Although stones have been used to treat the body, mind, and spirit, stone healing is not meant to replace conventional medicine. The most important thing to keep in mind when beginning to use stones for healing purposes is that a stone’s healing power is relatively inert until you intentionally direct its energy. It is not the stone that possesses healing energy; it is your intent to heal by way of the stone. This information is purely metaphysical and is by no means medical. Stone Healing should only be used with the understanding that it is not an independent therapy, but one that is part of a greater holistic healing approach.
