Gem Therapy is based on the Chinese concept of life-energy and the Hindu or Buddhist concept of chakras: seven centres of spiritual power in the human body that connect the physical and spiritual levels. The belief behind the chakra philosophy of disease is that disease on any of the issues is caused by an energy imbalance.
Therefore, gemstones are used to channel positive healing energy into our bodies and help gem therapy release any negative vibrations that may be obstructing our physical health.
The basic principles of gem therapy are the healing properties assigned to each gemstone. Amethysts, for instance, will be indicated for someone with gastrointestinal ailments; green aventurine will aid in preventing heart disease; and yellow topaz is believed to strengthen our attention and increase focus and concentration.
