their facial skin healthy and youthful.
There are many crystal facial wands that are designed for this specific purpose. We can say that they are a sub-category of massage wands. Rose quartz crystal is perhaps the best one to use for this purpose. Let’s see the steps involved.
- Gently place the rounded end of the crystal wand above your eyebrows and start moving it towards your temples. Repeat this a few times.
- Next, place the rounded end of the crystal wand at the inner corner of each eye. Then, move the wand towards the temple. This will help reduce any puffiness you might have under your eyes.
- Then massage your cheeks in an outward motion. Meaning, start from the side of the nose and move the wand towards your ears.
- Next, massage the sides of your face (under each temple). Move your wand from the temple to the bottom of your face (level with your lower ear). This will especially help with the draining of your lymphatic system. It will also promote better blood flow to your facial skin.
4) To Treat The Energy Body
Finally, we come to the energy body. If you’re not already aware, the energy body is the subtle energy field that permeates your physical body and also extends outside of it.
It is made up of various energy channels and energy centres (known as chakras). The state of your energy body dictates your health and well-being. As such, it’s important to pay attention to it and make sure you treat it from time to time.
You can use a black obsidian wand or a clear quartz for this purpose. Let’s see the steps involved.
- Hold the wand in your hand with the rounded end towards the bottom. Form an intention in your mind to clean the energy body.
- Then, wave the wand throughout the body without actually touching it to the skin. Make sure you cover the front as well as the sides of the body.
- Then, hold the crystal wand over each chakra and wave the wand in a counter-clockwise direction. This will remove negative energies from the chakras.
- Next, point the pointed end of the wand towards each chakra and wave it in a clockwise direction. This will infuse fresh cosmic energies into the chakras.
- You may feel certain physical or emotional sensations during this session. Fear not, this is just the body getting rid of stuck, blocked, or negative energies from your body. And you will feel renewed in no time at all.
Crystal massage wands are a great wellbeing tool – they are also perfect for helping to remove negative energy from the body and realign your chakras.
