Crystal Healing Techniques

Considering the multitude of crystal healing techniques available to you for healing with crystals, my favoured technique remain crystal healing layouts.

I find these body layouts to be simple, easy and effective also making them ideal to use in conjunction with other healing modalities.

As you already know ...

Any disharmony that your aura collects from the auric fields around you (personal or environmental) can be trapped and retained in your etheric body (first layer of your aura) which contains all the energies that are released through your chakras, in turn these disharmonious energies can manifest as dis-ease or illness in your physical body.

Crystal Healing Layouts

When you surround the body of a person being healed or yourself with healing crystals it is called a crystal layout or net.


It is imperative that you first learn to heal yourself so as to become a crystal clear channel for these messengers of light. The "Know & Heal Yourself Crystal Healing Course" is simply laid out and will give you the grounding, knowledge and confidence required to not only heal yourself but to go on to healing others with your talent if you so choose.

When you use crystal healing layouts, you set up a very specific and complex electromagnetic force field (energy field) which acts to repolarize any fields that are misaligned by drawing out and adding the necessary energy vibrations to compensate for the imbalances.

Your body's energy fields will re-align and your chakras will be cleared, balanced and opened which aids healing, promotes the overall feeling of well being and can prevent illness and dis-ease from manifesting in your body.

The crystal layout is one of the crystal healing techniques that changes slightly when you work on someone else, you will place the healing gemstones the same way you would do for yourself, however you, the healer, will also smooth out and re-direct the electromagnetic energy given of by the stones with your hands.

In my experience I have found that using my left hand to smooth the energy field and my right hand to direct the energy has worked best but it is very important to remember that we are all different - so do what works for you.

Your Power Hand

Finding your power hand is very helpful as your power hand is often an indicant or sensor for the need of a healing, or to help find the problem area on the body that needs healing.

Should your power hand be your right hand it means that:

  • Your Right Hand is positively charged and sends or gives energy. It emits the energy that "makes things happen".
  • Your Left hand is negatively charged, and receives energy. It emits the energy that "allows things to happen".

Should your power hand be your left hand it means that:

  • Your Left Hand is positively charged and sends or gives energy. It emits the energy that "makes things happen".
  • Your Right hand is negatively charged, and receives energy. It emits the energy that "allows things to happen".

This is fully discussed including the relevant exercises to help you determine which is your power hand in "The Power of Quartz - Crystal Healing Course".

Balancing the Body with Crystals

Quartz Balancing Lay-Out


These crystal healing layouts are very simple and easy to use. I would suggest that you drink lots of water after doing a self treatment as these techniques also has a detox affect on the body.

This is one of the crystal healing techniques I use very often and you will require seven clear quartz crystals about the same size and weight, either natural or tumbled.

Lie down and place a crystal on each of the seven major chakra centres. If a crystal rolls to a different position three times, leave it where it is. It is likely the body is moving it where it needs to be.

You will find that some of the crystals will feel very heavy, like they are sinking into your skin, others will be so light that you aren't sure they are still there, others may feel very cold, while others extremely warm or even electric.

You may also feel like you are floating or receive inner visions of color or patterns.

Each individual is different. Leave the stones in place for at least three or four minutes. The body will find its own balance.

When using any one of the crystal healing techniques, always trust your intuition as far as which gemstones to use whether you are attracted to them because of shape, size, color, etc.

Stress Release and Energizing the Body with Crystals

Stress Release and Energizing Crystal Layout

This is an excellent layout to use for stress release in our fast paced society. I have used this layout with success on people from all walks of life starting from the executive to the stay at home mom with the pressures of raising a family.

I have found this to be one of the best crystal healing techniques for stress release.

You will need seven clear quartz crystal points.

This time do not place them on the body, rather place them on the floor or mat around your body pointing outward,

  • one above your head,
  • one below your feet,
  • at your shoulders on either side
  • and at your knees on either side.

Lie still for three or four minutes.

This will release stress.

Then turn the points inwards to recharge and energize the chakra centres. Lie still for another three or four minutes.

Aligning and Balancing the Chakras with Crystals


In the two Crystal Healing Courses available from HJE Energy Healing School I discuss many more crystal healing techniques and layouts for you to work with.

Many healers agree that one of the most popular crystal healing techniques is the chakra layout.

For this healing technique you will need one red stone, one orange, one yellow, one green or pink, one light blue, one dark blue, one white, clear or violet, and one dark stone. All stones should be approximately the same size and weight.

This method is the same as the first, except that colored stones are used instead of clear quartz crystals.

The dark stone or smoky quartz should be placed at the feet for grounding.

Stress Release and Energizing Crystal Layout

The remaining stones should be placed at chakra centres according to color: red on the root chakra centre, orange on the sacral, yellow on the solar plexus, green on the heart centre, light blue on the throat, dark blue on the third eye and white, golden or violet on the crown centre.

  • Red Stone - Most Popular stone Red Jasper.
  • Orange Stone - Most Popular stone Carnelian.
  • Yellow Stone - Yellow Jasper or Citrine are most often used.
  • Green Stone - Green Aventurine or Rose Quartz you can also try a Watermelon Tourmaline which is a mix of green and pink.
  • Light Blue Stone - Blue Lace Agate or you can use Turquoise.
  • Dark Blue Stone - Lapis Lazuli works well and so does Sodalite.
  • Clear or Violet Stone - Amethyst or Clear Quartz.

The above crystal healing techniques are also referred to as the laying on of stones. It is a very powerful way to perform crystal healing on yourself or others and the purpose of the laying on of stones is to release etheric, emotional, mental or spiritual blocks to well-being.

Tracing the Meridians

I use a clear quartz point in this technique but trust your intuition and choose a crystal to use. Trace the chosen crystal over your meridian lines and press the acupressure points with it. It is a long and tedious procedure and requires some basic acupressure knowledge, but it is extremely effective since it combines the benefits of both crystal healing therapy as well as acupressure.

Figure Eight Looping

This is another one of those very effective crystal healing techniques and involves making the figure eight with the crystal by looping all the chakras together and works very well for aligning and balancing the chakras.
